Butterfly Thanks

Here's another card from my "Dreamin' Big" card workshop.  I pinned a card on Pinterest a long time ago and finally used it as my inspiration.  You can see that card HERE.

Isn't it fun?  I just love these colors in the "Dreamin' Big" paper pack.  It reminds me that flowers and better weather are just around the corner, right?

The "thanks" is a Thin Cut.  I cut the word twice in black and layered them on top of each other.  I think it gave the word a bit more depth in person.  I also added two strips of black & white "Jeepers Creepers" washi tape.  The tape is not currently in the catalog but it is still available on my website under the "Going Soon" tab.

I also used inspiration from a fellow consultant Nancy Ball and used a black journaling pen on my butterflies.  I think it makes them pop more, especially with this "Dreamin' Big" paper.

Isn't this a cute set?  I'm looking forward to making many more cards with this set.  I especially like that I have the matching Thin Cuts to make cutting those bugs out just that much easier.

Well, that's all for now.  Stop by again soon to see more of the cards from my workshop.  Ciao!

I think you are Tea-rrific!

Oh my, I've been MIA on my blog since October!  Yikes!  Life goes by so quickly sometimes.

Well, March is almost over and I wanted to share a card I created using the March Stamp of the Month called "Tea-rrific".  It's such a fun set.  It's great for Mother's Day or for a friend that loves tea.  It's great for coloring or paper piecing.

Many of my regulars in my card class do not need Mother's Day cards so I opted for one of the other sayings for this card.

Fun, right?  I paper pieced the teacup and saucer and used our Shin Han markers on the flower and tea bag tag.

The scalloped circle was popped up and the teacup was popped up on top of that as well.  The tag was attached with a little piece of baker's twine and a couple of bitty sparkles were added for a little bling.

I hope you enjoyed this card.  Thanks for stopping by!
