Butterfly Thinlits as Stencils for Shimmer Paint

I have a pretty card for you today that was easy to create ... using thinlits as stencils, reinkers and Shimmer Paint.  I saved the butterflies I cut for the stencil and will use them for a future project.
I mixed the Coastal Cabana reinker with Frost White Shimmer Paint.  What a pretty color!  I love the light blues and greens together -- a dramatic look of Spring.
The little flowers are totally flat, so easy to mail.

Butterflies Thinlits ... Two Card Designs

I love butterflies, almost as much as dragonflies.  Butterflies were a favorite of my mom's and I think of her every time I see one.  Today, I'm sharing two ways to use our beautiful thinlits. 
One card has a watercolored background.  The other card has a very clean, simple background.
Both cards have butterflies that are cut from watercolor paper and watercolored with Brusho.
Which one do you like the best?

A Cute Little Thank You

Today's card is a note card ... a cute little thank you.  Remember, you can mail this size card as well as an A4 card.
The stamp set I used is a Hostess stamp set (Just Because) from the Occasions Catalog.  If you look at the set, on page 54, you will see that there is a text already attached to it, saying Happy Mother's Day.  I carefully cut the stamp apart, separating the text.  Now, I can still use it for Mother's Day, use the image with a different text, or use the Mother's Day text with a different image.  It just makes it even more versatile.  You can do this on any stamp that looks like it has enough space between the image and the text that you can safely cut it apart.
The note cards already have the color in the background.  I just colored the stamp image with watercolor pencils.  I think it's cute.

A Beautiful 'Hi' Card ... Times Three!

I have a card to share with you today that I just love ... but wait ... I have three cards!  The first is Gorgeous Grape, so what's not to love! 
I added Wink of Stella to the letters.  I mixed up some Brusho to watercolor a little background behind the letters.
Now, take the piece from which you cut your letters and use it for a second card.
I love how you can see all the movement from the Brusho in the background. 
The card on the left (below) was created in Bermuda Bay and was my inspiration for the Gorgeous Grape card.  I love them both!
Which card do you like the best?

Card Trio for my May Scraps and Prayers Class ... Total Technique Fun!

Today, I have a trio of super fun cards to share with you.  We will be making all three of these at our May Scraps and Prayers class.  They include several fun techniques. 
One card involves watercoloring the flower from our Beautiful Day stamp set.  The second card uses our Daisy punch and has a couple of super fun and easy techniques using two of our Textured Impressions Embossing Folders (TIEF).  The third card has yet a third technique for using our embossing folders.  It's also fun and super easy.  We'll be using the Stamparatus, too, so that our stamping will come out just perfect.  I think you'll love this class!  Pay to register soon, to save your spot.







If you live in my area, I hope you'll come and join us for an evening of fellowship and creative fun.

Bunches of Butterflies ... a Duo and a Trio

Before I share today's post ... 
Here's a reminder for my Scraps and Prayers people ...
I will have a sneak peek for you ASAP.  I have all 3 of our cards nearly finished.  They are so pretty and shout Spring, for sure.  One card involves watercoloring the flower from our Beautiful Day stamp set.  The second card uses our Daisy punch and has a couple of super fun and easy techniques using two of our Textured Impressions Embossing Folders (TIEF).  The third card has yet a third technique for using our embossing folders.  It's also fun and super easy.  We'll be using the Stamparatus, too, so that our stamping will come out just perfect.  I think you'll love this class!  Pay to register soon, to save your spot.

And now, today's fun ...

I get Spring Fever this time of year, but not in a lie around and be lazy kind of way.  It drives me to take on all kinds of ambitious projects, as I feel filled with renewed energy.  As the earth wakes up from its winter sleep, I kind of do, too.  Silly maybe, but I've seen a pattern.  It may be even worse this year because I'm just now getting back more of the use of my hand ... and ... we had such a long, tedious winter.  My middle grandson told me yesterday that he misses winter.  I told him he may be the only one around here who does.  Actually, I love all the seasons and Spring and Fall are my favorites.  Part of that plays into the artist in my soul, as Spring and Fall seem to be such wonderful times for colors.  Colors seem to wake up in Spring, go very vivid in Summer, and then, well, Fall is a whole palette of gorgeous colors.  Spring makes colors come alive and my soul bursts with happiness. So, in the spirit of today's frenzy, I have bunches of butterflies to share with you. 
I scattered sequins here and there to add a bit of bling.
I love the Balmy Blue with the black and white color story.
All the butterflies were fussy cut from DSP.
