Happy Day

 This card was so hard to you can see.
For QFDT203-Queen for the Day, Mix26-Use a stencil and two or more mediums, F4A208-A sunny card, happy sentiment, or a card make someone happy--- Splitcoaststampers
The new QFTD is Kathy LeDonne and this is her card I cased.
To make the bottom of my card, I used a Spellbinders Shapeabilities fancy lattice die as a stencil and rubbed on Liquitex modeling paste that  I had mixed it in a bowl with Heidi Swapp seafoam color shine spray.
It was a bit hard after it dried so I did some sanding to soften it. I also covered the flowers with modeling paste and used Heidi Swapp coral spray on them. It did make them stiffer. The centers of the flowers are My Mind's Eye enamel dots. The sentiment panel is also spotted with the coral spray.
I'm using a Cheery Lynn Design Fanciful Flourish.
Paper is PTI white cardstock, Stampin'Up! Crumb Cake and Sage Shadow. The dp is Prima Botanical Collection paper pad.
My sentiment is Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps/Welcome Poppies set
Have a fab weekend. I know many of you have more snow than you know what to do with. The photos I've seen are beautiful.
Happy Valentine's Day!!!
I'll enter the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-Get Krafty-my flourish is Crumb Cake which is just about the same as Kraft cardstock

Splat, Splat

I made this card for the  2014 CAS Design Team Search-week #2-on Splitcoaststampers. This time it was a color challenge. My card was easy and fun using a Tim Holtz splattered layering stencil. I sponged it with VersaMagic chalk ink in Sage.

My star was cut with a Momenta Cut & Emboss star die . I'm using a scrap cardstock in lavender.
The cardstock for the base is Stampin'Up! Chocolate Chip and I'm using PTI white cardstock for stamping and sponging my image.

I stamped some dots with a Stamps by Judith peg. The sentiment is Big Wishes II from Inspired by Stamping.

We had a pretty snow yesterday. It wasn't much but covered everything. It melted during the day as the temps rose. More snow is predicted for today, one to three inches. I'm excited because we'll get to see it come down. It seems it usually snows more in the night here in my part of the southern U.S. Unfortunately, I think we'll have ice, also.

Flower Power

I'm doing the CAS259 challenge on Splitcoaststampers today. The challenge is stair step.
After stamping the flower, I  hand cut a stem from cardstock and stamped dots for leaves. My colors for the card are black, PTI white,  and Stampin'Up! Bermuda Bay. I added an enamel dot from My Mind's Eye.

The stamps are Art Warehouse/Phresh & Sassy, JustRite/Just the Right Words, and Stamps by Judith/dots. My sentiments are from a sweet friend, a large sheet of them. Thanks, EL.
