Spring Violets

  Hello, this is Beverly here to share my Sympathy card using Kenndy Grace Creations Grace's Little Note.

 Since Spring has arrived, I felt my card needed more of a bright feel to it so I colored the flowers as Aftican Violets with Copic Markers, and Prisma Pencils.  I did want to match Kathy Racoosin's Day 10 card sample of using distress inks on my background. I then fussy cut the flower and stems out, and tied it with a piece of burlap thread, as she had somewhat done. The Sequins are Kennedy Grace Creations Enchanted Evening. The sentiment is from the same set.
  To keep with the Spring feel of the card, I chose a floral design from Crate Paper. It matched the colors so well also.

Hope this brings sunshine in your life today,

Julie Nutting "Mia" Paperdoll card

Well, another Spring birthday card and this one I used the Paper Smooches Happy Birthday die cut on the front of it! This is the "Mia" Julie Nutting Paper Doll and she is just so flirty and fun!! I added a K & Co. Lady Bug, and a Want2Scrap butterfly to show the Springtime feel! All the papers and tag are all Prima Marketing, with a small tag at the bottom from my stash. The cream bow is from Snug Hug seambinding, Trendy Twine in gold and white, collaged with 8 Prima Marketing blossoms, paper flowers, and tiny blossoms from my stash.
The doll is colored with my Copic Sketch Markers which were, skin: E000. E00. E21; hair: E53 and 2 Prismacolored pencils of orange, and brun.
I made this for a special friend, and for the Frilly and Funkie "Welcome Spring" challenge.

Julie Nutting Spring Card

Using my Julie Nutting Mindy stamp, I stamped with one Momento Tuxedo Black, and then colored in with Copic Markers. Colors used: BG70, BG72, BG75, E21, E00. E000, RV17. RV19, R21.
I made a card base with Prima Marketing pattern papers, and matching tag. The doily was cut from white cardstock from the DoCrafts X-cut Vintage doily die.  May Arts Lace 1.5 was folded several times and glued down onto the tag. I then layered several Prima Marketing flowers from Tales of Me and You collection. I punched hearts and glued pearl hearts to them. I wanted to have a floating heart in the middle of the flowers so fan folded a piece of 1/4" pink paper by 1 inch length. I adhered pearl hearts to all the pink paper hearts as well as the "spring" fold. It needed a bow so I used May Arts 1/4" Hot Pink Organza ribbon.
I actually made it for someone special's upcoming birthday and so tickled how it came out!!

Mixed Media using Ken Oliver's Colorburst

Today's post is one of my Mixed Media projects that I made for a friend. It is on a piece of wood panel from Zutter and is the front of a notebook yet to be made, like Lisa Hoel had done. I also took Lynne Forsythe's inspiration of using Wendy Vecchi's embossing paste through Tim Holtz's Hearts stencil then drying it and adding Ken Oliver's Gamboge Colorburst powder, then spritzing it with water.  But the first thing I did was to use Pan Pastels in red and yellow on a piece of Watercolor paper. This sentiment is Impression Obsession by Yvonne Blair's which was stamped with Versamark.  After I die cut the Sizzix Caged Bird onto a slick paptern paper I added Viva Crackle Paste, dried it and then after dry I again added Ken Oliver's Colorburst in Cerulean Blue, and then added the Gamboge again. The flower is Stampendous Lovely Garden Jumbo and die, stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black ink, onto watercolor paper.  Sprinkled with Ken Oliver Colorburst in Scarlet amd Spritzed with water and layered a little more. The colors I used all were from Ken Oliver's Color Burst Rich Moroccan Shades and I love them!! The last step was taking the wood piece and Stayz On black ink onto the edges before glueing it down with Beacons 3 in One adhesive.
Well, that's all for me now! Enjoy!

Friday, February 24, 2017 Color Combo

I used a premade layout I had bought on that day, and then used Un-do to remove all the parts that didn't match with my theme such as the sandals, but left the map. I added the shopping bags via my Cricut Explore of course!!  All three bag shapes were from Mickey and Friends cartridge. I added the small flowers and BLACK bling to them to stay in the color combo. The tiles were cut from the Cricut Craft Room freebie! The papers were from my stash and the scallop was already cut. I made it a pocket and put journaling and "passport" we used for the day in it.
    I love it and can't believe we did this!! We did it all in ONE day!!! 437 miles!!!! Crazy!! Never again!!
