They are so so cute!  

So, whatcha doing this summer?  Something fun, I hope...  

Maybe up for a challenge on a hot summer day and not in the mood to be out...

Awww... sweetest couple ever!

Hello Hello and happy Monday!
I'm sharing two super sweet cards with you today using the Hobby Lobby Love Birds set.
I absolutely adore this set and it's just so sweet and I just look at their lovebirds and say Awww...  

For the first card.  Check out this adorable couple enjoying the moment at sunset.

To create the sunset background, I used Faber Castell gelato, just randomly scribble horizontally.  Then I used a baby wipe to blend.  Once dried, I used a 'cloud' stencil & white acyclic paint to add on some clouds. 

I colored the sweet couple with Copic markers.  And I also distress the edges with antique linen distress ink pad.

Here is another card using another adorable couple from the same set.

Gelatos colors used:  colors used: metallic grape, red cherry, orange, margarita mix, brown, licorice

A great day and more Creative Chemistry 102 fun!

Hello hello and happy Wednesday!

What a super fun day today!  My crafty friend and I went for an exciting drive, or thou... it took us over an hour and a half, fighting thru traffic...  but it was totally worth it!  Yes, yes, we found a scrapbooking store called Kept Creations... so exciting!!!  (We have been so sad since all last local scrapbooking store closed.  We only have been shopping online, but it's just not the same.)  

And of course, we brought goodies!!!  I can't wait!  :)

Before I go, I just want to share a tag using the fun techniques that I learned from 
Creative Chemistry 102 class from Online Card Classes.

Well, I'll chat with you lately, I'm off to play with my new goodies!

P.S.  Yes, I got my hands on at the new mini Cats & Dogs set!

Hello hello and happy Monday!

Today I'm sharing a super fun card using the Elephant Stacker.  I absolutely adore these elephants, they are all so so cute!  Tons of fun and all pile up, cuteness overload!

I colored these adorable elephants with Copic markers.  And for the background, I once again used the Marvy LePlume II markers in Violet and Brilliant yellow.  Instead of the spritzing water on the watercolor palette.  I decided to use some perfect pearl mist.  Unfortunately, it doesn't show well on the photo.  But it does look really cool with a little bit of shimmer. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you have TONS OF FUN today!
