My creativity this weekend...
So I have had slim to ambition to do things like laundry, cleaning, or even a LO. It has been a pretty blah weekend, especially since my son had a cold and was sick all week. So INSTEAD... I have been working on my swaps, and making flowers, and cards!
This is one of the cards for my swap the butterfly papers are from Teresa Collins' line POSH! I love these papers and have so many more plans for them they just look spectacular. Think my son would be offended if I made him a butterfly LO? I used Liquid Pearls to add a little shine to the large butterfly at the bottom and to the digital stamp. Sorry I do not remember where I purchased this stamp, if it was from you and you happen upon this please leave me a comment and I will add the link onto this post. The other small appliqués are just some random ones I think I bought for the intended use on my hair bows, but they look fantabulous on this card!
Here is the sneak peek #2 of my card swap cards. Again I used Teresa Collins' paper line POSH. This just goes to show how versatile this like really can be! I love it so much (I think I should have got more)! The digital stamp of the girl is one again that I do not remember where I purchased it (cut me a break I have like 2300 digital stamps, I think I hoard them.), but again if it is yours leave me a comment and I will link your site on this post. I pulled out the Liquid pearls again, and a sticker that was in my stash it was one of only two left on the sheet so I can say that they are at least a year old (possibly 5, lol I don't destash often) but it looks great on here.
These are my easter embellishments for a swap, I know some people don't consider a tag an embellishment but I was in the tag making mood and I think they turned out great. I used scraps of paper so I can't even tell you what line they are from anymore (that't part of my love for tags it helps me to use up some of my mountain of scraps), if you know the line let me know and I will link it on this post. The feather and ribbon are just random things in my stash in all honesty there is nothing on these tags that I can for sure tell you where it came from besides the yellow ribbon with the orange stitch I bought that at micheals!
Her is a closer shot of the top of my Easter tags I think they are so sweet and still have enough room to be personalized for the lucky scrappers who receive them!
Here is a nice tight shot of the flowers I made I think they are so pretty and look way better in person, the picture does not do them justice, I could not for the life of me find the perfect button or rhinestone for the center so a large Liquid Pearl did the trick, the bottom piece to the flower or the "leaves" are also coated in glimmer mist!
And my final tag for the day is a boy tag, I love the bright papers on here with distressing, I think it looks fantabulous *yes, I love that word., the buttons and the feathers really set it off. The striped piece of paper at the boom is acctually open on top to create a mini pocket ( I am not sure if I will ever use the pocket but its there if I want to).
