A Little Color Of Happy

Happy Friday All,

Deborah here sharing a Birthday card I made for this months theme – Female Birthday.  
Do you have any special “female” family members or friends you need a Birthday card for within the next few months?? Well the card I am sharing today is a card you can make using any thing you have on hand. As long as you have few sheets of patterned paper, punch, brads or color sprays.  
I made this easy card today using a square punch, corner punch and a border punch, and Recollections brads,a couple of DCWV paper stack and a A2 card (pre-embossed) from their card/envelope stack. I also used Prima Bloom Sprays. (All supplies listed below)
For the card I made below I did use a sketch from DCWV blog. 
Here is my card: 
I sprayed the outside of my card first with my Color Bloom Sprays, set aside to dry. 
I punched out 10 squares and used my corner punch on opposite side of the 
squares for the odd shape, and layered. 
I used the Martha Stewart Daisy Edge punch, wrapped pink twine around 4 times. 
Fussy cut the flower, the brown border flag with the
orange sentiment. Used 5 Recollections brads – 1 on flower & 4 on the
punched border. 
Supplies:

Papers – DCWV – Collage Art paper stack; the Celebration paper stack (Happy Birthday sentiment only); DCWV – A2 card/envelope stack (pre-embossed)
Inks – Prima Color Bloom Sprays – Cotton Candy, Soft Teal; Iris
Accessories – Recollections brads- Fall; Martha Stewart – Daisy edge punch; Corner punch;pink twine from stash

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?

Thanks for joining me today and for stopping by. Please poke around our site to see some other wonderful creations my teamies made, you definitely will get inspired.

Celebration Seeds

Hi everyone! It is me, Tonya and I would like to share a card I created for Crafty Card Gallery and this month’s theme is flowers. What I created isn’t a card but a little gift bag which you can put a card inside, gift card or something fun.
I started out with a 5″x7 1/2″ Large Paper Bag which I cut the “flap” off and punched the top of the bag with a decorative punch. Cut and adhered a 5″x5″ piece from the Take Our Breath Away Gypsy Moments Cardstock and ink the edges with green chalk ink. Then I adhered a Black Bookmark off center of the bag.

I cut the Best Wishes image from the Seed Packets on Ivory Cardstock. I love this collection. You can leave it as is or add paint/color to the image.

I used pop dots to raise the image off of the bag. I also used thread,l tulle, lace, pearl sprays, paper flowers and buttons to finish off the bag. I hope you like what I created and if you have any questions please let me know.

Supplies Used:
Other Supplies:Pink and Lime Green Thread, Lace, Tulle, Buttons, Paper Flowers, Martha Stewart Edge Punch, Pearl Sprays, Chalk Ink
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Saturday is awesome and enjoy creating!
