Watts of Occasions

Hello Stampers!  Hope your week is going well.

I was inspired this week by the sketch challenge over at Paper Craft Crew to use a stamp set that is retiring, the Watts of Occasions. I love this stamp set and won't be getting rid of it, I feel like I still haven't used it enough.  Anyhow, make sure you check out the designers over at Paper Craft Crew, beautiful creations. I find that their sketch challenges push my creativity level and make me feel like an artist. Definitely want to play along with them more often.

I used the Brusho Crystal Colour, the yellow one on water color paper. I do confess that while I've had the Brusho since the beginning of the year, this was the first time I used it. I know, crazy!  I had fun playing with it and can't wait to play with the other colors. The splatter is from the retired stamp set Gorgeous Grunge, which was embossed in white. I really like this sketch and will used again with the other images from the Watts of Occasions stamp set. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a great week.

May Blog Hop

Hello Stampers and Friends!  Hope you are doing well.  It's May 1st and that means it's time for another fun blog hop with my fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrators with Di's Country INKers.  The theme this month is Mother's Day. Great time to plan ahead and create some cards with this theme.

 I played along with the Designers over at CAS(E) this Sketch! this week. Their sketch inspired me to create a clean and simple card. Check out their blog for more inspiration.

I used the new stamp set called "Love What You Do" and it will be featured in the upcoming new annual catalog!  Better yet, you can purchase it now! The sentiments in the stamp set are beautiful. The base of my card is thick Whisper White, with Flirty Flamingo card stock. I inked the leaves in a new ink color and new InColor, Call Me Clover, it's a bright green color. I added some colorful bling with the Tutti-Fruti Adhesive Backed Sequins and the Glitter and Clear Epoxy Shapes from the Occasions catalog. I spelled out "Mom" with the Hand Lettered Alphabet stamp set. My color combo for this card was Call Me Clover, Flirty Flamingo and Powder Pink.

Can't wait to see what Connie has in store for us. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a great week.
