{ Bella BLVD & CardMaker Blog Hop }

Hi and welcome to Bella Blvd and CardMaker blog hop. Today we are showcasing cards and/or other paper-crafting projects made using the Illustrated Faith products.

Here is what I created. I love Shanna’s Favorite Paint Set and wanted to incorporate them into my card.

Hello by Daniela Dobson

I started with a sticker sheet that I cut down to the size of my card.

I added white gesso over the top. Then I added pink paint.

Hello step 2 by Daniela Dobson

Once it was all dry I added my embellishments from Friendship Die Cuts.  I layered them using 3D foam squares. For the buterrfly I added paint to watercolor paper and stamped the butterfly from Fly Free stamp set with Black Eyed Pea ink. I fussy cut the butterfly and added some enamel hearts.

Here is one more look at the card. I love how vibrant the paints are. I can’t wait to use them again.
