You Make Life Colorful

Hi Crafty Friends,
I was inspired by Time Out Challenge #261 Inspired by Words "I'm a romantic! I live for long, dreamy walks down the craft aisle". I made mini slimlines featuring colored pencils and crayons from Honey Bee Stamps Brilliant Day Stamp Set with romantic sentiments to cover both sentences of the quote. I used Nuvo Drops to create the rainbow little dots coming up from the pencils and crayons.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Which do you like to color with more colored pencils or crayons?
A: Me? Colored Pencils

Card #1: You Add Color to My World


Card #2: You Make Life Colorful



Supplies:
Honey Bee Stamps Brilliant Day Stamp Set
My Favorite Things Mini Slimline Double Stitched Rectangle Die-namics
Nuvo Drops (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Teal, Purple, Pink)


Roses are Red, Violets are Blue...

Hi Crafty Friends,
I was inspired by Time Out Challenge #261 Inspired by Words "I'm a romantic! I live for long, dreamy walks down the craft aisle". I used this darling stamp set from Stamping Bella featuring two besties with one holding a handmade card from the other. Then I used this funny romantic friendship sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Besties Stamp set. This card highlights both sentences in the quote!

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Beside the craft aisle where do you like to walk?
A: Me? Anywhere with my puppy

Sunrise Butterflies

Hi Crafty Friends,
Spring is on it's way and hopefully that means beautiful butterflies everywhere (however, since I'm in the Midwest it's probably going to be more cicadas than butterflies BOO!). This orange delight features Poppy Stamps Nordic Fanfare Butterfly and Nordic Lacey Plate.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Are you getting the 17 year or 13 year cicadas this year?
A: Me? YES! We are supposed to be where they overlap so TRILLIONS

 Final_1 (3)I started my card by by putting together the butterflies. I layered three different shades of orange from the Sunrise 6x6 Paper Pad for the main Nordic Fanfare Butterfly and then two layers for the small butterflies.  Next, I mounted the Nordic Lacey Plate on a light shade of orange and framed it on glitter paper from the Poppy Stamps Majestic Hues 6x6 Paper Pad. Finally, I add the Thinking of You Banner Sentiment from the Sentimental Banners Stamp & Die Set.
