Welcome to my corner of the Internet!

Still going on with my card kits for the month of July and here I have my creations with the Simon Says Stamps “A Colorful Life” February 2018 kit.  The kit is sold out but I have some links at the end of this post where you can still, as of today, purchase many of the supplies included in the kit.

All right so let get this show on the road with Card 1. I got the inspiration from Pinterest and selected some inks from my supplies that closely matched the watercolor samples in the kit and then stamped the paint tubes on watercolor paper.  These watercolors where rich in color and easy to apply with the brush pen.

Card 2: I love paper and used one of the cutest patter paper included to make this simple card.  The sentiment is from the stamp set and I just white heat embossed it to black card stock.

Card 3: This blue card stock was perfect for this pattern paper and I just used a speech bubble die for a fun look.

Card 4:  Here we are with another watercolor card!  For this one I colored the background with the Daniel Smith’s watercolors (samples) and stamped the artsy images in black as well as the sentiment.

Card 5: This one was my favorite pattern paper in the pack by Echo Park.  A beautiful brown tone with all the cute flowers is a focal point on its own.

Card 6: I can’t praise the papers on this kit enough.  I absolutely love them and the colors and patterns were fantastic.  I did not want to take away from the paper so I just white heat embossed the sentiment “thanks” from the stamp set.

Card 7: For this card I use a little bit of everything.  The textured piece was created using the embossing folders by Tim Holtz and pieces of the patter papers from Echo Park (all in the kit).  The embellishment is wood and it was unfinished when I received it, so I just took some ink from my stash and colored it. The sentiment is white heat embossed and I just added some mini enamel dots.

Card 8: Nothing much here but great paper and embellishments!

Card 9: I find that putting small stamp images in a grouping is a great way to use those small stamps that don’t get used.  This set had some really crafty images!

Card 10: A simple and pretty card for a friend that lives far.

Card 11: Yes, eleven cards is an odd number but I had to just make one more, lol! Anytime I can use the left overs from my crafty frenzy I love to use the pieces to make my own pattern paper.  Just glue them to a piece of white card stock and create your own pattern paper. I used a stitch square die to add some interest to my panel.

Well that is it!…I had lots of fun with all the supplies.  I did discover that the glue by Simon Says which is new to me was really good and one I will purchase in the future.  Remember you can still purchase many of these supplies and the links are below.

I hope I gave you some inspiration and keep nourishing your creative soul. Have a great day!

"Behind every great crafter...Is a huge pile of craft supplies" -JoAnn   Cheeky but true! I love craft supplies as much if not more than trashy paranormal romance novels. I felt it was time to get down to business and actually use all these craft supplies and make pretty things. Would I be successful? Who knows! But now one will be able to accuse me of not giving it all I got. Which is the reason I started this blog, to share my crafting adventures (or most likely mistakes) with the Internet.   Sad but hey I don't have much of a social life and my husband isn't very interested in hearing about crafts! He's much more interested on how the Patriots or Red Sox are doing than listening to me talk about stamps, cardstock and die cutting.   Paper crafting as you will see is my first crafting passion but as any decent crafter would tell you is impossible not to dabble on all other kind of crafting experiments, hence the name wondering mindfield. So look around and hopefully I will inspire you to try something new, make some "creative" mistakes and relax while creating something "pretty." Thank you for visiting and come back soon!
