I love all these pretty planners that everyone has and decided I want to start decorating mine! Soooo here is my spread for this week. I filled in some of the info but not all of it!

I coloured up the Sweet as Can Bee set in similar colours to layout and added them on. They are a perfect fit on an insanely busy week!

Bouquet of Thanks

Hey all! I am still playing along with the 30 coloring challenge. I had a super busy day, and almost forgot to put this one up!

I used the Bouquet of Thanks stamp from Simon Says again. For a completely different look then the first time I used it! You can find all links at the bottom of this post.

I stamped and embossed the image, then got to playing with watercolours. Love of water and just dropping the pigment in and letting it do its magic! It was a super fun and simple card to put together!

Mermazing

Hey everyone! Back again with another card to share today. It is the 18th day of the coloring challenge, and I have completed a card everyday so far this month! It has been super fun and challenging to make time to do this everyday! But I am loving it, and I can not wait to share a video at the end of this month showing all my creations this month!

Today I pulled out the Mermazing set from My Favorite Things. Links to all products and colours used will be linked at the bottom this blog post!

I coloured up the images with my copic markers, then did a little bit of ink blending in the background, stamping some of the solid fish from the Mermazing set with the same ink I blended into the background. A few splashes of water and some tiny white circles made with a pastel pencil finished off this card! I love it so much!!

Chin Up Buttercup

There are lots of things that I don’t post here, that are posted over on My Instagram. If you aren’t following me there, you should!

But today, I am sharing a just because card here, on my blog. Which, I should do more often. I am going to try and get better at that. Enough with the rambling, on with card!!!

I pulled out the Chin Up Buttercup stamp from Honey Bee (all links are at the bottom of this blog post). That I have had in my stash for along time now and have not use.

Honey Bee Stamps - Chin Up Buttercup - Jessie Banks

I stamped and masked out to create a cluster of buttercups. Then Distress Oxides blended together to create the background. My favorite part is always pulling the masks off and seeing the white images that I am going to bring to life.

I coloured them bright yellow and love how this card came out in the end! I always have fun when I get to make floral cards!
