Late as usual.. I did quite a bit of traveling last month, so we had a hard time meeting up to celebrate Debi's birthday this year. But we were finally able to get together for lunch and had such a good time catching up! I guess we were gabbing too much and forgot to take a pix. Next time!
So I decided to keep with my resolution and use the stuff I have. I bought the new Jumbo Tim Holtz tattered florals die and wondered when I would ever need a flower that big?! So here's what I came up with...
Decided to replace the bow with a handmade flower. That flower is huge!!! But I like how it came out. Cut about 6 of the largest flower and made a rose with it following Rosanna's tutorial. Check it out- you can use smaller flowers too. Love the results and how easy it is to make. Thanks Rosanna!
Next I finally sat down to make a card. Not sure why I always struggle with cards nowdays. But I managed to crank one out before our lunch. Started with Recollections corrugated cardboard base and distressed it using gesso.
Then I layered using the new Lawn Fawn paper and cut some green cardstock using my PTI die that makes making hills so much easier!
On the green hill, I used my new Walter and Winnie stamps.. I LOVE THEM!!! Super happy with the results. Also picked up a similar set by Stampin up that I hope to get to use soon. Also used the new banner punch that I got from Stampin up and punched out several papers. Strung them on some pink twine I got from the dollar bin at Target (score!). And the focal point of the card is the two bunnies from the new Mama Elephant set. So cute!
Finally, I also made her a Happy Meal too. Decided to keep it simple since the background paper was a little busy. Stamped up another bunny from Mama Elephant's Up and Away set. I also wanted to try using some of my pocket scrapbooking cards in my other projects, so I pulled one from an American Crafts birthday set and added it to the Happy Meal.
Need to catch up on more birthdays! Hopefully I will have more projects to share in the near future!
