I watercolor him using daniel smith watercolors...I luv using these watercolors! I sponged background using a simon says stamp stencil, called irregular dots. A simple stories sticker sentiment, some twine, and a few enamel dots complete me card. Be sure to stop by the design teams blogs(links below) and see what they have created...this team is AMAZING!

A fun card today, I have used the adorable bubble stamp to create the fun background and then wen t back and added a bit of stickles to soem of the bubbles. I cut a heart from striped black and white designer paper using the lawn fawn stitched heart die and the adorable flower. I added a few clear sequins to the center of the flower and the faux watercoloring(spritzing with water after it was stamped with distressed ink)...I luv using this technique; fun, quick, and pretty. I cannot wait to see what you create..have fun!

inspired by - be in the moment


super fun inspiration photo this week from laurel for the inspired by challenge. I went with a lot of white space and a pretty red flower is from the stamp market, watercolor bouquet stamps and dies. It was a red stamped flower in my stash, I added some dimension to it by using a colored pencil to add some lines and details. I paired it with simon says stamp clustered leaves die. The sentiment is from pinkfresh studio live more stickers. A few ink splatters, copper sequins in the center of the flower, and some gold stickles on the flower too; add to the interpretation of the glossy cherries on the cheesecake.

words with meaning - not all storms come to disrupt your life, some come to clear your path.

hello friends, we are adding a die cut or two today. I am luvin, I mean truly luvin this leaf die from penny black called berry branch...so sweet with the berries. We all know I luv flowers, but I have a confession...I secretly luv leaves just as much! I like pairing different leaves and flowers together...eeeehhhh. I enjoy creating a few extras when I am stamping and then add them to my little box of goodies/leftovers. When I need a quick card, I reach for it every time and pick out a cute little combo! I used the frame die cut from polka dotted paper, added it to the watercolor splash background, and layered it all for a fun card! I can't wait to see what you create!

words with meaning - do not seek love. be love. then you'll never be without it.
