Spring into Happiness

Spring into Happiness 2013

Happy Thursday to everyone, it is so pretty out side here in South Eastern Wisconsin, it is snowing and the weather man calls it a Alberta Clipper, it’s the kind of snow that sticks to the trees and when the sun come out it is breath taking because it sparkles. When it is all done the weather man says we should have 6 inches our biggest snow fall for this year. Unbelievable we live in Wisconsin this is like nothing. I do enjoy the snow and my grand kids are so happy they can build a real snowman.  Over at Digital Delight we are having a Delightful Spring Release so you can seeing all the new spring images. The images I used for my card are Flower Power Daisy, Egg Tree and Spring Sentiments.

The card I made for this release is called a WHIPPER CARD if you would like to make one here are the directions. It is a fun card to make on the top you can see another sentiment when you move the card that sentiment goes up and down. I cut both images out with The Silhouette Cameo. Created the background with distress inks by sponging the inks. Colors tumbled glass, chipped sapphire, stormy sky, bundled sage, peeled paint and wild honey.

Used some pearl pen light blue and bronze for the middle of the border flowers. The border punch is Martha Steward called flower lace edger. The papers used are from The Paper studio and Bazzil Basic.

These are the copic markers used to color the image.

The egg tree is all done in glitter. The butterfly is from Wild Orchid Crafts, to make it stand up I glued it to a piece of bendable plastic and them applied it to the background so it would stand up. Added some pearl pen color ice pearl.

In the center of the flowers I added Beadazzle by Suze Weinberg’s called tango. I tried to find a link for her beadazzles, I know she worked for Ranger but could not find any thing. These little beadz last forever.
