STAMPlorations Things with Wings Spring Celebration


I have one last card for the Things with Wings Celebration at STAMPlorations:)

My card was inspired and CASEd from Jeanne, one of my cardmaking cheerleaders:) Thank you Jeanne for your sweet encouragement and support, here on my blog and on IG!
Now, Jeanne made several cards using the Flutter Zen 1 and Flutters Zen2 die. All are CAS, and beautiful, however, the one that has the dry embossed BG stole my heart! A photo of it can be found on her IG account..to see her card, swipe to the last photo here.

Here is my CASE of Jeanne's card:
I used the Flutters Zen2 die and Distress Oxides with a splash of H20. Placed it on a Dry embossed panel using the Ethnic Organic1 Stencil for the dry embossing and trimmed with
Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.
 I added the SMILE word die which was brushed with Worn Lipstick oxide ink. And finished with a few shades of pink sequins.
I'm tickled with the end results:) Thank you Jeanne for the inspiration!  
Hope you are participating in the Things with Wings Linky Party.

Inspired By #53 challenge.

The bows became watercolored butterflies:))
I spent an evening enjoying the birth of this one while listening to Hillsong United. Starting with a wash of colors from Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolor 36 around the stamped butterflies. Let it dry and added details with SEVERAL brands of markers:) Ziggys, Spectrum Aqua, Altenew Alcohol, and a few Distress. In  hindsight, I wish I had turned the camera on to go back and see the various stages of coloring. Sigh, maybe next time!..the watercolor paper of Strathmore 300 Cold Press 80lb. I LOVE the tooth on this paper.
Sentiment is from This set. 
Hope this encourages you to take time to Create something you LOVE and play along with us at Inspired By All the Little Things.

All About Layering 2 Class

Hello! I've been participating in the All About Layering 2 Class at Altenew Academy..it's a FREE one so how could I refuse:)) The class can be joined at anytime, So You can still participate!
It has been so helpful in learning how to layer each set. 
Most of the layering sets come with a guide on the back of the set or it can be found on the website. However, Nicole, who is the instructor, gives a MORE detailed layering point guide in each very short video. 
Here are few of my cards made for homework.

Lesson 1: Peony Bouquet
Lesson 3: Remember This


Lesson 6 – Painted Rose

All have the color pallette from the April 2017 Inspiration Challenge
I use the MINI Crisp Ink sets:

The sentiments from Lesson 1 & 3 are from

Gray with a pop of color

Hello! There is a new challenge at Inspired By All the Little Things.
I was inspired by the Gray and pops of Coral/peach.
 I Heat embossed the Freestyle Stripes BG in Black EP and die cut a window. Stamped the sentiment and created a Shaker with two mixes of Sequins: Coral Necklace and Guava Sparkle from The Ton. Then I embellished with some no-line colored Wishful Wildflowers. Which I fussy cut.
