While I was playing with the cute Fuzzball, I ended up taking pictures of him. Then, I found myself downloading PicsArt app which was quite easy to use. Its filters and other tools allowed me to create a 'digital art' version of the original photo. From this, I crafted a birthday card for spring season.

Avery Elle Viking stamp and die-cut when I saw it online a few weeks ago. When I first used the stamp, the ink beaded up and made spotty impressions as a result. So, I gently washed it with dish detergent and pat-dry with paper towel. I then carefully cut out the sentiment (inside the viking's beard) using an X-Acto blade. This allowed me to use a sentiment from Altenew Floral Frame.

Created Valentine's day card 'Butterfly Love' with lots of hearts and some sparkle! As you can tell by now, I use different brands from my stash and is fond of shiny/sparkly touches. For this one, the center piece is cut and embossed from two consecutive sizes of Spellbinders dies. Green and brown inks are dabbed around the edges for depth. Penny Black heart flowers are stamped in different shades of pink/reds and Wink of Stella glitter adds shine to some blooms.

Sparkle Pup is my first attempt of creating a card specifically for challenges, unlike my first post Love You card which I made for Valentine's day. So, this one required a bit of thought (ha ha ha)! Ultimately, the themes of pet and sparkle stood out. The card is super sparkly in person, but tricky to catch it on picture.

This first post (Woo-hoo!) features my "Love You" card perfect for Valentine's day, Mother's day and Birthdays. Lush florals and foliage from Altenew Peony Bouquet and Beautiful Day stamps and die cuts. Images are stamped in layers using Altenew and Ranger ink pads. Stamp Perfect Tool makes stamping in layers a lot easier.
