Water Coloring New Beginnings....

You may have noticed I've not been posting much.  I've taken a new direction in my card making and found out that I have more artistic ability than I ever thought?

Water-coloring has always been a passion of mine when I see it it done by particular artists and paintings that I run across, I always stop to admire their work.  I don't remember why I even tried to think that maybe I could get into it with any success?

One day I bought a paint brush kit that had tubes of watercolor and a few brushes in a case to store it.  I came home started playing with the colors and of course on Pinterest began to try to copy pictures that I thought I could possibly paint.  You may find some look a likes of these on Pinterest and notice mine are similar, but a tad bit different.  Go to "Stamping A Little Sunshine" on Pinterest and click on Water Coloring Cards.  You will see where my inspiration came from there.

Here are a few water color card fronts that I've painted and copied from ideas on Pinterest.  I always said "I couldn't draw a stick figure to save my soul".




These two scene coloring's are favorites of mine. 

I will be posting other ones I've done.... so stay tuned if you enjoy water coloring as I do!

How wrong, I was, all these years and didn't know that I had any artistic ability inside myself for  almost 60+  years?  Sometimes we just have to branch out from (our comfort zone) and try something we never thought was possible of your self.

One Night, One Birth, One Life....2017

Christmas is almost everyone's favorite time of the year?  Mine included. I love all the twinkle and glitz as well as the whole reason for the season.  "Jesus".
With this years card  I set out to try and capture the outdoors feel to the season.  As I originally said I make a about 40 cards and start preparing in the early summer months.  Working on each one a little at a time as to not be overwhelmed at the last minute.  Each year I tell myself this is the last.  Or try cutting down on the number sent.  However, I always seem to purge forward the next year.  Not sure about next year, at the momet?  
The inside of the card reads as it shows. 
This year I had a hard time trying to make the photographs clear for you.  There is not a great "free" internet program out there to really enhance and capture the true look in real time.   Very disappointing!  Sorry..... !  In close up, they twinkle beautifully.  Glitter glue is added to the light green trees and I used glitter paper for the deer and pine cone leaf. 

May your Christmas season be filled with the love of family, friends and blessings in 2018.

Birthday Time Again...

Thought this clock die cut would make a cute birthday card for my friend Sandy's Birthday this year.  The clock seems to co-inside with a birthday being the same TIME each year.
I love this paper as it's  made with my favorite flowers that happen to be blue Hydrangea's surrounding the card.  I also was able to apply Hydrangea denominational's to the corners from K & Company.  No stamping this time on the card.  Just applying beautiful demention to the card with two different dye cuts.  I love blue and think it really turned out pretty?  I know Sandy loved it and does save each card I make and send her.

Vellum and Softness...

Time for another pretty card to show to you again.  I stamped the pretty flowers and attached vellum on top of it after embossing the outer edge.
My intention here is to see it more blown up because the vellum really hides a lot of the color..
I sent it off to a friend for her birthday while being in a hurry and not taking real good pictures to post here.  I'm sorry its kind of hard to see.  Anyways....hope you have a wonderful week?  Thanks for dropping by!

Christmas Project Peek....

Christmas is just around the corner.  Before we know it will be December and those who still send Christmas Cards out will be scurrying to get them in the mail to those near and dear.

As for me... you know that I make my own cards each year and send out approximately 40 cards to friends and family out of town.

So....here is a few surprise shots of my upcoming card to share with you this year.  I began a little over a month ago and try to do them in small doses so I don't become overwhelmed.


Cutting and embossing begins.



Each card drying after stamping on my table and small end table in living room. 


Stay tuned for more with a view of the finished product.  A little closer to Christmas time of course I will post it and also another post of my projects that I give to my special church friends for a small homemade gift from me each year.
