Hi there!

Butterfly Birthday



It's my turn to post for this weeks challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More,
this is our photo inspiration week. have fun! 


I combined two of my favorite butterfly stamps by Stampin Up for my card Watercolor Wings and Butterfly Basics. I used the MISTI to hep me line them up since they are layering stamps. As I have said before I would not even go there with layering stamps before the MISTI.

Coloring Challenge Day 27




Happy Monday! 
It's day 27 of the coloring challenge already, where has March gone? The good thing is it's only 4 more sleeps until my birthday. 
I love this flower stamp by CAS-ual Fridays so I decided that I would use it for their current challenge. 



To make my card I started with a top folding card base and a stencil. I used some Lawn Fawn mermaid ink and a dauber to create my background. I colored the floral image from the Truth Is set with Copic markers for the 30 Day coloring challenge at The Daily Marker. To finish the card I added a small butterfly from the Be set.

Cups


I am up on the Sweet 'n Sassy blog today with this card made for the Spring Coffee Lovers hop and the 30 days of coloring at The Daily Marker
I started with a top folding card base, a piece of Perfectly Plaid paper by Lawn Fawn and some hot press watercolor paper. 
I stamped the cup image from the set Special Blend  using Raven ink by Brutus Monroe and colored them using Zig cleancolor real brush pens. I used a stitched border from My Favorite Things. Since I used watercolor paper I also used the MISTI to ensure a crisp image.

Lucky


I know St Paddy's day is come and gone, but I am just getting a chance to make a card for The Ton's challenge of Lucky.


To make my card I used a white top folding card base and another white scrap of card stock. I used a brayer and covered the entire panel with Mowed Lawn distress ink, next I used the Dahlia Close Up Background stamp and sprayed water on it and layer it down on my Mowed Lawn panel for about 5 seconds, this left this gorgeous pattern in the paper. My intention was to use it as my background, but then I decided it would make a gorgeous dress for the Haute Wedding Dress. I colored her using Copic Markers and added the "lucky" greeting to finish my card.
This one is also for day 20 of the 30 day coloring challenge at The Daily Marker.

Because Butterflies Make You Feel Better


Today starts a new challenge at AAA Cards, our sponsor for this challenge is STAMPlorations with a fabulous prize of the flutter Zen 1 layering dies plus the Hello Sunshine phrase die. They are also offering 10% to all our players!



For my card I used a butterfly die from Concord & 9th. The background was made using the distress oxide inks, I tell ya I am hooked on those things.
