Global Design Project - Lacey Dragonfly

Hello!! I hope everyone had a great weekend. We had my nephew's first birthday party on Saturday and it was a lot of fun. This month has been filled with tons of kids parties for us. And we have another one this weekend as well, then I think we have a break for a while. In the next few days I'll share the invites I made for my nephew's first birthday as well as the card I made for his gift.

For today, I'm sharing a card I made for this week's challenge at Global Design Project. I check out all of the great projects the designers make each week and this is the first time I'm finally participating. The challenge this week was to CASE Louise Sharp. I LOVE everything she makes. I decided to use the same layout for my card. It's such a great layout that you can do so many things with it.

I used the Delicate Details stamp set from SAB. This set is great! I don't know why it's taken me so long to use it. I put 2 of the images on one block, stamped in versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. Gorgeous!! Don't forget you only have a few more days to get this great set. I then cut a dragonfly and added the sentiment to a tag. The sentiment was too long for my tag, so I used washi tape to cover up the areas that I didn't want to stamp when I stamped each word. This is a good thing to remember when you are hunting for a sentiment for you card. You can always make it fit!

I added gold thread behind the dragonfly and some gold sequins and dazzling details to finish the card. So pretty!

Be sure to play along this week at Global Design Project. This is my first time but it won't be the last!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Basket Bunch Easter Cards: Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Hello Welcome to the Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog hop. There are 20 of us from around the world so be sure to follow along to see every one's projects. You should have just come from Holly's blog. She had some fabulous projects for you this week!

Our theme for this month was to focus on Basket Bunches or Dragonfly Dreams. I chose to work with Basket Bunches. I had used Dragonfly Dreams for my display stamper projects back in November so I was out of ideas for that set, haha! Plus that bunny is so cute in Basket Bunches that I knew I wanted to do something with him. I'm also glad to have fun springy cards to share after ALL of the snow we just got here on the east coast. I mean it's mid-March, this is crazy!!

This came out exactly how I pictured it in my head. How cute is the carrot wreath?? To get a perfect circle shape for the wreath, I cut out the size circle I wanted out of the circle framelits. See below.

I used this circle as the base for the carrots. I stamped, colored and die cut 15 carrots to fit around the wreath. Then I cut and colored the bunny as well. The bunny's tail is one of the pom poms from the Pom Pom trim. As I was cutting it off the trim, it came unraveled a bit and got a little puffy but I like the look it gives. I stamped and embossed the sentiment on a Pool Party tag. To finish off the card I added ribbon from the Cupcakes and Carousel embellishment kit and some enamel shapes and gold dazzling details. This is my favorite card!!

For my next card I did lots of watercoloring!

I stamped and embossed everything on water color paper with white embossing powder. I then used inks and my aqua painter to color everything in. The background was also water colored and the bottom was stamped with the little grass image.

If you look closely at the background you will see that I embossed several clouds from the Lift Me Up stamp set with white embossing powder. I also added white sequins to several of the clouds. You can't have a card without sequins or enamel shapes!! :) 

The sentiment was stamped on vellum paper and glued using the fine tip glue pen. Since this glue dries clear it's perfect to use on vellum paper!

I hope you enjoyed these Easter cards!!
