Creatin' Cards

Hey yall! Happy Thursday!!! I hope your day is going by great! The weekend is almost here! Whoo hoo!!! I have been playing with the April Kit from Scrapbook Circle and wanted to share what I finished with ya. This kit is filled with all sorts of American Crafts goodies! I love it!!! I finished up 3 cards.

"Hi: A Splendid, Lovely Day"

I have been wanting to make another easel card, so I chose to do so with this one. The chipboard bird is included in the kit. I covered it using Helmar V2 Spray adhesive with some leftover patterned paper scraps. I used Helmar Zap Dots to pop the birds wing up a tad. I used Helmar Adhesive runner for the card, as well as Helmar Scrap Dots for the flowers. The teal paper is Coredinations cardstock. I sanded the edges a tad. I love that cardstock! It gives such a great vintage look.

Up close of my bird...the alphas are American Crafts as well, but not included in the kit. They were pulled from my personal scrappy stash. I picked these up for $1.50 at a discount scrappy store!!!The sticker is from the kit. The flowers are included with the add-on's that go with kit. I cut the yellow shape out using the Home Decor' cartridge.

"Go Fly A Kite"
For this next card, the kite idea was scraplifted from our talented Jill at SBC. She cut some of the patterned paper that is in the kit to look like kites. I just love the idea and wanted to give it a try. Thanks to Jill for the scrappy inspiration!!!
The alphas are Jenni Bowlin and are from my own scrappy stash...
I used my Martha Stewart Icicle Border punch to create my grass. I inked it with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Peeled Paint. The banner sticker is also in the kit add-on's.
To show dimension...
"Oh, Let the Sunshine In & Face It With A Grin"

I created this shaped card using my SCAL software and Cricut Expression.
The blue cardstock and sticker are from the kit. The rest was pulled from my own scrappy stash: cardstock, Stickles, and bling.
Well, that is all for me today. I am off to try and finish a project I have been working on for a few days. It will be debuted Monday, as it is for The Cuttlebug Spot. Hint...it has to do with The Wizard of Oz and if you are a fan, stay tuned....I will be RAK'ing this project away to one Wizard of Oz fan! :)

Have a fabulous weekend and Happy Scrappin'!

Pin It!
