Spellbinders Springtime


Oh Happy Day! Walking the dog every morning I'm noticing more and more people spending more time outdoors, planting flowers and just enjoying life! Springtime makes the whole world come alive with color!
  
Today I'm playing with a Spellbinders die I picked up a while ago. I love cards with scenes and this little die set had so many little images perfectly coordinated to work together.

I'm part Dutch so the windmill and tulips had even more significance for me. I'd love to go to Holland some day to see them in bloom. A girl can dream right?

I die cut the images from colorful card stock scraps and adhered them on a Spellbinders Picot Petite Oval. To add a little more color I layered that on a stacked background of blue mats to match the windmill.
I'm linking this card up to Creative Knockouts where they're asking that you Add Flowers this time. I'm always happy to do that! Flowers are my favorite! Hugs and have a great day!

Winter Birthday


Hi Friends! I hope you're having a great day! Today I'm sharing a card made with the new Pretty Little Studio Frosty Collection.
This collection is great for Christmas, Winter and YES! Even a Winter Birthday too!
  
I topped pattern paper with a Snow Angel Frame. I added a sweet deer from the same pack in the center of the frame. The frame is embellished with a sentiment flair and a Snow Cream flag.
A fuzzy socks tab in coordinating pink is tucked under the frame on the left and lots of stickers add contrast and interest .

This collection celebrates the magic of winter in the most beautiful way. I hope you'll check out this amazing collection!

Birthday Fishes and Underwater Wishes

Sending you best fishes and underwater greetings today! Making some punny scenes couldn't be easier than with the new Poppystamps whittles.
My cards always start with images arranged on a piece of plastic the size of my card base. I can play around with arrangement and decide on what colors I want to use before I commit. The clear plastic sheet allows me to slide different colors underneath to coordinate the designs.
The single cover with a stamped sentiment looked a little flat to me so I added two more layers of cardstock underneath. I wanted to mimic the layers of shades and shadow you might see in an underwater scene.
The Whittle Seascape is double cut to add more dimension to the design. The fish are cut from rainbow colors and adhered with adhesive foam tape. I added some silly eyes to the Whittle Happy Octopus, and some Memory Box Fairy Drops are underwater b
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
