Olive Oak Celebrate

Watercolor is so fun! It's not just for kids anymore. I made a couple cards when I got on this watercolor kick, but I am just going to show you one for now (this one is my favorite).

I love this card so much and I had a great time making it! I hope you like it too!

Happy Birthday Sunshine

I've used this set a couple times because I just can't get enough of the Sunshine Sayings bundle! I also really like how this color combination turned out. Not too bright. I used the Versamark ink for the background design. Enjoy!

Paper Pumpkin June 2016

Whew! I'm finally getting this post out! I actually had a lot of fun doing this project (while re-watching all the Star Wars movies!).

Here is the original project plan:

But, I wanted to make it my own ... so here's what I came up with:

Cute, right? I had a lot of fun with this months Project Pumpkin. I love the stripes especially. Plus anything with sparkly sequins is always fun in my book!

Have a great day!

TGIF Challenge #73

This challenge is really cool! I love using negative space to enhance a card. Here is the challenge graphic for TGIF this week:

You can check out the challenge at TGIF. The cards their team came up with are super cute!!

Here is my submission. I thought it turned out pretty cute even though it is really simple.

I really love how the gold washi tape looks like behind the "happy". I think I got a pretty good picture of it too! Hope you like it and have a great day!

CYCI Challenge #138

My first challenge! I came across this challenge from Can You Case It?

They do a challenge every Sunday.

This came at a perfect time since I finally started catching up on some projects including my Paper Pumpkin subscription boxes (I still have a few to do!) So, this post is also a sneak peek of the June 2016 Paper Pumkin post!

Here it is!

As usual I did not follow the original design that came with the Paper Pumpkin subscription. I made it my own, a la me!

I hope you like it!

I love the Sunshine Sayings Bundle from Stampin' Up and I couldn't wait to try it out!

I absolutely adore it when they come out with die cuts that are whole words. It really makes the card pop when you can add 3D elements, especially when they are the words.

I wanted to keep it simple so I just used a couple colors. Then I cut my dimensionals down really small to fit behind the words.

Paper: Whisper White, Soft Sky
Ink: Staz On Black, Soft Sky, Versamark
Stamps: Gorgeous Grunge, Sunshine Sayings
Sunshine Wishes Thinlets

Just for You

I made this card for a competition at the Stampin' Up Extravaganza. I did not win, but I had fun with it anyway. Plus all the cards were donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charity at the end.

I really had fun with the watercolor paper. Makes me feel like a kid again! I hope you like it!
