Gloriously 60 Day 45 Art – Sweet Summer

Hi Angels!

Tonight’s class was the final installment of our 12 x 12 Seasons Samplers – Sweet Summer. I had so much fun designing this.

I started off with another idea with the Lawn Fawn Magic Iris Birdhouse Add-On & while looking for some other dies came across the Elizabeth Craft Designs Lake Scene Die set. The other dies are older Spellbinders sets & the sentiments are also Elizabeth Craft Designs. What says summer better than days at the lake, birds singing & a gazebo to hang out with the family.

All the pieces feature ink blending with Distress Oxides. The main pieces include Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, Wilted Violet & Seedless Preserve. The accent pieces have Fossilized Amber, Abandoned Coral & Seedless Preserves.

I have a quiet week ahead so that means more studio time, Yay!

Gloriously 60 Day 44 – Birdhouse Hello

Hi Angels!

I hope you have had a wonderful weekend!

I am putting the finishing touches on tomorrow’s class and grabbed what I had on my worktop to make tonight’s card.

This card definitely has a mixed media feel with the watercolor mop up piece I used for the birdhouse & bird plus the reverse print of the polka dot stencil background I used to create the main polka dot pattern. I used Lawn Fawn’s Magic Iris Birdhouse Add-on to create this card.

Have a Fabulous Week!

Gloriously 60 Day 43 Art – Sweet Flowers

Hi Angels!

I hope you are enjoying this beautiful weekend! We had lovely sunshine after a quick storm rolled through in the wee hours of the morning.

Today’s card features some leftovers from my desk before they reached the infamous Bits & Pieces box.

I’m in the process of cleaning up my worktops so it made sense to create some from the bits of recent cards & a scrap from the patterned paper file.

This card is sweet & simple & will make someone smile. The best kind of card to make.

Gloriously 60 Day 42 Art – Adventure

Hi Angels!

It’s been a long but fun day as I had the granddaughters today. So I dove into the infamous Bits & Pieces box & the scraps for tonight’s card.

This neutral design is great for the guys. The train was leftover from a class last year using Whimsy Stamps Enjoy the Journey set & the sentiment if from Unity Stamp Co Scout Adventure set.

Off to get some rest.

Have a Fabulous Saturday!

Gloriously 60 Day 41 Art – Soar

Hi Angels!

I am not so tired today, did a bit of a reset of my plans since it’s mid-year, tidied up the studio some and will work on getting my schedule back in shape. Sometimes you just need a little bit of reflection time.

Today’s card is also made with scraps but unlike last night’s ‘eh’ this one is ‘wow’.

I popped into HL yesterday to pick up a couple of things for the granddaughters & did pop by the paper craft section which they were doing a complete redo on. I’ve got a couple of ideas I’ve been mulling around & decided to pick up the bird & branch set from Momenta. Sorry they just have a number no name. The sentiment is from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Some rest & a fresh perspective definitely make a difference.

Have a Fabulous Weekend!

Gloriously 60 Day 39 Art – Nice

Hi Angels!

I was prepping my materials for an online class I am taking tomorrow & the time got away from me.

Nice should always be an option in our lives, goes hand & hand with kindness.

Another card using the Paige Evans Wonders Collection from my April SCT Kit. The bargain of these kits are wonderful. I can easily create about 10 cards or more with the papers this one included & I haven’t even tried the stamp set yet. I am very glad I subscribed.

Do you subscribe to any creative kits? What do you like most about them?

Gloriously 60 Day 38 Art- Floral Hello

Hi Angels!

I ran a few errands today so since my SCT April Sampler is still out, I grabbed it for another quick card.

I just loved this floral pattern paper & the idea popped for just the right creation with the paint stroke type pattern that was in the set. A few sequins & a pretty card is all done. These papers are more from the Paige Evans Wonders Collection.

Looking forward to being home tomorrow & getting some tidying done in the studio then creating some more.

Gloriously 60 Day 37 Art – You Are Beautiful

Hi Angels!

We had a busy Sunday attending our oldest granddaughter’s dance recital and then visiting for a bit. We then got caught in a downpour on the way home.

I grabbed the April SCT Sampler & created another quick card for tonight’s post.

All the patterned paper & the butterfly are from Photoplay’s Fern & Willard Collection. Easy peasy with a classic sketch design.

Enjoy a fantastic week!

Gloriously 60 Day 36 Art – Pig Fun

Hi Angels!

When I saw this cute Pig Time set from Pink and Main it just tickled and made me smile. And we can always use a smile

One of the Pink and Main designers used a partially stenciled background on her samples for the set so I decided to case that technique for these cards. I used Pink and Main Daisies & Flora stencils and the pigs are colored with Prismacolors.

There are more piggies in the works. Stay tuned.

Have a Blessed Sunday!

Gloriously 60 Day 35 Art – Pattern Play

Hi Angels!

I’ve been puttering around the house this Friday. I started a small art project but it’s not quite ready to share so I picked out a few pieces from my SCT Sampler & made a quick card.

I don’t often mix pattern papers but it’s fun sometimes to see what you can come up with.

The envelope die cut & circle patterned paper came from the Paige Evans Wonder Collection & the striped background paper came from the Photoplay Fern & Willard Collection. Because both collections have similar colors, it makes it easy to mix & match. I added a die cut love & some more gold hearts.

I think these small sampler kits are going to be so much fun to play with. The small sampling of products is just right to play with some new products without busting the budget.

Find some time to do something creative this weekend!
