Spring is near…

Mar 16, 2011

This lit­tle card was cre­at­ed for my design team post on the Maya Road blog. If you want to see loads of inspi­ra­tion you need to check out their blog. The design team cre­ates some of the most amaz­ing projects.

With spring just around the cor­ner I thought it would be fun to use the “Green Thumb” mini chip­board set and the “Ging­ham Point Blos­soms” as they work per­fect­ly togeth­er on a card. One thing I love to do is add lit­tle ban­ners to the “Vin­tage Pearl Pins” it is such a quick and easy thing to do and real­ly fin­ish­es this card beau­ti­ful­ly. And The Girl’s PaperiePaper Girl” line is awe­some for any spring project. I love, love, love the col­ors and the pat­terns.

I cre­at­ed the cute lit­tle bun­ny using a sten­cil I found at Joanns. I just placed the sten­cil on water­col­or paper and paint­ed it using Ranger’s Per­fect Pearls mixed with Per­fect Pearl Mists just like you would with water­col­ors. After it was dry I out­lined the bun­ny with a fine tip black jel­ly roll pen and accent­ed his cheeks and tum­my with Dia­mond Stick­les. Around the edges of the pat­terned paper I applied Plat­inum Stick­les. My friend Ron­da laughed at me when I told her Stick­les is the crafters Botox. You can always use a lit­tle some­place. It’s true. After every­thing was dry I cut it out and attached it to the card using foam squares. The water­ing can is inked with Peeled Paint Dis­tress Ink and accent­ed with Peeled Paint Dis­tress Stick­les. I accent­ed the wheel­bar­rows han­dle, wheel and stand with “Vin­tage Pho­to” Dis­tress Ink then applied Glossy Accents on top.

Ok, off to do some clean­ing in this poor house. It took a real­ly huge beat­ing while I was in book mode. But I should be back on track with both the house, cre­at­ing and blog­ging since my tech­ni­cal dif­fi­cul­ties have most­ly been fixed by dear hub­by. It’s so nice hav­ing a techy for a hus­band.

Have a great day!
