When the Altenew Inspiration Challenge for this month came out, I sat down and colored this flower. I loved the effect I was able to get with it but, I was really stumped on how to take this card even further. That was until I got the Bed of Roses Stamp Set in the mail recently from a recent clearance sale! I thought of the My Favorite Things current sketch challenge and got to work!

I took light pink and lime green cardstock and clear embossed the garden roses with an ultra fine embossing powder. I then took Altenew Rouge Crisp Ink Dye to the pink paper and ink blended it on. Then, I repeated the process on the lime green cardstock with Frayed Leaf. I then used a die cut to cut strips out. I alternated them and glued them onto the card. I stamped take care on white, added a flair to the end, and added a layer behind it. To make the flower really stand out, I glued 4 layers to the back of it.

Butterfly thinking of You CAS card

Hi y’all! I’m back with a guest designer for my favorite challenge, Color Hues! I won their Chocolate and Mint challenge. So, I get to join them for this one! Brown and Yellow. I’ll be honest, I did struggle a bit with creating something unique for this challenge. I don’t really have much brown or yellow in my day-to-day life. After hours going into trying different versions, I came up with a CAS design. I would’ve saved a lot of time if I knew that in the beginning! Lol.

I haven’t touched my foil machine in quite some time. I decided to put it to use with some butterflies from Spellbinders. I found a copper foil in my stash and knew that it’s what I wanted to use with it. I feel like it’s brown tinted with a little bit of yellow. I colored in yellow in the wings with a detailing brush and yellow ink. To give it more depth with the brown, I used distress ink and pops of color. I sprayed the brown ink with a little bit of water and mixed it with the clear glitter pop. It allowed for the brown to have a little bit of dimension on the butterfly.

I wanted the butterfly to have more dimension. Therefore, I sprayed glimmer spray on a piece of brown construction paper and used an embossing mat to emboss the butterflies onto the paper. I then die cut it out which helped flatten it out. I stamped the thinking of you sentiment in yellow on a white cardstock. I glued the embossed brown paper butterfly to the right bottom corner facing the I turned the edges of the foiled and colored butterfly upward and glued the center of the butterfly down to the brown paper butterfly.

How would you do a brown and yellow card?? I’d love for you to join along in the challenge! Thanks for reading!

After I saw the new livestream deal from, I knew that I needed to put these pocket heart dies to use!

I decided that the heart could easily hide an interactive card element. I decided to use some watercolor paper that I had previously painted and die cut it with spring florals! I cut a piece of a laminated sheet (you could use acetate also) and added the butterfly and leaves to it. I then stamped ‘miss you’ sentiment from Hero Arts, die cut it, and adhered it below. I then stamped ‘pull here’ and die cut a circle around the sentiment. I die cut an additional circle and adhered them to the top of the laminate. I made a slit midway down the paper to allow for the element to move. I glued the heart on to cover it up and there you have it! A fun interactive card. What would you do with a pocket die cut?!

Hey y’all! I’m here with my first watercolor card for Happy Little Stampers: Watercolour Challenge!

For this card I hand stamped a popsicle repeatedly in a water safe ink. Then, I used mini cube inks on glass media mat, sprayed it with water, and then applied to the paper with a paint brush. This is such a fun technique for watercolor! Make sure to check out the new challenge! Let me know in the comments so I can visit your creation. Happy Crafting Y’all!
