Teapot Tuesday

Hello and happy Tuesday everyone! 
 It's been a busy summer full of excitement at our house! 

A Day to celebrate

A week of intense play

 A 16th Birthday Celebration

College Orientation

Plus several shopping trips for the new school year and countless chauffering opportunities for teen get-togethers has made for a dazzling summer!

As our summer nears the end with school daze less than two weeks away, I took a little time out from all the dazzle to refresh my soul with a little art.   I played along with Teapot Tuesdays and this week's Featured Stamper challenges at Splitcoaststampers. 

My teapot and cups were made with Brilliant Red Brusho then die cut and placed on a background I created with an Elegant Writer pen. To show off the pretty Brusho cups and teapot I cut away the solid handles and spout on the white decorative layers.   The "Decorative Tea Time" dies add fun texture to the tea set so I am adding this to Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge which is to Add Texture!

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.

 Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

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!
