Welcome to day three of the hop!   We are sharing "Glad Glads" today.  Warning, I have several photos to share today!  I created two very different looks using the exact shades of ink for both cards.  Both cards were painted with alcohol inks.  When I finished and had the panels side by side, I didn't think either of them turned out.  I wasn't giving up, though with a little bit of CS for the first one and some embellishment on the second a couple of cards were born!


The wood grain DP has some turquoise in it so I picked that up with CS bases.

The butterfly is paper pieced and flies away from the card:

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you will check out all the beautiful inspiration my teammates have created for you and leave a comment for your chance to win today's stamp set!




  1. Beautiful cards. I love the colors used. AJ-

  2. Wow, these are so gorgeous. I love the results of the flowers on the first on.

  3. Such pretty cards. Love the soft colors. TFS AJ-

  4. Angie - they are so pretty, particularly the first one. Did you stamp with Alcohol inks for that one? It gives a lovely soft feel and as usual the inside is all posh too!

  5. I think they both look fabulous.

  6. Two very nice cards you shared today. I do like the first one very much- maybe the brightness of the glads appeals to me!

  7. Oops! I've been following your blog but never became a follower. It's official now. Would you like to follow me as well?

  8. Forgot to say that I love what you did with the alc inks and the dimensional butterfly. TFS.

  9. I am thinking that maybe you like this set! I absolutely adore how the first card came out and I love how the butterfly looks as well. Great creations today, Angela. Oh, the clean look of the second is terrific!

  10. Amazing colouring! I love both of these cards, but that first one is my favourite! Is the image heat embossed in white? Its perfect because your painting looks like a little work of art! I may have to borrow that idea! :)

  11. Two gorgeous creations using this set. I LOVE the way you colored the glads on the first one.

  12. Wow! What beautiful cards! I love the second one because of the coloring that you is so perfect with that background. Your first card is lovely, looks like it is water colored! So pretty!

  13. Angie, they turned out gorgeous. I love the yellow glads! Awesome.

  14. All of your cards turned out very nice but I like the first one.
    It made me think of the ones my mother used to grow in the backyard...well done

  15. WOW! I love all the versions of these pretty flowers you shared with us! The first card looks absolutely lifelike with your fabulous coloring! Beautiful!
