Partial Image Focal Point

Good morning! Dropping by with a card and Quick Tip video this morning using a brand new Phyllis Harris Release from Unity Stamp Company called Faith Looks Up!


I thought it would be fun, instead of using the entire image, to just create a focal point with part of it. Here is a peek at what I did:


I love how simple it is and all that lovely white space as well!

Day and Night Woodland Cards on PPP Blog

Good morning! I have this cute day and night card set posted over on the Pretty Pink Posh blog today - head HERE for details!


Thanks for dropping by! Have a wonderful day!

Wiggly Eye Birds!

Good morning! Today I'm sharing a couple more cards using the beautiful pre-printed Watercolor Paintables by Suzy Plantamura from the Cherished release from Simon Says Stamp - I got home from the dentist yesterday with my mouth completely numb (my appointment was at 9 am and the numbness didn't go away until 6 pm...so let's just say it was a long day!). I sat down with my girls to watch a movie, and pulled a couple of these to just slowly color to help keep my mind off of my numb mouth...and being hungry and not able to chew anything! Haha!


It was nice to have no rush on my time and just color these in nice and slowly, layering on color.


Once they dried - just for fun - I added a wiggly eye to each of the birds! I used a smaller one for the first card, and a larger one for this next one, trying to slightly match them to the size of the printed eye on each of them.


I trimmed down the sides just slightly, then mounted them on a white card base. So easy it almost feels like cheating!

Hey there, beautiful!

Good morning! Stopping by today a happy and summery little Reverse Confetti card!


I used the darling little flamingos from the recently released Think Pink Stamp set to stamp a background on watercolor paper, then watercolored it in. I then die cut the pinked circle from Flowers for Mom Confetti Cuts out of vellum, and the banner out of black cardstock to heat emboss my sentiment. Once my background dried, I added some black splatters, allowed it to dry again, then layered the circle and banner along with some silver thread and a few sparkly pink sequins.


Also linking this up with a couple challenges - first up the SSS Monday Challenge - Let's Take a Vacation:




And finally, this week's Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes:


Here are the Reverse Confetti supplies I used on this card - click on any of the photos to get a closer look at anything:
