All that we LOVE

Today I am sharing an embossed feather card.

Front sentiment:  All that we love deeply becomes a part of us. - Helen Keller

This one is heat embossed on vellum and set against a cream chevron background. I love how large the feather is and the whimsical designs in it.  And, one of my favorite parts of this card is the quote.  I included the soft colors of white, cream and a purple hues.

I am sharing this in Unity's {be inspired} Sketch Challenge 18 and Friends With Flair.

Supplies:  Unity Stamp Co. July 2014 KOTM Beautiful Inside and Out, December 2012 KOTM Everyday Fairytale. Lil' Inker Designs cover up pieced chevrons die, Spellbinders die, vellum, embossing powder, rhinestones and glue pen.

Happy Summer Time!!!!

Summer Butterfly

This is filled with a rainbow of the colors of summer.  I really love this great big butterfly with the tiny "dream" words in it.  
So, I made an uplifting card around it for the Unity Color Challenge 18 July/Aug 2014 and also Friends With Flair this week.

Front Sentiment:  Do you know how great you are?

This has lots of bright summer colors: purple, orange, yellow, green and blue.  
The butterfly was colored onto the red rubber directly with distress markers, given a couple of huffs then stamped.  She turned out better than I expected.

Supplies:  Lil' Inker Designs stitched diagonal die, Unity KOTM May 2013 Totally & Utterly Amazing, Feb 2014 Grow into Spring, June 2014 In love with love (inside).

Have a lovely day.

Birthday Pretty

It's my daughter's birthday, so made this card for her big day, her 20th.  I'm so proud of her and love her dearly.

Front sentiment:  Happy birthday pretty lady.

Inside sentiment:  May all your wishes come true.

This is watercolor using distress markers, water and water brushes.  I adore this image and couldn't wait to get crafty with it.  I stamped and colored a few of these while the inky tools were out.  This is also with Unity's Friends With Flair projects today.

Supplies:  Unity Stamp Co. stamps from the Sabrina Fashionista set, My Creative Time die.

Hope you are enjoying the summer.  I know I am. :)
