Springtime Creativity

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

Spring is in the air and my creative juices are flowing. I had some extra time this weekend and decided to enter some fun challenges going on around the web.

My inspiration this week was the promise that I made to myself to make more cards and tags for gift giving. Here are my creations so far this weekend!

The card is a pretty in pink inspiration. Here's what I used to make this card:
♥ "Forever Young" Cricut Cartridge - to cut out the shape of the woman
♥ Rub-on sentiment - "Thinking of You"
♥ Flowers by Prima (they have a soft textured feel to them)
♥ Ribbon FX brand ribbon
♥ cardstock & other small embellishments

The tag was inspired for my recent obsession with little cute duckies! Here's what I used to make the tag:
♥ Cardstock and Chipboard
♥  ribbon
♥  Paper Bliss Embellishments
♥  Silver rings (from Office Depot -tie a few ribbons around the ring or fill it with ribbons)

I have entered the card in these challenges:
Creative Belli Blog - Die Cuts
Stampin Sisters in Christ - Flowers
Platinum Scraps - Forever Young Cartridge
Cute Card Thursday - Touchy Feely
Our Creative Corner - Butterfly
For Fun Challenge - Encouraging Card

I have entered the tag in this challenge:
Paper Cutz - Make a tag

If you are feeling creative this weekend hop on over and check out the creativity of all of the DT's of these challenge blogs!

Have a wonderful creative weekend!

I just love this card. I would have never even considered cutting the lady out in a color besides flesh tone, black, or brown. I also like the flower, did you stamp the flower? It is beautiful.
