Teddy Bear Tags - Shakers

Hello.  Jennifer Snyder here sharing a large shaker tag made for my granddaughter to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.  She's 9 months old and this is her first St. Patrick's Day - which happens to be a big deal in my household because my husband is in a band that features Irish music for the local pubs in New York, where we live.  

This is my interpretation of "baby Irish" - using Maja Design's classic Fika collection, still my favorite collection for it's rich chocolate browns, , creams, greens and purples.  Just thinking about it makes me feel like a chocolaty treat.  

Here are the images and papers I used from the collection: Chokadmuffins, Favoriter, Apple, K√§rleksmums

Now then, don't those beautiful paper images don't make you hungry? Yum.

Here is a close up of the beautiful papers and the chipboard teddy bear shaker from Creative Embellishments.  It's filled with shaker mix from Buttons Galore, to help make the shaker "come to life".  The shaker mix adds that "bit'o lucky charm", as my husband would say.   


Thanks for stopping here.

Watercolor Spring Cards - Spellbinders Floral Beauties


Spring is Here!  I am celebrating with some quick cards created using new collection of  floral stamps from Spellbinders and designed by Sushma Hedge.  

The Watercolor Florals collection by Sushma has endless possibilities and color options. 
The is the set featured today:   

Floral Beauties Clear Stamp Set from Watercolor Florals by Sushma Hegde

The images were stamped onto watercolor paper then colored using Spellbinders / Fun Stampers Journey Color Splash Watercolor Pencils.  If you want to treat yourself to some AMAZING watercolor pencils, these are fabulous to consider.  

I am not an artist by any stretch of the imagination.  I am fairly new to coloring but I'll tell ya, I am having FUN with this pencil set.  The pigmentation is rich and robust with smooth blending results. 

The ink used for watercolor stamps is equally important too.  The ink cannot run and bleed when wet.  I also prefer a crisp image.    
My favorite  stamping ink for watercolor use is Fun Stampers Journey  - Black Licorice True Color Fusion Ink Pad.
