Hello You

I haven't hopped in a while.
 This month's inspiration photo really made me want to dig into my stash of patterned papers and create something.

How is this for a beautiful bunch of fabric? Kind of makes me want to quilt.
And I'm no quilter.

I used some MME paper, Polka Dot Basics and the fun new Trendy Tree Tops stamps and dies. This is one adorable set. 
I also made a matching envelope using the envelope liner die. Such an easy way to dress up an envelope. I glittered the clouds and placed a small piece of glittered CS behind the bird.

Thanks for visiting:)

You are a Blessing to Me

Well how beautiful is this?

This is our inspiration photo for Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger this week. I was inspired to create a card using watercolor paints, which I haven't done in a very long time.

I couldn't resist:)

This butterfly die I discovered on Betsy Veldman's blog when she made a set of small note cards with it. I instantly loved it. It is a Quickutz die that includes both the solid butterfly and the one with the circle cutouts. I cut them from watercolor paper and then painted with four different colors. I cut off the paper antennas and added the flower stamens in their place.
The leaves were cut with PTI's Turning a New Leaf die and I colored those with Distress Inks - Tattered Straw and Old Paper. The sentiment is PTI's Signature Greetings.
This was a fun card to make. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Wish Big

This is for Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday. And I got it done on Monday. Hooray.
When I saw Betsy's cards I knew I wanted to try this - so fun.

The floral spray was made with Beautiful Blooms. I used the Tag #1 die to cut some yellow felt. That little yellow circle you see under the pearls is the hole part of the die, the part we usually toss. And that sentiment is from a new favorite set, Script Sentiments.
I'm also sending this over to the Create: blog for their current request for Spring Cards. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Easter Greetings

Heartwarming Vintage is having a Linky Party!

I have quite the stash of Crafty Secrets clear art stamps and other vintage-inspired products. So I just had to get busy and get something made.

I used 2 Crafty Secrets sets for my card today: Happy Easter and Artsy Banners. Artsy banners is one of my favorite sets - so many background building possibilities with this set. I used the text image to create the red patterned paper. The focal image and sentiment are from the Happy Easter set. I glittered the bunny and popped it up on pop dots.
Patterned papers are On the Bright Side by My Mind's Eye. The frame paper is October Afternoon.
I'm also adding this to the Create blog's current challenge asking for Easter cards:)
Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to stop by Heartwarming Vintage to see more projects for this fun challenge.
