Brushed Workshop on the Go! I love this set.

 I just love new Brushed Workshop on the Go Kit, it is so versatile to use for anything & the colours are just so vibrant.  I made 2 cards for to teach for my workshop & the girls were very happy with the end results.

I made this a 6"x 6" card.  Cut out the middle & replace it with a piece of acetate.   The butterflies are cut from the Cricut Art Philosophy Collection, I cut 2 different sizes & put some glitter on the top butterfly, stamped Happy Birthday from the Stamp Set B1419 Joyous Birthday on the acetate last so it could dry overnight.
I stamped the inside of the card with stamp set S1306 A Flowering Bunch (retired), with Black Pigment ink from the Basics Exclusive Mini Pigment Pads Z2503.  Embossed with Ranger Clear Super fine Embossing Powder Z2088 & coloured with our new ShinHan Markers.                                                                                                                                                                         (Inspired from a card by Cathy Derouche CTMH consultant)                                                           
The second card I cut out 3 butterflies from the white cardstock, backed it with clear packing tape & pouring glitter over them to stop it from being sticky.  The roses & leaves are cut from the Cricut Artiste Cartridge Z1790.   Leaves were cut, coloured, spritzed with water & crumpled into shape.  Paper & washi tape from the Brushed WOTG kit G1087, white daisy cardstock 1385, Pink glitter gems Z1807, Silver Shimmer trim Z1799, Happy Birthday stamp from stamp set Card Word Puzzle (retired).

What a Hoot! August Stamp of the Month

Here are some cards I made using the What a Hoot SOTM. The top card was inspired by Mischelle O'Farrell Smith, I loved how she used the colours from the new ShinHan Markets. The bird & flower are from the stamp set Happy Birds, the bird & flower are on 3d foam Z1151 .
The flowery card is an idea I got from Dawn Ross & the butterfly is from Your Own Kind of Wonderful stamp set D1627 & the little bird is from Happy Birds C1600.  The butterfly & bird are on 3d Foam tape to raise them up
Z1151 .
The bottom right one I have seen the wings used as flowers on alot of sites & thought I could do it as a Christmas card using leaves cut from the Cricut Artiste Cartridge Z1790....I put liquid glass Z679 on the flowers after I placed them on the card to hold them all down, I used the black sparkles Z1754 in the centre & little sentiment from the Yuletide Greetings stamp set D1553.  I have also used the floral Embossing Folder Z1994.
