Cheer All Year with WWYS

Hi Everyone,
Another week of fun with WWYS!

If you don't know this is a talented group of stampers that my downline Amanda assembled to create "What Will You Stamp" Her vision was to see lots of ideas for one stamp set in one place. She's a Rock Star!! Great idea right?

This week we will be playing with 

...and here is my simple little card

My card base is Shimmery that Card Stock!! Super weight with just enough sparkle to get your attention.  My mat is Red Foil and my mat is Watercolor Paper that has been spritzed with Pool Party re-inker mixed with Alcohol. 
Tip: did you know if you use alcohol it will dry almost immediately? Yep!
My Tree is stamped in Mossy Meadow and embellished with Rhinestones that I colored with a red Sharpie. It's so much prettier in person and so simple. 
I did stamp a few snow flakes from the Happy Scenes Set to add a bit more texture. 
Who says Christmas has to be difficult? Not me.
Please let me know if I can help you with any of your Stamping Needs....that's why I'm here!

Please make sure to visit the other fabulous designers on the team at What Will You Stamp Blog

Here are the supplies used to create this card.

Thanks for stopping in. See you next time! :)

Vintage Leaves for Totally Techniques

totally techniques banner
Hi Everyone,
I am beyond excited to have been asked to join the Totally Techniques Design Team. It’s going to be so much fun exploring different techniques every month. Hope you join us in the tour to see what these amazing artists have come up with!
First Technique is “Embossed Watercolor”
totally techniques card 2
With this technique we were to emboss the background as well as the image….and of course add a bit of water coloring.
My card actually features the Vintage Leaves set but I did use a few others….like Gorgeous Grunge for the Background and Sparkly Season for the Sentiment.
The leaf was colored using my ink pads and an Aqua Painter. I used Garden Green, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze. Such beautiful fall colors.
The background I embossed in gold (as I did the leaf ) and  used the Gorgeous Grunge to create it. I then did a light water color color wash with Pumpkin Pie so the image didn’t get lost.

Notice the doily? They are gold but so shiny and not exactly right. So….I laid it on my Versamark Pad and then dipped it into my gold Embossing Powder. Now it matches perfectly with the other embossing on the card. I hope you like it.
Please join my friend Shelagh from Canada next. Tell her I said Hello!

wwys cropped
Here is my design
lighthearted leaves
Dimensions for my card are:
  • Shimmery White Card Stock 5 1/2 x 8 1/2
  • Gold Glitter Paper is 4 x 5 1/4
  • Image Mat is 3 3/4 x 5
How to:
  • Stamp the long leaf three times in Black Stazon
  • Color using an Aqua Painter with Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry and blend.
  • stamp the So Grateful For You on a scrap and flag one end. Attach with t a glue dot and add the bow with a glue dot.
  • Attach the image piece to the gold glitter paper with glue dots….it won’t stick with regular adhesive and attach to the card base.
  • I punched little circles with a hand held punch out of the gold glitter paper and attached to the dots near the leaves with Tombo Multi. You could use Rhinestones as it may be easier…lol
