Happy Wednesday!

Im am SO stoked for summer. While shopping at Michaels the other day (yes for more Martha) I got these beautiful ribbons by MS. As I stacked each one to pay, I was immediately inspired to create this card! Look at the sequence of ribbon, that is EXACTLY how it was stacked, and it totally inspired my colors for this card. I knew I had to find a way to use them all together. So this is what I came up with.

A few weeks ago I was creating for a design call (wish me luck). As I stamped this “Paisley” from Jolies Fleurs, it was originally intended to be a background. With one twist of my wrist I just starred at the image for the longest time, and realized that the paisley was a BUTTERFLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is it NOT gorgeous?

On my other card I forgoed the paisley bkgd and went for the butterfly. Hopefully you will see it IN PRINT! LOL! If its rejected I will share it here.

So, I stamped with black craft ink, and clear embossed. I then used my prismacolor markers to color it in. A bit of Heidi Swap jewels were in need for the center.

Once again my Onare template from Ellen H was in need. I think its like my favorite tool these days.

Once all the layers were configured I stamped the flower in the corner. So its flying away from it in a way.

Stamped the Sketched Sentiment. I love making it say whatever you want! I used a image from Designer Dots set to make little sun. Its all in the details! LOL!

Hope you like it!

Next we have another paisley butterfly. BECAUSE I LOVE IT!

tagged thank you

As I said I am in a SUMMER mood. This ribbon is delicious! I love ribbon. It can totally inspire all kinds of cool color combos. It was also close to the colors above! So I went with it for my inspiration.

I just stamped the images in the bottom left corner. Wasnt sure if I would cut it out or what, but decided to leave it. Colored with my prismacolor markers. AGAIN used Onare template for another Flutter trail (love it!). I decided to keep it simple-andcuttlebugged my top layer. I tied the ribbon around, but “something” was missing.

SOOOOO, I used a Sizzix tag die (need to use those MORE). Stamped it then attached it like this.

I was quite pleased with it.

Well thats all for today!

Stay tuned tomorrow! I was asked to do a coloring tutorial with Versamagic ink pads, and the Fantasix wands. Its like my favorite way of coloring these days as I keep building my collection of those inks.

I have it all set to go! So check back.

Also please let me know what else you want me to share! I love hearing what you all want to see.

AND last but not least. If you have bought any Lizzie Anne sets, Green Grass, or My Favorite Things Id LOVE to see them! So send me a link!
