MAKE IT MONDAY #282: STENCILED WATERCOLOR BACKGROUNDS

 

This was so fun and easy! I used Melon Berry, Sweet Blush and Pure Poppy reinkers. I kept my card simple because the background spoke for itself!

I used my Misti to stamp the sentiment, first in Pure Poppy and then with Versa-mark, then I clear embossed. I added sequins, dots and twine ~ all done!

April 2017 Blog Hop Inspiration


I was so inspired by this photo with colors I don't normally use, that I made two cards for this months Blog Hop!


One for Mother's Day, and another for encouraging a friend! 


The butterfly is from Pretty Peonies and I used Sweet Blush for my watercolor background.

Color Throwdown Countdown #439

Such a perfect color scheme for a bouquet of Spring blooms!




I used Better Together from PTI. I embossed in gold and then used my watercolor paints. So much prettier in real life!

MAKE IT MONDAY #281: PATTERNS BEHIND DIE-CUT WINDOWS

Had fun using Dawns technique for layering pattern under a window diecut. 


I cut my frame using Lavender Moon patterned paper. My flowers are from Fresh Bouquet and the sentiment from Garden Grace. I used a stencil directly on my card base. I loved doing this and will use it again!

CREATE ALONG WITH US: APRIL 2017


Love all the inspiration we are seeing this month!  I couldn't wait to make a pretty Mothers Day card like this one. 



I used different colors, but I loved the Botanical Letters for MOM!


I don't have the dies, but it worked fine stamping directly onto the card. !

Make It Monday #280: Stamping Outside of the Box

I don't make a lot of clean and simple cards, but this was so fast!  I got home from work, and put this together in no Time! 


I had the tulips made, and I've been putting Easter cards together with them. I love how this came about! The block was stamped in New Leaf, it is from the Superhero set.

Color Throwdown #436

 I made a card for my daughter this morning. I picked up a little gift for her "just because" and I wanted to tuck this in when I send it.  When I got to my craft table to put it together, the inks for this week's  Color Throwdown were sitting out, so there you go! Just the inspiration I needed.


It isn't quite this dark, it's a gloomy morning and tough to get a decent picture! Thanks for looking, it was a beautiful color combination this week!
