FLORA & FAUNA CELEBRATE THEIR 2ND BIRTHDAY!

My sweet friends over at Flora & Fauna are turning 2 today and have a lovely sale going on! Be sure to use code birthday2 over on their site for 20% off!

I actually have an online class featuring some previously released Flora & Fauna stamps right HERE—if you enjoy their quirky and fun stamps/dies, this class is right up your alley!

I have a few creations to share, featuring dies from their most recent release.

Love having this sprig of flowers peek thru the card front like this . . .

This one features negative die cutting and lots of “sloppy” watercolor . . .

Love putting a high gloss finish on die cuts—reminds me of porcelain or ceramic! •all the heart eyes•


Thanks for stopping by!


MY BAD

This set CRACKS me!  I just love these Mermaid Animals!  And how could anyone NOT forgive you with such an apology???  They would have to have no sense of humor whatsoever. Period.

Bird was colored with Prismacolor pencils ( see how his face is turning red??? ), which always look so nice on kraft card stock,  and embellished with a little wiggle eye.  

 

Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment Ink is the best white ink ever.  Just sayin'... 

When I tilt the card, that little eye follows . . . *squee*


All Over Floral

I love the floral images in these Flora & Fauna stamp sets--it's fun to pile on as many as I can onto the lid of my MISTI and create an all-over floral pattern.  These were stamped in a deep, almost cranberry red.

The black spatters are from Distress Paint that I daubed onto an acrylic block and then flicked off onto the card with a paint brush.  It adds a nice bit of texture--the paint is fluid, but thicker than ink so it has really nice opacity when you need/want it.

 

The sentiment looks like my DYMO label maker, but it's actually from a great stamp set by Altenew!  And, all I needed to set off this card was to die cut a few of the sweet leafy branch from a Flora & Fauna die set out of glitter card stock and pop them up along with the sentiment.

I kinda really, really love this birthday design--so simple but that touch of glitter and the paint spatters give it such an elegant look!
