Floral Butterfly Card for Word Art Wednesday Guest Design

Hello friends.  Today, I'm guest designing again for the Word Art Wednesday challenge blog.  I'm using a digital image from one of today's sponsors, Imagine That Digi Stamps, featuring the Queen Anne's Lace digital stamp.  It includes 9 sentiments with the set, however, I chose to pair my colored image with the free printable scripture this week, offered up by Word Art Wednesday.

(FTC Disclosure: as an affiliate for various companies in the craft industry, I will receive a small commission for purchases made through my convenient affiliate links.  This does not affect your purchase price.)




This scripture is so timely and it brought to mind a close relative dealing with breast cancer.  Cancer doesn't discriminate and neither does our loving Father God.  Even though sin is in this world, God is still molding us and guiding the way in our lives.  Despite sickness and the evils of this world, we are in His hands.  We may not understand why we go through the troubled times in our lives but for those who trust in Christ, we have the assurance that He is always with us.




For the creative details on my card, I printed both images onto mixed media paper, so I could add colored water splatters later.  It's hard to achieve splatters on regular cardstock, as it will typically bleed.  I always let my splatters dry naturally as I like the effect.





I used a variety of Zig Real Clean Color brush markers to color, using a water brush at times and mixing colors.  I also embellished my flowers, leaves and butterfly with gel pens.  My papers are from American Crafts Dear Lizzy collection, ribbons from May Arts Ribbon and buttons and pearls from the Macaron Bottle Embellishments from Buttons Galore and 28 Lilac Lane.  All my adhesives are from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.  You'll find links to the products below from Scrapbook.com.

(Please note, I've challenged myself to use up some of my older scrapbook paper collections.  The paper I've used today is from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic line and is no longer available.  However, there is a very similar paper with the exact colors that I've used in the Lovely Day collection in the product links below.)




Lastly, I decided to make a coordinating envelope with my We R Memory Keepers 123 Punch Board.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I've enjoyed guest designing this month and want to thank Word Art Wednesday once again for having me.  Be sure and link up a new creation to the current Anything Goes challenge to be entered to win prizes!  Terri

Happy News! Joining the Paper House Productions Design Team!

I am ecstatic to announce that I'm joining the Paper House Productions Design Team in July!  You won't believe this, but it was literally a goal of mine to join a scrapbook paper design team this year.  Paper is my first love.  That's where it all started for me, all those years ago when my friend Nancy Hilton took me to my first crop (look Nancy, you got a shout out!).  Ah, the joys of taking scissors to paper.  Before I knew it, I fell in love with cardmaking and paper continued to reign in my life.   I became an avid stamper and joined several stamp design teams, however, paper was always there; a staple in almost every project. 





Paper House Productions stood out in my mind for another reason.  I'm pretty sure I met them back in 2014 when I was the guest blogger for the CHA/AFCI Paper Arts Trade show in Atlanta.  I did a little digging and yes.... I did meet them!  In fact, I wrote a segment all about the lovely folks at PHP on the Craft and Hobby Association blog.  Take a look!  


I have a love affair with paper and am so happy that Paper House Productions chose me to represent their wonderful array of products.  They have selected a stellar team and I'm even more excited that I already know several of the ladies, having worked with them on other design teams.  It already feels like a family atmosphere which is like the icing on the cake!


I thought I would share a couple projects that I made not too long ago, using Paper House Productions papers.  Here's my milk carton treat box, filled with k-cups for a project I did last year for Coffee Loving Cardmakers.




And this one below, more recently, was for a joint blog hop with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.




Their product line is EXTENSIVE!  They have license to the Wizard of Oz line.  Um, my baby shower was Wizard of Oz themed.  My little niece dressed up like Dorothy and my nephews dressed like the Lollipop Guild.  My sister gave me a huge piece of Wall Art that was Wizard of Oz and drove 2 hours to Atlanta to meet one of the original munchkins who was on tour and doing a book signing.  I believe he was the Mayor of Munchkin Land.  He autographed the art and my sister had it framed.  It is one of my most prized possessions.  I'm a huge Wizard of Oz fan!  It feels a little bit like destiny to have the joy of creating with their products on a regular basis.  

Hop on over to their website and check out their products, here.  Then visit their blog and get ready for the internet to blow up with more design team inspiration!  Woo-hoo!  See you soon with my first official project!

Hummingbird Card And Blog Hop

Today's project is a collaboration with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Hero Arts.  Both design teams have come together to create for this one day event.  And, there are prizes from both companies!  Woo-hoo!  Be sure you visit both company blogs to enter.  The theme for this event is seasonal (summer, graduation, 4th of July, etc.) or general (birthday, thank you, friendship, etc.).  I'm going with summer and creating this pretty hummingbird card featuring the Hero Arts Hummingbird stamps and dies.  Plus, I've got a one minute technique video, showing you how to color glue, so stick around for a few minutes!





(FTC Disclosure: as an affiliate for various companies in the craft industry, I will receive a small commission for purchases made through my convenient affiliate links.  This does not affect your purchase price.)





First, let me share some creative details.   To begin, I trimmed a piece of watercolor paper and used a masking technique to stamp a flower border with the blooms included in the Hero Arts Hummingbird stamp set.  I've used the Hero Arts Intense Black Ink Pad for all my base stamping, along with my Misti stamp positioner.   Next, I stamped and die cut my hummingbird with the Hero Arts Hummingbird Frame Cuts dies.  All my coloring was done using watercolors by swiping my Zig brush markers onto a craft mat and using a water brush.  This allowed me to mix and blend colors for my hummingbird and flowers.  You'll find a full list of product links at the end of this post.





I love getting super creative so I decided to try and color my glue and make faux paint splatters.  I've got a 1 minute video below that shows you how to do that.  So easy!







For the center of my flower blooms, I wanted some dimension, so I dotted glue from my Scrapbook Adhesives dual tip glue pen, then sprinkled some of my Hero Arts white embossing powder.  I did this in batches, to prevent my glue from drying too quickly before I finished all the blossoms.  My beautiful scene and coordinating coral cardstock are adhered using my E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.  The 3D Foam Squares White Mix help to pop up my hummingbird and give dimension.
