Another Card

Hey Y'all!!

Here's the second card I made for Mother's Day.  I know I know...I am way behind in posting.  But, hey...better late than never!  at least the cards were not late getting to the people I made them for.  :)

I used my Spellbinders dies(Fancy Tags 3 & Donna Salazar Rose Creations), Martha Stewart Butterfly punches(Monarch & Stamp and Punch Butterfly), some vintage lace, some very old paper from my stash(Around the Block and Bazzill), an EK Success Edger punch(double crochet lace), Faded Jeans Distress Ink and a Quickutz flourish die.  I thought it turned out pretty great and I was pleased.  I decided all my Mother's Day cards were gonna be easel cards and I must  say...I really like these cards.  They stand up so well on their own to display the front of the card beautifully. 

Thanks for taking a look!!  Here's some more photos of the card.

Mother's Day Card

Hey Y'all!

So, when I sat down to write this post...I realized...I should have posted these BEFORE Mother's Day. BUT, oh well!!  I'll be sharing 3 with you that I created this year.  I decided to try and make an easel card.  I have to say.  REALLY simple and there are some great tutorials on YouTube if you'd like to try it.  Just search for Easel Card Tutorial.  If anyone would like...I can make a short one.  I didn't do exact measuring this time of course!

So here's my first card.

I used Graphic 45 Once Upon A Springtime papers.  I had these scraps left over from the fairy mini I made.  Then I used some amazing trim, but I'm not sure where I got it.  :(  I also used some rose buds and mini roses from I Am Roses.  I used brown inkadinkadoo pigment ink for distressing and some pop dots for dimension.  The butterflies are an older Martha Stewart punch and I put diamond stickles on the top.  I also used some ivory colored card stock on the inside for space to write the message in the card. 

Thanks for taking a look!!

Altered ATG Stand

Wow!!  Been so long since I've posted.  I really didn't know how long!!  Well, here for just a short post today.  I got a great ATG stand and I altered it of course to go with my scrappy room deor. 

Here's the pics

I used RED paper...just from my stash.  No IDEA who makes it.  Some Red roses and rose buds, the black bling was purchased from JoAnn's on a very small roll.  I had a coupon!!  The patterned paper is from Hobby Lobby by the Paper Studio.  I used black acrylic paint by Folk Art as well.  The red ribbon around the edges of the base was also purchased from Hobby Lobby in the Sewing Section.  I did this simple because I didn't want to have to deal with a lot of embellishments and my ATG at the same time.  When I was done, I covered the entire stand with Modge Podge Glossy to seal it.  Great way to keep your ATG right where you need it.  I purchased the stand from Ebay.  If you'd like the seller name please let me know!  Thanks for taking a peek!
