Simon Says anything goes

My goal is to upload for a few days in a row. I am not sure that this will be accomplished, but everyone needs a goal :)

I am trying to decide if I should keep this stamp set and die from PTI, for some reason, I have a hard time working well with it. This was one of the cards I made in an attempt to use it. This is one of my submissions for the Simon Says Anything goes challenge.

What do you think? Do any of you have this set or love this set? If you could leave a link to a card you made with it, that would be wonderful!

It's a good life!

Simon says use punches

I have another beauty for the Simon Says challenge. After taking the Inspiration Showcase class with Jennifer McGuire I am loving getting inky and all of those fabulous techniques. This is another 2 of them.

What do you think? I first dry embossed the background and then smeared ink all over it. The baloons were stamped onto water color paper and then I applied distress ink and spritzed with water. Tons of great color movement and fun.

It' a good life!

Wishing you....

2 posts in the same day? I know it is madness LOL! This is for the Simon Says challenge I used dies on the flower, they are from papertreyink. I cut them out of the sticky pack canvas and then painted them with claudine helmouth paint. LOVE that!
Have a fabulous day!
It's a good life!

Make it Saturday

I am a day earlier than I normally am and it is fabulous! Do any of you make cards for different challenges and then not get them uploaded/posted in time? That seems to be a theme of mine lately. The beneifit to that is that I have a stack of cute cards LOL!

I made this beauty for Make it Monday, frosted images challenge and the Color Q challenge. I LOVE that one, but don't get to play along as much as I would like.

Didn't the frosted technique turn out fun? I took the technique class from Jennifer McGuire recetnly and I must say I have a new love of smearing and getting all kinds of inky when creating. This technique lent itself well to that also, so it was a blast. I used the soft stone paper for the center piece and like the subtle results I had with the frosting.

I stamped all of my flowers from PTI in the challenge colors and then stamped fresh snow right over it and then smeared. It really was so easy and fun.

Hope you all get time to create today!

It's a good life!

Make it Sunday LOL!

Who am I kidding, I am glad I made it at all! I have been watching the inspiration showcase by Jennifer McGuire, WOW! If they offer it again or any other class run to sign up, it is that good people!!!!

Okay for this week I combined the Papertreyink Make it Monday challenge from last week about stamping with paint. I also did one of the resist techniques that Jennifer taught. Super fun.

I'm not going to to into all of the supplies for the card. All of the inks are ranger distress. That is one of the things I love about Jennifer, she makes getting inky and messy not only okay, but a whole lot of fun. I also like that after Izzy's 5th birthday party on Saturday I was able to go upstairs and play and make tons of backgrounds that I already have tons of ideas for how to finish.

It's a good life!

Ps, I am going to start working on an update post for later this week. To say it has been a hectic september would be an understatement in our household.
