I colored my images using Copic markers and added a bit of glitter on the bride&

The stamp set I used is called Gnome-One Like You (how adorable is that name for stamp set?!?) and the Starry Night Stencil .      After watching videos from Jennifer McGuire using the gel press, I knew I had to try it with the Starry Night stencil to create a fun background for my card.      I used some of my distress oxide inks on my gel press to give different colors and textures to my backgro

     Hello! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. I'm excited to share with you how I made today's card using supplies from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps .     Have you ever told yourself, "I'm going to do something totally different & out of my comfort zone"? Well, I did for this card, hahaha! I tend to stay in my comfort zone for long periods but once in awhile (and I'm trying to do this more often) I do something totally different to see if I can do it.      I have never applied color directly onto kraft card stock. I've seen others do it and I'm like, WOW! That is really awesome how they colored the images on that kind of card stock. Well my crafty friends, I was surprised on how mine turned out! I will definitely be doing this technique more often.     I used Prismacolor color pencils to color the beautiful lilies from the Alleluia Lilies set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps . After I colored the lilies, I used one of my neutral color Copi

Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone When Making A Card

  Good morning! Today I want to share a card that I was a bit apprehensive to share only because it was different that what I usually do. But that is the fun part about being creative, right? To do something different, to step out of your comfort zone. Well that is what I did with this card! I used the Alleluia Lilies stamps and dies & the Easter Innies stamps from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps for this project. I wanted to do a mirror image of the stamp but, guess what? I did not have a mirror image stamp to do this! So instead, I used the back part of one of my large background stamps! It did not work as well (backgrounds stamps are not meant for that, hahaha!) but I still made it work! To color the images I got brave and used a technique I learned from Jennifer McGuire to stamp image on foam, cut the images, and use your favorite inks( I used The Stamp Market inks ) to color the inside of the image. For the background of this card I used dies from Altenew and Catherine Pooler
