New Discovery

Good morning!  Sun is shinning and mild temps for February so I will take it! I played with some new products I got over the weekend.  I discovered Nuvo Drops!  Now I know they have been around for some time but this is the first time I have used them and I love the results!

I used Nuvo Honey Gold Glitter Drops on this card.  The background was Mod Squared Stencil from Catherine Pooler's Perfect Reason Collection and inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  The leaves are from that collection as well.  Flower is SU Botanical Blooms and the verse is from Verve's Be Blessed.  All paper is Close to My Heart.

This card is a mix of stamps and dies from Catherine Pooler SOA collection and the paper and Hearts  are Close to My Heart.

Happy Paper Hug

January has been a blur due to family health issues.  My mother ended with pneumonia and was in ICU for part of the month.  Crafting has gone by the wayside but I took some time today to create a card for Color My Heart Dare #229!  So I am sending all of you a Paper Hug!

I used Peppermint Stick background stamp by Catherine Pooler to create the plaid background with Pansy and Raspberry inks.  The girl and sentiment are from True Love Operation Smile D1711.  I heat embossed the sentiment with Silver.  I am loving those colors together!
