Another Card with the Anja Corner Die

Even though we still have snow on the ground, I keep dreaming of spring flowers!  I also love the Anja dies and therefore went for the corner die to make another card with flowers, of course.

This time I used a peach and cream color scheme.  I used the Cheery Lynn cherry blossom dies and a few Nellie Snellen punches.  I added a sentiment, but this can easily be a card for any occasion!

Thanks for stopping by,

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Just a simple St. Patty's Day card for today!

This is an example of a different and great use for your heart punches. And surprisingly,  the little squares came from paint chips!

Hope you'll have a great day!

Spring is in the Air!

The sun is out, the temperatures are creeping upwards and therefore it is time to create a new "house" card with spring as it's theme.

Back in December I created a "Christmas House" card.  (You can see it HERE)  In January, I made a "Valentine" bird house and you can see that one HERE.  Now was the time to change the colors, add grass and flowers for a new and updated look!

I stamped the house with Impression Obsession's Cover a Card background stamp and then die cut it out, also with an I/O die.  The grass is a Cheery Lynn die as well as the tiny flowers on the windows.  The other purple flowers are from one of my most used punches from Nellie Snellen; the tiny twin punch, flower and butterfly.  The doily affect is a border die, also from Nellie Snellen,

Now, just stamping a saying on the inside of the card seems so boring.  We have so many dies and stamps that I decided to decorate the inside too. 

I used the doily die to tie it in with the front curtains and roof line; a small butterfly was an added sweet touch.  I  also added the grass and flowers and still left room for a personal note.

These house cards are so sweet and fun to make............try your hand at it.  You are going to enjoy making them as well as giving them.  Let me know if you need any of the supplies listed and I'll get them to you in no time!

Looking forward to seeing what you create!

The Lovely Anja Corner Die

As promised, I got to play with the Anja corner die and come up with this card.

I used the corner die in the two opposite corners and I used the Cheery Lynn Cherry Blossoms for the main flowers.  I have been using these cherry blossoms a lot lately;  they are a great size and I really like their shape.  The leaves are Marianne (LR0156) and they give the card an airy feel because they are open, skeleton type leaves. All in all I think it's a great card to welcome spring!

That's about it for today!
