Thanks to a Dear Friend

Hi there and Welcome to today's post for
It's our Trend Week and Hosting is Nancy choosing

I got a lovely stamp set from my bff
and of course the big bold 'thanks' sentiment 
was perfect for this weeks challenge and also
a nice way to say Thank You to her.
The beautiful floral image I coloured is from
I heat embossed it with WOW Metallic Platinum.
Since my colouring skills are very limited
I got out some Twinklin' H2O's and metallic paints.
I cut this with a stitched die then attached 3 gems
and adhered to SU Tip Top Taupe cs.

Don't forget to pop over and see what our Guest Eva
and the Talented Team created. Join us in our Gallery
and you could be a future Guest Designer.
Thanks for popping in. Love reading your kind comments!

I'm Thinking of You

Hi there!  It's time for our CUTplorations Challenge
as part of the monthly challenges at STAMPlorations
image source: Ellen Giggenbach

and here is how I was inspired.
I tried to gather as much as I could from the photo
starting with blue card stock and adding white texture with the
ARTplorations Fairy Tale Forest Stencil also adding it to
my kraft card base using Gloss Gel Medium.
After the white texture paste dried I smooched over it with
Tim's Oxide Faded Jeans.
I then cut out the side piece with 
CUTplorations Pierced Curly Frames
for my owl (given to me by a friend)
I then cut out the leaves and flowers from
CUTplorations Trendy Spring Blooms Dies
in appropriate colours. I attached them and
added some Liquid Pearls to the centres.
Finished with my CUTplorations Thinking of You Die

Thanks so much for dropping in.
Hope to see your project in our Gallery this month.
