Welcome to this month’s Fancy Friday Blog Hop! Our team is a group of demonstrators who love to make beautiful things. Sometimes they are clean, sometimes they are layered but the one thing I can say for sure is that our projects will be fancy! If you hopped over from my dear friend Cindy, welcome to the next stop. For March, we decided to have an inspiration challenge. Wow, inspiration is the word!
Isn’t this gorgeous?! How to choose what to focus on with all that spring beauty?!! I know it isn’t any great shock that I was drawn to the butterflies first. I do love a butterfly! And the pink and blue setting on the bottom left is just so pretty! I pulled out watercolor paper and used some Distress Inks to create an ombre effect on the paper. Then, using my Greetings Thinlits and my Butterfly Thinlets, I positioned the dies on my Big Shot to cut them out. I made sure on both cuts that I had a little bit of white left to add interest to the cut-outs. Don’t you love it when a little bit of ink and some dies do all the work? Yeah, me too. I used a Stitched Rectangle as a focal layer and then pulled out my sequins. I have become quite the sequin hoarder and it pays off! The little blue sequin is from the Watercolor Wishes kit and the pink ones are from the February Paper Pumpkin kit. I just love the little bit of sparkle and fun that they add! And these colors are so fabulous together….totally channeling the Pantone colors of the year (a combination of pink and blue).
I love using these little sentiment dies and I seem to be obsessed with “hello” on my cards lately….just noticed that as I was scrolling down some of my latest posts. Just like a “for you”, it is such a workhorse sentiment. You can make the inside anything from a birthday to a thank you to a thinking of you.
I hope you love all the spring loveliness from the team this month! If you find yourself inspired by our picture, make sure to let us know!!
My lovely friend Jeanna Bohanon is up next! As always, she will wow you!
