Beautiful Butterflies


Hello Everyone,
 It's Ceal here to share with you a card using My Favorite Things and Distress Oxide inks. To make my card I started with a top folding white card base and some striped design paper. I used the straight piece from the Stitched Basic Edges 2 by My Favorite Things to create the slanted opening for the greeting. 
Next I created a rainbow of colors in that opening by blending together some Distress Oxide inks in Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Wilted Violet and then spritzing with water to get the effect before stamping the greeting by using the MISTI tool for positioning and overstamping to make it darker.


For the butterflies I used some Bristol paper and blended the same colors of  Distress Oxides mentioned before and then used the Beautiful Butterflies Die-namics to cut them out. After cutting them out I used the MISTI tool again and placed the stamp in the negative space  and picked it up with the lid of the MISTI and then placed the die cut in the negative space and stamped the butterfly from the Beautiful Butterflies stamp set. To finish the card I added some sequins for sparkle.

Sorry I'm Slow - Belated Birthday

Hi, Lisa here today sharing punny "belated" birthday card.
If you are like me, you will need some of these in your stash.  And yes, I created this for a dear friend who's birthday I missed. OOps. 
 I started by stamping the sloth on white cardstock using Lawn Fawn's Hang In There in a light kraft ink so I could do the no-line coloring technique with Copics.  I used Copics E37, D57, E35, E31, E33, E000, E00, E11, E21.  I used a fine Copic Multiliner pen to go over the mouth and nose. I fussy cut the image out, added google eyes and foam tape to pop up on my card front.  I then die cut my tree leaf background using a cloud die from white cardstock.  Then I sponged on top of it with Ranger's Oxide Ink Peeled Paint and Mini Ink Blending Tool.  I adhered my leaf panel to my card front, popped up my sloth, added my sentiments using my Mini MISTI then added bits of American Crafts' Shimelle Washi Tape

April Showers

 April showers DO bring May flowers -- and my allergies can attest to it!  But I don't mind at all because Spring is my favorite season!  I love spring showers.  Everything smells so fresh and clean after the rain stops and the trees, flowers and plants just jump to life when next the sun shines!
 
 For my card, I used the new My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Showering You with Love stamps/dies.  I may have gone a little crazy with pattern paper, but couldn't resist the yummy designs in the American Crafts Shimelle True Stories 6x6 paper pack!
 I really enjoy paper piecing...can you tell?!

Wishing You


Hi there, it's Ceal here with you today sharing a card made with new products from Concord & 9th.
To make my card I started with a purple card base and a piece of  cold press watercolor paper. I stamped the rose heart image from the set You Are Here in Versamark ink embossed it in gold and then used Peerless watercolor paints to color it in. 
The greeting is also from a new release set Many Mandalas. To finish the card I added some sequins for sparkle.
