My Wonderful Mother

The theme at Stampin' Royalty this week is MOM!!!
I truly have the best mom in the world and love her so much!
I was inspired by colors i thought she would like together to make this card. I heat embossed the butterfly in white, then used sponges to kind of 'color' the wings. I then cut the butterfly out and layered it on an embossed background piece. I heat embossed the sentiment and hand cut it out, and layered this one on also.  I used my glitter glue to add some sparkle to the butterfly, because you can never have enough sparkle, right? The card is very pretty in real life, and although she might just see this post, i am excited to give it to her for Mothers Day :o)

Bloomin' Birthday

This weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge is a Color Challenge! :o)

I actually found it challenging to put in both Daffodil Delight AND Summer Starfruit, because they are fairly similar in color. But i used it as one of the mats, on the center of the flowers, and the ink for the En Francais stamp used behind the sentiment.

Baby, Baby

The theme at Stampin' Royalty this weeks is Babies!

This card is fairly self explanatory, I die cut the moon as a circle, then ran it through again, creating a moon shape. I used my markers to create the stitching effect, and created 'stars' with silver glimmer paper. 
after i had already made the card, i thought it would be cute to put a little punch art baby laying on the moon...
i guess i will have to make another!

Color Wheel

The Challenge this week at Stampin' Royalty is a Color Challenge! 

I created a VERY simple card for this challenge, and i used placement and texture to 'fill out' the card and keep it interesting. I knew i would have the solid cardbase with no mats or anything, so i decided to emboss it so it had texture. The sentiment is heat embossed on Peach Parfait with white Embossing Powder.  The center of the flower was made by me, i used one of the eye punches for the Owl Builder punch, punched out a circle of white, glued Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on it, then covered it heavily in Crystal Effects and let it dry. It gives it kind of an opal look. :o)  One more thing i think i need to mention is that i put silver mini brads in the center of the wheels. not a lot of product used, and very simple to put together, but it has a finished look.
