Spring Flowers at STB

Hello, I hope you are having a good week! SUPER busy one for me. It is one of those weeks where you have something to do ever single day. It is funny how that happens and how the rest of the calendar is bare. Today over at Seize the Birthday our topping is Spring Flowers. It was selected by the queen of florals herself-Tae Eun.

Card Details: Luck for me I have a dear friend that I borrowed this set from and I knew it was going to come in handy for this challenge. It is from Pretty Pink Posh and called Crocus Flowers. First, I heat embossed both the stems and the flowers in white and then came back and did a very quick watercoloring. A watercolorist I am NOT! I did a little Oxide ink and splatters on my background and the greeting is done on the computer as I am really tired of my birthday stamps and I wanted the perfect tone of lilac. A few Honey Bee Dew drops and I was done.

I am also going to link my card up over at The Flower Challenge where they are looking for Pastel Flowers.

Hope you will pop on over to STB and check out the amazing cards from the Design Team and are guest Lynda and play along! Remember the topping is optional, any type of Birthday card will do.

Happy crafting, Nanc’

Stamping Only…

Hello, Hope your day is off to a good start! Today over at Seize the Birthday Ashwini’s topping that she has chosen is “Stamping Only.”  If this topping isn’t for you, remember any kind of Birthday card and or project will do. I had to add a sequin or three to finish the card off…it needed something more.  This is card attempt number three, as the first two got trashed due to human error. LOL Don’t you just hate when you are nearly done with a card and you drop the ink pad or stamp. Not once but twice! LOL  I am not happy with this card, but I have to remember my word for the year is Simplify, so no time to start again! It’s just going to have to be good enough! The card has a mix of ZIGS, Copics and Colored Pencil.  One of the Pretty Pink Posh butterflies is just colored ink and no coloring at all.  The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up.

I really appreciate your visits.  Now, head on over to STB and check out the team’s and our guest’s work, I promise you will be MORE inspired over there. Nanc’
