[Pretty Pink Posh] Crocus Flowers Card

Hi, friends!
I hope you are having a wonderful day.
Last weekend, I had fun coloring beautiful Crocus Flowers from Pretty Pink Posh January Release. So I'm sharing a card with you, today. 

To begin, I stamped Crocus Flowers on Heavy Weight Watercolor paper using Distress ink Antique Linen, then I watercolored them. I used various watercolor media including Rose of Ultramarine and Gamboge from Daniel Smith, and Watetcolor Brush Markers. I added more shades using my polychromo pencils. After I finished colorimg, I cut them all using Crocus Flowers Coordinating Dies.

I trimmed a piece of Bristol paper into A2 size, and ink blended it using Distress Oxide inks (Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass, and Mermaid Lagoon) . 

Next, I stamped Courage sentiment on top of the panel, and then I adhered Crocus Flowers using Glue Dots and Foam Adhesives.  After I foam mounted my panel to a card base, I added double stranded twine ribbon , Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix, 6mm Lime Sorbet and 4mm Lime Sorbet sequins.

Thank you for reading this post.
I hope you enjoyed it. 
Have a wonderful day!

[Simon Says Stamp] January 2019 Card Kit inspiration

Hi, friends!
Today, I'm going to share a card featuring Simon Says Stamp January 2019 card kit.
I had already shared two cards in last  week's post, and here's another one. 

I diecut a piece of blue paper from the kit, which is Celebrate Winter 6×6, using Wonky Rectangles Dies.Then I diecut a smaller Wonky Rectangle out of red heart pattern paper (Knit Picky 6×6).  I also diecut a tag using Stitched Dress up Tag and scraps. 

Next, I adhered each layer giving some dimension, then I foam mounted snowman and penguim from Snow Much Stamp set. A sentiment from Floral Hearts set was heat embossed in white using Fine Embossing Powder. Finally, I embellished my card with pom poms included in the kit, 3mm sparkling clear sequins, and ribbon. 

Copic Marker No : BG09-BG07-BG05, Y38-Y35-Y15, W3-W1-W0-W00, C3-C1-C0, R46-R29-R14
