Itching For A Playdate - CAS Game #84

Hello my friends and welcome back.  The last couple of days I have been on a roll, doing some water colouring with distress inks and today is no exception.

Brighten My Day

Hello my friends, I hope you are having a good day so far.

 I had so much fun painting with distress inks that I thought I would make another card.  Again I used the Fun in the Rain stamp set from Hero Arts, this time using the cute pig wearing boots.

I'm really happy with the lower half of my card but the sky didn't turn out quite like I pictured it in my mind.  Still, I'm having lots of fun using Distress Inks for colouring rather then my go to Copic markers.



Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: Hero Arts - Fun in the Rain
Inks: Ranger - Archival Ink in Jet Black,  Distress Inks - Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Gathered Twigs, Spun Sugar,  Worn Lipstick, Squeezed Lemonade and Mowed Lawn
Other: Recollections - 110lb White card stock for the card base,  Strathmore - 140lb Cold Press Watercolor paper

Thank you for dropping by and I hope you have a wonderful day, Kathy

We'll Weather This Together

Hello again my friends.  I made another card today, this time using the brand new Fun In The Rain stamp set from Hero Arts, which has just come back in stock on their website.

This time I was planning on doing a one layer card but kind of wrecked the sentiment so I stamped, painted and cut out a couple of clouds to cover up the boo, boo and then stamped the sentiment again.

I did some watercolouring using distress inks and I used the watercolor palette from Art Impressions to hold the ink.  It worked so well, I think I'm really going to love it.

I thought this card with the sentiment was a good card to send someone if they are felling down, to let them know they're not alone.


Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: Hero Arts - Fun In The Rain
Inks: Ranger - Archival Ink in Jet Black,  Distress Inks - Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Broken China, Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick
Other: Recollections - 110lb White card stock for the card base,  Strathmore - 140lb Watercolor Cold Press Paper

Thank you for taking the time to drop by and I hope you have a wonderful day! Kathy

Dance In The Rain

Hello my friends and welcome to another week.  Slowly but surely it's getting lighter in the evening and I'm hoping that Spring is coming soon.

On Saturday I received the February 2017 My Monthly Hero kit that I ordered from Hero Arts.  Their  monthly kits are such a good deal, you should check it out.  Here is a picture of February's 2017 kit. (There are actually more dies then you can see in this picture).



Here is the first card I made using this set.  The window die in this kit would be perfect to make shaker cards.





Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Dies: Window Die from February 2017 My Monthly Hero kit
Inks: Simon Says Stamp - Intense Black,  Distress Inks - Stormy Sky & Broken China  Hero Arts - Soft Blue

Happy Birthday Pandas

Hello my friends,  on Friday I received a couple of Happy Mail packages and in one of them was the older MFT Stamps - Happy Pandas stamp set and matching dies.  I bought them from someone on Instagram that was destashing and when I got them, I not sure they were ever used.

I made a couple of cards with this new set.  For the first card I inked up the background with some distress inks and them stamped some Bamboo on the "ground".  The pandas and banner were stamped, cut out with the dies and coloured with Copic markers.  The great thing about the pandas is you don't even have to colour them at all.




Below is a list of the supplies I used.

Stamps: MFT Stamps - Happy Pandas
Dies: MFT Stamps - Happy Pandas
Inks: MFT Stamps - Black Licorice Hybrid Ink,  Versafine - Onyx Black,  Distress Inks - Tumbled Glass and Bundled Sage,  Memento - Bamboo Leaves
Copic Markers:  R20, R24, R27, R39
Other: Recollections - 110lb White card stock,  Foam Tape

Thanks so much for dropping by and I hope you come back to see the next card.  Kathy

Let's Paw-ty!

Hello again my friends, I am back with another card using the super cute More Furry Friends stamp set from Avery Elle.

For this card I coloured all three of the dogs in the set.  I think my favorite dog is the one on the right, which I believe is a Shar Pei.  His face, with the tongue hanging out, is just so adorable!

I cut out the white frame using the Blueprints 27 from MFT Stamps and tucked a dog into each little square and then mounted the whole thing on the bottom blue layer with foam tape.  Simple but very cute!




Below is a list of the supplies I used for this card.

Stamps: Avery Elle - More Furry Friends
Dies: MFT Stamps - Blueprints 27
Inks: Simon Says Stamp - Intense Black,  Versafine - Onyx Black
Copic Markers:  Poodle - C00, C1, C3, C9, R20  Schnauzer - W1, W3, W5, W7, R20  Shar Pei - E31, E35, R20
Other: Recollections - 110lb White card stock and 65lb Blue card stock,  Spectrum Noir - 110lb Ultra Smooth Premium White card stock,  Foam Tape
