Thinking of You Makes Me :)


Welcome and Happy Friday! I've got a really pretty spring feeling card that I made with the Sheena A Little Bit Sketchy that Crafter's Companion has. Let me say, it's a super fun set!!!!


I colored the flowers in with my Spectrum Noirs and cut around them leaving a slight white border. I also colored the leaves with the Spectrum Noirs as well and really, it's so easy to add beautiful shading to make them look realistic. I just love these markers.

I pulled some paper I had in my stash for the yellow (to match the yellow in the flower's center) and then the springy green floral print paper. I didn't have a huge piece of that, so to add some texture, I cut the paper into strips and glued them, slightly overlapping, to the yellow stock. 

I cut out the leaves with a Nestabilities die I have and lightly inked the edges with distress ink. Adds a little warmth and dimension.

The sentiment is from the new release, Crisalis. I love the classic fonts used in this series. Just beautiful. I cut that out with a round punch and glued to a piece of olive green corrugated paper I had in my stash. It's the beauty of working at a printing company and getting the discontinued paper swatch books!! LOVE. 

I snuck that under the popped up image. The kraft bird is from a package of pieces I bought at Micheal's in their cheapy bins. I just used some distress ink and spray mists to give it a little life. 
I hope you are inspired and be sure to check out all the products I mentioned on Crafter's Companion website HERE!

Sweet Thoughts Card

Spring is just around the corner, and you can almost smell those flowers. Okay, I'm dreaming, but this card is too cute for words. ...
