Inkadinkado and Elizabeth Craft Garden Notes Hydrandgea Card

 Happy Wednesday everybody!  Remember my previous post?  Yeah, I was saying how Sunflowers was one of my favorite images.....well....what do you think?   Isn't this Hydrangea image the bomb?  I have used this stamp a few times in the past.....I still love it.  But I took it up another notch.  The stamp is an  old Inkadinkado and the die is Elizabeth Craft Garden Notes.
 How awesome is it that these paper hydrangeas are an embellishment?  Oh, they were so fun to make.  They were created with an Elizabeth Craft Susan's Garden Hydrangea die.  They were really easy peasy!
 The flower plate was cut out 4 times.  Distress inks were used to color the flowers and "Prills" were used for the centers.....just like the stamped image.  I love this die and see myself using it again soon.
 The stamped image was mounted on a Spellbinders die.  The corners are a Marianne die.  Thanks so much for stopping by today to check this out.  Until next time......Happy Crafting!

Stamped Sunflower Card

 Greetings friends.  One of my favorite images to craft with are Sunflowers.  I have a collection of Sunflower stamps and this is one that I colored with Copic markers quite a while ago.  Would you believe that I don't have any cards in my stash for sending to friends and loved ones.  For the next several post I will be sharing cards that are an attempt to build up my stash.  Pssst.....don't say anything, but I have been working on a couple Christmas items
 One of the best purchase I made this last year is a Brother ScanNCut.  Oh my, it sure does cut out your stamped images beautifully.  These sunflowers were cut from the main image to accent the bottom portion of the easel card.  It compliments the main focal point.
The main image is layered with extra sunflowers for depth and a 3D look.  It's mounted on a Spellbinders die.  The corners are Cheery Lynn and the top scallops are La La Land. 
Thank you so much for stopping by today to view this project.  This is going in the stash for an upcoming Birthday.  Love the bright cheerful colors and the beautiful Sunflowers to send to someone to brighten their special day.  Until next time.....Happy Crafting!

Valentine Altered Spool

Greetings Everyone!  Well this is one of those projects I forgot to post from Valentine's  Since I write my blog and post pictures of my projects to keep a history of my "Crafting Journey", I thought "hey why not post it now"!!!  lol  What you are looking at is an altered ribbon spool.  I just covered the plain cardboard with designer paper, used some lace and made some flowers to decorate it.
The darker pink roses were made with a punch and the lighter pink are rolled roses.  The little boy and girl ephemera is from K& Company.  The hearts were cut with a Spellbinders set and I also used crepe paper for the background element.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and viewing this project.  Until next time.....Happy Crafting.
