Less is More - Vehicles

Another fun week of tennis and outdoor activities.  Just love this summer weather!

Remember, I have a giveaway happening now---check it out here!

We have another challenge starting today at Less is More.  Our theme for this challenge is a One Layer Card and Vehicles.  I was thinking of going with cars, but then decided on a camping theme. Here's my take on the challenge...



I started by stamping and masking my images.  I then used distressed ink to add the background, then used my copics to color the main images.  In the end, pretty quick and simple.




Here's a close up of the card.  You can see it has no dimension, so it will be easy to mail.

Look forward to seeing what you come up with!

CAS on Friday - Birthday

We have a new challenge starting over at CAS on Friday!  Our theme for this week is Birthday!  Just perfect as we are moving into the busy birthday season for our family.

Remember, I have a giveaway happening now---check it out here!

Here's my take on the challenge.  Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!



For my main image, I stamped this cute guy and masked him.  I then added a few balloons!  I colored him with Copic markers.  I then thought this fun sentiment from Penny Black would go nicely so I cut it out and used my distress inks to add a bit of an ombre effect!

I really wanted to add a bit of Wink of Stella, but thought as a masculine card, that might be a bit too much!





Here's a close up of the card.  You can see I added a bit of foam tape to the sentiment to make it pop.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Less is More - Tropical Fruit

We are on the tail end of a heat wave and I have to say I'm happy to have it come to an end.  Being outside is so fun, but not when it is too hot!  Anywho...lots of great tennis this week and some time in the studio.

Don't forget to check out my latest Giveaway...here!

We have another challenge starting today at Less is More.  Our theme for this challenge is Tropical Fruit Colors.  I have no fruit stamps which would have been fun to use for this challenge! However, I do have lots of drink stamps---not sure what that says about me...but decided to focus on tropical fruit drinks.  Here's my take on the challenge...





This is a one layer card.  A simple card with a bit of simple masking. Coloring with Copics and done!






Here's a bit of a close up!  Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Addicted to CAS - One Layer Card


Another beautiful week! The husband is feeling better this week, so we are off to play tennis!  Nothing better than a day on the court with the husband!

I have a Giveaway going on.  If you are interested, check it out here!

We have another challenge starting today at Addicted to CAS!  The theme for this week is One Layer Card.  My favorite!  Here's what I came up with...






I stamped this image and colored it with my Copics.  These Stamping Bella images are so fun to color and I find that everyone seems to love receiving these cards.

Just to add a bit of sparkle, I added a few stars at the end as a finishing touch.



Here's a bit of a close up of the card.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
