Have you seen the Concord & 9th - Hello Lovely set?! I knew I had to have it...I actually don't own many floral sets but there is something about bouquets or clusters of blooms that I just love.
I stamped the main image with Hero Arts Soft Brown Shadow Ink and colored it in with Zig Clean Color Markers. I alternated with scribbling in with the lighter shades and then layering the darker shades with my watercolor brush + water.
I wish that you could see the Wink of Stella that I brushed on the pink blooms. I also used the speckled stamp with Delicata Gold.
I was inspired by Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge:
Thanks so much for stoppin' by!

I LOVE a long weekend...I was able to craft up a storm. This card came together quickly for me. I combined products by My Favorite Things with the STAMPlorations - Nordic Knit Tag set by Kimberly Wiener. I wanted to add a winter flair to my design and that nordic pattern was the perfect print! Kimberly is a dear friend of mine, full of talent + kindness.
I used the MFT - Die-namics LLD Tea Party set with a retired sentiment set (I know, I can't believe MFT retired that!). Do you see where I used the MFT Stitched Scallop Basic Edge?
I'm definitely an equal opportunity caffeine drinker. I love both coffee + tea. My current favorite hot beverage is a London Fog Tea Latte with Coconut Milk.
I was inspired by the current MFT Sketch Challenge:
Back to work for me...leaving for CHA on Friday! Who else will be there?!

I had so much fun designing this tag! I used the Hero Arts Kelly's S'mitten Stamp & Cut set. The mittens have been paper pieced with Blush Mixed Layering Paper. The snowflakes have been heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.
This was inspired by the Tag, You're it challenge:

Hello and Happy Saturday! I'm spending the day with a bunch of friends, going shopping and then out to dinner to celebrate a birthday! What are your plans for today?
I have a card to share with you! I'm trying to make a couple holiday cards a month so that this November things won't be so crazy chaotic. I'm hoping to send out my holiday cards during the Thanksgiving weekend. A tradition I use to do and need to get back to so that I can enjoy my December!
The Reverse Confetti Bearing Gifts stamps + coordinating confetti cuts are so cute, eh?! They could easily work for a wintertime card too. I watercolored and colored the images with Zig Clean Color Markers.
My card was inspired by Kimberly's Muse: ChristmasVisions.
Isn't her card fun?! Love that guy! I stayed with the overall color palette and design.
