April Birthdays

April is almost here, and since that's my birthday month, I thought I would share a birthday card with you today.  I used a stamp from Heartfelt Creations and colored with my Copics.  I also got a chance to play with some of my new Spellbinders - Persian Accents and Persian Motifs. Be sure to look for all of these must-haves at Scrap-Mart! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Creative Paperclay Butterfly Tile

Using Creative Paperclay with rubber stamps lets you create very cool embellishments for your paper projects.  I used a stamp from Hampton Arts to stamp into a slab of Creative Paperclay to make this tile.  After it was dry, I covered the entire piece with black Distress Stain, to get into the details.  In the recessed butterfly area, I used Wow Embossing Powder in Bay Area Blue (which is a transparent powder).  This gave kind of an enameled look.  Finally, I rubbed Viva Gold Decor over the raised areas.

Happy Day Mini Album

I just finished working on this mini-album, and just couldn't wait to share it with you! Can you tell I'm ready for spring? LOL!  I just got some new Wow Embossing Powders, and they were perfect for this project. I used the Suzy West Bubble Gum and Opaque Pastel Pink Regular.  The two colors coordinated great together. I embossed the butterfly in the Bubble Gum, and then painted over the desing with Creative Inspirations paints.  Then, I just took a damp paper towel and wiped away the paint from the embossed areas. I hope this inspires you to have a happy day!
