St Patricks Day


Newton's Nook had this cute St Patrick's kitten and sentiment.  The Rainbow sentiment is from Stampin up.  I created the rainbow with Distress inks.  The grass die is from Memory Box.
There are all kinds of gold spritz, splatters and sprays.

Disneyland Birthdays

                                         I still love and use my circle punches frequently!
We will soon be in Disneyland celebrating birthdays!  These were quick and easy gift tags for both boy and girl.

Butterfly Card #2

One more butterfly card this time with a Stampendous butterfly stamp.

Butterfly Card

Jennifer McGuire recently posted a card with a die cut circle and elements coming out from the circle.  She also featured a background technique.
I went with this MFT floral background in black and white, Whippersnapper butterfly colored with Copices and a sentiment embossed in white.
This turned out very different than Jennifer's cards.  It's also an unusual look for me.  But I love it!

Whipper Snapper Butterfly

What a fun butterfly this is to color!  Now I need to figure out the background for a card with this very busy, colorful butterfly.

Beautiful Day with Distress Oxide Inks

This is another Distress Oxide ink with an Altenew floral image, Beautiful Day.  I borrowed my friend's die for this card.  Oh, my, now I want the dies too!!!
My metallic of choice is almost always gold.  However, I used silver on this and I like it!
I thought it would be a sympathy card.  They I put Stickles on the center of the flower.  Now I'm not sure it qualifies for a sympathy card so I left the sentiment off.
The scallop rectangle die is from MFT.  This card was its inauguration.

Erum Tasneem posted the most beautiful card using the Adore You Altenew stamp set.
I have copied her layout but used Distress Oxide instead of the more vibrant watercolors she used.
I smushed the Oxide ink 3 times, drying thoroughly between each application.
I am happy with Tim Holtz' spatter brush and Gold Mica for the spatters . . . something that I've struggled with.
The Thanks die is from W Plus 9.
