Here is my favorite favorite favorite new stamp set (Yummy In My Tummy #143623) in the Occasions Catalog.  (at least for now until my new stamps get here this week...!!)




Eek!  aint he cute!
and can we talk about how AMAZING our new Watercolor Pencils are ?!?!  I love coloring.  And I love the different textures you can get by using a colored pencil (looks like Fur right?!!) and then you add a little bit of water to them with an aqua painter and you get a fun watercolor look too!


To get the "furry" look I went in after watercoloring, before the paper dried and added a little more color with the pencil.  It melts right into the damp paper ... heaven!

And because we LOVE this little guy so much, I just had to show you another one :)


EEEK!!!  Right?!?!  Love LOVE LOVE LOVE Love this little guy and his alien friends!

  For this one, instead of the watercolor pencils I watercolored the old fashioned way, Just added a dot of ink (from my reinker) onto my sil-mat and added some water from my aqua painter.  I prefer this instead of using the inkpad lid.  I can add more water and create different shades of the ink color by pulling ink into a puddle and adding more water.  If you don't have a sil-mat, you can use wax paper! :) 

I masked off the aliens.  They were my favorite to color.  They remind me of Slimer from Ghostbusters.    For the balloons, I used our Balloon Punch.

Thanks for joining us today!! I hope you keep going, Jen is next and she has some really amazing stuff to check out!!

Birthday Blog Hop with SSInkspirations


Eek!! I am so excited to be back at work creating for SSInkspiration again. As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! 

You should have just left stop number 10 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Darla ~ Stampin' With Darla.

Boy do we have a great blog hop for you today. Birthday Birthday Birthdays!

I am so excited I don't even know where to start!!


This Card...oh how I LOVED making this!!

These are new products from the Occasions Catalog and the Sale-a-Bration catalog.
I'm in LOVE with everything! 

As y'all know, I love all things wonky.  So this was fun to create even though it's pretty simple!


White accents colored with a Sharpie make all things matchy matchy.
White Perfect Accents, glimmer paper, and a stapler could anchor this fun sentiment!


Ha!  Let's Taco 'Bout how AWESOME this stamp set is!!!!!
I love Taco Tuesday, Stampin' UP! and T-shirts....so EVERYTHING about this card!!!

Coloring and water coloring are all the rage these days.  Call me a purest, but I still use my stamp pads and Aqua Painters to water color.  You just give your stamp pad a good squish, (while it's closed!) and when you open it up there's a splotch of ink on the lid.  Dip your Aqua Painter in the ink and use it like a paint brush!  For subtle color or larger surfaces, I squeeze some extra water out of the AP and let it pool in the lid with the ink.
You could just as easily get a re-inker, add a drop into a palette with a drop or two of water and then use the Aqua Painter to color your image.  either way is easy peasy!!


Thanks for stopping by!
