Rainy Day Paper Projects


I‘m playing paper today to chase the clouds away. Hoping for Spring to get here soon I’ve created two brighter and cheerier cards.

I selected a nice stripe from my Graphic 45 scrap and salvage box and layered on a lovely vintage image from Graphics Fairy. Marie Antoinette is so  beautiful : ) I gave this card a nice craft paper border to anchor the light colors.

I punched and gathered a border and added individually cut out tiny flowers from the Graphic 45 scrap box. To the center of each flower I added a dab of Liquid Pearls. I also inked it well using Distress Inks.

Notice the stitch lines???? Yay I found the cord to my sewing machine : )

I really love this darling image from Graphics Fairy of the bunny and chicks. Don’t ya just want to climb right into that picture and hear them little chicks peeping and smell the blooms from the tree in the background. The paper I choose for this card is from Paper Loft. The small button card is from Crate.

This lovely little bloom is separate flowers cut from the same sheet of scrap Graphic 45 paper…this time I did dry brush it just a bit to bring the intensity of the color down. I layered and curled several flowers and gave it a pearly accent center.

Just my luck…I found a small scrap of paper that looks just like burlap! It looks like it has a lot of texture. I used it to make a sweet little banner and topped it off with a string of pearls. A creamy ribbon and bow are the final accents.

Okay…now I have my Spring projects started….all I need is for it to be 85 and sunny : )
