Springtime Showers

Hi everyone, Deanna here again with another inspirational project for you.  Here is what I made.

My card is white card stock cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card.  My papers are from the Echo Park Sunny Days Ahead paper pack.  My blue mat is cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and my patterned paper is cut at 3 3/4" X 5".  I layered my mats together them stamped my sentiment on a piece of the blue paper cut to 1 1/4" x 3 3/4".  My sentiment is from the CardzTV Spring Fling stamp set.

Hello Spring!

Hi there, Deanna here with another inspirational post for the CadrzTV Gallery.  Here is what I have for you today.

For my card I started with some white card stock that was cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base.  I cut my butterflies using a Memory Box die and some aqua paper. Next I cut a solid oval from another Memory Box die set.  After I adhered the two ovals together, I applied some White Blizzard Nuvo Crystal drops to the cut out areas of the butterflies and then allowed it to dry.  I then adhered it to my card with some foam tape.  My sentiment was stamped from the new Spring Fling Cardz TV stamp set.  To finish the card I added some sequence that I attached with some mini bling glue dots.

Happy Easter

Deanna here with an inspirational post for the Dies R Us inspirational blog.  Today I have an Easter card for you.

My card base was white card stock cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card.  I added an aqua mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and the pattern paper mat cut at 3 3/4"  X 5".

Next I die cut and embossed my Memory Box Bunny Silhouette die out of some yellow card stock.


Next I cut out my Easter eggs using the Poppystamps Easter Egg Party die set.

I chose to use the two smaller eggs for my card.  I cut them from white card stock and painted them with some Nuvo Mousse.

The Nuvo Mousse is water soluble. To paint with it I put a small amount of the colors I wanted to use on an acrylic block and spritzed them with water.  I then used a small paint brush to paint my eggs and let them dry.

The last thing I die cut was the Happy Easter sentiment using the Memory Box Perky Script Happy Easter die.

Finally I was ready to assemble my card.  I adhered all the mats onto my card base. I then adhered the bunny image with some foam tape.  Next, I tucked the Easter eggs into each side of the bush with the bunny and finally added my Happy Easter sentiment and the card was done.
Dies used in this project were:

You're my Pot of Gold!

Deanna here with another inspirational post for the CardzTV Gallery blog.  Here is what I have for you today.

I started with a piece of white card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base.  Next I layered the shamrock patterned paper on the card. It was cut at 4" X 5 1/4".  I then took another piece of white card stock and cut it to 3 3/4" X 2 3/4".  Finally I took a piece of green plaid card stock and cut it to 3 1/2" X 2 1/2".

My images are from the Simply Charmed cartridge.  I slightly layered the leprechaun over the end of the rainbow to give him the appearance of jumping out of the pot of gold.  I then flattened my images to make them a print and cut. I cut them at 3 1/4".  I assembled my layers and adhered the smaller panel to my card base with foam tape.  I then adhered the images to the plaid layer with more foam tape.

I stamped my sentiment using the CardzTV St. Patrick's Day stamp set.  I die cut the sentiment out with a small speech bubble die and adhered it to my card and the card was finished.

I hope you got some inspiration from this project and will join in the weekly challenges.

Think Spring!

 Deanna here with a Spring inspirational post for the Dies R Us blog.  Here is what I have for you today.

I started with yellow card stock that I cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" landscape style card.  I added a black mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and then the patterned paper mat cut at 3 3/4" X 5".  I love the little clouds on the patterned paper and thought they went with the whimsy of the bird houses.  The birdhouses were cut from the Tutti Designs Birdhouse Garden die.

Be sure to use your Tutti Design adapter plate when cutting this die.  It makes it so much easier to get a clean cut and to remove the image from the die.

I adhered all the layers together and attached the die cut image to the front of my card using some liquid adhesive.  To finish the card I added some enamel dots from the Nuvo Crystal Gloss Drops in Dandelion Yellow on the front of the card to add some additional interest.

Happy Birthday

Deanna here with another inspirational post for the Dies R Us inspirational blog.  Today I have a birthday card for you.


I started by die cutting the Frantic Stamper Birthday Grid on some orange patterned paper.


Next I taped a stencil down to some white card stock and using some Nuvo Glitter Paste in white and a pallet knife I added some glitter to the card stock and let it dry.
Can you see all the glitter on the card stock.  When it is dry it doesn't rub off so it is a great way to add glitter to a project.  Once the glitter paste was dry I finished my card.  The sentiment was cut from Tutti Designs Happy and Birthday word dies.  I used the smaller set of words from the dies.



The dies I used in this project are pictured below.

Happy Birthday

Deanna here with another inspirational post for you.  I am just so ready for spring that I had to do a project that said spring.  This image is a die from Tutti Designs.  I cut it out of some dark pink paper.  My card base is  4 1/4" X 5 1/2".  I added a black mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and some green striped pattern paper cut at 3 3/4" X 5".  The cart is adhered flat to my card.  My happy birthday sentiment is from the CardzTV Bigger Everyday Sayings stamp set.

I hope you enjoyed my card and find some inspiration to craft your own spring projects.
