United We Flourish Better Together Blog Hop

Happy Sunday and welcome to my stop on this super special blog hop. This is a wonderful collaboration between Hero Arts and Ellen Hutson LLC and we’re thrilled to bring this limited United We Flourish release to you today. I hope that you arrived here  from the blog of my friend (and the enormously talented) Libby Hickson.

My card is a tiny bit out of my comfort zone. But as I was creating it, I just went with the flow instead of over-thinking it (as I am VERY prone to do). I’m trying very hard this year to just “let go” with my creativity. And see wherever it takes me. I think you’ll see it in the card, too.

It’s cute, isn’t it? I still did some water color and some ink blending with the background, but I didn’t go overboard.  It’s even (dare I say it?) simple? Or at least it is to me! ;) I also don’t make many cute cards, But, these little love birds were fun.

If you’re a bird-lover? Then this set is for you! It’s full of our fine-feathered friends! And all kind of fun sentiments, too. And, if you’re a collector of the United We Flourish sets, then I know you’ll have fun coloring this one for sure.

Here is a better look at the set and coordinating dies:

Be Amazing

Hey there! I have a new card over on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today that I’m calling “Be Amazing”. Why? Because of one of the little sentiment stamps that came on the Mama Elephant set that I used for the card called Organic Blooms. 

I love how this card turned out. I used the stamps from Mama Elephant, all sorts of amazing adhesives (of course) from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®, the die as my centerpiece from Essentials by Ellen, and the Be Amazing stamp to tie it all together.  (All products will be linked below, if any of them are not available just be put on the waitlist — which is awesome!) This panel was water-colored using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. If you don’t have even a few of these markers, I would suggest trying a small set. The Zig Clean Color Markers are pretty amazing.

Be Amazing

Using the inlaid die-cut like this is a beautiful way to draw the eye to the center of the card. It is also a great way to use the entire focal piece without getting rid of all your hard work!

To see alternate views of this “Be Amazing” card, please head over to the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog.  If you have any questions on how I made this card or would like to know more, please let me know. It’s been a while since I’ve made a video… ;)
