Spring Birthday Card with Flowers and Butterflies

 Hello everyone,

I would like to share my latest make: a card for a friend's birthday.

The flowers are hand made, using Spellbinders flower dies. I inked edges with Shaded Lilac Distress Ink and added little flower stamens.

The sentiment was computer generated and die cut using Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles.

Butterflies are Cricut cuts from my stash, one of those free for a week deals...

I would like to enter my card into following challenges:

I hope you enjoyed this post.

Jack-o-lantern in a Window Card


Just wanted to show my latest make:

I created a shadow box to give a dimensional look into the window and Jack-o-lantern peaking through it.

I used crackle paint on the shutters to give it old and creepy look...

I recycled plastic cover for Cricut mat to create illusion of the glass window and egg carton for bricks around the window.

I made a flower container and added some moss and little blue flowers. Behind the window, you can see old looking drapes, made with cheese cloth that I pained with black Dilysions spray and Jack-o-lantern distressed with some black and brown ink.

I would like to enter my card into following challenges:

Ornate Poinsettia Christmas Card

 Hello everyone,

I hope this post finds you well and safe.

I would like to share one of my Christmas cards today:

I used 49 and Market Christmas cardstock and Heartfelt Creations Large Poinsettia die and stamp.

The card turned out quite dimensional and ornate, I think....

Sentiment is a generic die that I bought on Amazon, no brand name, but cuts great and looks really nice.

One more look at the finished card and box it comes with.

I would like to enter this card into Christmas Craft Creations March Challenge Christmas Flowers

I hope you enjoyed stopping by.

Take care and stay safe,
