Here it is, almost the end of March and we got about 6" of snow last night. What a way to wrap up Spring Break. The girls are supposed to have a softball game and track meet next week....that just doesn't seem right.
But while it's blowing and snowing outside, I'm longing for Spring down in the craft department. I saw my collection of watering cans sitting out on the porch all covered in snow. That sparked the idea to dig out one of my favorite Papertrey stamp sets called Garden Variety. My good friend Melissa Phillips developed the concepts for this set and I think of her every time I use it. The images and sentiments are so her style.
Scalloped cut patterned paper, loopy twine, white paint spatters, machine stitching and dimensional flowers & enamel dots finish off the cards.Large Kraft Sacks to hold the cards. I watercolored Small Manila Parcel Tags to use for to/from tags. They can be attached with a simple strip of coordinating Washi tape or a simple stapling to the sack.
I had such fun creating these cards. I think I'll go dig out more flower stamp sets to work with. I'll have a few of these up in my shop a little later on.
If you follow me on Twitter then you know that I've been dabbling with some of my new art supplies. I created my first art journal page and it was so much fun to just experiment with artsy supplies. I'll be sharing that soon.....
