April Showers and Puddle Boots

Hello! We all know the saying, April showers bring May flowers. Well, the Stampendous team is celebrating the April showers this week! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen this card (or it's components) before. I colored the images for The Daily Marker's 30 Day Coloring Challenge. It's so much fun to try to color every day for an entire month. If you're not sure what I'm referring to, check out my Instagram HERE. Here's my project.

I started off by stamping the Puddle Boots with VersaFine ink in Tuxedo Black on to Canson Mixed Media Paper. Then I colored them with Zig Clean Color Markers. I fussy cut the image out, leaving a thin white border around the image.

The background was colored with the Laurel Burch Floral Reflections focal stamp. I adore the composition of these flowers. I've colored them a couple of times and they are just so pretty. I stamped the flowers in 2 opposing corners and colored them with my Zigs. My sentiment is from the Laurel Burch Floral Greetings set, and I stamped it with Rich Cocoa Memento ink from Imagine.

These images are so bold and bright, I really didn't want to add anything else to the card. I created a brown card base and called it a day. I don't know what it is about this card, but it's one of my favorites that I've made this year so far. I hope you like it too! Please be sure to visit the other folks from Stampendous that are posting along with me today. Their links are below. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
