My heart is wherever you are

Hello friends!
Goodness, I've been trying to post this card for several days, I've been busy, busy and busy!
You have probably heard/read Washington State got A LOT of snow, a storm, frigid temperatures and lots of inside time! lol
Yesterday, I spent time outside and even made a snowman, so much fun, but to be honest, I want Spring to come and stay forever, hahaha.

Anyways, let's talk about this card,  super easy and elegant one, few supplies and a wow result ;)
I really love how it turned out.

Using some washi tape or tape, secure the Adored Frame Stencil to a piece of watercolor paper.
Use Rose Ink and a brush to apply ink.
Spry Dazzle Shimmering Bliss Topper and gently remove the stencil, some areas will change color, love the effect.
Stamp My Heart sentiment in Chocolate Ink.
Add little dots of White and Rhubarb Crumble Nuvo drops.

You can see the shimmer on the panel, it is beautiful!!

Impression Obsession Old is New: Doodle Heart

Hello friends!
Sometimes we get so busy with new released stamps that we forget about our old favorites. The Impression Obsession team has set aside a couple days a month to share some new projects using some great older stamps. You can see the list of today’s participants on the Impression Obsession blog

So for today "Old is New" I have this cute Love Doodle Heart.
I stamped the Doodle Heart image on white cardstock in Rose Ink, then colored the image with alcohol markers (I used Spectrum Noir)
Die-cut the image using square dies and adhered it to a scallop pink piece. Add to card base.
Stamped the Simply Love sentiment in Cherry Ink direct on front of white card base.
Tied twined and make a bow.
Add little dots of White Nuvo drops around the frame.

Hope you like it.

Impression Obsession Challenge: In the Pink

Hello friends!!!
Welcome to another fun Impression Obsession Challenge, Christmas is just around the corner and sometimes we need quick and easy Christmas cards, well, that is our challenge this time "In the Pink"

All the details can be found at the Impression Obsession  Blog.
A random challenge card will be selected to be showcased on the IO blog AND you can enter to win a $25 gift certificate to IO just by playing! (IO stamps need to be used).

I was talking to a friend yesterday and found out her mom was in the hospital, she is a really nice lady and we have had good laughs before, so I made this card especially for her.

This is the card I created for today's challenge.
For this project I used Watercolor Butterfly Garden, stamped them in Rose Ink and Chocolate Ink.
Also used Goldenrod and Cherry ink to stamp the little images (used the second generation of ink).
Then, stamped Gentle Hugs sentiment in Chocolate Ink as well.
Added few pearls and sequins.

Disclaimer: The picture looks a little darker than it is IRL. The butterflies are a pretty dark pink color.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Have a wonderful day!

IO Die-cut Obsession: Happy Birthday

Hello friends!
The Impression Obsession Design Team have set aside a couple days a month to share some fabulous new Impression Obsession die projects! Have fun checking out what our Designers have made today. Today's participants can be found on the Impression Obsession Blog

I created a very Clean and Simple card this time.
For this project I used Cake Die and Greetings Top Edgers.

Die-cut watercolor piece using Cake and Greeting Top Edgers and set aside.
Die-cut a couple of extra cakes, glue them together and set aside.
Cut a piece of patterned paper and adhere it to a white card base. Cut a little stripe of Pink shimmering cardstock.
Adhere sentiment and cake.
Add pearls to cake.

After editing my pictures, I thought the card was too CAS [{wink, wink} so I added  Rhurbarb Crumble, Dandelion Yellow and Caribbean Ocean Nuvo Drops. Still Looks CAS, but with a little extra.

Which one do you prefer?
