Easter Egg

Capture d’écran 2019-03-30 à 11.32.35I thought an Easter Egg was Capture d’écran 2019-03-27 à 11.50.44perfect for the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #314 along with those nice soft colours from Color Throwdown Challenge #536.  I used Gloss Gel Medium over two stencils (Kaisercraft starburst / TCW plaid fringe) onto a cream coloured Egg die cut and added mauve and moss green glitter.  An old border die cut from Memory Box for the mid section was heat embossed with antique EP.  The Little B Bouquet blooms were added along with some Nuvo Drops, plus more mauve glitter.  Have a great weekend, thanks for stopping by, HUGz, JoannaIMG_3919

Open Scroll Butterfly

Capture d’écran 2019-03-28 à 13.02.42I’ve had this NBUS die since foreverCapture d’écran 2019-03-28 à 13.02.55 and the TIME OUT Challenge #132 along with the CAS(E) this Sketch #315 were the perfect motivation to bring it out.  Like most of you already know, I love heat embossing and that’s how I treated this die cut using silver pearl, gold, black and glitz EPs.  On the card base, I added embossing paste using the Tim Holt 4 stripes along with some clear rock candy.  Some Nuvo glitter drops were added to the body.

Blue Bloom

Capture d’écran 2019-03-19 à 11.09.55Fiona at CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #313 chose Old Olive, Sahara Sand & Pacific Point as the colour scheme.  I die cut the Memory Box Sketch Daisy out of Sahara Sand card base.  Before adhering my flower, I stategically smooshed some Old Olive and Pacific Point on the card base.  Crackle accents were added in the flowers apertures, some blue butterflies were stamped and the edge was embossed with a stitched border from MFT.  Finally, I stamped some script on the edge of my folded card stock in the three colours.
