Trinity Stamps Spring Fling Blog Hop

Super excited to be a part of the Trinity Stamps Spring Fling New Release Blog Hop




I used the "Rainy Days together" stamp set for my first card.  
My stamped images are colored with Altenew alcohol markers and Polychromos color pencils. 

  These little ducks are so cute. 

The Raining Rhinestones are a perfect embellishment to add a little Bling to my card. 

For my second card I used The "Puddle Jumpers" stamp set. 


I masked off the little jumping boy and added the Jumping frog to the center of the puddle. This cute frog makes me smile. I also colored this stamped image with Altenew markers and Polychromos pencils.  I like layering the 2 coloring mediums together for more depth of color. 

The sentiment on my card is a combo from the New mini Hello sentiment set
and the Puddle Jumpers set.
a few Limeade Parade confetti pieces complete my card.




For my last card I used the Hello SentiMini stamp with 
matching Hello die and the Rainbow & cloud dies.


I colored the Rainbow die cut pieces with Polychoromos colored pencil

I love this sentiment  "I Miss Your Face"


Thanks for hopping by today.
Happy Scrappin'

My newest stamping obsession

Unity Stamps!! My newest Stamp obsession. 

If you know me at all you know I love stamping, coloring, card making and Scrap booking. 

I have known about Unity stamps for several years.  I always liked their Angie Girls line of stamps since seeing them used when creating Pocket cards for scrapbooking.  Super cute images of pretty ladies with heartfelt sentiments.  

Well now after shopping a few of their amazing sales I am building quite a fun collection of stamps. 

Here's a peek at a few I have fallen in love with. 


These stamps are deeply etched red rubber stamps
Made in the USA 

 Here are a few of my recent stamping projects using these fun stamps.  I have joined a few of the Facebook challenges hosted in the Unity Show and Tell group.  The challenges are fun and help you think outside the box when using the fun stamp themes. 

You are forever Beautiful

Well thanks for stopping by today.  Stay tuned for more fun Unity projects in the future.

Trinity Stamps “Snail Mail” Creative Challenge

Hi Crafty friends. 

Today I am sharing with you my entry into the Trinity Stamps “Snail Mail” inspired Creative Challenge . For March. 

I used the super cute Mr.Snail Man stamp set for my card 



I colored my images with Faber Castell Polychomos colored pencils blended with Gamsol.  I decided to cut my card base with the Square window trio die from Honey Bee Stamps   I backed the window opening with some landscape patterned paper then added my colored images. I attached them with some 3D foam squares for some dimension and interest. The Big HOORAY is from the Honey Bee Stamps sentiment set.    I stamped the Snail mail sentiment and the cute floating hearts from the Mr. Snail Man set also to complete my card. 

I am going to try and enter all the Crafty challenges each month and I will share with you all my entries. 
I hope this inspires you to enter also. 
For details on the monthly challenges check out the Trinity Stamps Blog. 

Until next time.

Playing with Alcohol Inks

 Today I am going to show you 3 different cards I created using some fun Ranger alcohol ink backgrounds and Honey Bee Stamps & dies. 



I made these backgrounds just for fun during the 30 day coloring challenge by The Daily Marker with Kathy Racoosin .  The free form flowing of these inks are mesmerizing.  If you haven't tried it yet, do so soon.   So after I made these backgrounds I decided to create some fun cards to share. 


For my first card I cut out the word HELLO, from some fun foam, using Honey Bee Stamps BEE Bold Alpha dies.  I also cut the HELLO from the center of my background card and then layered the letters onto the foam.  I added a few pretty Rainbow Rhinestones to finish off my card. 


  Oh, and don't forget the inside.  I stamped this Friendship sentiment to complete the card. 

For my next card I used the negative cut from the fun foam. I brushed on some glitter ink but its hard to see in the photo.  I scallop cut the background using the A2 scallop die  adding a Pretty Mermaid from the Under the Sea stamp set colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. A few more Rainbow rhinestones complete this card. 


For my last card I created these free form flowers using the alcohol inks, I brushed on some stems and leaves, added a couple cute Honey Bees and the Happy BEEday sentiment from the Hi Honey stamp set  This card was finished off with some fun twisted twine. 



 I hope my projects inspire you to play with some Alcohol inks and Honey Bee Stamps to create your own unique cards.  


Thanks for stopping by today. 
Until next time

Friendship Watercolor Card


Hello happy crafters and card makers. Today I am here to share a fun watercolor technique I learned while taking a class with the Waffle Flower team at Creativation! 



To achieve this soft water color floral background I scribbled ink from some Zig Art & Graphic Twin markers onto my Water Media mat. ( I will talk about this amazing mat at the end of my blog post. )  I spritzed the ink with water and then stamped a few Spring Blossoms from Honey Bee stamps.  The paper I used is smooth Bristol and I did not wet my paper first. 


After stamping out my blooms I picked up some color with my water brush pen and colored in the blooms is a messy water color fashion. 


  I did the same thing with some pretty greens for the leaves on my card. 


I took a long cotton swap and dipped into the paint to add a few dots as an accent. I also paint flicked a few splatters across my card. 



I just love adding a few little bees for embellishment, so I stamped out a few from this Bee Hive stamp set and then die cut them to add to my finished card.  I always color the wings with a clear star jelly roll pen for some Sparkle.

I stamped the sentiment using the HBS Friendship sentiment set This stamp set is the perfect addition to your card making collection.  So many wonderful sentiments to add to your cards. 

To complete my card I layered some pretty papers and foam mounted the card panel 
for some dimension.  


 *** Note about the NEW and coming soon Water Media Mat from Waffle Flower Crafts. Click this link to read all about it. (  I received this mat when I took the class at Creativation. ) ** Rumor has it that it will be available in the Honey Bee Stamps shop soon.......
