Make it Monday #173

Is it really the 173rd MIM??? That's just crazy.

I was super excited when I saw this weeks challenge- couldn't WAIT to try it out. However, I did not have many PTI sets that were outline images. But then i thought, the same technique would work for solid imges. I'd just stamp off once before laying down the original image, and then go over it with water colours. And so, my card is really a mash up between this card by Maile Belles and this card by Jennifer McGuire. How can it go wrong?!

This card makes me happy happy happy! I love watercolour and I love rainbows, and I love love LOVE the wet paint stamp sets from PTI… And I love that I splashed some paint onto the panel by accident, and it was a no-stress event. 'Cause all I did was go and splash some more paint on so the first two splashes weren't so lonely!

Here's a better look at all those pools of watercolour-y goodness :)

Hope you likey :)

Virginia's View - Die Cutting Challenge

A really quick post everyone! This is just a quick entry into the lovely Virginia's View Challenge on die cutting. I have had a very busy month, and have had many ideas in my head as to what to for with this challenge, and with the limited crafty time I have had, I wanted to try out this technique that I saw…ooooh I can't remember for the life of me where!!! But here is my card- and if I find the link to where I got the inspiration from, i will post it later.

It's a simple card- maybe a little too simple…But I thought I may let the technique just shine through. I first stamped the sentiment the main cardbase (which was lightly inked in blue). Then, I stamped The same sentiment on a piece of patterned paper, which I die cut with the SSS big you die. I also cut the 'you' out of some bermuda bay cardstock and stacked the die cuts up on each other for added dimension. Then I adhered it all together, making sure I lined up the sentiment on both the card and the die cut.

There it is! I hope you likey!
