To create my card I used the beautiful Stampin' Up! set "Watercolor Wings" and a sentiment from the SU set "Garden In Bloom". I stamped my butterfly using MFT Lush Lagoon and Cornflower. The watercolor background was created using the same colors.

Guest Designing for Butterfly Reflections Ink!

 
 
http://butterflyreflectionsink.3dcartstores.com/
 
Hello friends! I am here with my second card as the January Designer for Butterfly Reflections Ink! Valentine's Day or love themed cards are my second favorite kind of card to make. (Christmas is my #1!) Here is the love themed card I created using Hero Arts stamps and dies:
 
 
BFIGuestDesign
 
         I used the Hero Arts stamp and die combo set "Love". The font of the "love" die is SO pretty! I created a watercolor brushstroke background using Peerless watercolor sheets. I accented my card with gold glimmer paint (any brand will do, but I used Heidi Swapp) and a die-cut border using the MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle Stax. I love these SO much and have to resist using them on all my cards!
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful Day!

Simon Says: Create With Critters - Playing Along With the SSS Weekly Challenge

 
http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/wednesdaychallenge/simon-says-create-with-critters/
 
Hello! Today I am playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. The theme this week is Critters! Now I don't now about you but Lawn Fawn is one of the first companies that comes to mind when I think about adorable critter stamps! I used my beloved Lawn Fawn set "Hedgehugs" and "Stuck on You" to create my card. I also used a handful of MFT Die-namics. Here is my card!
 
Lawn Fawn Hedgehugs and Stuck On You
 
I had a lot of fun creating my desert scene. I found the sand patterned paper at Hobby Lobby, it was exactly what I was looking for. Well I'm happy you stopped by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend! They are calling for snow here, which is rare so the kids are excited. Stay warm!

Hello hello! Today I am SUPER excited to share a card that I created for the January Ellen Hutson Mix it Up Challenge. The challenge was to use MFT (Hey, I've got LOTS of that!) along with Essentials By Ellen product. Here is my bright and happy card:

     I fell in love with the Essentials By Ellen Be-You-tiful die as soon as I saw it! I also used one of my favorite masking dies from MFT, Concentric Circles. I had fun adding sequins, maybe went a bit overboard, but it was fun! I am SO happy you stopped by, and thank you for your sweet comments. I appreciate them SO much!
