Watercolour Inlaid Butterfly

So last week I was playing at my desk and wanted to try and recreate a look I had seen on Pinterest.  I grabbed some Shimmery White Cardstock and a few ink colours plus my Aquapainter and set to work.  Well, my experiment turned out WAY better than I thought (YAY!) so I thought I would share it with you:

Doesn’t it look cool? I was so happy with the pop of bright colour, but with all of the white on the card it did need just a little something else to give it a lift so I spritzed a little Vanilla Smooch Spritz on – Pretty!

This Day Summer Card

Here is another fun project I created using the This Day Project Life Cards that you can earn FREE during Sale-a-Bration.  As soon as I saw the little sunglasses on one of the cards I knew I really wanted to cut them out and make them a stand-out element on a bright card.  And this card really is bright – you almost need to wear sunglasses when you look at it!

This Day PL Sun_MagpiecreatesHa!  So summery and fun – I just smile every time I look at it!

Sheltering Tree Anniversary

As I mentioned on Monday, hubby & I celebrated our wedding anniversary over the weekend – 12 great years together!  I had been itching to use my Sheltering Tree stamp set and decided it was the perfect set to create an anniversary card with.  Here’s what I came up with:

Sheltering Tree_Anniversary_Magpiecreates Want to guess how many little hearts are on the tree? Yep, 12 – one for each year we have been married – I thought it was a cute little touch!  You will be seeing lots more of this stamp set – I feel calm and relaxed every time I see that tree!
