Craft Your Passion-Anything Goes
Glitter and Sparkle- Use a Butterfly
When we recently went for a week up to Quebec we had a lot of people help out with our fur babies so in thanks for all the help they did, I created the same style cards for each one just in different colours. This was strange for me to do because I normally do not repeat the same style card because I feel like I am on a conveyor belt but it felt right because I created 5. The only up close one I forgot to take a picture of was the pink one which ended up going to my hubby's sister. I stamped the same flower motif on white cardstock and used 2 different colour hues for the same flower. I took strips of vellum, heat-embossed the thank-you saying in the corresponding colour, stamped & heat-embossed the butterfly on some and the dragonfly on others and adhered it to the main card. I added sticker borders that I coloured along with stickles for the dots and the cards got finished. This took longer than I thought but I like the results. On to the next....

I had a ducky time creating these fun cards. They are not that hard to do as they just involve layering and layering for a 3D look. I love the first 2 because they are summery looking and I love blue:) They are all carrying flowers for someone special which I think is tweet...OK I'll stop:) They will be hanging around for a while since these are suited for kids especially girls. If you would like one of these I don't mind sending one to you:)
Simon Says-Anything Goes
I tried something new with this card which is called kissing. No I did not kiss the card, I may beat to my own drummer but I am not that weird. I was going to enter this at Happy Little Stampers but I missed the boat! The background lilac ..er...blob was stamped in lilac and then I stamped my music notes stamp in a dark red and I placed that stamp on top of the lilac blob stamp. I took my lilac blob and stamped it on white paper and Voila! I have the kissed look. I used a dye cut for the leaves which I sponged in a soft green and I stamped the rose in a pink pearl, embossed it with my heating tool and then used my pastels to colour the rose. I adhered it to this nice white paper and stamped the saying in Lilac and embossed it as well.

Tuesday Throwdown- Happy Birthday
I tried something new! I bought these colour bursts. They are powders which you just sprinkle a bit on a piece of paper and spritz in with water and watch the colours burst forth and blend. You can keep watering it down until you like the look. To me, this almost looks like fireworks. I took some of my stash of coloured paper and embossed the green card with my cuddlebug. I used some fancy scissors to cut the red paper and gold paper and embossed the red with my cuddlebug. I gues it all together to make this card. I used my sizzex to cut the corner pieces and glued them in adding the green crystals and leaves. I heat embossed the leaf and dragonfly. For a final flourish, I added the Happy Birthday sticker. This card went to my brother who celebrated his Freedom 55 Birthday.
I have made a couple more which I plan to show later this week.
