Here are my projects that I have to share today:
I made a sympathy card using an 8.5x11 stationary sheet from my stash and attached it to a Studio G card base. The paints in the middle are Shimmerz Vibez Razzeldazzle Berry and Jeni B Bleu water based spritz paint and Shimmerz Inklingz Shimmering Watercolors Pugnacious Purple and I added Shimmerz Shimmeringz Goldie Lox- to make it shine- that I won from spiegelmom scraps. The chipboard butterflies are also from Jody. I added the pearl bling to the butterfly and the purple bling both Studio Calico. The twine is Razzleberry Sorbet from Timeless Twine that was just a piece wrapped around the Watermelon Sorbet. I made the card for a friend who's mother recently died of breast cancer. The thinking of you is a Unity Stamp Company Tulips and Daisies set that I stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black pigment ink.
Now the next card:
I made this card for a swap with Mini Albums, Swaps, & More on Facebook. It was a Blind Anything Goes Swap. I made 5 cards and this is one of the 5. It's an easel card. Both papers are from Colorbok Board Plus Boardwalk 12x12 album. I found the tutorial on Easel Card Sticker Photo byd0pen that I found on Pinterest first. The butterfly is from Sticko Animal Creatures as is the little purple flower to prop it open. The ribbon is American Crafts that I bought from TJ Maxx. The Happy Birthday to You is Julie Nutting Mixed Media Cling Rubber Stamps Party Girl set that I bought from Hobby Lobby as is the doll. I colored the doll in with Recollections 2 Markers, American Crafts Pink Glitter Pen, and a Gelly Roll White Pen. I stamped both with VersaFine Onyx Black ink. I left an empty space inside the card for Karen, the woman I swapped with, to write a note when she uses the card. She made me pillowcases!  I have enjoyed hopping with you all this weekend! The next person on the hop is Paula. If you should get lost along the way, the line-up is listed below:
