This is one of my favorite Thinlit sets, Celebrate you pg17, from SAB.  I embossed the butterfly, from Beautiful Day, pg 26 OC, with Copper embossing powder.  I used watercolor paper and filled the image with water.  I then sprinkled Brusho color, pg 20 OC, on the water and used an aqua painter to move the color around.  Colors I used were Brilliant Red, Yellow and Gamboge.  After the image was dried, I sprinkled yellow on the front of the card and gently spritzed with water to provide the background.  I selected Basic Black card stock for the sentiment and cut it out with the Big shot, pg 209 of the AC. Multipurpose adhesive sheets, pg 203, AC, were used to adhere the sentiment to the card front.

Here I covered a pizza box (carried over from the Holiday catalog – Mini pizza boxes (8) use product code 44645, $6.00) with the DSP Painted with Love, page 19 of the OC.  I put this on the sides and top of the box.  We made this at Camp on Saturday and everyone fell in love with this DSP.  I used the Ombre ribbon, page 198, in the AC.  Cut the heart out from our Gold foil paper, page 194, AC with our framelits, Sweet & Sassy page 214, AC.

It is my first born’s birthday today.  She is such an incredible person and I wanted to use this space to tell her so.  What an AMAZING cook she is.  I just spent time with her in TN and she cooked me the most incredible gourmet meals.

I used Brusho on this card.  This time I shook the Brusho out on a large block and then spritzed with water to create this background. I moved the card stock over the block and picked up color from the block.  I loved the way it came out.  I used Brusho Yellow, Gamboge, and Brilliant Red colours.
I colored the flowers from the stamp set, Amazing You, page 16 of the SAB catalog, with our SU markers, Calypso Coral and Peek-a-boo Peach, and Daffodil delight, and Crushed Curry.  The embellishments in the flowers centers are Gold faceted Gems.
Right now through March 31 you can get this stamp set FREE by purchasing $50 of product.  In fact if you spend $100 in product, you can get the coordinating Thinlit dies FREE.   See page 17, SAB for details. The possibilities are endless with these products.
