Happy Friday! Today I am back with fun card for our theme this week- Spring Fever.
What's better in the Spring than planting flowers- and I can hardly wait to get out into our flower beds and plant. Here in Colorado we can still get snow into May so I always wait until around Mother's Day, but I am definitely eager to get out there.
I used one of the Bunny stamps from the Oh, Crop! Clear Stamp set, and decided he would be planting flowers. The Grass Border Die, and Flower Bunch die paired perfect with my little scene.
I can't get enough of the Spring Has Sprung Paper Pack, so I pulled several sheets out that had pinks in them.

I used the Double Stitched Squares Die for my base for the bunny, and used the Large Half Doily Die above the bunny.
I added my sentiment to one of the Long Flags Dies, and then finished my card off with some pink pearls.
I love how this turned out and hope you enjoyed.

Today I am back with a fun card and tag featuring the March 2021 Club La-La Land Crafts Kit.
First up, I have a slimline like card- only for this one I used the Double Stitched Square Dies along with the Scalloped Squares Die. I used the Spring Has Sprung Paper Pack for my pattern paper, and then the fun flower pots and plants to the right and left of Plant Mama Marci. With the sentiment, I thought this was perfect- and wanted to showcase the fun dies!
I colored with Spectrum Noir Illustrators:
A few enamel dots add the finishing touches.
Next up I have a fun tag I made featuring the Smarty Plants Rubber Stamps. They are busy caring for Marci's plants. I used the Plant Shelf Die as well as the Plants Die to create my tag. The Large Stitched Tags Die - paired with the Spring Has Sprung paper pack just perfect.

Hey everyone! Angela here with my first project on the CutCardStock Design team, and I am so excited to share projects with you. Today I am sharing a Floral Themed Scrapbook Page. While some scrapbookers only like to create in one size, others like to create multiple size layouts. I fall into the latter – I love creating albums of all sizes, and today I share a step-by-step tutorial on an 8″ x 8″ scrapbook page featuring Curious Metallic Cardstock in Lime Green.
I had some 6 x 6 pattern paper with beautiful florals. It matched the lime green color well, and I then used the other side of this paper as a complimentary paper. I cut my pattern papers down to: 4″ x 5 1/4″, 2″ x 5 1/2″, 1 3/4″ x 2 1/2″ and 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″. With a photo covering the middle, the papers don’t have to meet the middle. Do not adhere your papers yet. At this point, we are just laying out the design.
Next, we are going to cut the photo mats. Using the same Basis Black Cardstock, cut a photo mat at 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. Next, I used Basis White Cardstock at 4′ x 6″.
Next, we will ink all of the edges with your choice of Black ink (or other colors). In this case, I have used Distress Oxide in Black Soot.
Once everything is inked up, you can assemble the papers together using your adhesive of choice.
Now that my papers are laid out, I can add my photo mats.
Now we can work on embellishing our page.
I put my doilies together, with the black behind the lime green (which makes it pop) and added my flowers to the corners of my photo mat, and added some gemstones to the centers (do not adhere down until you add the photo). Then, I trimmed my photo down to 3 3/4″ 5 3/4″ and added to my photo mat. I added my flowers to the corners and then added a few to the bottom right to balance my page. I added a few more gems to my page.

SPECTRUM NOIR COLORS
Once everything was cut I decided to ink the edges of my papers to match the blue theme. I used Distress Oxide in Peacock Feathers but you could use any ink (or color) or even skip this step.
Next I added my Stitched Zigzag Dies to the tag. I had done in coordinating colors and placed just a bit apart from eachother.
