St. Patrick's Day Card

We've got a DT Reveal up today at the Just Imagine Crafts Blog. The theme was all things green. Perfect for St. Patty's Day.

For this card I started with a green background and punched the edge using Kreaxions punch #920. Then I stamped the swirlys with Versamark ink and embossed them (for some reason they look black in the photo). I stamped and embossed the shamrocks with black ink and mounted them on gold and white paper and popped them up on the card. It seemed like too much green so I added the orange twine.

Please stop by our blog and check out all the other cards in our DT reveal.

Acetate Easter Card

Here's another Easter card for one of my granddaughters.

I have such a hard time making Easter cards for kids so I was very happy when I found these little felt chicks. The polka dot paper is really clear acetate with pink polka dots. I love how it looks on this card. The rest of the paper was from my scrap pile. Using the acetate makes it hard to photograph. No matter what I tried I got a reflection. Oh well!!!

Happy Scrapping!

Easter Card

I've got an Easter card up today on the Just Imagine Crafts blog. Isn't that little bunny so cute!

The doily was made using Kreaxions punch #920 with insert A and the star stencil. To punch the decorative corners I again used Kreaxions punch #920 with insert C.

Thanks for stopping by!

I've got a Sunday Card sketch challenge up today at Turtle Soup. We're having a March Sketchathon this month so please stop by and check out all the awesome card and layout sketches.

Here's today's sketch

And here's my take on it

I really had fun with this. I spread a light coat of gesso on the background paper to lighten it up, then mixed texture paste with some orange gelato and used a stencil to apply it. After it dried, I sprayed some white color shine on to give it a bit of sparkle and then distressed the edges. Added some washi tape, twine and a hello sticker. 

So, if you like sketches please stop by Turtle Soup and play along!

Butterfly Hello

I've got a card up today on the Just Imagine Crafts blog.

I used Kreaxions punch # 920 with insert C to make the decorative corners. To make the doily I used the star stencil and Kreaxions punch #920 with insert A and then cut it in half. I then used the negative star pieces along the top and bottom. I stamped and embossed the sentiment and added the punched butterflies. All these papers came from an old Mariposa paper stack I've had for ages. I like it but always forget I have it.
