Pretty Butterflies & Caterpillars -New Stamp Release with Unity Stamp Company-

Yes! Surprise! We have been working behind the scenes with Unity Stamp Company to bring you new rubber stamp kits! We have added 3 new kits to my rubber stamp collection for Unity and we couldn't be more excited! Today Unity's designers are sharing beautiful inspiration projects and I decided to join them too with this card and tag featuring images from the new Spark stamp kit.  

The sentiments in this kit are very meaningful to me and I always, always try to encourage and lift people's spirit with every stamp set I design, because I know just how hard life can get at times... I believe that an uplifting word can make a difference. I hope that you love this kit and that you use it a lot too.




I absolutely love the color combination on these projects! I don't remember the last time I used a deep blue like this... I'm infatuated! (smile) But it all started with the coloring of the stamped images. The coloring usually determines what I will do next with my card design. I used Spectrum Noir markers in vintage blues for the butterfly on the tag and blues and turquoises for the one on the card. The caterpillar is colored with SN greens. I applied some SN sparkle to the images after I colored them and that added a nice shimmer!

I used beautiful patterned papers, most of them from Simple Stories. The bold blue background though is from DCWV. I played with color and mixed patterns quite a bit to create a modern and fresh combination. I love the final look of both the card and tag!

Bible Journaling with Pan Pastel, Deco Foil, TCW and Unity Stamp Co.

I promised I would be back with a new art journaling inspiration project today... This might as well become a habit! This time I have a page from Psalm 31 that I handdrawn and colored with PanPastel. The softness of the PanPastel goes so well with the bible pages and it so easy to blend and color with.
I knew I wanted a bold floral image on this page. I love floral illustrations and I had to try out this Magnolia here. I handdrawn the flower in pencil first inspired by a photograph online. This time I did not feel the need to prep my page because I was not going to be using any wet media on it. Then I started shading my flower starting with a 430.5 Magenta, adding highlights with 380.8 Red Oxide Tint and 100.5 Titanium White (trying not to touch the rest of the image and only blending it on the lightest spots of the flower). I also added 470.8 Violet Tint to create a little bit of shadows but since my coloring is usually whimsical it is ok if the tones shadows and highlights are so r…

Pears & Flowers Step Card

You may know by now that I try to make time to create projects for some of my favorite challenges. I particularly enjoy the challenges back at the Mod Squad Challenge. This week the host is Lee... She is a great host... Love her! She challenged us to use something with a Fruit or Harvest theme... Yes, it's a Fruitful Harvest challenge!

I really wanted to create something special for Lee, so I took my time. Here is my design:




I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and two pears in gold. The first are from Flourishes' Over the Garden Gate stamp set, and the last are from Inky Antics' Holy Spirit's Fruit.

I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering anoth…
