Life So Big, Bright and Bold Full Reveal



 Hello, friends!  Today I get to share my
 Red Rubber Designs "Bright and Bold" butterfly project on my blog.  A few weeks ago I shared a clean and simple card showcasing the beautiful Life So Big stamp set but I love seeing how many looks I can achieve with one stamp set so this time, I added bright and bold Brusho Crystal Colors.  

  I started with a piece of 4 x 5 1/4 watercolor paper and sprinkled turquoise Brusho Crystal Colors in the center then spritzed with water. After it was dry, I masked the center then sprinkled purple Brusho Crystal Colors, spritzed with water. 



To finish off the card, I followed the steps of my previous project. I stamped, fussy cut and colored two butterflies, adhering one flat to the stamped image and for the second popping up the right wing for added dimension.


For a bit of sparkle, I added Wink of Stella to the butterfly and then just for fun I added glossy accents to the center.

Red Rubber Designs - Life So Big Full Reveal


Hello! Today I get to feature the beautiful  Life So Big from Red Rubber Designs on my blog.   I am not a big fan of summer weather, but one thing I love about summer is butterfly watching!   There is something so peaceful about watching butterflies flit and flutter.  I also enjoy featuring Butterflies on my paper projects so without further ado here is my card.  

For my project, I stamped the butterfly image on the base of the card and colored it. I stamped, colored, and fussy cut another butterfly layer and  adhered the left wing and body to the base but added foam dots under the right wing for dimension!


For a bit of sparkle, I added Wink of Stella to the butterfly.


For the finishing touch, I added twine at the top and tied a knot.


  Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

Butterflies are Free Full Reveal


Happy Sunday everyone!  Today I get to share photos of my most recent Red Rubber Designs project on my blog.

I chose the Butterflies are Free stamp set from Red Rubber Designs because of the joy this stamp set conveys!  At our house, we are experiencing moments filled with a sense of joy that urge us to fling our hands in the air and do a happy dance but at the same time wonder where the time went!!!  Tonight we  attend a graduation party at church for our son.  He has attended a weekly small group and served in various positions, including video team and co-leading a small group.  We have watched him blossom from a little boy that struggled to connect with others to a young man that reaches out and intentionally connects with others to encourage them in their spiritual journey!  I expect that I will be moved to tears tonight but inside my arms will be  raised in joy as this marks a moment where I let my butterfly free to follow his purpose! 

For my joy filled card, I stamped the cute little jar on a separate piece of card stock and fussy cut so that I could place it on the left side of my sweet girl.  I added a few clumps of grass with pen and marker under the jar to match the rest of the grass.


For the butterfly, I stamped it twice on the same checked designer paper as the border and layered the wings, adhering the top layer just in the center so the butterfly is free to fly!


 A cheerful yellow border and matching paper pieced dress finish off the card.


Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

Since I am in a celebratory mood, I created a card to reflect my feelings. My project  features The Butterflies are Free stamp set from Red Rubber Designs

Just one Leaf ....


Happy Monday, friends!  I hope you had a great weekend. 
I took a little time out on Saturday and created a card with the help of Audrie's IC544 challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  For my design, I used the technique that Kelly shared a couple of weeks on TLC583 challenge.

I chose one stamp from Luscious Leaves by Red Rubber Designs and stamped in a light gray ink, then masked off the leaf and stamped again repeatedly along the edge of the card stock.


For the next step, I sketched in the leaves with a pencil and shaded with a blending stump.  I added one of the sentiments from the Wherever You Go stamp set by Red Rubber Designs and it was done!  

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

I am also playing along with:
