DL.ART May Linky

Happy Sunday and happy first of May!! Can you believe how fast this year is flying by? Gosh, it will be Christmas before we know it!! The first day of the month means a new monthly linky at DL.ART. As always, the theme is Anything Goes. Use the code l01210 to save 10% on your purchase at DL.ART :)


I created two mixed media cards for this month's linky, using Samra's beautiful mood board from Anything But Cute as inspiration. I pulled the blues and greens from the mood board, as well as the flowers and butterfly. The papers are from Lemoncraft's Forget-Me-Not, Never-ending Summer and House of Roses Basics stacks.


DecoArt Crackle Paste was applied through a Crafter's Workshop Brick Stencil. The edges of this card were inked with Tim Holtz Twisted Citron Distress Ink...seriously, it's become one of my very favorites!!


Broken China Distress Ink was used on this card. The bottom layer of the butterfly is heavyweight (110 lb) cardstock. The next layer was covered with Shabby White Frantage. Those two layers are Memory Box Isabella dies. The top layer, a Memory Box Pippi die, was covered with Recollections Ocean MicroBeads.


This one was covered in Cricket MicroBeads. I used a Tim Holtz Splatter Brush to apply random spots of white acrylic paint.


The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Memory Box Chloe dies and Sue Wilson Faux Quilled Leaves are tucked under the blooms. The sentiments are Tim Holtz Remnant Rubs. This gorgeous crinkle ribbon is Royal Blue from The Blues Bundle.


The tags are from My Creative Time. The twine is White Twine from Diana's shop. This gorgeous ribbon is Green Hue from Mermaid's Tale Third Edition. I am entering these in the following challenges:

1) Anything But Cute Challenge #13 - Earth Day (Blue, green, flowers and butterfly from mood board)

2) Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
3) Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
4) Pause, Dream Enjoy Linky - Anything Goes
5) 2 Creative Chicks - Anything Goes
6) Live and Love Crafts - Blossoms &/or Butterflies


Now it's your turn!! Head on over to DL.ART to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for today's challenge!! Then link up your Anything Goes project!! I can't wait to see what you create :)

Christmas--you are scaring me! I haven't made a Mother's Day card yet!

Your cards are beautiful! So many creative elements--the tags, lace trim, splattering, magnificent florals.

Sherrie K. said...

Wow, these are both incredibly gorgeous! I really love the green shades especially! Maybe drawn to that more because you don't see that color to much! LOVE the textures, elements and of course the papers...which you always pick the perfect combination! The flowers, ribbon and lace look gorgeous! Lovely details my friend!
I can't believe it is May either! I cannot believe how fast this year is cruising along! Arya is almost done with preschool for the year...yikes! I have had an extremely busy few weeks hence the no posting lately :( Just no time right now to craft, Ugh! I love all your amazing projects and really miss getting inky these days. Soon.... I hope to be back at it!
Hugs,
Sherrie K

Oh my Lisa! Absolutely stunning!
Love everything about these marvels and the tucked tags are so cute that way ;)
Thank You Lisa!
Hugs~

MaryH said...

Can't remember if I've mentioned how much I like the new blog look. Very light & airy for summertime. Love the look on the crackled brick in the background. Looks very realistic. You certainly nailed the color challenge in both of these cards, with the vivid hues in each card. As always so many lovely layers, embellies tucked in and among, so one keeps going back for another look. How you can combine all these layers & elements, have it be so cohesive and not confusing...that's a real skill. Wonderful - both of these brilliantly colored cards. TFS & HUgs

MiamiKel said...

Swoon! Such a stunning duo of cards, so bright and light and just have a float away feel! I love the distressing and the gorgeous attention to detail - and those flowers! I'm always in awe of your cards and these are just a vision ♥ Hugs!

Wow, Wow, Wowie, Wow, Lixa! these cards are just fantabulous with a cherry on top! Two of my favorite colors and love all those shabby layers and those beaded, frantaged, layered butterflies! So many beautiful details for my eyes to take in, but so artfully arranged! I could sit and stare for days, and I've already started by spending all my "coffee time" here this morning! What a wonderful start to my day!

I almost forgot to thank you for joining us for our Earth Day challenge at Anything But Cute. Hugs! Sara Emily DT

Hi Lisa,
Two beautiful cards; blue is my favourite colour, and yellow is the colour I like the least, but I'm nonetheless quite keen on your yellow card. It looks so fresh combined with the limegreen. Thanks so much for playing with LLC.
