Color My Heart Color Dare #331

Not too often that I use shades of brown to create a card but I really like the way this turned out.  I teach a card making class once a month at the library here in town and my focus this month is using Perfect Pearls.  I wanted to have them use the Perfect Pearls on a stamped image and on a second card lightly rub Versa Mark on an embossed image.  Enter Cut and Emboss in One Pass, Rose Flourish folder from Spellbinders and a card was created
                                        Rose Flourish Cut and Emboss Folder

The border was made with a retired set of border dies from Close To My Heart.  Class is tonight and I hope they enjoy working with Perfect Pearls.  Thank you Color My Heart #331!

You are Awesome

Today's card is from the All About Layering class with Altenew that I just finished.  This uses the stamp set Painted Butterflies.  I love the whimsical look of the butterflies.

The background has some ink blending and the butterflies has some clear shimmer brush to make them shine!  Of course a few gems add shine too!  I am more than ready to see butterflies flying again.  I guess I will have to wait a few more months!  I hope your day is awesome!

To Quilt or not to Quilt

How many enjoy quilting?  My grandmother loved to quilt as well as crochet bedspreads.  I treasure the ones that I have but quilting or crocheting is not my thing.  However, quilting with paper is a different story.  Close To My Heart introduced Stitched Quilt Shapes.  They are currently sold out but will return in late March.  In the meantime I will create cards and be ready for late March, when they are ready for order again.

Who would have thought that quilting would be so popular?  

Thanks for stopping by and Enjoy Life's Moments today!

Flowers and Butterflies...Thinking Spring

This week I am entering the Atlantic Heart Sketches #302 and combined it with the Double Trouble Challenge #21.

I used a flower from Feels Like Home Watercolor Dies
Colored with Arteza Brush Pens and added a butterfly from the 
Butterfly Friendship Stamp and Thin Cuts.  I heat embossed the sentiment with White Embossing Powder
