CCMC370 Endless Thanks


I love today's color challenge from Create with Connie and Mary challenge blog! They are 3 of my favorite colors in life and on paper so my mind went in all kinds of directions when I sat down to make my card. 

I created a mostly white card with 2 raised panels.
I put a strip of paper from the Everyday Chic series down the center of my Heavyweight Whisper White base. Then I added the 2 panels with dimensionals. 
The flowers were fussy cut and then I added White Perfect Accents that I colored with a black sharpie. The tiniest flower has a black colored pearl instead of a White Accent just because of the size. Finally, to join the two panels together, I added the stamped banner. 

Stamps: Endless Thanks (photopolymer)
Paper: Everyday Chic series
Card Stock: Heavyweight Whisper White, Pool Party
Ink: Pool Party, Watermelon Wonder, Black Memento
Other: White Perfect Accents, Pearls, dimensionals, Sharpie (not Stampin' Up!)

Timeless Love Birthday

I am back today with a sketch challenge for you from the challenge blog at Create with Connie and Mary.

The sketch has lot of possibilities as you can see!

I didn't stray too far from the sketch and I am still enjoying the big Annual Catalog as you can see!
Stampin' UP! Timeless Love stamp set. Watercolored flowers in blue, wisteria and mint. Floral birthday card. Handmade card by Lisa Young, Add Ink and Stamp
I used the gorgeous Timeless Elegance designer paper for the background and added a coordinating spray of flowers from the Timeless Love stamp set.

The flowers were stamped with Black Stazon onto watercolor paper and then I used Stampin'  Write Markers and an Aquapainter to add layers of colors. I wanted a bit of sparkle in the centers of the flowers so I added a dab of Dazzling Details in each one. In case you are wondering how I fit all of the flowers and leaves into the oval - some are fussy cut. 

All supplies are Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Cottage Garden, Timeless Love
Paper: Watercolor paper; Timeless Elegance, Pretty Petals paper stack
Card Stock: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Mint Macaron
Ink: Black Stazon, Night of Navy, Mint Macaron, Wisteria Wonder
Other: Dazzling Details, Oval Framelits, Mint Macaron Lace, Corner Punch

Won't you join us at Create with Connie and Mary challenge blog? We would love to see what you create with this wonderful sketch!

Stamp Review Crew: Awesomely Artistic Edition


Welcome to another Blog Hop brought to you by the Stamp Review Crew.  We will be featuring the stamp set, Awesomely Artistic. It had me at the name :)  Everyone on the hop has made at least one project with this stamp set so there is lots of inspiration for you!

Reminder: the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop officially begins Monday, August 17th but we post early so we can work out the kinks so some links may not work. Just don't give up!

If you arrived from the blog of the talented Dawn Tidd, then you are in the right place. If you just arrived and this is your first stop, that is ok because the blog hop goes full circle - just follow the links!

In case you aren't familiar with this stamp set, this is what it looks like.
Note: It also comes in Clear Mount for $20.00

I made a clean and simple card for my project and was inspired by this gorgeous, non-Stampin' Up! card.

Stampin' Up! Awesomely Artistic stamp set with Watercolor Wash Background stamp. Watercolor type background in shades of blue and green with blue dragonfly. Clean and simple card. Dragonfly card. Handmade by Lisa Young, Add Ink and Stamp
I used the new Heavyweight Whisper White card stock for the base and stamped panel. I love how it holds up! I started off by using the Watercolor Wash background stamp and only partially inking it up before stamping. After I inked it, I spritzed it with water and stamped onto the panel. I then added some dots/speckles with one of the stamps in this set. Next I stamped the dragonfly and added some Basic Black lines to its wings and body. The fine tip of the Basic Black marker worked perfectly for this. 

The final step was to adhere the die cut sentiment. I wanted a bold contrast to the background so I used Basic Black card stock and the Greetings thinlits. 

All of the supplies are Stampin' Up! and can be found in my Online Store.

Stamps: Watercolor Wash background, Awesomely Artistic
