Something Spring Like....

I was crafting again...big surprise right??!!  
I needed some bright, beautiful colors to work with and be inspired I chose the Basic Grey Picadilly line.  It feels like a warm quilt with lovely patterns and colors!
I came up with these six cards will soon be a class at my LSS.  I will keep you all updated with a date for when it will be scheduled.

 I've used some Tim Holtz dies as they are so versatile!  I also inked the seam binding ribbon, scrunched it up and then dried it with my heat tool - such a great look!
 I created my own little banners by using simple rounded toothpicks!  I just cut off the top, laced them through the banner and voila - beautiful embellies for cards and layouts!
 The woodgrain embossing folder that I used was again from Tim Holtz...I just lightly rubbed my ink pad over it to highlight the embossed features.
This one was quite simple...just some 3D adhesive, butterflies cut from my Slice and some pretty little rhinestones.
 I created another banner with a toothpick, used the left over seam binding that I stained and some cuts from my Slice.
They are all the regular 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 so they will fit in a regular size envelope.  I used A LOT of 3D adhesive, but they can also be flatter by using regular glue/adhesive...this would make them cheaper to mail. 

Thanks for looking everyone!
Wish me luck - tomorrow is the big surgery day for my knee...maybe this time the surgeon will remember his tool....!  (Long story...)



  1. Thank you SO much for leaving the sweetest comments ever on my blog! You put a big smile on my face! I really appreciate it. I love making new scrappy friends that share my love for pretty papers :-) After reading your blog I can understand what you mean when you say that things I write feels like YOU... I mean, the things you write feel so much like ME, so I guess it should be the other way around too *lol*

    I hope your surgery went well and that you will be able to get back to your scrap-desk soon, 'cause I really love your work! :-)

    PS. I am sooooo curious about your long story! :-) DS.

  2. These cards are WONDERFUL, Jody! Love them all :)

  3. Hi Jody. Saw your cards in the store on Sat. They are gorgeous and a big hit already. People have already been asking when the class will be scheduled. Hope your surgery goes well!
