JAS Easter Project

This is a card for the Just A Scrappin' Easter Challenge, using another fabulous The Graphics Fairy image!

I printed the image onto white cardstock, and used Colorbok's Rosewood paper pack for the background paper, and American Crafts Ivory cardstock for the card. I used sheer American Craft ribbon on the side of the card, and a Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll pen to highlight the centers of the blue forget-me-nots. I showed this to my Mom and she just loved it! I love all the beautiful images I find at The Graphics Fairy!

Thanks for joining me today!

JAS Spring Challenge

This week the Design Team at Just A Scrappin' was given the challenge of making a Spring Celebration project. My niece Anna is just starting to make cards, and I thought I would showcase her spring card this week!

This was really simple! She stamped the flowers from Mark's Finest Papers (Welcome Poppies) with black Memento ink, colored the images with Prismacolor pencils, and matted the image with purple cardstock. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches and matted the same way as the main image. The card was one of those pre-printed ones, just charcoal stripes on white. We added 1/8" Offray lavender ribbon and clear beads.

We are just having the most fun making cards, and isn't it nice to pass some skills along!

This is being entered into the Inspirational Challenge at MFP. Anna loved the purple sunset, so she chose these colors for her card.
