Sing...Spring Card and Happy Bunny ATC

It's Spring in the valley and even if its been cold the birds are back to remind us that 
the season of new beginnings and fresh growth is upon us! 

Today I'm sharing a CAS card using a favorite Quietfire Design stamp set,
The Woods Would be Very Silent...

For this card I used a LT blue premade base and punched the flowers on RH corner.
First mask the punched corner then using the Gingham wheel and 
Crisp Cantaloupe to add the ribbon effect, also stamp envelope flap at this time. 
Stamp the Chickadee with Burnt Sugar and the Sing...sentiment in Tempting Turquoise.
Used markers to colour Chickadee and add twine to complete.

Easter Bouquet & Egg Hunt Photos

My Easter bouquets this year included a few different types of Daffodils. 
These came from a roadside stand a few kilometers down the road.
 We only have the standard ones growing in the yard. 
The Forsythias are from the yard too! :)


Searching...
Success!

Have a good day!

Happy Easter Card

It's funny how the camera interprets things differently than our eyes .
Now my sweet bird looks like he's in jail, actually the lines behind 
the vellum on which the bird is stamped are not that pronounced..  :)



I appreciate your visit and wish you all a Happy Easter!

The True Harvest of My Daily Life... -Card

Hello, today I'm sharing a quick to make card, using a wonderful
quote stamp from Quietfire Design.

Instructions:
Cut a 8-1/2" x 6-1/2" pc of Core'dinations cardstock and fold in half for base, set aside.

Stamp Quietfire Design Quote on 4"x 6" pc of CS Superstock in Jet Black AI,  heat emboss with Clear EP and heat tool. 

Swipe Distress Ink pads directly on CS Superstock, start with Squeezed lemonade in center, then Wild honey over and to the right and same with Tumbled glass on left.

Allow to dry, using the 2nd largest SB Large Deckles Rectangle Die as a stencil hold on angle to quote, with  Blue jeans DI ink all around die using a dauber. Leave Die in place and allow ink to dry. Trace around die with Clear Glitter pen. Move Die to angle opposing way and again trace around this time using Black Glitter pen. 

Using Perfect pearls and a paint brush, paint swirls over only the blue areas outside of the Die tracings.
To complete run Faded jeans DI around the edge of panel, adhere to base and add Star stickers.



 Supplies used:
Quietfire Design stamp is #6355-1
+ Canadian Scrapbooker Superstock.
