Ashley's Anniversary Blog Hop!

It's been one year to the day since my Bestie, Ashley, began her Scrappin Palace! I'm here to help you all celebrate not just that, but the LONG AWAITED arrival of SPRING! All of our projects on this hop are spring-themed, so join the fun!

You should have gotten here from Jessica at Baking up Crafts. If you've just happened by, hop on over to Ashley at Ashley's Scrappin Palace!

I made three different spring cards for you all.
First, Rainy Day- it rains a LOT here in Oregon in the Spring, so that's the first thing I thought of for a project!

On this card, I used the Duck from Create-a-Critter cut at 3" (the galoshes and umbrella are its adorable accessories) along with the phrase from the Duck.

I used glittered cardstock for the "day" overlay on the phrase and then I used my Stardust glitter pen to trace around the letters for an extra little touch!



I picked up the droplet and flower rhinestones from Craft Warehouse awhile ago, and they are some of the best dollar bin scores I've ever had!




Next, we all look forward to SUNNY DAYS!

This Cute little birdy (same cart/size) is sportin' the phrase from the Sun!

I coordinated the papers between the two to generate some cohesion, and I added the red pearls in the center of the daisies to add some dimension!



Lastly, I made this project to really stretch my creativity. I mean...a feather on a card???


I used my one and only Smooch Spritz to color the feather, which I just taped to the card under the punch-out flower, which I popped up on two different sizes of Pop-Dots (so that the flower is tilted).



Well, thanks for hopping along with me!
Next you're in for a real treat with Ruthie from September Ninth!

  46. All the cards are sheer cuteness- But what I really wanted to comment on is how you extend the design to the back of the cards. I will surely use that on a future card.
