A Beautiful Watercolor Blue Skies Card by Jenn!

 We are so excited to show you our new Summer Release, join us for Inspiration Week starting May 12th! And we just may have some sneaky peeks for you later this week! 🙂

Jenn joins us today with another gorgeous water-colored masterpiece!

I love Jenn’s vibrantly water-colored Blue Skies hot air balloon! The colors pop against the beautifully painted sky! To add another layer of clouds in the background, Jenn used the coordinating cloud dies to make a stencil to apply texture paste. She cleverly used the cut-out clouds as a tool to spread the texture paste, so nothing went to waste! Brilliant!

Thank you for sharing this wonderfully creative design with us today, Jenn! You totally rock!

Thank you so much for visiting!

We are so happy to have Elise back today sharing 2 adorable banner designs!

Elise created this adorable banner for her niece’s nursery! She used Finley’s ABCs to add the name.

For this banner Elise used Blue Skies hot air balloon and cloud dies without stamping and stitched them together on a sewing machine along with some Hearts Lawn Cuts. This is a fun and easy idea for adding cuteness to a nursery!

Thank you so much for sharing your brilliant banners with us today, Elise!
