I Heart Spring


Happy Thursday! Hope you had a wonderful one and didn't get fooled on April fools day  LOL! TGIF tomorrow... yay! I have so much in the works, got a busy weekend ahead of me. So I wont keep you... First I would like to share that my card HERE was featured on the Bo Bunny blog HERE. I love their challenges and all their goodies! :)

Secondly I would like to share with you a set of cards I did, I love the 3x3 and everyone loved the last ones I did so I thought I would make another set for spring and for Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger: Hippity Hoppity Easters on its Way! They fit the colors and patterns well. I really love this stamp set from Hero Arts.







And while I was at it I thought I would show how I put these cards together. Im sure you can tell from the pictures but I would love to share with you anyway... plus allot of calls for DT's some of them ask that you have given a tutorial before so here goes my first:

First I inked up my stamp with Tim Holtz distress inks, you can choose any colors you want to use to make these. I chose several different colors.


This is what they should look like all stamped and pretty, then take your same distress ink and your distress tool and run it along the edges of the flowers which it always distresses darker so it gives it a nice look.


Next I spritzed on some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Pearl and dried it quicker with my heat gun. I always spray mine in a box so I dont make a huge mess.


Next I got to play with my button collection and added some buttons to these cuties, my favorite part of putting these together (I love buttons) :D


Next I cut my Kraft cardstock 3x6 (folded it to 3x3) with my bone folder


Then I took my PTI white ink and stamped my leaves, sentiment and butterfly.


I pieced my card together, using pop dots on the flowers. Added a swirly trail for the butterfly with my gel pen then took my distress tool again and my PTI white and gave the edges a soft frame.

Card recipe:
Stamps: Hero Arts CL151 Share Laughter, PTI Mixed Messages
Paper: PTI Kraft, PTI Stampers White
Ink: PTI white, Tim Holtz distress inks
Accessories: PTI buttons, Glimmer Mist

Clean up and enjoy! :) Hope you enjoyed my lil tutorial.

I will be back this weekend with more details of the upcoming challenges and prizes! :)  Off to bed again... have a wonderful Friday! TGIF!
