Don't forget to be awesome!

Hi all!  Am I the only one that can't believe 2016 is just days away??!?  Crazy!  I hope you're all having a wonderful holiday season and spending it with those you love.  This is possibly my last card for this year so I thought I'd make it a little reminder for all of us as we head into the new year - don't forget to be awesome!  :D  The flowers are from the Waffle Flower set, DT Mix and the sentiment is from their In Every Way stamp set.  I inked the flowers and leaves with my Zig pens then stamped them onto watercolor paper.  Once they were all stamped, I spritzed them with water.  Well, I spritzed them a bit too much and lost most of the outlines of the stamps, so I inked them again and stamped them again where I had originally.  Pretty happy with the end result ;)  I added some clear sequins to the flower centers.  The card base is MFT's Gravel Gray.  I stamped and embossed the Garden Flourish BG stamp with silver pearl EP.  I love that embossing powder because it kind of takes on the color of whatever it's embossed over.  

Thanks for stopping by and in case I don't 'see' y'all until next year *wink*, Have a Safe and Blessed New Year!  And oh yea, don't forget to be awesome!

Some people are worth melting for

Par-tea On

Hi all! I went for shades of teal with my latest TAWS card using the new Swee-Tea stamp set.  The cup was paper pieced then fussy cut.  I used a white gel pen to color in parts of the cup and a W3 Copic for shading.  The sketch is from the SSSC299.

Thanks for stopping by!  You still have a little time left to shop the Liquidation Sale at the TAWS STORE!!!

Merry Christmas

Hi all!  Happy Friday Eve!  :D  Here's a card I made using two new TAWS sets - Point of View and Happy Everything.   One is a great background building set, the other is a great sentiment set - together they are FAB!!!  I inked the dots with distress ink, spritzed with water, then cut them out with some die-namics.  This card follows the CTS151 sketch.

Warm Wishes tag

Hi all!  Here's a cute little tag I wanted to share with you!  I used the new TAWS set, Melt Your Heart Out - it is SO super cute!!!  And I broke out the gingham and Ric Rac!  Whoa, blast from the past, huh?  I colored him with my Zig pens then used an MFT Blueprints die to cut out the tag.

Happy Birthday

Hi all!  It's almost Friday! Wahoo!  Here's a card I made using some newly released TAWS sets - Swee-Tea and Happy Everything.  Ironically, today would've been my grandmother's 93rd birthday.  She was something, I tell ya, and I sure do miss her.  Anyway, I colored up the cake and stand with Copics and followed the SSSC297 sketch.  A few YNS gumdrops add extra detail.

Thanks for stopping by!  You still have time to take advantage of the TAWS liquidation sale!  EVERYTHING IS 40% OFF!!!
