So Much Love from Scrapping For Less and MFT

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here and let me just say.. Happy Galentines day!!!
I had a lot of fun making this project and hope you are inspired.
For this card I used the MFT Lots of Hearts stencil and Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry and Candied Apple. I used my blending brushes to add the ink for get a more toned down look. 
All dies are from the MFT Blueprints 13 collection (the stenciled panel, sentiment panel and banner with my little PI girl). 
I stamped the "So Much Love" PI girl with MFT Extreme Black Ink as I knew I was going to be using my alcohol markers onto color her.
My sentiment is stamped using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink.
My sentiment and PI girl panel are popped up using fun foam.
I layered my stenciled panel on a panel of Razzleberry card stock, which is then attached to a white A2 4.25" x 5.5" top folding card base. And with that my project was complete.
Here is another look.

For the daisy I stamped using Versamark and Heat embossed using Gold Embossing Powder. I used a Yellow Nuvo Watermarker to color the daisy. The daisy is popped up using foam tape to give dimension.

LeeAnn <-- you are here
Now for my project!!!
I used the Lawn Fawn "Sweetest Flavor" stamp set and Reveal Wheel Add On Die to make this project. I also used a banner die from my stash.
I used distress oxides in Cracked Pistachio and Squeezed Lemonade for my background as they went perfect with the Doodles Paper Playground "Limonade" Sparkle Blends that are in each of my 5 shakers.
I used Judikins Embossable Window Plastic Sheets to act as my cover on the inside of my shakers. And I doubled up my Foam Mounting Tape as my adhesive to give it just enough height for the sparkle blends to move.
My favorite ice cream flavors are Mint Chocolate Chip and Banana, so these colors worked for me to make this project. Give me a cone with either of those flavors or both and I am happy.

You Are My Anchor with White Rose Crafts

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with a Water Activated Ink project from White Rose Crafts.

I had a great time with this project and here is how I did it. First I used a panel of water color paper cut 4.25" x 5.5". I then took out my Distress Oxide Reinkers in Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch. I wet the paper a bit with a clean paint brush and dropped on some of the Tumbled Glass, once dry I did the same with Mermaid Lagoon, and again once dry I did the same with Blueprint Sketch, moving down the page allowing the inks to blend together but also giving them a chance to be alone. Once the entire panel was dry I spritzed with my clean water just to add some spotting.
I stamped on a different panel the images from Lawn Fawns Float My Boat stamp set.
I then used a set of distressed edge dies from my stash to cut out my panel, attached it to my card base with foam tape and then attached my images. I did attach the anchor to the boat using some Lawn Fawn bakers twine.
