Vintage Easter

I can’t believe Easter is already coming up. This year is already flying past. And I have so many Easter images to still play with!

This week I wanted to color this sweet image from Whimsy & Stars Studio. Isn’t she adorable?

2012-04-03 WSS Bunny card WM

I don’t remember if I mentioned it before, but when spraying items with glimmer mist I always put some flattened coffee filters in the box under them to catch the overspray. Letting the overspray just coat the box seems like such a waste. The coffee filters always looks so pretty and shimmery and I have big ideas on what I can do with them. (Of course up until now it was all ideas.) So for this card, I broke out my stash of shimmery coffee filters and finally used them. I die cut flowers out of my filters and then sprayed them with my Copic Airbrush system to make them the correct color. Although the photo doesn’t pick it up, IRL the flowers have a beautiful shimmer. See, I knew those coffee filters would come in handy some day. (I also sprayed the lace a bit to make it coordinate with the designer papers a little better.)

Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!

Supplies:

  • Stamps: Springtime Basket Bunny (digital stamps) from Whimsy & Stars Studio
  • Inks: Ranger Distress Ink Antique Linen

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
