I finally had some time to "play" with colored pencil (Stampin' Up! Watercolor Pencils) on dark cardstock. I started with a basic gray focal layer. I masked it off using blue painter's tape (TIP: be sure to apply it to clothing repeatedly to lessen its stickiness and test it before applying) to two sides. The floral bunch from Southern Serenade was applied using versamark over the painter's...

Today I completed sympathy card number two.  I chose a floral design from my stash of cut and colored pieces. This flower stamp set has a matching punch. I find it clever how the butterfly stamp uses the same four petal punch as the flowers. 

I embossed whisper white with the Layered Leaves embossing folder. I had to use the same sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings as it is the only...

I received some very sad news today. A family member who has been in poor health, passed away. I need two sympathy cards for family and they will be mailed as we are currently travelling. I wanted the cards to be masculine but elegant as well. For the first one, I chose to not use any embellishments as it is being sent to a male family member. In order to give it a bit of a stepped up look...

#66 Color Challenge Congratulations Card \ Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I am left handed, but sponged the card background with my right hand. I used this week's prescribed colors: Call Me Clover, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and White. Here is the inspiration image: ...

July 2018 Stamp 'N Hop - Favorite DSP | Tracy Marie Lewis | www.stuffnthingz.com

I am hopping with Stamp 'N Hop today. Our theme is favorite DSP. I've chosen Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Specialty Paper. It it like a super detailed die cut, but so fine that it would be very difficult to replicate successfully by using a metal die to make it. I started with Brusho crystals and an aqua painter and water colored a background. I used Prussian Blue, then added some Brilliant...

Today I am hopping along with the 2018 Kre8tors group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators. This month I have moved up north in Washington state for a few weeks after which we will head to Eastern Washington for the rest of the summer. It is so lush and green where we are that I chose to make a nature card in honor of the local greenery. This month's projects are based on the provided sketch: ...
