One Third Thank You

CFC131: Three Thirds? The idea is to use three of something, could be colors, sequins, etc
on just 1/3 of the card, and keep it clean and simple. 

Here are my three purple posies, background script and sentiment on one third of the card.

Today's card is for  CASology week 92 Garden  and 
The  Ways to Use it Challenge at Splitcoaststampers 
is about Arbor Day (Friday, April 25, 2014)
Dogwood is my favorite. What's yours?

I've used Susan Tierney Cockburn's Sizzix Thinlits Dogwood flower dies with a white shimmer paper. The branch is die cut using a Momenta die and the embossed 1/2 background is a Lifestyle Crafts folder. Distress markers colored the tips and  the sentiment.

Happy Mother's Day

  Mojo Monday 341  

I've  used VERVE'S "Because of You" sentiment and "Feel the Sun" sets so much because of the versatility. I stamped many flowers onto watercolor paper and heat embossed with white powder. I colored with distress inks and PITT artist pens and an aqua brush.
 I then fussy cut two to pop one layer up.

Simply Preppy

I love this simple yet lovely sketch by Jen. I'm going for Clean with layers especially in the 3D flower. This is my preppy card for summer. The flowers are die cut with Momenta cherry blossom die and tini gold beads are added to center.

SO egg-cited!

It is indeed a super fun sketch Julee has created this week. I have a small order of Easter cards to make for a friend and today's sketch is helping me to get going. I'm using Verve's "Egg-stra Special" set of 17. I stamped and fussy cut the chick (yellow cs)  and the (green cs) egg.

Blue Birthday Wishes

I wanted so much to do splatter with this wonderful sketch but my work space is so crowded (with new purchases). So my next choice was to match the splotches with stamped twice and die-cut roses and leaves. They are blue (Hero Arts stone wash) because some were leftover from another project. I used all WPlus products. 
The sparkle is Starform transparent glitter stickers.

Butterfly Kisses

The butterfly for today's challenge is so exquisitely beautiful! I wanted to, at least, use the colors. Saying hello is what butterflies do best in my opinion. I've used a butterfly from the Sizzix/Hampton Art stamp and die-cut set #659037 and copic markers. The sentiment is Hero Arts.

My former tennis team is called Cosmos Girls so of course my birthday cards to teammates would be a birthday-tini! I used Impression Obsession "Birthday Martini" wood mount stamp with a little copic coloring and Art Impressions sentiment.
