Time to post what I've been working on this weekend. It ended up being kind of a low key, lazy weekend, which was a nice way to end spring break. I know my daughters are not ready to go back to school, but I think I am ready to get back to my usual routines.
First up is a card I have had in my head for over a week now--a tall and skinny birthday card for the toppings option of Seize the Birthday. I am also linking this card up at Less is More where the theme is up up and away.
I don't know why I don't make more cards in this shape. It is a nice change, and will fit perfectly in a standard A10 envelope. I die cut and stamped a bunch of balloons in an assortment of bright and happy colors and used a birthday sentiment from SSS Handwritten Borders as the string. I had the confetti die cut left over from an older project and I pretty much adhered it where it fell when I sprinkled it.
Next up is a fun little tag I made for Tag You're It #19. My friend Jeanne is the inspiration this week, and so I had to play along. I was inspired by Jeanne's use of die cuts and patterned papers--vintage classic Jeanne. I even used the same Basic Grey paper as she did. My stamps and dies are from PTI Songbirds.
Next up is one more card using the same stencil and sketch for Happy Little Stampers as I used on this card. I went bright yellow and pink on white for this card and added some texture with the Linen Impression Plate.
Last up are two cards inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch #119. I love this sketch. I whipped up these two cards so quickly, and I have more ideas but no more time.
This first card is PTI Year of Flowers Gladiolus. You can't see in the photo, but I sprayed shimmer over all the card, after water coloring the flowers and leaves with Distress inks. I am also entering this card at AAA Cards #37 It's Springtime, Curtain Call Bouquet Challenge, and Paper Players 241: Clean and Simple Watercolor.
And finally, a more literal interpretation of the sketch--to replenish my stash of sympathy cards. I cut the SSS All Season's Tree out of Spring Moss and perched a few Memory Box Resting Birds cut from Saharah Sand paper.
That's it for me. Here comes Monday.
Thanks for Visiting
