Looks very blue here but I assure it is turquoise
The saying is from MFP Butterfly Essence
A Spellbinder die and a sticker butterfly
Come play
See it against blue

Color Burst

Yes  Yes  I know you are all going to say what is she talking about I have been using this for years
Well for the few of you like me who have never used  heard or seen Color Burst
here is the scoop
I received this small bottle of Color Burst in a Blog Candy  yesterday
I read the directions on the bottle  ( which by the way is called Sepia )
I am to wet a porous ( water color ) Paper and puff the powder on to it
Above is my very first attempt
When the powder hit the moist paper it bleed out showing several colors
I feel I was a smidge heavy on the poof it might be a learning curve
but I am ready and willing to learn
Now I am off to research what other colors are available
FYI  the image is My Besties

MFP 21 Pleated Skirt

What a fun tutorial
The stamp is from Big Cupcakes  MFP set
I am thanking a friend who went shoe shopping with me
I had been in a brace for four year and finally have matching feet
Shopping was so much fun
No heels any more but no reason to wear them here in Florida
Can not do flip flops but strappy sandels are beautiful .
Hope you enjoy the card and will join use with your own

MFP 20 Half Die

Here is a very different tutorial
I should not have done the front in white
I used the MFP stamp Tigar Lily
And the embossing  folder is Cardmaker

If I find a minute ( really it took longer than a minute)
I might try a different color
If I don't get to it maybe you will show us a color version

Craft Rocket Ch 15 Flower Power

For this challenge CRC 15  the theme is FLOWER POWER
This took me on a time trip back to the 70
Once finished the card I realized I didn't use a stamp just dies
All the dies are cut from the one paper
and mounted on handmade paper
I think it turned out just fine
If you have flowers in your stash ( that is all of you )
Come show us your stuff

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenge

Since we are encouraged to not stamp  
 I die cut the back ground over white card stock
Covered the corner with lace added the flowers and the symbol
For this card I cheated just a tiny bit
The tulips are Penny  Black with matching die
Colored with copic 
Mounted on an alcohol ink piece from my stash
Hope you like them and will come over and play with us

Unicorn Challenge 5 Spotty Dotty

A fun challenge at
this month
Spotty Dotty Polka Dots
Lots of fun
I first outlined some spots with chalk sort of like coffee stains
I then stamped the lion (unknown)  in distress ink  in the largest spot
The bubble die seemed to be the best embellishment
Hope to see you there
