Atlantic Hearts Sketch #209

Welcome to another Atlantic Hearts Sketch #209.  I found this one to be a tough one.  I kept thinking the Olympic Rings but I didn't know what to do with that.  So the longer I thought about it and pondered it over a cup of coffee, it finally hit me.... or spilled!  

Feel the love.  Caffeinated love.

The background was embossed with triangles.  The middle section was created with the Concord 9th triangle stamp.    The spilled coffee stamp is from Altenew and the coffee cups are from Newton's Nook.  I do love my coffee.

Happy Crafting!

4 Crafty Chicks - Butterfly Challenge


A butterfly challenge!  How fun!


This card was designed for the 4 Crafty Chicks Card Challenge - Butterfly.  I used the Die'sire floral die cut to create the edges.  The background paper is scrap paper left over from when I was playing with my Gelli plate and acrylic paints.  The colors worked perfectly!  The butterflies (Memory Box) were die cut from water color paper that I painted with purples and pinks and sprayed some sparkle mist on.  I embossed the sentiments on vellum and attached!  This was a fun card to make and will hopefully remain a secret for my mom!

Happy Crafting!

Rubbernecker Challenge #7 April Showers

I missed the last Rubbernecker Challenge by a few hours and wasn't going to let this one pass!  April showers do bring May flowers as I'm sitting here on our own rainy Sunday looking forward to all that it brings tomorrow!  We planted a lot of flowers this weekend and I can't wait to see them bloom.  For the background, I sprinkled some colorburst on white cardstock and then sprayed the paper lightly with water.  Once that dried, I embossed the raindrops and then used some ink and a sponge to highlight the raindrops a bit more.  I diecut an umbrella and covered it with flowers and diecut 'celebrate'.  It was a fun little project for a rainy Sunday.  Happy Crafting!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #207


Welcome back to another Atlantic Hearts Sketch #207.  I used the Heartfelt Creations Rose stamp and die.  I selected a dark colored paper, embossed in clear, and die cut out each flower.  I then shaped them and glues all the layers together.  The 'Thankful' die is from Simon Says Stamp.

I hope you enjoy!  Happy crafting!
