JustRite's November Release!

It's a snowy morning here and I am a day late getting this post up for JustRite's November release. 
I seem to be a day late and a dollar short these days. 
I could give you all of the reasons why, but I will save that for another day. ;)
I am sharing a card made with JustRite's adorable new set, We Are Having a Baby. 
Created by Michele Kovack
I stamped the image with black Staz on ink and water colored it using my Zig Clean Brush Markers.  I splattered it with a bit of black water color and of course had to add a bit of glitter to the balloons. The circle dies are from Tattered Lace

I threaded a bit of silk ribbon from the Stamp Simply store. The background was inked with yellow, orange, and pink Tim Holtz inks.  I splattered it with a bit of water for that cool pooling effect. I added a few sequins and a tiny pearl to the teddy bear's bow.

Blog Hop with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Altnew!



I am so excited to be a part of the Altnew/Scrapbook Adhesives blog hop! There is so much inspiration awaiting you....AND prizes to be won! 
I have two cards to share with you today. Both cards use this gorgeous set from Altnew called, Floral Motifs.
I used a stencil and sponged Tim Holtz inks.  I spritzed it with a bit of water. The flowers were stamped with Versamark and embossed in white. 
I colored the flowers and leaves with my Zig Clean Brush Markers. I adhered the layers with Crafty Foam Tape. 
I added a glittery strip using double sided tape from Scrapbook Adhesives. The pretty silk ribbon is from the Stamp Simply Store. 
I was on a water coloring kick, so I created another card in a more monochromatic scheme.  

I again used my Zig Clean Brush Markers, crafty Foam Tape, and Dodz™ to adhere the flowers' centers.  The velvet ribbon is from the Stamp Simply store. 

Each company is giving away two $30.00 prizes!  
Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop. Comments must be left by Monday, Nov 23 11:59pm EST. Winners will be announced on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Altenew blogs on Nov 25th.

Your Support Means Everything!

Good morning  my friends! I have a new card today with minimal embellishments! (gasp!) After spending a bit of time coloring this beautiful rose by Crafty Secrets, I didn't want to take away from it. The digital image can be found HERE.  I used my Prisma colored pencils and a white gel pen.  The background was given a bit of depth using Tim Holtz inks in shades of brown, green, yellow, and blue. I masked off the rose and gave it a bit of black water color splatter.

The sentiment was cut from the Girlfriend Creative Scraps.  I threaded some sheer gold ribbon vertically to finish off the card.

I am fighting a cold and woke up this morning with no voice.  Teaching 26 kids might be a bit of a challenge today! ;)
Wish me luck.....I'm gonna need it!
