Samantha joins us today with inspiration for the Lots of Heart challenge! Her lemony Valentine is so beautiful featuring You’re the Zest!

Samantha began this lovely design by stamping the lemons and the leaves from Be Hap-pea with Jet Black Ink. She colored them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Next, she used the coordinating dies to cut them all out. Then she added some super cute details to the images with a white gel pen!

Samantha die cut the Giant Outlined: Love Ya from white cardstock. She used Distress Oxide Inks ink pinks and corals to add the color! Then she backed it all with vellum for a soft look!

To create the background, she used Distress Oxide Inks in shades of yellow for the diagonal stripes. She finished the card by popping up the sentiment strip and the lemons with foam tape!

Thank you so much for sharing this awesome card inspiration, Samantha!

Samantha joins us today to share a gorgeous Christmas card!

Samantha cut the Stitched Poinsettia and Stitched Mug Frame from white cardstock so she could add color with Distress inks! She first did a watercolor wash then she blended on more ink to add vibrancy to the color! She made a fun shaker element by adding acetate to the mug and filling it with clear and silver sequins!

I love the details that Samantha added to this gorgeous design; the splatters on the mug frame and poinsettias and the pattern in the background with Simple Stripes: Diagonal! She also included a sentiment from Window Scene: Winter!

This card is so beautiful, Samantha! Thank you for inspiring with us today!


Happy crafting, friends!
