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. †
I have a brand new #TexturalTuesdays project that I named “Be Kind” from the stencil I used on the CLASSroom blog today featuring ways to find your own texture around the house. This was a really fun little canvas for me to make and I hope that you will all enjoy it, too.
Finding new ways to create texture, especially from things that you just have lying around the house, is so much fun. Even if you’re just using it as a focal piece, as I did for two of my pieces on the canvas. But the fun part is that you can see from the pieces used (go to the BLOG ) how these items could be used in so many different ways.
Here is a sneak peek of the Be Kind canvas just to whet your appetite:
I know you can’t tell much from this…it’s a TRUE sneak peek!! But, there’s actually a lot of texture right there. ;) Even just in the words “Be Kind”. I’m loving this sneaky thing. Hahha!!
In the supplies list you’ll be able to see what PRODUCTS I used but not the free stuff, so that won’t give it all away. I really do hope that you’ll check out the full post. It’s not too lengthy and I hope that you’ll find it useful. I know that if you’re a card-maker that enjoys making CAS cards that you may not be super interested in texture, but maybe you would want to use something you learn from the post for art journaling? And it’s really fun and not super messy…not too bad. :)
I hope that you all remember to Be Kind to yourselves first and foremost. It seems that we are all so busy trying to be nice to others we forget about ourselves. Be Kind to YOU. ♥
The supplies I have listed below are affiliate links from Ellen Hutson.com that I used in my project. All of the products were purchased by me with the exception of those with an asterisk.
Hey everyone! I have this cute little Happy Halloween card up on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft blog today. I’ve used the Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils to color and shade the main focal images.
This is by FAR one of my favorite things to do to create color on cards. The depth, shadow, and varieties of color using these pencils is just extraordinary. While there are many varieties of watercolors out there these pencils are glued through the length of the barrel for long-lasting break resistance. The pigments in these pencils also dissolve completely and are permanent, waterproof, and lightfast when dry.
While I’m not a huge fan of Halloween (I know, I know…) the way this card turned out is so CUTE!!
The stamp set is adorable, huh?
The full step-by-step on how to make this cutie Happy Halloween card is over on the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Blog. So, please pop on over there to make your own! :)
Have an awesome week, everyone, and Happy October!
It’s a Flutter By Blog Hop! Okay, well…the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Team is Blog Hopping with Lawn Fawn all week and I made the cutest card! :) So it’s really just a Flutter By Blog Hop for me. :D But we have been blog hopping ALL WEEK LONG! (Have you checked it out yet?)
I made this super cute Birthday Card using Lawn Fawn’s Flutter By stamp set and Lawn Cuts. I love how perfectly the dies work with the stamps.
Using watercolor paper to die cut the flowers, leaves, and butterfly make them perfect for all sorts of pretty techniques, too. I really love this Flutter By set so much. So very versatile. And the Scripty Sayings set is sooo super sweet, too.
And those shimmery stars? Are the new E-Z Stars Refillable from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® They are AMAZING! Can be used with embossing powders, glitters, micas…etc.
Make sure that you stop by and see the alternate views on the blog and read how I made it because there are GIVEAWAYS and you won’t want to miss out.
Hope that you all have an amazing weekend!
