Two Paper Divas~ CAS Purple Simplicity

Good Morning everyone, I'm back to share with you a lil' Card I made for Two Paper Divas


using the new ENJOY THE LITTLE THINGS set from October's New Releases. I just LOVE this sentiment and know I'll be using it quite a bit because It's all about the little things right? ;o)
I went with different shades of Purple (Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord and Seedless Preserves) Distress Inks in order to participate in the THE HOP TO STOP 2016. October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and this hop is designed to raise awareness about domestic violence, an issue that impacts 1 in 3 women, and the resources that are available to assist victims of domestic violence. So come play along and just remember to use Purple somewhere on your make. :o)

I used the shaded Lilac and Dusty Concord for my background and then went over a Dylusions Circles stencil with Seedless Preserves in random areas. A little purple washi tape was used to help position the focal point.  



sentiment in StazOn Gothic Purple on a circle die cut and matted it onto black and adhered it using foam tape for added dimension. A little Spellbinders Feather Die cut with purple twine finished it all off. I matted it all onto black CS and then a 4.25' x 5.5' purple base card. 
 Thank you for stoppin' by and be sure to join me next week to see another fun make using October's NEW RELEASES!!

Two Paper Divas~ Enjoy the Little Things

Good Morning everyone, I'm back to share with you a lil' Card I made for Two Paper Divas! My apologies for my absence last week, but I'm still fending off this viral infection and as it's now week 4, it's clearly winning! Lol!

But here's my top-folding card using the new FERN and ENJOY THE LITTLE THINGS sets from October's New Releases. I fell in LURVE with this set as soon as I saw it as I knew it could be used for many occasions and using different techniques.



I created a sunset using Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, Carved Pumpkin, Candied Apple and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks. A torn piece of paper created my "hillside" which I then colored in with a black Sharpie pen. I then stamped the FERN images using Black StazOn and my MISTI. I finished by coloring in the butterflies with a black Sharpie for a silhouette look and then stamped a portion of the Enjoy the Little Things Sentiment, also in Black StazOn Ink.



and of course here's the inside:

STAMPlorations~ Sunday Stencil~ INSPIRE

Good morning crafty peeps! It's that time again...

http://stamplorations.blogspot.com/2016/08/stencil-sunday-august-7.html
A new challenge starts today at STAMPlorations!! Woohoo! 


The theme is always anything mixed media goes except a card! Just remember you must use at least one stencil (any brand) in your project. You have until the end of the month to play! 



So this month I played with STAMPlorations
Art Marks and ARTplorations Happy Flowers along with some Brushos pigment powders. 




I started by sprinkling some Brushos onto watercolor paper I die cut into a tag.  I sprinkled on Gamboge and Brilliant Red until I achieved the color I was going for, and then let it air dry. Once dry, I used the Happy Flowers stencil and used Ranger texture paste and let that dry completely. I placed the stencil back on and sprayed with Post Box Red Dylusions Spray so I could get the vibrant red color. I then stamped the circles and paint splatters in red and orange Memento Inks onto my background.   I doodled a white border around the tag and stamped the INSPIRE sentiment with Black Archival Ink using my MISTI. I then decided to trace my stenciled flowers with a Black Sharpie Marker and use the SN Sparkle Pen in Clear to make them stand out a bit more with a bit of shimmer. I then adhered it to a black tag base and finished with some seam binding that I dyed with the Brilliant Red Brushos. 


  
I sure hope I've inspired you to get crafty today and play along with us this month! :o)
