Spring Pick

Hi all, for Episode #3 of Try It Tuesday!

I've a project to show you today using one of the beautiful Whimsy February releases, just in time for Easter and to give us all a long-awaited glimpse of Spring.


My card is a side ways Easel Card, giving me more real estate on the inside for a sentiment, (which will be added later).

Materials used: 

Spring Pick - Little Cottage Cuties, Vines Die Set - Whimsy Shapeology, EK Success Border Punch, (but wouldn't this look beautiful? Lace Doily Corner 1!!!)  Copic Markers, Memento Tuxedo black ink, Tim Holtz "Broken Glass" Distress Ink, Cardstock and DP from Stash.

I promised to show you how to save money with your trusty little craft hammer - but due to technical problems with me losing my pictures, I'll have to explain it verbally.

We've all encountered the added costs at the Post Office, haven't we?  It seems that the added depth of our beautifully adorned cards are going to cost us money.  Since the New Year, I've been trying to make my cards flatter, less embellishments, and of course trying to find an alternative to those beautiful flowers we have all grown to love.

"Smash" those embellishments with your trusty little craft hammer...... I don't mean smash them flat, but smash them gently to get rid of the bulk.  ie:  knots and bows, flowers, brads and paper beads.  I did have examples of before and after pictures, but my computer has put them somewhere - where, I cannot find:(

Remember, Stamp up a storm, ink up a wish and send it on to someone to brighten their day.

Rubber hugz, whimsy wishes,
