I have some cards to share with you today...trying really really hard to achieve my to-do list this month!
I recently purchased some yummy new papers from Echo Park called Sweet Girl, and to say I love them is an understatement. Yellow, olive green, turquoise, red and pink. They are so much prettier in real life than what they appear on a computer screen!
I hand cut around the hexagons to create a background, stamped the doily and hand cut it, then applied the cardstock stickers and drew the faux stitching around the outside. Love those colours all together, don't you?
The next card was created with some bits and pieces of my Studio Calico card kit, and finished off with a cardstock sticker from Sweet Girl and some twine. Red and turquoise...mmmmmmmmm.
Having broken out my Studio Calico kit, I thought I should use some more elements from it, and went to the SC website searching for inspiration. I came across a card in the member gallery which used the Pebbles cardstock HELLO sticker as part of a banner, and used that idea for this card (I'm sorry I can't credit the maker as the card seems to have been removed?)
The other banner flags were created by folding washi tape over some twine...simple but brilliant. I couldn't stop at one ...
While playing around with backgrounds for the first card I showed you, I experimented with spraying a doily (very liberally) with some Mr Huey's mist in a shade called Hot Diggity...nice bright red!
I used it on a fifth card, backing a cute HELLO sticker from the Studio Calico kit and some mixed flowers from my stash.
And that, my bloggy friends, is my once-a-month card making frenzy all done and dusted for April :)
