Over at Just Us Girls today’s word challenge is Spring and it’s brought to you by Sharyn. Super idea Sharyn, as that leaves things pretty wide open! I am still in the Easter mode and wanted to share with you the other two cards we made at my crafty get together at my house a couple of weeks ago. Both cards were a starting point from cards I saw over at Pinterest and I will include them at the end of my post. The above card as you can see has two pieces of marbleized paper. One of the friends had the brilliant idea to add the stems of grass peeking through….and I loved it so I went back an added it to my original card too. It’s the coolest grass die cut from Impression Obsession Stamps. ( io stamps) I made sure each one of the eggs had some sort of dry embossing on them. The scalloped grass and button is from MFT. The sentiment is something I picked up at Michaels. The bow is a die from my school. The butterfly is SU.
The card below is the other card we made that had nothing to do with the marbleized paper we made, but I needed something for the girls to start with while they waited their turn to marbleize, or while waiting for the papers to dry. Isn’t the pink pom pom so cute? I generated the sentiment on the computer, thinking this way someone could use this for something besides Easter if they wanted to. The ears were made with the SU blossom punch, thank god I found a use for it…lord knows I haven’t used it to assemble any flowers yet. LOL The rest is pretty self explanatory. Die cuts, punches, distressing, and some pop dots. The tilted panel is a stitched rectangle from MFT.
Hope you come on over to Just Us Girls and help us welcome our New Guest Designer Kathy and see what else the rest of the team has done with this challenge. Remember if your chosen as our Chic of the Week you will be in the running as a possible future Guest Designer as well. Good Luck! Nanc’
