Snow much joy

Hello and Welcome to my New Home and Craft Area!
It been a long time since my last post, We have been very busy with New things around us. First are foremost I Thank God for the blessing of having our dream come true.
Our New Home
We are so proud we have accomplish one of the biggest step in life. First Time home buyers.
And I'm glad we can say the move is over and things are settled now! 
As well I have a New Craft area! Yipeeee!!!

Perfect space and the best thing is No more going up and down stairs like my old scrapbook/basement.Plenty of Sunlight. Everything I need is at my reach. I know I need to spice those walls a bit, but since my crafts area is on my Kitchen (Breakfast Nook Area) I need to choose carefully the perfect Accents (pictures)
...On to my project now...
I made this Snow much Joy pocket card (Pinterest Inspired)
The card measured 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 top folding card.
Although there is no snow in Florida, this card is so cute and perfect for the Holiday season which is coming up fast, easy to mass produce!I emboss the snow man and use my Copics,
YR04 Chrome Orange
100 Black
YG03 Yellow Green
B14 Light Blue

The Pocket measure 3 1/2 by 3 and you can insert a gift card, candy or some cash, I'm ok with either one. I add some silver stickles on the snow flakes to add some sparkle, I think Snowflakes with No sparkle is not a snowflake..... and instead of using glue to attach the velum pocket I dust my sewing machine I sew around it.

Thank You for your time and please leave your comments down below!
I will see you next time with more projects!

Take care everyone!

I love you

Hello Everyone!
I'm here with a very simple card, I would like to call it white on white, It does have some extra color but the simplicity of this card is absolutely fascinating. I just love it. No Die Cutting involved! Just Coloring with Copics Markers!
I have stamp the Images from Love you S'more from Lawn Fawn using Memento Ink Pad. I used Copic E23 Hazelnut for the Bear, around the edges I went darker using the same E23 Hazelnut.
I emboss the Heart using Versa-Mark & Red Embossing Powder and to give a little depth and dimension I add some glossy accent, the sentiment is also emboss as well.
I add some green shade using Tim Holtz Distress Marker Crushed Olive (Water-Color). I add some dimension to this card using Foam Tape on the back.
Thank You for spending some time with me, I hope to see you Next Time for another Card,
Have a Bless week!
Hugs

I miss you

Good Day Friends!
Today's project is a card I have made, using Love You S'more, and Coordinating Dies Love You S'more, from Lawn Fawn, both are been in the market for quiet a bit but I haven't had the time to play with it, until now.
 I start by sponging the back ground paper doing circular motion using Sky, Twilight and Indian Corn Blue Inks from CTMH to blend them all. For the Mountains I also use a sponge, tear a paper piece to created a masking using Olive(Lighter Color) and New England Ivy(Darkest Color) to add some depth.
 To created the starry background I used my emboss buddy from We R Memories, stamped the stars, also from  Love You S'more, using Versa-Mark and add White Embossing Powder. The sentiment I Miss You is from SSS Whats Up.
I have color the images using Copics
R08 Vermilion(Flame)
Y15 Candimium Yellow(Flame and Moon)
Y13 Candimium Yellow(Moon)
YR04 Chrome Orange(Flame)
E23 Hazelnut(Marshmallow)
0 Colorless Blender(Marshmallow)
I stamped the Pine Tress using New England Ivy using the Two Step Technique
(you will stamp the image up to 3 time without Re-Inking the stamp)
I guess my technique is a three way :)
I hope you have enjoy my post, I did try to keep short and simple! Thank You for spending some time with me, and I hope I will see you Next Time,
Have a fabulous week!

So happy for you + embossing paste technique

Hello and Welcome to my Blog!
I'm happy and excited to share a card + a technique using the Dreamwaever Embossing Paste.
This Technique is very simple but fun, to see the results at the end!
I have made this card using the stencil from DCWV 6 by 6 Stencil Pattern, taped on to my card, to prevent the stencil to move around. I have applied a light coat of Dreamweaver Embossing Paste over the stencil. I also have add a Clear Detail Embossing Powder over the paste and let it dry for about 30 minutes before I heat set it.
Tip:
(if you don't let air dry first the embossing paste will bubble)
I stamp the Flower Image using Let Me Grow Stamp set from CTMH using Versa-Mark and Olive Embossing Powder and colored the image using Copic Marker YG03 Yellow Green  
For the Sentiment I used Jillibean Soup Handwritting Sentiment JB0198 So happy for you on Vellum and White Embossing Powder.
I have cut the leaves using Sizztlits 3 Dies Flowers Branches and Leaves Set with my Big-Shot Die Cutting Machine. I have add more sparkle to the leaves using Wink of Stella Clear Brush Glitter over. To finish this card I add a Beige Flat Pearl to the center of the flower!
I am very pleased the way this card turn out, it does have dimension, but it not to overwhelm. I sure think this card can be mail easily but as always I do add some extra protection to it. 
I'm sorry this post is kinda long but I want to include all the supplies I have use and I have provide a link to most all in case you will want to try!
As Always Thank You for stopping by and spend sometime with me!
Have a Great Week!
Hugs
