Spring Scrap Card #2 ~ Spring Stash Project #5

Back again with the second version of the Spring card using a 2" x 3" scrap of card...

Taking the same design I switched the color to match the reverse side of the Doodlebug Designs cardstock. I added buttons and stamped the inside of the card.

By changing the little details you can use the same design or concept and create very different cards...

Try to switch
  •  color of cardstock used
  • color of accessories
  • greeting
  • opening direction
  • paper designs
  • and so much more...
Products Used:
White Cardstock
Doodlebug Designs Cardstock
My Peeps Stamp Set
Yellow Ribbon (Michaels)
Ink - Archival Black
      - Sunny Yellow
Various Prismacolor Markers
Martha Stewart Corner Punch

Hope you get to put some of these options to work next time you are looking to add a little variation to your cards.

Happy Spring Card ~ Spring Stash #3

I have seen flowers created with ric rac and had always wanted to try to make them but never had...until now!

I took some pink ric rac and a 1 1/4" circle punch and cardstock. I punched the circle and used hot glue to adhere the ric rac to the circle. I figure that the product Glubers by Cosmo Cricket {available in circle and strips} would be perfect to use to create many varieties of flowers ~ without burning your fingers!

I used a die cut card and some Doodlebug Designs cardstock for my card. The yellow polka dot cardstock is from my own stash and my Close To My Heart Stamp set is one of my favorites. I stamped my greeting, the duck and the umbrella. I added Liquid Glass and Prisma Glitter to the umbrella. I added a jeweled brad and some pretty ribbon.

I am hoping to create a cute mini album out of this card but as of's a card.

Products Used:
CTMH Colonial White Die Cut Card
Doodlebug Designs Cardstock
CTMH "Dotty For You" Cardstock
CTMH Pink Ric Rac Ribbon
Springtime Stamp Set ~ D1415
Sweet Leaf Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon
Liquid Glass
Designer Rhinestone Brad
Prisma Glitter

Hope you check back to see what else I have been up to...

{Egg Hunt Layout}

~ Spring Stash Project #2 ~

Since my first project wasn't very Spring related I decided to use the Jenni Bowlin Bingo tag I recieved in my bonus goodies from Alicia at Down A Dirt Road Scrapbooking and use it for part of my title. I needed to gather products to use that went well with the tag so I chose to use some Lucy paper from Close To My Heart.

I grabbed a sheet of Lucy cardstock and started to plan my layout. I somehow thought argyle and cut out an argyle pattern with my Cricut and Art Philosophy Cartridge.

 I decided I haven't stitched a layout in a while and so I started to stitch a zig zag pattern in pink and green embroidery thread. Now I had to decide on how to use my bunny stamps. I stamped them and colored them. I added Liquid Glass to add texture and a glossy look to each and topped them up onto a scallop circle.

Now I decided spring and Easter needs flowers and I'm so over winter and snow I started stamping flowers and then instead of coloring them I added pastel vellum that was also stamped and adhered over the flowers. I started to add jewels and placed them onto the layout.

Only thing missing was a photo...

Hurry up E.B. (Easter Bunny) we need some eggs to hunt!
