Celebrate Springtime Butterfly with Brusho

Oh how I wish I could photograph properly – the red on this card is positively VIBRANT! With this one, I used watercolor paper and brushed on a layer of water using my Aqua Painter. Then I sprinkled on the Brusho Crystal Colours in Red and brushed the entire piece with even more water. Pure color saturation! The butterfly is from a new set called Springtime Impressions Thinlits. Using the Precision Base Plate with the Big Shot produces perfect cutting every time. I popped it up using the Mini Dimensionals and the “Celebrate” sentiment, which is glued down with Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive, is in the Celebrate You Thinlits set. Black Faceted Dots give it that little hint of bling.  Mounted on a Thick Whisper White card base so it can handle the weight of the watercolor paper. Simply striking! You simply must see it in person! Come to my Catalog Kick-Off Party on June 23rd!

Celebration of Colors

Another catalog year is winding down and I’m torn between using my retiring products and breaking out the new. This card combines them both, so I don’t have to choose! The new 2018-2020 In Colors are absolutely scrumptious and the Pineapple Punch gives this card the perfect pop! The embossing folder DEbosses, so the sentiment is impressed down. This allows ink around the word, which is such a fun element.

Birthday Frenzy Twist

The minute I saw the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper in the newest Annual Catalog, I knew I had to have it. The shiny foil accents were all the incentive I needed to hoard it. Well, I say, “No more!” Why keep all this gorgeous paper to myself?  It needs to be shared to bring smiles to others.  I have made a personal pledge to #cutitdonthoardit with all my DSP…join me!

Watercolor Wishes Card Kit

I had been eye-balling the Watercolor Wishes Card Kit in the Annual Catalog (page 155) for quite a while when I first saw it. It has an exclusive stamp set that you cannot purchase separately and I really wanted it. I decided to buy the kit last fall…and then it sat on my table for the longest. I had opened the box a couple times to look at the pretty embellishments and designs, but that was as far as I had gotten.  Last night, though, I decided to break the plastic open to make a couple Birthday cards.  About 2 hours later, I had made ALL 20 CARDS!  They were so easy, fun and sweet!  And I love the heavy cardstock bases.  Nothing cheap about these!  Everything you need is included in the kit – card bases, wooden embellishments, stamps, stamp block, Night of Navy and Watermelon Wonder Ink Spots, Washi tape, die cut stickers and die cut flowers, glue dots and dimensionals and all the matching envelopes!  The kit makes 3 sizes of cards – standard 5 1/2 x 4, notecard 3 1/2 x 5, and cute little square 4 x 4.  The exclusive stamp set has several all-occasion greetings, but I ended up making all Birthday cards, so I used 6 stamps in the set.

Bountiful CASE

Sometimes I enjoy creating a card from scratch. And sometimes I find myself so inspired by a sample, I simply MUST recreate it. That’s exactly how I felt the first time I spied the adorable note cards on page 120 of the Annual Catalog. I knew I’d have to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) them.  CASE’ing is nothing to be ashamed of. It’s the biggest form of flattery for the person that you’re CASE’ing. Just be sure to give them credit! Anyway, the stamp set Bountiful Border could have very easily flown under my radar if it wasn’t for their adorable “You Can Make It” feature.   Don’t forget the matching envelope liners – gives these adorable cards an extra dose of cuteness!  Love Love Love!

Bountiful CASE

Stamp Set: Bountiful Border
Cardstock:  Whisper White Note Cards
Designer Series Paper:  Subtles DSP Stack
Ink:  Rose Red, Wild Wasabi, Wisteria Wonder
Lovelies: Expressions Natural Elements, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Envelope Liners Framelits
