CAS Birthday Card

I really like the Fusion challenge this round.  Here is their inspiration image:
Great CAS sketch, and I love the floral spray. 
The base is a wonderful wood grain with a pink tint, and the floral paper is a perfect match IRL.  Come play along with us at Words 2 Craft be for our latest challenge phrase, Arithmetic is being able to count to twenty without taking off your shoes.

Watercolor Butterflies

I smooshed different watercolors, die cut the butterflies, and flicked more of the watercolor onto the card base.  I added the Watercolor Wishes "Hello" in Elegant Eggplant.  

Playing along with the Color Throwdown.  My colors are a bit more subtle than the inspiration image, but I like it!

Words 2 Craft By #40 - Mickey Mouse!

This month's challenge at Words 2 Craft By:

Arithmetic is being able to count to twenty without taking off your shoes.  -  Mickey Mouse

Well, maybe not Mickey, but Minnie for sure!!
I have wanted these Swirly Bird Thinlets since I first saw them!!  So many ways to use them, but I think this is one of my favorites!!  I-Teamer Annie, from Pawsitive Thoughts by Annie has been a fabulous part of W2CB for the past 3 years.  Unfortunately for us, (and happily for some lucky rescue puppies) she has decided to spend more time on her puppy passion.  Thank you, Annie, for everything, and all the best to you on your next adventure!  An fortunately for us, Kristina from Kristina's Art Corner has graciously agreed to join the I-Team!  Come along with us at Words 2 Craft By thorough May 3, 2017!

Another Swirly Birds Card

I am quite enjoying my new stamp/die set from SU!
I bought a fun paper pad from Michael's called Paint Chips.  I always struggle with finding different shades of the same color, and this pad of paper solves that problem completely!  Sharing this with House of Cards April Feather and/or Color challenge.

A Different Easter Card

I made a few of these using the Swirly Bird Thinlets. 
Wile it isn't a traditional Easter card, the shape reminds me of the flames on Pentecost.  Sharing this with CAS-ual Fridays Rainbows challenge.

Three Little Bunnies...

I have been playing around with the April SU! Paper Pumpkin stamp set.
I stamped the faces, and die cut them with Spellbinders.  I stamped the ears on two different shades of purple, then fussy cut and layered the inner ear.  I embossed the yellow floral paper with Stylized Flowers, and added the purple bow ties.  I'm sharing this one with The Mod Squad Challenge Ya Wanna Piece of Me, Cuttlebug Mania Some Bunny to Love challenge,  and the Shopping Our Stash Tie One On challenge.

My First Step Card - Probably My Last, too!!

I love trying new techniques.  Some I enjoy, others, not so much.  This is one of those times that I am so glad that I tried something new, but I doubt I will try again. 

Hero Arts Butterfly and Flower Stamp and Cut, colored with Twinkling H2Os and markers.  Thanks to Shopping Our Stash for the prompt to try something new!  There are still a few days to play along with us at Words 2 Craft By for our Proverbs and Blessings challenge!!
