Spring Blog Hop

I was asked to take part in a Spring Blog Hop with some of my papercrafting friends and I'm really excited to share a couple of spring creations with you today!
Life Is Good Wall Hanging
I was inspired to create this after seeing the one By Katie Watson in the Feb/Mar issue of "Simply Handmade" so it's not an original idea but I did change it up a bit...
I recycled some heavy weight chipboard from the inside of an old binder to make the wall hanging it's self and then painted it a pale blue. The houses were designed with the Graphically Speaking Cricut cartridge and my DS software and cut from lightweight chipboard and pattern paper. I used Pooh & Friends to cut Sun, Tree & Kite..
Paper: Basic Grey "Lemonade"
Misc: EK Border punch, BG buttons,Offray ribbon,TAC eyelets, DMC floss, Thickers glittered chipboard letters, Zip Dry glue
Beautiful Butterfly Card
I used the butterfly from my Home Accents cartridge and cut 2 sizes that would nest and removed the antenna from the smaller butterfly with my Kai detail scissors. I scored along the side of each body so the wings would be 3-D then I adhered the smaller butterfly in the center with a glue line and placed 2 buttons over that. The base card was stamped with VersaMark and a retired TAC hostess stamp set called "Be Of Good"... I used a 7/8"coral ribbon to finish it!
The inside is 2 layers of pattern paper and white cardstock that have been punched with my corner rounder and then stamped with a butterfly image from the same set in pink grapefruit ink.
Paper: Basic Grey "Porcelain" , Bazzill green cardstock
Stamps: The Angel Company "Be Of Good" TC-310
Misc: BG buttons,VersaMark, VersaMagic ink, EK corner rounder,
Offray ribbon,Glue lines
I hope I have inspired you create some spring projects of your own...

Day 7 ~ Super Sketchy Sunday

Today's challenge on 365 card's is this sketch by Pam, here is my interpretation and I think it is rather lose at that! I got this wonderful new border punch & couldn't resist using it and those little yellow buttons were such a great finishing touch!
The paper is Lemomade by Basic grey and this card was inspired by a negative house shape that I had in my scrap pile... It's so great to use those scraps up!!
The sentiment is a new A Hostess Stamp from TAC called "Bless Your Heart"
Be sure and stop by over at 365 cards and see the rest of the great cards inspired by this sketch.
Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a great day!

Day 6 ~ Stampin' Saturday

Today's challenge on 365 Card's is to create a stamped image using more than one color of ink. This means that the ink must be applied to the stamp before pressing it on the paper - as opposed to coloring in an image with markers.
Be sure and head over and check out the Beautiful Card by New Designer Heidi Stock!
The image on my card was stamped with Iris Palette ink then I used Violete around the edges... The paper is Basic Grey Wisteria, T-2950 Go Abroad stamp set, Lemonade Blossoms & Buttons.. Thanks for stopping by!

Pam these challenges have really got my mojo going... thanks!!!

Day 3 ~ String Art

Well it's day 3 over at 365 cards and I seem to be on a roll with the challenges so far... But today Pam I was really stumped with what to do!! Well I spent some time googling String Art like you and found this amazing template for a stitched card over at Pinbroidery so here is the link for you to download a free pattern.

This was really a Fun card to make!
I used DMC floss for my string art and added pearls to the centers for a touch of elegance; the stamped sentiment is from this wonderful new Hostess set "Bless Your Heart" email me if you would like to know how you can get yours. The piece has been mounted on Wisteria from Basic Grey.
