Who Are You Thinking Of?

Hello everyone!! First let me begin by saying THANK YOU to all of the ladies over at CAS(E) this Sketch!

I received Honorable Mention for the card that I made last week for their challenge.  How neat is that!! If you missed the card, check out the mention here.

The card I create was a cute one, I must say.  The winner Semee, her card is truly amazing and her win was well deserved.  I might have to CASE her card.  I have to ask her. (I just did, waiting for a response, LOL).

Now on to the matter at hand.

I’m here with CAS(E) this Sketch #86.  Today sketch was done by Sam Simpson.  Its simple and pretty.

Here is my card:

Thinking Of You

The strip of pattern paper is from Bo Bunny which was in my Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit.

I used Papertrey Ink’s Life is Beautiful Die set to cut my butterfly out of Simon Says Stamp Cardstock that came in the August Card Kit, Sunshine and Orange Peel.

I used Papertrey Ink’s Keep It Simple: Thinking of You Mini Stamp set to stamp my sentiment three times with Papertrey Ink’s Summer Sunrise Ink Pad.

For the add touch I added Stampin’ Up! rhinestone to the butterfly wings.

What do you think?  Let me know.

Creative Way To Have Fun With Watercolors

 

watercolor for card makers

OMG!!!  In my Watercolor for Card Makers class, Julie Ebersole, showed us how to do some creative watercolor stamping!!  I was blown away.  The card she made was so playful and nice.  I had to make my own version of the card.  She used some inks, watercolor paper, a beautiful butterfly wings die by Memory Box and a pencil eraser.  Yes, a pencil eraser, talk about non-tools in my tool box.

The only thing I didn’t have, was the butterfly wings die, so I ordered it and it arrive today.  I’m so lucky because that die is out of stock now.

When I saw the die on my desk, I knew I had to create this card today!

Butterfly side

Aren’t you amazed!!! The butterfly wings just pop right off the paper.  It gives the card a 3 dimensional look.  It looks amazing.

Instead of using inks, I used my Koi watercolors to create my dots.  The dots were made with the pencil eraser.  I added the three colors to my color palette and then I dipped my pencil eraser into each of the three colors and applied it to my paper.  I made sure to place the dots in one area so that I can cut my butterfly wings for dimension.

Let me know what you think.

 

Congrats to Lizzie T she won the SSS Wrapped Mailing Label Die.  Lizzie T I will contact you so that I can send you the die.  Thanks for visiting my blog.
