A 'Blooming' Birthday

Hello and Welcome. Thanks for dropping in.
Today's post is for our Photo Challenge at
Just Us Girls and Hosting this week is
our Lovely Lisa.
Here's  my take on this gorgeous photo below.
Isn't it glorious! 
No doubt a lot of you will see this
and think of  'Spring' and look forward to it soon.

I chose my card base from SU  Concord Crush
but nearly went for something lighter till I decided
to add some tiny flowers with this and Hello Honey 
contrasting it to my larger flowers from 
SU Petite Petals. I love that stamp/punch set
making it easy to make a floral spray.
These were inked with SU Yo Yo Yellow
and Memento Sweet Plum.
Added some background grunge from 
SU Timeless Textures and s strip of
gold washi tape. 
Sentiment is by STAMPlorations Fluttery
and thought it perfect for all my blooms.
I matted them with SU Concord Crush
and added Liquid Pearls and Nuvo Drops
 to the centres to finish.

Pop over to Our Blog and check what
Tenia and the Team created.
I know I have said it before but...
you won't be disappointed.
It has been an amazing month having
you as our Guest Tenia and loved checking out
your talent more regularly. Thanks You.
I know we will see you back again in our Gallery soon.

It's all about 'DIES' at AAA Cards.

Hello and Welcome to today's post.
STAMPlorations are sponsoring the
so I decided to get out a few of my dies
and here is what I made - and it has to also be CAS.

I have used these dies from STAMPlorations - 
and the Hello Die.
I used metallic card stock to back the cut out
and the popped butterfly. It need a little colour 
so randomly sponged with Nuvo Burnished Bronze Mousse
on both butterfly and sentiment.
Finished with a few pearls.


Thanks for dropping in today.
Love reading your kind comments.

Canvasing 'Happy Thoughts'

Hi there and Welcome!
Today's post is for the current challenge
of Felt/Cork or Canvas etc over at CAS Mix Up Blog
All the details are Here
You will have seen my first entry using cork.
This time I thought I would play with canvas.
It really is a fun paper and gives a great
texture look to your project.
I started by spritzing some Turquoise Brusho's
onto my canvas then decided to add a bit of texture
with Mont Marte Pearl White Acrylic Paint
then some White DecoArt Crackle Paste - 
I should have added more but was just an experiment.
I left it overnight and was happy with the result so continued
by cutting out 2 Spellbinder Butterflies in canvas.
 Attached them to my background and adhered to white card for stability.
Mixed up a little more of what I used for the background,
covering both cutouts and attached an oval gem.
Added some splatters and finished with my sentiment
from STAMPlorations Bloom Happy in Oxide Salty Ocean.
To blend with my pearly background I chose some
Pearlescent Textured card stock.
Here is a close up of the shimmer/texture - 
My Mix is Canvas, Stamping, Die Cutting, Mixed Media.

Thanks for dropping in today
