I first heat embossed the stamp with WOW embossing powder then I used my alcohol markers to color the stamp. I added some fun details such as clear glitter to the sheep and Noah's beard plus flocking to the waves. I brought everything together by layering my card front and adding a little yellow and white twine bow.

I tried a new technique (for me) on my card. I’ve been wanting to use embossing paste for a while now and thought this was as good as time as any. I used a stencil called Garden Whimsy Branch by Memory Box. And the embossing paste is by Studio 490.
Details: All papers used are from my stash. I used water color paper for my embossed background. Once the embossing paste dried I colored the leaves using Distress Ink Pad in Mowed Lawn (my favorite green color). In between the card base and the embossing layer is a layer of green card stock that matched the mowed lawn. I wrapped a vellum band around the card and placed a label created on my Silhouette using the Print and Cut feature. Inside I stenciled a smaller branch in mowed lawn and used the silhouette to cut out the sentiment “Hello”.
I thought it would be hard using embossing paste but it only took me two tries to get the look I wanted. I plan to use this technique more often.
Pull out your stencils and embossing paste and have some fun with it. So what if you don’t get it the first time. You know it takes practice to do a new technique. Once you get the look you are after then the rest is easy. And I would love if you share your embossing paste technique with the Cutters Creek Online Group.

Today I have a fun summer card for you! The image is an SVG file that I cut with my Silhouette. I cut him about 5" wide. My card base is white card stock folded to make a 5" X 6" card base. I added a black mat cut at 4 3/4" X 5 3/4". My patterned paper is from my stash. The blue is cut at 4 1/2" X 5 1/2". The reverse side of the blue wave paper is the brown patterned paper. I took a strip of the brown pattern paper and tore it and then cut it to 4 3/4". I then inked the paper with some Tea Dye Distress Ink.
For his glass, I added a coat of Glossy Accents to it. I then added some Stampendous Mica Pearlized fragments so his drink had some ice cubes in it. I also sprinkled some Distress Glitter in Rock Candy on the wet Glossy Accents. Once it dried I added a second coat to add some additional dimension to the glass. To add the look of sea spray I added some of the Stampendous Frantage Embossing Powder in Shabby Blue.
I stamped my sentiment in some Memento Tuxedo Black ink. To finish my card I added some rhinestones and a small shell from my stash.
To attach my surfer penguin I used an Action Wobble so he could "surf".
Thanks for visiting us today. I would love it if you could leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

My new passion is water coloring. I was so surprised how easy it is to water color. And the best part it doesn’t have to be perfect! My card today is water coloring stamped images.
My card design was inspired by this You Tube Video.
The card is 5-1/4” square. I used water color paper that is 140 lb. weight and cold pressed. Paint medium used is Distress Ink by Ranger. The stamp used is called Favorite Flowers. I placed tiny sequins and rhinestones on the front of the card for a little bling. And I used glossy accents to hold the sequins in place. What I love about water coloring is all the imperfections that happen once it dries and yet it has such a neat look. You should try water coloring you would love how easy it is. If you have Distressed Inks in your stash then all you need is some water, water color brush, and water color paper. Using Distress Inks makes water coloring FUN!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope that I inspired you to try the water coloring technique.
