Welcome to Spring Card with a Sneak Peek to the next Catalog

 I think I say this every time but the upcoming catalog is good one.  You are going to love it.  This is just one on the new stamp sets and it's called Happy Everything. This one will be available on April 1st. no fooling!
Don't forget

Because our stamps are clear and pliable you can fit the to different shapes.  Here I bent it to follow the the banner shape then I applied the block on top.

I love the Pint then Cut on my Cricut Explore.  You can see how beautiful the Butterfly is.  I cut the honeycomb shape from the Cricut Artbooking cartridge.  I use the hide contour and and randomly took out some of the honeycombs.  I really liked how that looks.  The doily shape is cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge and so is the banner shape.

It really is a pretty simple card and not much to it.  But I like the way it came out.  How about you? 
The Butterfly looks like he is ready to fly away.  Humm I think I see another project in my mind...

All products used were Close To My Heart.

Cardstocks are Sweet Leaf, Sunset, Honey, Glaiser
Inks are  Black, Glaiser, Sweet Leaf

Fast Batik Card using CTMH C1607 Someone Special

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
I love Batik fabrics and when I saw this stamp set C1607 Someone Special I knew exactly what I would make with it.  It was a very fast and easy card to make.  I just stamped off the overlay flower and used the 2nd and 3rd generation on the card

I used Gold polka dot Washi tape and some bling.  I stamped the flower both the mat and the overlay on a separate piece of Daisy White along with the leaves then I just used thick 3D Foam Tape behind the flower and the thin behind the leaves.  I sponged around everything in Sunset.  Then stamped the sentiment and that was it.  I backed it with Black and then placed it on a Kraft card.  I put everything that I used in the picture.  Well I guess I forgot the paper trimmer!!!  But really that is it.  

Inks are
     Honey, Sunset, Olive, Black

Mini Album

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...At Christmas we used the Yule Tide paper pack to make this Mini Album  but Tess use Snowhaven and other papers from her stash to make this for a time friend.  I love what she did.

Here it is open and what a great job she did.  It has lots of pockets and tags.  She used heart for her tag holder.
I love it when my friends bring me things that they have made. I have been trying to put them on my blog to share them with you too.  Great job Tess keep it up.

Graphic 45 Time To Flourish

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...Brenda one of my friends made a star card made with Graphic 45 Time To Flourish paper.  I love how it turned out.  Brenda wanted to make it so she could use year after year.  I suggested a pocket that she could slip a calendar in and out of.   Here is what she came up with.
The cover

Here is the pocket she made that holds the calendar.  Now she can just change the calendar each year.

Here is why it's called a star card.

KARD Swap for March

Here are all my cards that I am taking to this month's card swap.  For a change I was done early.  Can you guess this month's theme it is Teddy Bear.  Mine is cut with me Cricut Explore.  I used the pint then cut feature on the Bear and the Bee.  I love those feature.   You can use this on any image you just use the flatten icon and you then have a print the cut image.  It's so easy!  You should try it. I printed them out on Colonial White cardstock.

I did a Google image search for the bear tag.  They had 12 different ones so that way everyone will get something different. I just printed them on copy paper and cut them out by hand. 
The bling is from CTMH and the stamp set  is
The banner is from page 66 of the Cricut Artiste cartridge

I was not able to go to this months card swap but here is what I got back.  I don't have any info on any of the cards but they are so cute and all so different.  Sometimes it is just fun to set them all up and enjoy them.  So here they all are.  If you want any info on them let me know and I will get it for you.
