Whimsy Stamp's July Release!

Hi friends!
Today is Whimsy Stamp's July release!  I used the super cute set called, Life is Cool.   I used a no line water coloring technique using my Karin Brushmarkers.  I used the new Revealers Die to create the "pool."  I adhered it to coordinating circles using Crafty Foam Tape and the Pierced and Stitched Circles Die. 

I added a few clear droplets and sequins to finish the card off.  
And this is the reason my posts have been sparse lately. My son just graduated phase 1 of Nuke school for the Navy.  He has been on liberty this past week and we have been trying to cram as much in as we can. 
I even had Cortney home over night and she got to see her brother.  My house is messy, busy, and my heart couldn't be any fuller.  
Next week, life gets back to "normal" for me and I should be resuming my regular crafty schedule.  ;)
Thank you for stopping by and supporting my little corner of the cardmaking world!
Be sure to stop by Whimsy Stamps to see the full release!

Elegant Butterfly Take 2~

This past week has been a whirlwind! We drove 16 hours to South Carolina to see my son after 6 months.  He flew back with his dad and me and will be home until next week.  So needless to say I haven't been crafting much. But I did manage a few cards before I left.  This is Whimsy Stamp's Elegant Butterfly.  I applied color directly to the rubber stamp using my Karin Brushmarkers and my Misti.  Then I stamped it again with Versamark Ink and embossed it in clear embossing powder.  It gives it a pretty raised look and makes the colors pop a bit more.  I dusted off the ole' sewing machine and used the black and white striped paper from the 6 x 6 Fabulous Florals. 
The sentiment is from the Simple Sentiment Strips. It was stamped on black paper with Versamark and embossed in white.  I cut it into a strip and used Crafty Foam Tape to pop it up in the center. For a finishing touch I adhered a few gems from the All is Calm Sparkletz collection.

Thank you for stopping by!
