Spring Blossoms

Spring Blossoms

Welcome My Crafty Friends,

Here in Maine it is still snowy and very cold I for one am dreaming of Spring and warmer days that bring spring flowers,  I see all these pictures of flowers on Facebook which has inspired my card today.   Here is my inspiration picture for my card.

Image may contain: flower and plant

Here is how I created my card.

Step 1  Form 6X6  card base from white Soft Finish Cardstock.  Cut 5-3/4 X 5-3/4 patterned paper (Through the Lens – Woods used here) adhere to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step 2 From Clear Sticker Paper cut 2 canning jars using Susan’s Garden Canning Jar & Lid set.  Using blue alcohol marker color front of one jar adhere second jar on top of colored.

Step 3  Create flowers approximately 15 cutting from 85# white Soft Finish Cardstock using Garden Notes Flowering Trees (Susan Garden Cherry Blossoms actually used here but is sold out).  Cut 1 of the 3 petal and 2 of the 2 petal for each flower along with 1 stamen.  Cut bunch of leaves from green cardstock  and stems from white cardstock then color with alcohol markers or can cut from brown cardstock.  I double up stems to give more dimension.

Step 4  remove protective paper on back of jar insert stems down top of jar adhere to back of jar.  I cut some branches apart so as to manipulate to where I wanted them.  Add couple pop dots to back of stems in center adhere jar to left side of card.

Step 5  Adhere flowers and leaves to stems using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 6  Using Els Van de Burgt Studio Stitched Ovals cut smallest oval from white Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step 7  Using black ink stamp oval with sentiment.  Susan’s Garden Take Time stamp used here but it is sold out.    Adhere to right side of card.

I do hope you have enjoyed my card today and will make your own.  For any of the Elizabeth Craft Designs products I used I have linked them below just click on any picture it will take you directly to their site.

Hello My Crafty Friends,

Today I have another card that I created for my sweet young co-worker that left for a new job.  Her and her hubby recently purchased a new home so I wanted to do something to celebrate that great event.  For this card I have used Karen Burniston’s House & Fence Pop Up as well as an old Pop It Ups All Seasons Tree Die set and dog is from Susan’s Garden CountryScapes – Critters 5 and daffodils from Garden Edges Daffodil.  The Congrats is Suzanne Cannon – A Way With Words stamped sentiment is Close to My Heart Happy for You set.

Another fun card hope you enjoy!

Good Luck

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I have a card that I created for a sweet co-worker who has taken another job.  I chose to use Karen Burniston’s Circle Tag Pop Up die set for my card also using the Garden Charms.  Fun card to create but wish I had used the same color for card base as I did on the Pop Up that white just seems to jump out at me.

Thanks for stopping by!

Rudy the Reindeer

Hello my crafty friends welcome to my blog!

Today I am posting a card I created for my Christmas Card Challenge group.  This is week 7 of the challenge and the theme this week it is reindeer.  My card was created using Karen Burniston’s new Rockin’ Rectangle Pop Up, Border Blends – Argyle along with an old die of her’s Rudy the Reindeer.  My sentiment was stamped using ECD Classic Christmas Sentiments clear stamps the tree is Stampin Up In The Woods Framelits Dies.

Oh what fun I had creating this card this will be another very versatile die set like the  Square  Spinner Pop Up that I have been making so many cards with.

If you are like me and can’t buy all Karen’s dies (Oh how I wish I could) I really believe the Square Spinner Pop Up and the Rockin’ Rectangle Pop Up will give you the biggest bang for your buck!

Thanks for stopping by today – soon I will be posting some more of my flower cards.

Until next time – Happy Crafting!

Hello my crafty friends,

Welcome to my blog. It has been a while since I posted I am working on some new flowers which I will be posting soon but until then  I have a quick Valentine I have made for my dear friend’s grandson who is 3 and yes it is another Square Spinner Pop Up I just can’t help myself.

Along with Karen Burniston’s Square Spinner Pop Up set I have used one her new releases the Border Blends – Argyle and Jinks the Monkey which is an old die set that is no longer available.

I show the back of the card in this video – sometimes things happen when you forget to put cover back on ink pad.

Thanks for stopping by and until next time – Happy Crafting !
