Hello there my friends!  Marie here and I would love to share the latest stamp set I have been coloring.

It's called Unforgettable  by W Plus 9

I will share how I stamped one balloon for this fantastic stamp set, masked the image and
stamped again a couple of times to crate a fun focal image.
Just imagine how you can create a whole new look by doing this technique and really stretching your stamps!
I then will show how I colored the balloons to appear transparent.
This technique can be used for any transparent object -
clothing, wings, glass, balloons - the sky is the limit!

Pamper Yourself


Hello and happy Thursday.   

I wanted to share one of the cards I created with Sherri Baldy's latest release.   
I love this little image.   



I colored her with Copic Markers and used a colorless blender and 
then I used a 
sea sponge to texturize.
I really like this technique for adding texture.  


I hope you like this -  
 Have a fantastic week -

Heartfelt Creations - Sparkling Poinsettia Candle

072715aPT (1)

Hello!   Happy Monday!   

Well - today is the end of my term at Paper Temptress!
I have totally loved my term and so grateful for everyone's support.    

And that brings me to the card I would love to share  with you today.    
I used a stamp called Sparkling Poinsettia Candle from Heartfelt Creations and some fabulous paper from Paper Temptress!

072715bPT

I colored the focal image on X-Press It.  This is my go to for all Copics and has been for about 6 months now.   I am totally addicted to the wonderful smooth texture and it makes blending so easy!
The image was matted on JellyBean Green 65# cardstock.   I use all my scraps to create leaves for my hand crafted flowers.  The 65# weight is perfect for molding flowers.
I used the negative space of my designer paper for a frame.  I reserved the actual mat I cut from this and will use it for matting a future card.
I used my all time favorite card base - Heavenly White 120#.
This cardstock is the perfect white for card bases and will allow a firm structure to hold multiple layers or
heavily embellished cards.
