Nevermore Spooky Layout

This was a fun layout to design.  I used several Cricut cuts from both Artiste and Artistry.

Watercolor LOVE

It's Watercolor Paints mania around here!!!  

Today's card was created using the La Vie En Rose papers & Compliments, along with the beautiful stamp set Blossoming Expressions. I finished the card off with a Gold Bling Gem!  I just love the color combo of red, back and white.  Throw a little blue (watercolor paint) in there and it gives it a retro love feel!  

Are you loving these watercolor cards???  I have a couple more that I'll share with you next week, after my class!

Watercolor Paper Garden

Did you know that Close To My Heart has come out with a Watercolor Paint set???

I absolutely LOVE playing with these fun paints!  

I had a great time playing with paint to create this card.  I simply used a thin brush, and long vertical strokes to create a "grass" effect.  Then I tore the paper and layered it.  

The Paper Garden- September Stamp of the Month was the perfect addition to this card.  I love that the flowers coordinate with Cricut Artistry too :) I stamped them in new colors- Pomegranate and Eggplant.   I finished off the card with some of the awesome new Paper Fundamentals Black Glitter Assortments.  

Don't forget the Stamp of the Month is available this month only.  It's just $5 with your $50 purchase.  

I have a couple more watercolor cards to share with you, so make sure you check back :)

Watercolor Wonder

Did you know that Close To My Heart has come out with a Watercolor Paint set???

I absolutely LOVE playing with these fun paints!  

I feel like a kid again painting, it's exhilarating!!

I will be sharing more cards with you this week... but here's the first:

I used green watercolor to paint the bottom part of the card, then stamped it with "Don't let anyone dull your sparkle." from the Diamonds are Forever stamp set.  Then keeping with the Diamond theme, I cut a border of Diamonds from Cricut Artistry, along with the Fab title.  Black Glitter paper along with the Yellow Bokeh patterned paper from Kaleidoscope were perfect!

Check back later this week to see some more watercolor cards :)
