Hello, my artsy friends, welcome to the weekend! Sundays were meant to be relaxing, so sit back, enjoy, and let those creative juices flow.
What’s not to love about this sweet layout, it’s so soft and feminine, and perfect to support the priceless black and white photo. Riikka truly is the queen of fine detail; how creative to use Gelatos instead of ink to stamp the hearts in the background.
I just love the chipboard embellishments from Scrap FX. The book paper butterfly and the flying seed spores are my favorites; they add such a whimsical touch. For more details on this beautiful layout, click here and I will lead the way over to the Paperiliitin blog where Riikka shares some great tips and tricks. Happy scrappin’!
With shaker cards being so popular, I thought you might enjoy this adorable card designed by Lucy Abrams. Lucy now has her own die collection, and on this card she used her very own Shaker Shapes Star and Heart Die. These dies really simplify the process of creating perfect shaker cards.
I know you’re wondering where to find the gorgeous sequins used to fill the balloon; those are also part of Lucy’s new collection and they’re called the Gilded Rose Shaker Selection. This is a fabulous combination of seed beads, sequins, and confetti that all coordinate perfectly. Keep up the good work creating smiles one card at a time!
This arty card is sure to lift anyone’s spirits; it’s so sweet. It was this beautiful water colored background that first caught my eye. The watery background for the hippo was created using Sharon’s Copic Watercolor Background technique.
Sharon has perfected several amazing background techniques that you don’t want to miss, so click here and I will take you over to the CLASSroom where Sharon has prepared easy to follow instructions. You’re gonna love em!
Most people associate the Sizzix Big Shot with die cutting paper, but this amazing machine does so much more. This darling bunny was cut out of fabric using the Bunny die by E.L. Smith; this die comes with all the directions needed to cut and assemble the bunny.
With the 4th of July less than a week away, I thought you could use a fun way to serve fruit at your 4th Of July BBQ. How cute would this fruit bouquet look on your table?! They are easy to make, so attractive, and who doesn’t love fruit?
For some great tips hop on over to visit The Produce Mom; she really has some great ideas on serving fruits and veggies.
Thanks for sharing a bit of your Sunday with me. I hope you and those you love have a wonderful 4th of July weekend; don’t forget to take lots of pictures!.
