Fusion Challenge - Celebrating the Green

Hi friends! I hope you're having a great day! If you're looking for a new challenge you'll find another winner at . You'll love this challenge because there are three ways to play.. you can play along with the sketch, be inspired by the photo, or FUSE them together and play with BOTH!
My first look is always at the photo.. I guess that makes me a "visual" thinker. This time we have a collection of green paint samples on a rustic wood panel. I see some herbs, succulents and some foliage too. Not loving the photo? That's ok.. just play along with the sketch!
All that green got me thinking about St. Patrick's Day and my favorite Irish inspired stamp set called Best of Luck from Pretty Pink Posh.
I gave this older set a new look with the Slimline Peekaboo die set that was added to the shop last release. I love all the stitching detail that always makes me think of Pretty Pink Posh.

I inked the trio of stitched square inserts with distress ink before inserting them inside the windows and adding the little figures that were colored with Copic markers. A scatter of gold sequins is from the pot at the end of the rainbow!
Wishing YOU lucky! I wonder how you will interpret the photo! Maybe you need a little more inspiration? Check out designs from the rest of the team. Just click on their names below to jump to their blogs.


I hope I see you at Fusion Card Challenge! I cant wait to see what you make!

Pretty Little Studio Potpourri Hello

Well hello there! I hope you're having a great day! Today I'm sharing a simple hello greeting made with the Pretty Little Studio Potpourri Collection. You'll find this beautiful collection under "fall" in the Shoppe, but don't be fooled.. this beautiful collection is perfect all year round!
What I find most striking about this collection is the soft watercolor look. The images are loosely drawn and the colors are vibrant and rich.
I arranged the Hello Bubbles die cuts on a background of pattern papers. The green one is attached flat to the card base while the other two are adhered with adhesive foam tape. This adds dimension to the design. The little flower on the green bubble is from the Family Branch die cut pack.
The finishing touch is a simple So Much Beauty sticker sentiment and a sprinkle of shiny sequins.
  
Life really is better with friends. This is a nice hello for one of mine to let her know I care.

Simple Stories Bunnies & Blooms Collection

Are you anxious for spring to arrive? I know I am! The snow is beautiful, but I’ve about had my fill of shoveling and the freezing temps these past few weeks. The Simple Stories Bunnies & Blooms Collection is a sweet escape to warmer days and time spent in the garden.
My cards start with pattern paper layers using the 6x8” pad available in this collection. The pad size and smaller prints are ideal for card making. One 6x8” sheet cut in half will cover two A2 (4.25 x 5.5”) card fronts. The pad even includes cut apart sheets of 3x4” journaling cards for quick cards and tags.
The collection includes printed die cut Bits & Pieces as well as Journaling Bits and Pieces with sentiments and spaces for adding your own personal handwritten note. This time I used the Chipboard images with the Journaling Bits and Pieces to create my cards. The Chipboard has adhesive backing and adds dimension to your projects.
The images are all Springtime! You’ll find garden sheers, trowels, seed packs and watering cans. Of course birds, blooms and bunnies are included for your garden scenes.
It’s all sunshine and rainbows after the spring showers make flowers. I’m smitten with the sweet butterflies and pastel colors in this beautiful collection.
How fun is this checklist? Got Spring? Butterflies? Check! Flowers? Check! Rain Boots and Easter Baskets? This collection has you covered!
Take a sweet spring escape with the Simple Stories Bunnies & Blooms Collection! You’ll be glad you did!
