Crafty Card Gallery: You Make Everything Bloom

Hi everyone! I am back to share a card I created from the Crafty Card Gallery blog and this month’s challenge is flowers. I went with pre-made card from K and Company. All I had to do was fold the card in half and the base of my card was ready to decorate. I had actually started this card several months ago. I had added the doily and then put it aside.

I cut from the Beaded Circles Spellbinders die a circle in a bright patterned yellow cardstock and adhered it on the doily. I added various scraps of patterned cardstock on top of the doily and circle.

I printed the garden girl from the computer and fussy cut out and added a line of glue down the middle of the image. and placed on the card. I didn’t want to add glue all over because I need to be able to add flowers, thread and tulle under the image. I punched leaves and small of the flowers from cardstock and shaped and adhered around the girl.

The sentiment is a stamp from Unity Stamp Company. I stamped, cut and adhered to the top corner of the card. I added another flower along Dew Drops and pearl sprays to finish off the card.

Also I would like to submit my card to the following challenges:
And as always if you have any questions about this card please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by hope your Saturday is awesome and enjoy creating!

Easter Joy Tea Cup

Hi everyone! Is everyone ready for Spring??? Blooming flowers, longer days and warmer weather…I know I am. I have been on a creating frenzy of fun springy, flowery, Eastery crafty goodness and I want to share one of my latest creations.
I used the tea cup template and I printed on Purple Ant Glitter Cardstock which is from the Robin’s Nest and their whole Spring Collection is 20% off this month. Before running the cardstock through the printer I cut the ants off. Once printed I cut out and glued together. The paper doily I adhered to the saucer and glued the tea cup on top of that.
Also this month we are cross promoting with Altered Pages and we received some fun vintage digital images to play with. This bunny is from the Vintage Easter Garden Collection which I am just giddy over. I printed this on a piece of textured white cardstock which to me looks like it has been printed onto a canvas. I did fussy cut the bunny out and I saved the Easter Joys be Yours to make a tiny sign out of.
The outside of the tea cup I glued buttons, sequins and dew drops around the lip. I waded up a piece of tissue paper and adhered it inside the bottom of the tea cup and then glued the bunny to it. Then the real fun began by adding moss, tiny plastic eggs which I doctored up with glitter, paper flowers with gems and dew drops added.
I cut rosettes from the Spring Stripe Glitter Cardstock ,which is double sided, and added a sequin, dew drop and the little sign.

A tip if you have some of the store bought flowers that has many layers you can carefully take them apart and make flower buds with them. Also I added Crystal Stickles around the edges of the flowers for a glittery look.

I love the look of the bunny…so vintage!!! 🙂

Well, I hope you enjoyed my little tea cup I created and if you have any questions please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Thursday is wonderful and enjoy creating!!!
