Roses & A Cup of Tea

Good Morning ya’all,

Hope you had a fabulous weekend. Today I am sharing an ATC that is a shabby chic look. Hope you all like it as our them this Month is “Flowers”, which is perfectly fitting with spring in the air, right?

ATC’s are Artist Trading Cards which measure 2 1/2 by 3 1/2. I making these little cards as they do not take a lot of time and there is not a lot of room. So they are something quick and easy to create when you want to craft but don’t have a lot of time.

Here is what I did to accomplish this ATC –

I used Blue Fern paper collection – Blush cut my base down to 2 1/2 by 3 1/2, fussy cut the teacup, bird & flower and heart with the little message inside the teacup. I added glossy accents to the heart and teacup. Crystal stickles to the fussy cut rose. Liquid pearls white to to the metal key and Say it with Pearls by Want 2 Scrap – white pearls in the corner and left side. I adhered lace in the middle of the card and placed the Prima Rose along with the gold heart button and fussy cut heart, teachp and other items ontop of the Lace from Reneabouquets, and the glitter glass is adhered on the background and placed my Reneabouquet butterfly to finish it off. I did distress the edges of the paper and used TH distress inks broken china & spun sugar around the card.

 Here you can see the Glitter Glass in the background 
You can notice the white liquid pearls I placed 
in the center of the Key and the little lace heart
peeking through

Designer Beth ~ August Challenge “Polka Dots”

Hi, Beth here from The Crafty Scrap Yard!
Today, we’re sharing with you our “challenge” for this month with Crafty Card Gallery design team. 

For this challenge we we’re asked to focus on:   
Polka dots! Inspired by a pedicure?



Here is our card:

When this challenge was posted I knew I had to do something with ladybugs; they have dots!  When you ask people what are some of your favorite things or what type of things do you collect as a hobby sometimes you will hear “ladybugs”.  

I don’t collect ladybugs myself, I’ve just always liked them.  I also liked this open window style of card.

More details about our card can be found on our blog at here.
