Love to Craft? Join my Dazzling Divas team!

Hello again! How’s your Tuesday going? Are you ready to play with the March kit that coordinates with the Meandering Meadows Suite of product? I played with some of the product earlier this morning for my CASE-ing Tuesday card. If you missed that post, you can check it out here. I hope you were able to watch my Facebook Live, but if not, you can catch the replay over on my YouTube Channel here. While you’re there, I would love it if you gave my video a thumbs up and subscribe if you aren’t a subscriber yet.

Let’s look at my scrapbook layout first:

Here are the measurements:

  • Base in Gorgeous Grape cardstock – 12″ x 12″
  • Balmy Blue cardstock – 10 1/2″ x 10 1/2″
  • Basic White cardstock – 10″ x 10″

I have been waiting to scrap these photos for awhile, as you can see by the date. When I saw the card base I used in the layout, I knew this was the time to scrap them!! The flower that is ini the upper corner was created with the extra stamp set, which is a two-step stamp set and is tamped in Garden Green, the ink spot in the kit, Balmy Blue, Gorgeous Grape and Lemon Lolly inks. I ended up fussy cutting it and adding it to the layout with dimensionals. To make it pop against the white background, I stamped the splatter image in Bubble Bath ink randomly in the area that I was going to add the flowers. The Balmy Blue twine is in the  Baker’s Twine Three Color Pack and the sentiment stamp and labels are from the Paper Pumpkin kit.

I don’t know about you, but I really love how my layout turned out! Now let’s look at my first card:

Here are the measurements:

  • Card base in Fresh Freesia cardstock – 41/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and trim off 1 1/2″ and then 3 1/2″ off the front
  • Card base from kit – 2 @ 1 1/4″ x 4″ and one at 3 1/2″ x 4″
  • Balmy Blue cardstock – 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Basic White cardstock – 2 @ 2 1/4″ x 4″

This is actually a bridge card, something I had never heard of before. I belong to a training group and it was part of our Creative Challenge to create one and I thought I would share the style with you! Once all of your pieces are cut, it’s just stamp and assemble! I stamped my sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink and the flower in Garden Green. I colored the flower with Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight and Bubble Bath Stampin’ Blends, our version of alcohol markers. I used some of the Adhesive-Backed Dragonflies & Birds for my bling.

Here’s a look at my first ever bridge card that I entered into our Creative Challenge:

I used a Lemon Lolly card base and a piece of the Meandering Garden DSP along with the Garden Meadow Bundle. My bling is a few of the Brushed Brass Butterflies. Now let’s look at my second alternate card:

Here are the measurements:

  • Card base in Balmy Blue cardstock – 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″, trimmed like a bridge card
  • Kit card base – 2 @ 4″ x 1 1/4″ and 1 @ 4″ x 3″
  • Window Sheet – 4″ x 3 1/2″
  • Basic White cardstock – 4 1/4″ x 4″

I decided to change up my bridge card and not include the bridge. lol When I started to create my card, I didn’t like the way the bridge covered the pattern of the kit card base, so I eliminated that portion and added a piece of Window Sheet. The Window Sheet is attached to the back of the two strips of card base and then attached to the Balmy Blue layers to create a card front. I used the wooden die cut, label and sequins from the kit and added another bow of that twine. The sentiment on the inside is from the Comforting Thoughts stamp set. I did change up the inside during my live, so be sure to watch the replay.

So what do you think? Now if you love butterflies, I highly suggest you subscribe to Paper Pumpkin to get the April Kit! You have until April 10th to subscribe, but I wouldn’t wait!
