Sunshine and Flowers

Hello High Hopes Fans!

Time for my Friday High Hopes post.

I have been in such a bright, summery mood this week!

Today's card sums up the perfect weather we have been having in California.

The image is called Fragrant Blooms.


This is a large 6' x 6" card that I made for one of my co-workers.

I colored the image with Prisma pencils and blended with Gamsol and blending stumps.

Colors used: Mulberry, Burnt Ochre, Peach, Sunburst, Apple Green Aquamarine, orange, grass green



The sentiment is Hello Sunshine.


The patterned paper is Doodlebug Designs Sunkissed paper pack.

Beach Girl

Happy Monday!

I hope your had a great weekend!
The Stampendous team is still celebrating the sea but this week we are celebrating all tha happens above the sea.  

My project features new Pink Your Life Stamps, Whisper Friends Beach Friends perfectly clear stamp set.


I LOVE how this turned out...exactly like it was in my head and that doesn't happen very often!

I stenciled the Waves on light blue cardstock with regular embossing paste.
After it dried I spread embossing paste across the bottom and covered it with Golden Sand embossing powder.  I heated the powder until it melted.

then i cut the top of the panel off trimming close to the waves and adhered it to the card.


I stamped all the images on white cardstock with black ink and colored with Prisma colored pencils.


Here's a couple more fun projects:

Jellyfish

The Stampendous Design Team is celebrating all the creatures "Under the Sea" this week!

Today I am sharing a beautiful card that I made with the Jellyfish stencil.


To create the background I added drops of Red Violet, Ultramarine Blue, and Opaque white Deco Art Acrylic paint to a Creative Palette. Then I lay a panel of white cardstock over the palette and pressed the backside.


Once dry, I stenciled the jellyfish over the top with Pearlescent Embossing Paste.

While the paste was still wet I sprinkled Crystal Micro Glitter over the top to add a little sparkle.
