Plant Smiles

Happy Wednesday! It has been gorgeous weather here in Calgary…warm and we are gearing up for Stampede which starts on Friday! Cannot wait. ūüôā ¬†YEEEHAW!

Penny’s Paper Crafty has a new challenge up this week! As always it’s anything goes and this week’s sponsor is

DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY!

The winner gets $10 to spend at the store!

Here is my card today using some images from the garden collection.  There are a lot of different images in this collection and you should stop by the blog and see what the rest of the DT has created as some of the other girls have used some of the other images!

I decided to use the two planters and the gloves for my card.  dav

 

The background floral paper is from my stash, that I got in a swap. ¬†I printed out the planters on some DP and then cut them out but you could just as easily print it out on white an color it. ¬†I added just a variety of different flowers from my stash . ¬†The gloves I printed out on some textured Sizzix paper that I have had forever…I wanted it to look like old worn leather gardening gloves. ¬†The sentiment is from Paper Smooches (Perky Plants). I hope you like it and hope to see you play along!

UYS Challenge #257 Spring is in the Air!

Morning all!  I am fresh-ly back from an amazing weekend spent with the uber-talented ladies of Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine and their 2nd annual Crop & Create Calgary.  What an amazing time and the love and inspiration these ladies share with us is just incredible, not to mention their AMAZING sponsors!

Today for our Spring is in the Air Challenge on the Use Your Stuff blog I want to share a layout that I created over the weekend in Vicki Boutin’s Cluster’s, Bubbles and Layers, Oh My! Class. ¬†In this class, Vicki walked us through some fun techniques for creating little clusters and adding dimension with layers and (your friend) foam dots! ¬†We used an amazing kit of papers and embellishments from Pink Paislee’s Moonstruck collection. ¬†This collection is not normally colors that I work with but after creating some amazing layouts I really do love it!

This is the single layout that we created and I thought that those beautiful fussy cut flowers are a perfect indicator of spring.  We used an awesome technique with black paint and dishsoap Рblowing bubbles (so much fun!) that you can see on the white cardstock layer.

This layout also used a bunch of rub ons from the collection (I had forgotten how much fun rub ons can be) as well as some of the ephemera pack!
