Sending Bugs & Kisses and Happy Birthday ....

Hello and Happy Wednesday !

I am stopping by to share a couple of 
cards with you today . 

The first card is the card I created for 
the CDD May Social Media Challenge . 
Today is the last day to participate . 

I used the brand new 
Ladybug Garden stamp set 
for my card . 

 I paired these cuties with the Picture Frame die . 

 For the grass I used the Outdoor Landscapes die . 

 For the color combination I used the R46, R27, R17 , R05 and R11 . 
For the super cute caterpillar I used YG17, YG13, YG03 and YG00. 

This stamp set is adorable !! I love creating with it !! 

For the second set of cards I was once again inspired by the 
Altenew May Inspiration Challenge . 
I love the color combination !! 

I once again used the beautiful Hibiscus Bouquet stamp set ( LOVE the size of the flowers ) . 
This set is great for practicing watercoloring . 

 I created two cards , using the same cardstock the Strathmore Bristol . 
 I used the same watercolors and Copic color combinations on both , I will list them below . 
 I adore the sentiment from the
Halftone Happy stamp set <3 . 

Thank you so very much for taking the time to stop by today !! 
I wish you a wonderful and Blessed day !

You make Me Happy with Altenew ....

Happy Monday everyone !! 

I wanted to share this card I created using 
the beautiful Hibiscus Bouquet 
stamp set from Altenew . 

For this card I was inspired by the May 2017 Inspiration Challenge . 
The photo along with the vibrant colors instantly inspired me . 

 I began by stamping my images using Memento Ink in the color Desert Sand , 
it is my favorite for the soft look . 
For my card base and layers I used Strathmore Bristol 100lb paper.
 I then began by adding a soft layer to each of the larger flowers using Winsor & Newton water color marker in the color Pale Rose , for the smaller flowers I used my Zig Clean Color Brush Marker in the color Pink Flamingo . 
 I let them dry and then added my deeper tones . 
I used Winsor & Newton water color marker in the color Magenta , 
then added a bit of Pink and Peach Pink (Zig ) . 
 For the leaves I actually used Copic markers . 
I mixed my YG17 , along with the G99 for the depth .  
I then added a bit of G94 and YG13 . 

 For the scalloped base I used the large scalloped die from the Scalloped Nice & Neat dies from Neat & Tangled  ( they are back in stock ) . 
I added Picked Raspberry Distress Ink all around the edges .

I hope you enjoy the card I created to share with you today ! 
Wishing you all a wonderful and Blessed day !
