CARD: Forever Lovely

Good morning!  Here's a card we made for my January Stamp Club!  (Yes, I'm a bit behind in posting!)  It's a simple card using the Forever Lovely Stamp Set.  I did inspiration for this card from somewhere, but can't find the original right now.  


I simply stamped the hearts image twice in Lovely Lipstick, then stmap the words in Black Memento Ink.  I added the fun Heart Epoxy Droplets -- these are so much fun to use!!

Sweet and Simple!!  I think I'll give this to my wonderful husband tomorrow!!

Have a GREAT day!

CARD: Beautiful Day

For a recent workshop, the hostess requested using Brusho Crystal Colors!  I hadn't used them in awhile, and I'm not sure why!!  They are so fun and easy to use -- and wow!  What great color they add to your cards!  Here's one we made:


We embossed the butterfly from the Beautiful Day stamp set with Clear Embossing powder.  This is all done on watercolor paper.  Then, "color" over with water, using your aquapainter.  Don't be afraid to add water--it needs to be wet!  Then sprinkle on the blue-- you can use your aqua painter to spread it out to get the coverage you want.  Then, I sprinkled just a bit of the yellow -- see the dots?  Set aside to dry!

I enjoyed using these so much, I created a class to share them with you!!
