sheepishly sweet March 19 GUI

Here is my clean and simple card using the set " Sheepishly Sweet" but Phyllis Harris.
I used Stampin Up Daisy designer series paper with a coral mat. He is colored with both markers and colored pencils. This is a great card to wait until you need to send it before putting a sentiment inside.   on the back I had to use my custom stamp.

I like to color the center so it coordinates with the front and stands out a little more.  Phyllis Harris is one of my favorite stamp designers and I have quite a collection. They are images that just pull a smile and a happy thought.  I have used these stamps on all kinds of cards, tiles, wall art and candles.
I hope you comment below so I can put your name in a drawing to win a free bag of stamps from Unity. What an awesome prize this is!  Stop back all week for more fun.

Another wonderful class at the Camillus Senior Center. I love the fellowship these ladies have. Everyone helps each other and we all laugh and have fun. The first birdy is from Unity Stamp company designed by Angie Blom. This bird looks amazing in every color!
Our second card is the June paper pumpkin kit from Stampin Up!
It is a fun tropical pattern with a watermelon stamp inside.
This card is fun sized and smaller than an A2 (4.25 by 5.5inches)

Art Journal Phyllis Harris - GUI Friday

For my final day, I would like to show my love of Phyllis Harris and offer another use for stamping. My Art Journal is nothing more than an inexpensive blank book.  When I get a new stamp I ink it in my book to travel with me and color when I'm waiting on my boys. I like colored pencils best.
This is appropriate with Father's Day on Sunday. I also have a few more favorites. My collection of Phyllis Harris stamp kits is over a 100, they have their own storage container. The happy family
pictures and animals just warm my heart.

Brandy and Emma are amazing sets. I have a Black Lab and just love these stamps.
They are just happy puppy love.

I love these too!
Thank you all for visiting my blog.
I will continue to post my stamp classes
If you live in the Central New York area I would love to have you
Attend one of my make and take classes.
Leave a comment so I can enter you in the drawing for free Unity stamps.
Happy Stamping!,

Father's Day cards GUI Thursday

Happy Thursday
Here is a fun fish card I made for Father's Day. It is clean and simple, but I added wink of Stella to the fish to make it shimmer like real scales on a fish would. I used colored pencils and twine to finish.

At the senior center where I work myself and a few residents put a few more together for the few male residents. I hope they smile as each one is personalized with a special interest. I love sharing stamping and coloring techniques with others.

Happy Flag day GUI Wednesday

Happy flag day!
This fun card is an itty bitty from Unity stamp company. I 
Inked it with two colors by hand and decided it is time to
Buy a Misti tool. The stars are aluminum foil cut with a star
Punch. The sentiment is another itty bitty stamp.

A huge thank you to all who currently serve or are veterans. 
I appreciate and value the freedom I enjoy because of your service.
I did a second card with another set called Ragged Ol Flag with some friends
At the senior center.
This set is huge and has many stamps. The sentiment is another itty bitty.
These are great summer stamps.

Your own Rainbow GUI Tuesday

Growing up in the 80's rainbows were just a fashion fad. We all had shirts with them. They are just happy to me, the smile after the storm. Today I used the kit "Your own Rainbow" and "imperfect" both by Angie Blom. The back stamp "imperfect" is in the past stamp of the week section.
I stamped the image on water color paper and clear embossed 
I used gelato colors to paint with
I free hand painted the colors on the card base. The embellishments are 
a thin gold washi tape and a red enamel heart.

I always make more than one image because I like to try different color combinations.
Gelatos are pigment color that can be used straight as paint or combined with
Other products like embossing paste, gesso, etc.
I put them on a clear acrylic block with a little water to use straight.
The perfectly imperfect stamp I used on the back is fun and let's others know 
you put some love into making the card.
