Tiny Flowers on Twigs

I've had this idea in my head for a long, long time ... to make an arrangement using twigs and adding flowers or butterflies to  them.  Today's the day I'll share how my project turned out.  I have it on my desk with a little arrangement of Whole Lot of Lovely DSP coordinated home decor items.  It's good to have a happy place in which to do your work. 

To attach the tiny flowers to my twigs, I made them double-sided, with the twig sandwiched in between the two flowers.

Whole Lot of Lovely Card Trio

Today's post shares 3 of my favorite cards made with the wonderful Whole Lot of Lovely DSP.  This paper is just gorgeous.  Enjoy!
For the first card, I tinted my Embossing Paste with Peekaboo Peach Reinker and then stenciled it over just a part of the background.  This is a super easy way to add some great texture to your cards.





See what I mean?  This gorgeous DSP lends itself to beautiful and elegant cards and projects.  I didn't have room in the limited space for the 'labels' in my post to share which ribbons I used. 
They were:
- Stitched Satin ribbon --- Basic Black
- Finely Woven Ribbon --- Tranquil Tide
- Crinkled Seam Binding --- Peekaboo Peach

Smooshing and Embossing Paste Card ,,, AND ... a Special Birthday Today!

I love creating original, one-of-a-kind backgrounds.  My three favorite methods are using Brusho (Pigmented Watercolor Crystals), using watercolors (or reinkers as watercolors) and smooshingSmooshing (I may have made up this word:) is done using several colors of ink, directly from the ink pad and lightly sponging on the inks, one at a time, to create a random design of colors.  For this card, I chose shades of blue, green and purple. 
Once I've finish the smooshing, I like to spritz the CS a bit, to add a super cool look to the background.  I use either Shimmery White CS or watercolor paper, depending on how much water I plan to add to my project.   
Once I was happy with my completed background, I let it dry and then added a bit of stenciling, using embossing paste, to create a brick effect.  I love how this one turned out.  This card is a perfect example of making it up as I go along --- my favorite kind of art. 
I added a layer of Basic Black CS behind my beautiful art piece.  This helps to make it really stand out.  I kept the card base white, to tie it all together.
I absolutely love this card.  I'd also love it if you left me a comment and let me know what you think about this card.
Before I go, I want to give a big birthday wish to my sweet little Joey.  He is a big TWO years old today and gives me such joy.

Time to Catch up a Bit!

In working on Fall and Christmas projects, I finally realized that I hadn't shared the rest of my last Open House Party.  Yikes!  Let's jump right in and then we can move back to Fall and Christmas.   In the world of stamping, this is a crazy time of year, anyway ... moving back and forth between all-occasion projects to Fall, to Halloween, to Christmas ... I guess this post fits in after all.
