For Prince

Tuesday, April 26, 2016

Hello friends. I did not expect the unexpected loss of Prince to affect me as much as it did. For me his music takes me back to my awkward teenage years. Everyone was trying to figure out who they were, what their style was, what they were good at. All of the sudden, here comes this guy wearing crazy clothes and making awkward look cool.  I loved the movie Purple Rain. A hot guy who could sing, a love story and a crazy villain named Morris...yeah that movie was a lot of fun.

So since I am still mourning the loss of Prince, this week's take on the My Favorite things is inspired by the Purple one.

Here's a look at this week's sketch.

Here's my card.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hello friends. Here I am squeezing my card in just before deadline again. For this week's sketch I was inspired by the color purple again. I'm also still having fun with my distress inks and water color pen. Here's a look at this week's sketch.

For this week's card I used the Build-able bouquet and the friends die-cut. I watercolored the die using Ranger Distress ink in shaded lilac and then frosted the top with glitter.

I also created a second take on the sketch. To be honest, this was my first card and I just wasn't super pleased with it.

Have a creative day!


MFT New Releases

Thursday, April 14, 2016

Hello friends! I had a bit of Insomnia this week and spent some time in my studio creating with my new MFT releases. 

Here's a couple of cards I made with the new Hello There dies.

For my colors, I chose to use Ranger's Distress Inks in Spiced Marmalade and Cracked Pistachio. I love this color combo. I also used the English Brick Wall stencil.

I added some glossy accents to the Hello die because I love the finished look.

Now here's the same die another way.

For this card I used some cool silver paper I picked up at Daiso. It comes in gold too! I was feeling silver with the teal that I water colored onto the MFT Dainty Scallop die coverup.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Have a creative day!


Finally creating for fun again!

Hello friends. My blog has been so neglected! It's been a busy few weeks for me with Lily and I traveling for Spring Break back to Arkansas to see my parents. 
So I had some time this evening to create with my new release items that arrived Friday for this week's My Favorite Things sketch.

Here's a look at this week's sketch.

Here's my card.
