It's a Kell-of-a-mess ~ June!

 Hi friends!

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

I had card class yesterday while simultaneously watching my team 

advance forward to the quarter finals for the Euro Cup!

So I had a BLAST creating this cards - SO SUPER DUPER SIMPLE!

Yet fun and ..... ahem, messy :)

Earlier this year, I decided to reclaim a few of my earlier ideas

for cards/groups and asked for a little help on Instagram.

I held a contest for a gift card win for renaming the MESSY series


Kellofamess won!

Honestly, it's a HILAROUS name :/

For my 3 cards, I did free hand watercoloring

 to create the rainbows for a monthly hop theme.

I absolutely LOVE the organic look and didn't mind one bit

that the colors ran or mixed together.

I didn't even mind when I accidently glued made an upside rainbow!

I used Flower Shower from Mama Elephant to complete the look

and left them intentionally uncolored for highlighting the rainbow.

3 simple yet fun to create kellofamess cards!

Thanks for stopping by!

Thank you The Maker Session!

 Hi friends!

I hope this brings you a smile! :)

I have a sponsored post to share with you today

and it's a product review from The Maker Session!

I was invited to try out their gorgeous dauber wand here:

You can see the in action reel here on Instagram!

The dual ended dauber wand is an ink blending gem!

It comes in a variety of colors and I was absolutely delighted

to receive one in Key Lime green - my favorite color!

It also brings an additional 6 dauber wands which are interchangeable ~

just pop off the dauber top and add another one as you like,

especially for ink color changes.

For best results, gently patting down ~ or daubing ~ 

 definitely gives sharp, crisp results 

and the ink stays in the dauber for a long lasting usage!

To showcase the wand, I created a small short 60 second reel

on my Instagram that shows this one is action.

You can see it here!

And here's my card, created with the Pink and Main Cloudy Day stencil

and the A Gift For You stamps and dies, also from P and M.

I used distress inks and use the daubing wand to dab along the clouds

to create that cloud edge.

I repeated the process for creating grass - easily changing out 

the top of the dauber wand to use another color.

The Maker Session wand is perfect for those tiny nooks and crannies

and getting into smaller spaces with stencils.

Those hard to reach corners are easier with an easy to manage and hold 

daubing wand!

One last look:

Thanks so much for stopping by! 



YAY for blogger - 3M June!


Hi friends!

YAY  I'm back on blogger!

Massive thanks to my son who figured out a few bugs

 and has me back online :)

Gotta love teenagers and technology!

Today's the day we 3 Musketeers post our cards with a 'same image'

and this month's image is Hero Arts Birthday Balloons.

Barb was the hostess for this month and 

something. i. just. noticed.

My last month card never posted either and I was the hostest

*face palm!*

I went with bright cheerful fun colors for my balloons

using copic markers.

I paired it with a background made with mica powder and water

and added on a sentiment that came with the image.

Thank you, Barb!

Be sure to see the other 2/3's of the 3M by seeing

 Barb's card here and 

 Jeanette's card here! 

 Thanks for stopping by!
