When I saw the Code Word Rainbow at the Addicted to CAS Challenge, I knew I had the perfect Washi Tape to join the fun.
I started by creating my rainbow using Wide Color Pencil Washi Tape. After I had tape lined-up, I decided to create a CAS Set of cards to give to one of my artist friends as a gift (PS ... friends love receiving card sets).
I used STAMPlorations Botanical Lush Stencil with with a sneak peak of some fun new inks from Clearsnap on watercolor paper. I clear embossed the stenciled ink and then rubbed another ink over the top for a resist technique.
We're celebrating Spring with a Things with Wings Blog Hop & Linky Party throughout the month of March with lots of great new releases from STAMPlorations.
I stamped the flower & leaves from STAMPlorations Sweet Spring Wishes repeatedly on a piece of DCWV Designer paper (using my MISTI for perfect all-over coverage) ... I love how the bold lines work with the smaller printed floral background.
And don't you love those fabulously intricate Flutter Zen 2 layering dies butterflies ... the CUTplorations includes both the background & detailed dies for perfect layering. I added a few Eyelet Outlet purple pearls to accent the bodies.
I used some 3-D Glue Dots to give my banner sentiment some movement and dimension ... this card looks like it could fly into the spring-time air.
When we went out to eat brunch on Sunday, I was mesmerized by the gorgeous art printed on dictionary pages that they had adorning the bar. I've been thinking about creating with vintage dictionary pages ever since ... and when I saw the TEXT Challenge at CASology, I knew I had to pull one out.
I'm always on the lookout for vintage dictionaries at used book stores and estate sales ... especially if they're falling apart ... because then it feels appropriate to give them a second life.
This is usually my go to beverage ... I almost always get an iced drink, even in the winter time ... Iced Coconut Chai Latte with Coconut Milk from Argo Tea is my favorite. Whenever I'm near one (usually Chicago) I have at least one a day.
The Easter Eggs (soon to be Easter Chicks) are wishing you a Happy Easter.
I want to cover every surface in my studio with this Wide Glitter Book Washi Tape ... it has an absolutely gorgeous sparkle (with no glittery mess).
I used a tall & thin card design (4" x 7 1/2") to create my book shelf ... attaching the tape to green cardstock created a depth of color behind the books.
And of course, no library is complete without a stack of books (new brads coming to the store soon) and a cup of coffee (or in my case, Chai). Sentiment is from STAMPlorations Literary Caffeine-ations.
STAMPlorations is sponsoring the 3rd Birthday at the Time Out Challenge, so I had the opportunity to join the fun as a Guest Designer.
The theme is Love/Friendship with an Optional Twist of Spotlight Stamping (you know I had to go with the twist).
I knew these paint brushes from STAMPlorations Life in Full Color would be perfect for spotlighting. I stamped it on Watercolor paper and then stamped a second time, so I could spotlight using distress & metallic markers and a square punch.
