Flower Card

I've been making so many cards lately that my scrap paper pile is getting a little too big!  Although I try to use scraps on cards whenever I can it seems that lately I've been making more than I'm using.  Now the battle against scraps is on in full force!  In addition to creating fun Valentine's cards, I've challenged myself to use up as many scraps as possible.  Today's card is just that, made from some scraps!

Supply list -

White cardstock card base
Patterned paper - Die Cuts With A View
Flowers - Kaiser Scrapbook
Brad - Doodlebug
Ink - Clearsnap Smooch Spritz in Pink Sprinkles

I think this color combination is just beautiful!  Of course since all the papers are DCWV they match perfectly!

The top and bottom sunflower are misted with the Smooch Spritz and the centre flower is plain.  I tried to fluff up the petals a bit for added dimension.

The picture may not show it well, but the shimmery mist really plays off of the sparkle in the papers.

This card was simple and fast to make plus I think it will be great for many different occasions!  I always love hearing what you think and what you've been up to, leave a comment!

Happy Scrapping!  Candice

Together We're Great Card

Has everyone recovered from my pun related insanity?  I think it's all out of my system now.  At least let's hope so!

I was feeling a little tired today but I still wanted to play with my card making stuff so I came up with a quick and simple card.  I like it because it's not just limited to Valentine's Day and this card could easily be made in large quantities to package as a gift!  I hope you like it!

Supply list -

Card base:  Jillibean Soup Kraft Cards
Sticker:  Autumn Leaves
Paper:  Die Cuts With A View
Ribbon:  Making Memories Vintage Findings
Stickles:  Lime Green and Platinum

A fast and simple card that looks great too!

The ribbon hides the seam between the pattern paper and the card base while the chipboard sticker acts as the sentiment.

Stickles spruced up the patterned paper with just the right amount of glitz!


A fun and versatile card is a great addition to any card stash!  Have you noticed that I'm using an awful lot of the same products in all my cards lately? I hope it's not boring anyone yet!  Truthfully I am really enjoying seeing how many different cards I can make using these fun products.  Plus, I have made a giant dent in my DCWV and Making Memories stash!  Thanks for visiting!

Happy Scrapping!  Candice

Owl Love Card

Today I've combined my love of all things vintage with my love of obsession with owls.  Whoooo doesn't love owls?  Ha ha!  See what I did there?

Okay, I may not be as funny as I think.

Anyway, I hope you think this card is a hoot!

Yeah, I did it again!  I do that sometimes.

Supply list -

Card base and calendar spot:  Jillibean Soup Kraft Card
Paper, buttons and twine:  Making Memories Vintage Findings
Owl:  Autumn Leaves
Other:  Red ink

Isn't this card sweet?  I love it!

The calendar spot is inked on the edges and the twine wraps around the inside of the card.

I cut away the large plain portion of the cross-stitched patterned paper to turn it into a border.

These little buttons were just screaming for some twine!

Now is this romantic or what?

Can you believe I made this card "owl" by myself?

Yep, there I go again!

Listen, thanks for stopping by but don't fly the coop without leaving a comment!

Okay, I really need to step away from the puns.

Happy Scrapping!  Candice
