Precious Present

Not to say I am tired of winter....ok wait...I am!!!  LOL!!  I still enjoy doing winter cards but that's IT!!!  Only winter on cards so time for something springy this week.  I'm using the Dutch Doobadoo's flag shape art and a Whimsy image "Precious Present" from around Christmas time.  I thought she would be cute any time of year tho.

I was so excited to finally use my gold colored straws on this card so I draped some flowers and a bunch of moss around them.  Then I popped up a cute butterfly from Pion's "Scent of Lavender" papers.  The sentiment was also from the same collection.

Here I've made a Foamiran flower, colored the center using yellow ink, added some stamens and popped a pretty button on top.  Oh and I luuuuuuv those gorgeous metal leaves!  Wow can you ever bend them!!  They are somewhat fragile but easy to give them shape.

There's my make for this week!  So wonderful that the weekend is right around the corner and because we had a statutory holiday on Monday, it came even quicker!  Again, I hope you get some crafty time and thank you so much for stopping by!

Miss Frosty

This card was a lot of fun to make!!!  I had my LemonCraft "Gossamer Blue" papers for quite some time before I finally had a chance to use them.  Oh are they ever versatile!  Love them!  I can see many more cards coming using this paper pad!  And check out that gorgeous white "Rosy Leaf" lace OH MY!!  😲

I've made a few flowers using some blue Foamiran, dabbed the center with some yellow ink, popped in some stamens and then brushed them first with gesso and sprinkled some diamond dust over top.  Actually I did that with the birch hearts and Rosy Owl leaf die as well.  OH and the Marianne doily die?  GASP!!!  Need I say more?  LOL!

This little image is Whimsy's "Miss Frosty" who I colored up with Copics.  I added some glossy accents to the berries and some more diamond dust to some of the snow.  

Another close up of a Foamiran flower with the gesso and glitter.

New to the shop this winter was the cinnamon sticks and fir springs.  Ok, those are FUN!  Again I painted on some gesso and then sprinkled with diamond dust.

You would think I may be tired of winter cards but nope!  I am tired of winter tho and WOW have we gotten our fair share here this year.  AND MORE!!  Enough I say!  LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Pion - The Songbird's Secret

Have you seen the new Pion papers yet?  Ooooooooooooo - wait - I say that every time new papers come out don't I?  LOL!  Well they sure look pretty paired up with one of the newer Dutch Doobadoo templates - Card Art A4 Window 2.  

I've added a sprig of hyacinth and a gorgeous green blossom amidst a few Wild Orchid flowers.

I tied some twine and a seam binding bow and popped a few more flowers on with a Melissa Frances resin key.  I cut the butterflies from the borders paper and added a small strand of pearls. 

On the inside I used one of Scrapiniec's stunning royal window pieces and underneath layered with Joy's Decorative Floral Frame.  I also distressed all the edges as it seems to me, that helps for a more vintage look.  I added a couple of antique corner pieces and cut out a sentiment that matches from the paper's as well.

I like using these templates for a quicker card.  You can't really add a whole lot to the front for fear of them getting top heavy.  HA HA HA!  Well maybe for me anyway.  hee hee

Thank you so much for stopping by!
