Flower Gardens

Hey there!
Happy Monday!
I am sharing a layout I created using Sketchabilities sketch #144 and the August challenge at Creative Embellishments. I had a blast mixing these 2 challenges!
I used Amy Tan's Plus One along with some stamps, Gelatos, and Creative Embellishments chippies for this fun page:

Here are some close ups:
Here I used one of Creative Embellishments frames and added some Gesso and inks:

The word "flower" I cut using my Cameo and then colored it with Gelatos and water.
I used some Thickers for the word "gardens" and stitched in place:
I used the chicken wire chipboard border and heat embossed it with silver to match the fence in my photos:
I stamped the fairy, colored it with Gelatos and fussy cut it. I also added some washi tapes:
The flowers were fussy cut from patterned paper and colored with Gelatos:

I stamped the mushrooms, colored with Gelatos and fussy cut them as well. The leaves were cut on my Cameo:

Here is the fun sketch:
and the photo I used for inspiration at Creative Embellishments:
I used the colors, fairy, flowers and mushrooms for inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your day with me!

Birthday Party!

There's a new challenge up at Cards In Envy today- Birthday Party. The challenge is to create a birthday card. Easy peasy!
I used an old Echo Park mini collection- Birthday Boy to create my card for this challenge:

I took white cardstock and added a green Gelato in the center and a turquoise one along the outside and then took my finger dipped in water and bended them together to create my background. The stars were made by adding washi tape to cardstock and then punching them. I topped it off with a few ink spatters.
Enjoy your day!

Hey there scrappy friends!

Here's what I used:

A- Amy Tangerine frame, alphas, acetate tag &arrows
P- pink, pineapple & paint
E- Evalicious wood veneer & epoxy stickers

Here is my page using Pink Paislee Citrus Bliss along with some stuff from my stash:

I love adding watercolor to my background.
Here are some close ups:

                             That frame is from Amy Tangerine. I added a bit of stitching to it and also
                                                                  the black title letters:

I added a few rub-ons- the arrow and "magical" ones are from BoBunny:

Check out the wood veneer "Life Is Sweet"- that's from Evalicious and my new found love! LOL!
I colored it with pink and green Gelatos. The "summer" is also from my rub-on stash:

Wonderful Wednesday!

Hey there!
Today I am sharing a few things I made for some Birthday Bash challenges at Turtle Soup.
I used Fancy pants Timbergrove for this Christmas card:

                  I added some rub-ons to the teal cardstock to give it a bit more pizzazz. I also added some Stickles to the snowflake and of coarse, I can't create without stitching:)

The second thing I created was a gift bag. I took a kraft gift bag I had lying around and added some papers and embellies to it. I used Fancy Pants Saint Nick and came up with this cute bag:

Have a fabulous day!
