Mother's Day is right around the corner and one of my favorite cards to create is for this special occasion!  

So without further hesitation I wanted to share a Mother's Day Card with you!   For this card I used one die from 
 Scrapy Land.

Tutti Designs Flowery Heart 


  








To create this card, I used a card base sized A4.

Die cut one heart fro pale pink card stock.   The patterned paper is simply different sizes of squares and rectangles layered on on another.  You can create any layering pattern you desire.  
I added a piece of card board behind one of the layers to give the card dimension and a place to tuck flowers and leaves.  
Distress all you edges and then ink. 
As you begin your layering tuck a piece of lace and cheesecloth in between the layers for a shabby look. 
I stamped my sentiment with Versa mark and then embossed with Champagne colored embossing powder. The butterflies are fussy cut from some free printables I found online.  I simply cut them and added Stickles to give them some shimmer.

 Ad  Pearl Adhesive gems and to the small flowers on the heart, ink the edges add flowers and ribbon as shown and you're finished!!!


Be sure to check out the Scrapy Land Challenge on our blog and follow the directions to play along!
Scrapy Land has so many beautiful dies to choose from and a $10 gift certificate will go a long way!

Altered Paintbrush

Hellos friends! Yesterday was National Scrapbook Day so I decided to get messy and have some fun!  I made my first altered paint brush using lots of Finnabar and Prima products.  Oh my goodness!!  I'm addicted!  It was so much fun!  So let me share my paint brush with you.








My scrap room is decorated in Turquoise and Aquas (my favorite colors) so this brush is now hanging in my room.

So I went to Michael's a while back and bought what I thought I might need and of course Finnabar has so many gorgeous products that I had the worst time choosing! Can't wait for next weekend to alter something!!  


As always Thanks for stopping by my blog!!

I don't know about you but I have Spring fever!  In Wyoming Spring fever usually means the return of SNOW!!!  And usually lots of it! March, April and May are very snowy!!  The good thing is it's wet snow and goes away fast and greens everything up.We are currently having some beautiful weather but in a few days it will change back to snow.  It's always just enough to tease us, however I can hang out in my craft room and scrap the day away!!

So without further hesitation I wanted to share a  Spring Card!  For this card I used 2 dies from Scrapy Land 

Tutti Designs Spring Gate and Poppystamps Weeping Willow Branch
Poppystamps - Dies - Weeping Willow Branch
Tutti Designs - Dies - Spring Gate
I wanted to keep this card fairly easy and clean.





This card was very easy to create, I simply used a white A4 card base and die cut 1 shape from each of the dies from white card stock.  Cut a wood grain patterned paper background and adhere it to your card base.
I colored the Poppystamps Weeping Willow Branch with Distress Ink and a dauber and did the same with the Tutti Designs Spring Gate.  Adhere them to the front of the card as shown.  Add your flowers and Sentiments to the front of the card and you're finished!!!
This card is super fast and can be made for any occasion!
