A "Twofer" for you!

Good morning friends~  It's been snowing like crazy here on the east coast so what else is there to do but spend the day in my craft room and play!

I missed the last "Twofer Card Challenge" and I was determined not to miss this one!

 I used this cute image from Stamping Bella called Gardening Chicks.
  For my first card (Get Well), I stamped the image on water color paper and colored it using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.  I mounted it on MFT Plaid Patterns and added a Dee's Distinctively Secret Garden Flower, that was also water colored.

For the second card (Easter) , I masked off the stamp and just used one flower and bird from the image.  I die cut it using Memory Box Half A Dozen Eggs.  I also cut three of the same sized eggs from these fun polka dotted papers from ECD ~ Thinking About Rio De Janeiro.

I also wanted to share this darling card using MFT's Friends Furever image that sweet Kara from Bright Hope Creations helped us all color when we were at the Craft House in Kansas.  I learned so much from Kara and I'm hooked on learning more!  Thanks so much Kara~ love you girl!
You can find all the details of Darnell's Twofer Challenge here.

Here's some links to help you easily find the products I used:

I'll be adding one of these cards to the following challenges:
Simon Says Monday Challenge ~ Easter / Spring
The Sisterhood of Crafters ~ Birds
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
Use Your Stuff ~ Die Cuts

Spring Tulips In A Mason Jar ~ PTI Create Along With Us

Good morning friends~  I'm playing along with PTI's Create Along With Us 

 I used Mix & Mat Postal Die for the background and added the beautiful tulips from Friendship Jar Spring Fillers.  This set continues to be a favorite of mine from year to year.

  I cut the Friendship Jar out of vellum and heat embossed the edge in clear embossing powder.  Then I stamped the water image using Hawaiaan Shores ink and heat embossed in clear over top of that.

The sentiment from Banner Style was just what this card needed to finish it off.

I was inspired by this card of Betsy's.

Sparkling Joy!

Hello friends!  This is my final post for the Cut Cardstock design team and I wanted to give a super BIG "Thanks" to Cindy and Amber for giving me this opportunity to join their talented team of designers for the past year.  I've enjoyed using so many amazing products from Cut Cardstock and I'm now a committed customer as well!  There are so many choices of quality products from Cut Cardstock and you can't beat the prices and special sales each month.  

My project for you today uses White Classic Linen Cardstock and Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock which are both on sale until the end of the day.

Here's a sneak peek at the products I used:

I started by cutting an A2 sized panel of Neenah Solar White Cardstock using the background die.  I then used the die cut panel as a stencil and added some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink to the front of a White Classic Linen Cardstock.

I glued two strips of Silver (POW) Glitter Paper to the left and right edge using Tombow Mono Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue .  I also splattered some light grey ink to the background.

I cut the Altenew Tulips out of White Classic Linen Cardstock and stamped them using the coordinating stamps.  After stamping the tulips I stamped the solid image again using The Essential Glue Pad and sprinkled them with Stardust Glitter from Stampin' Up and set them asside to dry before assembling them with Tombow Mono Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue.  

Once the card was assembled, I stamped the sentiment from the Tulips set.
 Here's a close up of the wonderful texture you see when stamping on Linen cardstock.  

I hope you'll check out the products I used in today's post and take advantage of this month's sale on all Classic Crest  and Linen Cardstock.  Don't forget to add coordinating Basis Envelopes to your shopping cart!
I'll be entering this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Monday Challenge ~ In My Garden
City Crafter Challenge ~ Die Cuts
