I love how the watercolor background can give a unique look on a card. This technique is becoming one of my favorite of creating backgrounds. For this background I simply scribble the colors using CTMH Watercolor Pencils and then wet them using my aqua paint brush. It is amazing how these watercolor pencils can blend together.

For the heart, I add some Liquid Glass to give some dimension on it.

Supplies from Close To My Heart:

  • You’re The Bomb stamp set (Operation Smile stamp available until 3/31/14)
  • Ink Pads: Black, Pear, Hollyhock

DIY 3D Paper Succulents

Hello crafty friends, today I would love to share with you a project I did for SOUS Die Cut Challenge this week. The theme is In The Garden. You can use any die cut shapes on your project as long as it follows the theme.

I have this flower pot with foam inside. It was a pot of plastic hydrangea but they fell apart that is why I just took them off the pot and let my little daughter play with them. For while, I have been looking for inspiration what to do with it. And then I saw a post from Dawn Nicole’s DIY Paper Succulent Wall Art. She made pretty things using Silhouette Cameo. Check out her blog for lots of inspirations :)

3D Paper Succulents

I love succulents but so far I have not yet succeed to keep them alive long enough as they should. And this pot of succulents now sitting on the shelf in my craft room and they stay fresh without water :D LOL!

Free eBook: Find More Jesus

Easter is less 2 weeks now. And there are some special things we as family love to do during this Lent and Easter. Especially during the Holy Week, this year, I am planning to do Find More Jesus: Make Easter All About Jesus (Christ-Centered Traditions Book 1) from Katie Orr.

This book is perfect for kids age 2 years old and up. She gives the list of supplies and how we can do the devotions with our children, introducing them to Jesus and to find Jesus in the midst of what the world is offering to our children during this Easter season. This book full of activities to help our children to grasp the message of the Lord in ways they can understand and simple. This is a book for busy mind kids and moms.

It is true when she says in the introduction of the book that when we walk through the stores to get things we need or stuff we want to put in the Easter basket, we will not find anything that will tell us where to find Jesus, the center of the season. The one we suppose to adore and proclaim what He had done for the world on the cross.

And Katie has someting very special this year, she is giving this book for FREE for everyone as a gift! Here’s little note from Katie:

Find More Jesus was written with busyness of littles in mind. Each lesson in this 8-day guide can take as little as 5 minutes a day, with very minimal preparation.
So, if you are a mom, grandmom, aunt, or neighbor of children who need to hear the real meaning behind Easter, I’d love for you to have a copy of Find More Jesus. Simply grab a free copy of Find More Jesus, take a little one or two by the hand, and lead them to the Biblical truths of what Easter is all about.
Click here to download the e-guide. (Use “free” at checkout. I’d love it if you’d spread the word about it, too!

This is the book you’ll need to help your children to find more Jesus in this Easter.

Spring Daffodils

Spring is one of my favorite seasons because the flowers are just gorgeous. I am looking forward to enjoy the beauty of the Daffodils at our backyard in the next week. They have some buds coming out and when they bloom, they bring the Spring colors :)

Untitled

Today’s card is inspired by them :) and also some inspirations from Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge – Spring Pinterest Inspiration:

First, I stamped the image on a piece of watercolor paper with Versamark Ink Pad, and then added some Ranger Gold embossing powder and heat set it using my CTMH Craft Heater.

Using CTMH Watercolor Pencils, I colored the flowers and stems and then using my aqua paint brush (retired) to wet them. I decided to add some blue on the background. I picked up the color directly from the CTMH Watercolor Pencils using the aqua paint brush and add it to the paper lightly.

Then using CTMH Craft Heater to dry the watercolor completely (quick way, but you can let it dries naturally) and then I stamped the sentiment from Greatest Love stamp set (B1444) using Black Exclusive Ink Pad.
