Multimedia Pieces with Butterfly Stamp and Ranger Distress Inks

Thank you for joining me!
Today I am showing you some of my multimedia pieces inspired by a lovely Butterfly, and Ranger Distress Inks.
I had tons of fun recycling materials for this one-of-a-kind project to beat the cold weather (yes, I have over 20 inches of the white stuff outside my window!)

My Recipe: Recycled Cardboard, and packing envelope.
 Liquitex Basic Acrylic Gesso / White
 Ranger Distress Inks (Several).
Once Those were all applied, and the ink and Gesso were still wet, I sprinkled Embossing powders in Blues and Yellow and heat embossed the areas.
Hero Arts G1243 Large Butterfly Stamp Neenah White Cardstock (80lb), colored using a pearlescent palette of watercolors, and Derwent Inktense Pencils.
I used several dies from Spellbinders, Sizzix, and Ali Express that I cut out of the same paper. These were all painted using the same inks, and some I embossed with Bit of Paisley Cricut Cuttlebug folder. I hope that this inspires you to have some fun, and break out of the box with whatever materials you may have on hand. Thank you for watching, and please comment and subscribe to my channel!
Be blessed, Raquel💜💙

Mermaid Pop Up card using Cricut Design Space 3

Thank you for stopping by!
In this video tutorial you will learn how use Cricut Design Space 3, Print & Cut, and other little details to make a stand-out Mermaid card for any occasion!

There are 3 videos total.

 In the 1st you will learn how to add a Pop-Up element, using Score lines with Cricut Design Space, and shapes available in the Cricut Access library.



In the 2nd video, you will learn how to Add Text to personalize your card.
***Key points are to always EDIT in groups, allowing yourself to work in sections. Once your text looks as you like:  Select the entire text box, flatten it, then attach it to your shape. It will automatically cut your shape and keep your text as a print option.***

The 3rd video will explain assembly, as well as the "Bleed" option to printing your shapes. I hope you enjoy learning how to use all of these awesome elements in Cricut Design Space3. Please leave me feedback, or a link to where I can see what you have created!

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.

OMG Moment

So have you ever had one? You know, an OMG moment? I end that phrase with "gosh" by the way. And yes, we all have OMG moments, and for that occasion, here's a card! Interpret as you wish. I'd like to enter it into Crafty Creations Challenge #111- In Stitches, and into Scrappy Moms  Smiley Cards challenge. TFL!
