You Are Sweet

Hello there!

Just stopping by to share the newest ColourQ inspiration pic...

I inked up a My Favorite Things square die with WPlus 9's sweet nectar. Than I stamped the sentiment, from MFT So Much Love using black ink from Memento. 

The crochet flower was made by my mom! I added a button, some white cord, rustic twine and two punched leaves. For a finishing touch I scattered some sequins and enamel dots.

I followed the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch...

Mother's Day

Hello there!
TGIF!!!!

I'm just stopping by to share a Mother's Day card I created...

I used two stamp sets from WPlus9, Strictly Sentiments 4 and Spring Blooms. I used Color Box inks in sky blue and moss green, and Memento inks in lilac posies and nautical blue. I added a watercolor wash to the background with distress ink in faded jeans.


I stamped the sentiment with Memento black ink and scattered some sequins to the background. I added some tiny gems to the center of the berries.
I die cut the main panel with a scallop stitched die from Mama Elephant and adhered it to some pretty gingham paper from My Favorite Things.

I used some inspiration from Curtain Call

and Addicted to Stamps

Thanks for taking a peek!
