Watercolor and Butterflies

This month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is sharing the new arrival of Eileen's Heartfelt Collection releasing in April.  I made a simple "messy" card featuring the new Heartfelt Birds and Butterflies Thinlit 6 pack die cut in felt.  

This is a quick easy card you can make in a hurry if needed.


This is a simple watercolor card, quick messy and fun!  A few die cuts, a little embossing and inking.


After the inking mess and die cuts a little dimension never hurts to the Stitched Oval.  I created a little peek with the Wildflowers cut out.


A simple card... with butterflies and wildflowers.


 The felt layered butterfly is a perfect spring card.


The Nuance Powders are soft and subtle for the background and embossed areas.


The great thing using a negative cut for the card means I have the wildflower to use.  Here it's inked with Nuance Powders and layered inside with a Handwritten Thanks die cut.


Embossing is a quick way to add dimension as we all know.  Why not add some colour.

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
