March 1st already! Wow we didn't have a Winter to speak of about one inch of snow that was it. But it's not over on paper yet. So I shouldn't speak too quickly through my hat. But, it is nice to have this type of temperatures as it is very comfortable and I get my Vitamine D every day.
I had so much fun today, I had to try some new paper with mica in it, it is the same as the shimmered cardstock we are used to, only this is paper and it molds flowers so beautifully no fuss no fight to get it the way I want, it is really nice. I wanted to test it on the smallest flowers I have from Cheery Lynn Designs as well as their set of 4 vases. I did some gold embossing with my heat tool and randomly added some golden stickles.
We can never have enough Birthday card on hand for Birthdays coming up especially the ones I send cards to every year. So I have started to make more so this is my first of many to come. I hope you enjoy the look of this vase and tiny what looks like daisies. I also took the time to see what my stash of Washi paper I had in my stash. When I found the background paper for it I was so happy it was made to go with my card. The stripes I used were from a cling rubber stamp packaging that I decided to recycle. Fun fun fun to rediscover some neat paper I had stashed away a long time ago.
I had said I would show you my Apricot tree in bloom when it was completely blooming so I will take a photo of it tomorrow I also have my decorative Cherry blossom in bloom as well. This one is just starting.
Here is my latest card I hope you will enjoy it:
Fun and elegant card to make, sure was a fun afternoon for me. I had no rules to follow just letting myself come up with a simple card with a bouquet of flowers, it almost ended up with a bow, but I resisted the temptation.
Here you can see the dragonflies that were gold embossed onto the vase and the gold Stickles.
The Happy Birthday Sentiment is from my sentiment stash. I used a SU oval punch and fussy cut the black layer
Cheery Lynn Designs B376, B306 and Impression Obsession the Leafy Branch that I have cut to needed size
I hope you enjoyed this card and given you some inspiration for your future projects. Thanks for dropping in for your regular eye candy and thanks for the lovely comments.
