Crazy Birds and SSS Flickr Challenge #20

Wow, I didn't realize it had been so long since I last posted here. Yikes!  Anyway, I ordered these Crazy Birds stamps recently. They make me laugh every time I look at them.  :)  I also ordered the Artful Flowers set from Simon Says Stamp. I thought this set would be perfect for the Simon Says Stamp flickr challenge this week. It just started on Friday and the theme is all about summer, my favorite time of year! So, here are the cards I created.

In the card below, the Smile die is from the SSS June card kit. Love it!

I hope you have a great week with lots of friends and smiles.  :)  And I hope you get a chance to play in the SSS Flickr challenge too!

Happy Mother's Day

Hello! Just thought I'd pop in to share the Mother's Day cards I made this year.

This card is for my Mom. I used a Hero Arts background stamp with their new ombre inks. Love these inks! If you haven't checked them out yet, you may want to. Just sayin...  :)  I also used the Friendship Butterflies die set and the You die from Simon Says Stamp.

And this next card is for my Mother-in-law. I used the Simon Says Stamp Artful Flowers set with liquid pearls in the middle of the flowers.

Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there! Enjoy your day!

Mixed Media Challenge - May Flowers

Hello! I'm just popping in for a quick post. I've been playing around again with mixed media on canvas and using several stamped flowers so I decided to enter this into the Mixed Media Monthly challenge #12 - May Flowers

I used a lot of Tim Holtz distress inks, paints and his tissue wrap on this canvas, along with stencils, embossing paste and so much more! :) I also used stamps from Hero Arts, Lawn Fawn and Prima (Julie Nutting). I colored the flowers with Copic markers and I paper pieced the girl's dress. 

My first mixed media project was an owl canvas. If you'd like to take a peek, you can check it out here. Anyway, thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great week!
