For my creation I chose to play with the watercolor pencils, and went with a purple and green color theme.  I stamped the images on our vellum paper, and colored the reverse side and went over the colors with our medium watercolor brush.  I added the vellum to a Lilac cardbase, and finished it off with a White Daisy Frame.  I stamped Love You as my sentiment in Black Ink.

For my project I decided to do a page for my daughter's scrapbook.  This layout is using So Much Happy paper, mainly scraps left over from creating the workshops.  I used the Stitched Squares to create a quilt like pattern.  The photos show some fun times at the Discovery Center where my daughter's class went on their class trip.

I used Sapphire and Willow cardstock for my mats.  I used Sapphire Ink for my stamping.

Butterfly Friendship Inside Spinner Card

Yesterday I participated in the Thin Cuts Blog Hop with fellow CTMH consultants. I created an inside spinner card for my project. Once I had it complete I knew that I would be asked how to recreate it, and that I should of made a video to show the process.






















So I set to work getting everything together so that I could create a video to share the process with you all. 



Thanks for coming back to watch!

For this Blog Hop I decided to have some fun and try my hand at an inside spinner card.  I will do a process video to share with you on how to create this fun card.

I used Bluebird cardstock for the base, and the inside of the card is White Daisy Cardstock.  The stamps used on this card is January SOTM, I Heart Us Cardmaking stamp set, and Butterfly Friend ship stamp and thin cut set.  The other Thin cut used was the large circle Thin cut.  I used Bluebird, Carolina, Sweetleaf, Mint, Sage, Raspberry, Canary, Pixie, Charcoal and Black ink to create this card.

Here is a quick video to show how this card works.
