Floral Spring Card

Usually this time of year brings the site of spring flowers in my yard. With the unusual weather we have experienced here in upstate NY, many flowers bloomed early this year and now we are having a cold snap, threatening to kill the remaining blooms. Since I don't currently have any pretty flowers to look at in my yard, I decided to create a card featuring flowers instead.

This card uses 2 files from Shelly's Art - Card Base 1 and Spring Watering Can Digi. All of the papers are from my scrap bin, so I am unsure of most of the brands. I printed the digital stamp on a blue mica/metallic paper from the Paper Temptress. It has a great sheen that even shows through the markers. I don't have great markers, or great coloring skills for that matter, but I like how it turned out. The sentiment is from stamps by K Andrew Designs. I also added some Stickles on the spout of the watering can to mimic water drops.

Baby Shower Card

Sorry it has been so long since I posted. My life is finally settling into a routine and I am finding the desire (and time) to craft again. So be on the lookout for lots of posts in the near future.

Today I want to share a card I made for a baby shower. It uses a fabulous file from Sam & Hailey Designs (Baby Shower Animals Card). The background paper is from DCWV's Nana's Nursery Baby Boy. I used brown embossing puffs on the lion's mane. The umbrellas are mounted with foam tape and the handles are made from wire. Then I gave each of the animals some googly eyes.

Here is a closeup so you can see some of those details better.
