Can I tell you how much I love the Veranda Creative Basics paper? I used it two months in a row when cropping with my friends (Hi Sharon, Diane, and Wendy!!) First up was Thank you cards, and then the colors were perfect for Easter, too!
For the Thank you card, I used the flourish from the Felicity stamp set (January 2010 promotion). The ribbon comes with the creative basics kit- so handy! I am really into the rock-n-roll effect lately. I also 2nd generation-stamped the flourish inside and used a sentiment from Thank You. The Template is Wishes- Sentiment Secured (upside down).
I can't believe Easter is around the corner, but at least I have one card made! Same paper, different effect! The stamp set is Easter Eggs (Feb. 2009 SOTM), and I used Eastertime for the inside (more rock-n-roll coloring, surprise surprise)! I used the corner rounder to scallop the edge, and of course, had to bling it up a bit! The template is based on Wishes- All Stacked Up, but I changed it a little to fit the card dimensions.
Spring has sprung and I am getting the creative "itch"! Just wanted to share a cute 3x3 card that I made for two of my friends. They hold a small sheet of Bitty Sparkels (which is currently my favorite embellishment!) I also had to use the March SOTM, A Little Everything. I LOVE this font so I am sure you are going to see it again in my posts! I also had to break out those little butterflies in the new Just Blooms- with of course, Sparkles!! Happy Creating!
I love sharing my fun artwork and will try to give credit if one of these ideas is "Scraplifted" or Inspired by a different artist or CTMH Consultant. If you use any of these ideas here, all I ask is that you do the same. As imitation is the greatest form of flattery, I grant permission to use any of my ideas for your own personal use. However, please do not use ANY of this work (ideas, pictures, etc) for use to submit to publications, contests, or to sell. Thank you!
