Butterfly Prints/& update on my cousin


This card I made for my Aunt. I started with the stamping 411 sketch but I think I might be a little to late to enter it. I flipped the sketch on its side. It's not exact but the ideas there. Almost everything on this card is new stuff. The butterflys are from the butterfly prints set (I added dazzling diamonds to the butterflys) The background is from the new confetti stamp set (Love it). I used the new color coach for the colors on this card. I started with the butterfly stamped in Tangerine tango so I used the colors suggested for that color. They were Tangerine tango/cajun craze, so saffron, and pacific point. I added a neutral of crumb cake. The so saffron strip on the side is punched using the dotted scallooped ribbon border punch and the added bling is the new rhinestone jewels. I love how this turned out, what do you think?

I also wanted to give an update on my cousin. He was accepted into the craig rehab center in Denver. He will go there in about a week. I guess this is one of the best brain and spinal cord injury rehab centers in the country. We are very excited for him to get started on rehab and get better. We would still appreciate prayers for him. His name is Justin. Thank you so very much for your prayers:)

Hi, love the butterflies and the color combo. I find the color wheel really helpful too. We haven't received the new catalogue yet and new colors, so can still use it, but in September it all changes, so will have to get a new one. Love your card tho, and will add your cousin to my prayers. All the very best to him. Rel x

Easter

This is the Easter card I made for my kids this year.  This is so fun.  The chicks are made from the Circle punch, itty bitty flower punch, the scallop circle punch, and the owl punch.  I made the grass using the new fringe scissors.  The clouds are done using a template and sponging soft sky ink.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Flowering Fields

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!  
Today's card uses another stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog.  It's called flowering fields on page 12.  You can have this beautiful stamp set for free with a qualifying order.  I stamped some of the flowers with versa mark and embossed with white embossing powder.  The other ones were stamped in blackberry bliss.  What do you think of that ribbon?  The pool party glitter ribbon is in the Occasions catalog and it is AMAZING.  Most glitter ribbons can be difficult to work with but not this one.  It is so easy to work with and ties beautifully.  The sentiment is from the "First Sight" stamp set in the Occasions catalog.
Well that's about it for today.  I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend and enjoying the Super Bowl today.  
Happy Stamping!

Avant Garden

Hello stampers,

I'm back with some more coloring.  This is another card from my Challenge class last month.  I used the water color pencils on this card however I did not use any water.  I just simply used them like you would a colored pencil.  I love how this turned out. 
Here is a close up of the flower....
I used the gray pencil and the white pencil on the flowers and a little bit of green on the stem.  This stamp set is called Avant Garden and can be yours for free with a $50 order before tax and shipping.  This offer is only good until March 31 and only while supplies last so don't wait if there is something you had your eyes on.  You can check out all of the free sets by clicking on the links for Sale-a-bration on the right hand side of my blog.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping by
