MLC- April card

It's time for the April Merry Little Christmas Challenge! This time I decided to use a Lawn Fawn set that my hubby got me for Christmas. Its so cute!!!

I used the greenry from the set to create a little decorative stip on the card base. Then I stamped the images and sentiment on a panel to color. I did add some sparkle to the wings... can't have a fairy Christmas card with out sparkle! ;-) 

Thanks for stopping by, can't wait to see what you share with us this month! Have a great week!

Fruitful journal page with Joy Clair

Today is a special post for Joy Clair as we are having a blog hop! We all are sharing projects using sets from Joy Clairs Color by Faith line. I chose to create another page for my faith art journal and I decided to use the set Fruit of the Spirit.

I started by stamping all the sentiment in the middle of my page before stamping the fruit. Once I was done I realized that I got a little to close with an orange to the sentiment, so I stamped it again on a separate piece of paper and rounded the corners.

Then I colored all of my fruit with Arteza watercolor markers. Once I was done coloring I added the sentiment panel to the page and lined with some gray and a thin line from a black pen. I then adhered my decorated panel to the page in the journal.

SID March- a little note

Happy Monday or whatever day it is when you stop by! ;-) My boys on Spring Break and I wanted to join in on the fun with some butterflies on my card for Stick It Downs March card sketch!

I recently purchased the Butterfly Gala set from Stampin' Up. Was going to do all stamping on the butterflies since it's a layering set, but decided to use Stampin' Blends to add color to my butterflies.

To finish the card I added some "trails" for the butterflies with a thin marker and added my sentiment!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope to see you create something using the card sketch or even one of the scrapbook layouts we have going on this month over at Stick It Down challenge blog!
