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

Paper – Blue Fern – Blush

Valentine’s Day Banner

Hi all,

Deborah here with a Valentine’s Day share. I know Valentine’s is over, but our Theme for this month is Love/Sweets so I made a banner for Valentine’s Day and thought I would share.

For my banner I used an old tag that I traced on Kraft cardstock and then cut out. I placed eyelets at the top of the tags and ran lace through each one.
Supplies I used:
Embossing folder – dots
Paper – Blue Fern – Blush
Martha Stewart Punches
Prima – frames that I sprayed with color bloom sprays – cotton candy
Buttons from Buttons Galore
From my stash – lace, white pearls, feathers are from Joanns, wooden bird,
Vellum Valentine’s Day from Quick Quotes
Reneabouquets – butterflies (just gorgeous) & Chunky Glitter Glass – Sand & Glass Microbeads – Gold
Tim Holtz – Remnant Rubs – Botanical & Apothecary and Sizzix Thinlits/TH Celebrate – sentiments die “happy”
I shaded around each tag with PowderPuff – Very Berry.

I sprayed the frame with Color Bloom – Cotton Candy to give a little pink affect. 
I placed glue around the inside of the frame and then 
used Reneabouquet glass microbeads – Gold and let it dry. Also used the
TH Remnant Rubs “LOVE”inside the frame. Added a feathers and a button.
 Here I added a wooden bird I colored with a brown marker and added 
gold stickles to the wings. I also added sentiments from the TH
Remnant Rubs and drew a heart. The white butterfly is from Reneabouquets.
I used a Prima frame and added some pink paint on the from and added some 
Reneabouquet Chunky Glitter Glass – Sand on top of the pink areas. 
 Again I added TH Remnant Rubs female silhouette. A little pink flower
I had in my stash.
 On the first tag I used Sizzix Thinlits/TH Celebrate – sentiments die “happy” 
and a Vellum sentiment from Quick Quotes. 
There is a heart shaped button and a little pink flower from my stash. 
2nd Tag – has some feathers and heart shaped  button from Buttons Galore. 

Well I hope you found some inspiration today. With Easter coming up I think this might be a great idea to use as well, don’t you think?
