John & Debbie’s Wedding Bliss…

Yesterday my good friends, John & Debbie got married! The day was perfect. It wasn’t too hot, there was a nice breeze and NO RAIN-a rarity around here. Their ceremony  was beautifully written by each other and John played the guitar and sang to Debbie. Like wise for their first dance John & Debbie danced to a recorded song Debbie sang. It was quite lovely and I was honored to be a witness to their marriage. Below is the card I made for them using Baja Breeze, Whisper White and Soft Suede Card Stock.


The flowers are from the Echoes of Kindness and the greeting is from the Together Forever Stamp Sets. I colored in the flowers using my Aqua Painter and Baja Breeze Ink Pad. I know this color just retired but I love it. I used the Large and Wide Ovel Punches, two brads and a strip of  Soft Suede Polka Dot Ribbon to finish it off.


Thanks for stoppin’ by!





Echoes of Kindness Water-Colored Flower Pot…

Echoes of Kindness W

I  bought these flower pots about a year ago from The Christmas Tree shop not knowing what I would do with them.. I just got around to using them in a water coloring class. I first made a paper template from copy paper by tracing one side of the flower pot. I then glued the traced image to cardboard, cut it out and used it as a template.

Stamp Set:
 Echoes of Kindness
 Basic Black Craft 
Colors of choice for water coloring
 DSP of choice
Big Shot, Scallop Oval Nestabilities, Ribbon, Aqua Painter, Sticky Stripe Tape, Flower Pot, Copy Paper and Card Board 

Here’s what to do:
  1. Trace flower pot onto copy paper.
  2. Glue copy paper onto cardboard. I used the cardboard which comes in the DSP package.
  3. Cut out the image.
  4. Trace image on DSP of choice. You’ll need 4, one for each side of the flower pot.
  5. Adhere DSP cut out to the pot. I used Stampin’ Up’s STICKY STRIPE TAPE.
  6. Using WHISPER WHITE card stock and “THE BIG SHOT” cut a SCALLOP OVAL.
  7. Stamp flower image from ECHOES OF KINDNESS using BASIC BLACK CRAFT INK PAD.
  8. Water color the image by pressing the closed lid of a CLASSIC INK PAD against the pad. This will create a small pool of color in the lid. Open the lid.
  9. Use an AQUA PAINTER, WATER COLOR BRUSH or BLENDER PEN and lift the ink from the lid.
  10. Apply the ink to the stamped image. I applied the ink directly to the flower centers and bottoms, wiped my AQUA PAINTER on a paper towel, then pulled the color from the center/bottom  of each flower petal to the petal’s edge.
  11. Adhere rick rack ribbon (bought at the dollar store), or ribbon of choice onto top and bottom.
