What's moo?

Hi all!  Here's a clean and simple card I made using the new TAWS Penguins on Parade set.  There are so many options with this set (and the two new coordinating sets!) - I love it!  I decide to make my penguin a cow and added once of the sentiments from set.  I colored him with Copics then fussy cut him.  I layered him over the Reverse Confetti woodgrain confetti cuts to add to the 'rustic' feel of the card.  The sketch is from the SSSC280.

May all your birthday wishes come true

Hi all!  Here's a card I made for the MTWSC239 sketch challenge and also for Lydia's Dare to Get Dirty challenge.  If you don't know what I'm talking about, head over to SplitCoastStampers and check it out!  I sponged two distress inks - peacock feathers and ripe persimmon - onto smooth white card stock.  I then took the MFT Garden Flourish background stamp and spritzed it with water.  I then took the sponged card stock and layer it on top of the dampened background stamp and pressed down all over the card stock so it would soak up as much water as possible.  The layer you see is the finished (dried!) result!  Love the subtle flourish images that came through!  I then stamped the white circle layer with the same image using Blu Raspberry ink that I had stamped off once.  The sentiment is from the BB Birthday Bears set, as well as the little present that I colored with Copics then fussy cut. I love that MFT's Tropical Teal card stock coordinated so well with the peacock feathers distress ink AND that their persimmon card stock matched the ripe persimmon distress ink!  I also had some enamel dots that matched as well - score!

TAWS Sneak Peek - Have a Super day!

Hi all!  I'm SO excited to show you my sneak peek card today featuring the TAWS set called Happy Hero!  There are several images and sentiments so you can create your OWN super hero!!!  WHAT?!?  I know, right?!! We looove all of the Marvel characters in my house and who doesn't love Captain America??  I decided to make my penguin Captain America, even added some glossy accents to his shield.  Everything was colored with Copics, then fussy cut.  I added the star background with an MFT stencil and some modeling paste, then sprinkled silver glitter over them before they dried.  I love that the sentiment covers a few different occasions.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be SURE to swing by the TAWS Blog and leave a comment for your chance to WIN!!!!

You splatter to me

Hi all!  Here's a card I made using the Oh Splat stamp set by TAWS.  I dampened a piece of watercolor paper, then inked my 'ink splat' images using distress inks then stamped them onto the damp paper.  Because the paper was damp, it made the ink spread.  Once I was happy with the look, I heat set it, then added my sentiment and clear sequins from Butterfly Reflections Ink.  The sketch is from the CAS133 challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!  AND you'll want to head over to the TAWS Blog because our Sneak Peeks started TODAY!!!  You still have time to enter win!

Bestest Wishes

Hi all!  Here's a card I made using new MFT goodies and their current sketch, MFTWSC238.    The sentiment is from the Birthday Wishes & Balloons stamp set which I embossed with white EP.  I also used the matching dies for my watercolored balloons.  I received my Blueprint Sketch Ranger ink pad today {thanks for the FAST shipping, Vanessa!!!} so I had to try it out, it's such a beautiful blue!
