Hello Spring

Hey everyone! I have a new card – Hello Spring – on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today! When I think of Spring I think of my mom’s beautiful daffodil’s that pop up every year. They are so bright, sunny and beautiful. Almost like a ray of sunshine without fail every year in her yard. My mother has such a green thumb, which I sorely lack. Lisa = black thumb. Hahha!!

My Hello Spring card is what I hope a reflection of the beautiful daffodils that I see every year in her yard.  They sure make me smile and I hope that it will make YOU smile too. This is a little sneak peek, as usual. So the pretty daffodils (other than the stalks) can be seen on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog.

I have a bit of an addiction to watercoloring, so this is a combination of two types: watercolor pencils and Peerless Watercolors. And I love the way the two work together. Heck, there are no rules…why not play with *all* of them?! Do what you love, I say.

I think that this Hello Spring card could be used for so many things, too. Don’t you? It’s just a bright, happy card. Why not make something similar and send it someone whose day needs brightening?

Happy Spring and a Blessed Easter, too. †

Fabulous You

I have a brand new #TexturalTuesdays card that I’ve aptly named “Fabulous You” for the CLASSroom today.  Plenty of beautiful shine and subtle texture on this one today. I’ve really been enjoying using my colored pencils and may have to upgrade. Hahha!!

Here is today’s sneak peek:

Kind of a BIG peek!

The words are from Julie Ebersole’s beautiful die set Totally Fabulous and I created the word “You” from the Basic Alpha Set, to create “Fabulous You”. I thought that would be kind of fun and just a tiny bit different.

This card has two different colors of foil and patterned papers from three different companies. Stitched dies, embossing on patterned paper, inking…and all kinds of fun stuff!! If you want to see how I made it? I do have a tutorial (a wordy one) over on the CLASSroom blog today with lots of pics. ;) And I’d love it if you checked it out.

Hoping that YOU have a fabulous day!

Mixed Media Christmas Card

Happy weekend! I hope everyone has had a wonderful week. It’s been very busy around here  and TONS of rain. But I have a new Mixed Media Christmas card to share that I made for the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® blog today.

This card was an absolute BLAST to make! And in the truest spirit of Mixed Media, too. :) So many kinds of papers, mediums, and textures. And so perfect for Christmas or any Winter holiday.

I have the full step-by-step tutorial on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® blog and a complete product list, as well. So if a Mixed Media Christmas Card is your cuppa tea (or java) then please hop on over to see how this was made! :)

Enjoy your weekend and have a fantastic day!

Sophie Christmas

Happy Monday! I have a new post over on the Bloom Girls Design Team blog today!!

I’m using one of Jamie’s Bloom Girl stamps, Sophie, all done up for Christmas. I know!! Christmas?!! So soon!! Where has the year gone? But, here it is, almost Thanksgiving and we’re busy designing cards for the holidays.

The Bloom Girls Design Team will have our cards featured on the Prima blog this week for their 12 Cards of Christmas so make sure that you check out their blog this week, as well. It will be filled with inspiration from all of the  very talented designers.

Back to my card for today! Here she is. :)

Even though this is a pic of the FULL card, I’d still loooooooove for you to stop by the blog to see the full post and the close-ups. I’m really pleased with how this card turned out.  It’s such a non-traditional Christmas card. Even the papers that I used weren’t Christmas-y! Using Christmas colors is a great way to bring that holiday touch to a a maybe not-so obviously Christmas looking card.

I wish you all a fabulous week and can’t wait to hear what you all think about the 12 Cards of Christmas.

 

It’s a New Card Monday

Hey there! It’s a New Card Monday!! I’m so proud of the one that I have to share on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today. I gotta tell ya, I’m not always super thrilled by the cards that I make. Sometimes I like parts of them, sometimes I like the technique, or sometimes I wish I could just throw them away (it happens), but I really do LOVE the way that this card turned out. Lots of cool stuff going on with it, too.

Here’s your sneak peek:

This card is really dimensional, shiny, shimmery and super pretty. I hope that you’ll all go over to the Scrapbook Adhesives blog to see the whole thing. :)

I’ll also have a UStream this week with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® THIS Wednesday at 6:00 PM PST. But check out THEIR blog just in case things change.  Maybe “New Card Monday” will be something I’ll have to do every week….hmmm….I’ll give it some thought. 

Wishing you ALL an amazing week. xoxo
