Cherry Blossom By Art by Miran

It's Springtime and that always means Cherry Blossom's.  Just not in Arizona!!! LOL  But I do love them and think they are beautiful and fragrant.  Just lovely!!  This image is Cherry Blossom.  I won a challenge at the Art By Miran FB page- this one the free images I won!!


I used some paper that actually had cherry blossoms- very cool, since I had it forever.  And then cut out some of the cherry blossom's from the paper and bumped them up and enhanced them with some pearl accent gel.  Thank you for stopping in and hope you have a crafty day!

Gamer Reggie BY Lacy Sunshine

Wow- my second post in one day!!!  It's a raining, gloomy Sunday...I'm having a PJ day and spending some much need time in my craft room.  I really enjoy, when I get to make a boy card.  It's not too often and this was such a sweetie- Gamer Reggie.  I was able to snag him for FREE with a special giveaway on Lacy Sunshine's FB group.


I always find it difficult to embellish a "boy" card- probably less is more.  So I went to town using my circle die and just used a lot of different patterned paper.  This will be sent to my little nephew in July for his birthday.  He is a gamer for sure!!
Enjoy your day,
Amy

Rory- Time To Paint The World BY Lacy Sunshine

Wowzers!!!  Holy Color Batman!!!  This was so much fun to make!!!  I can't look at it without smiling- How about you?  This adorable digi is Rory- Time To Paint The World.

I used a lot of different elements...Pattern paper, die-cuts, embossing folder, 3D stickers, 3D chipboard sentiment....all from my stash.  The paint chip sticker and paint can/brush sticker- I bought probably 10 years ago- when we moved into our current home.  I just knew I would scrapbook the whole painting thing...not!!!  Anyway, I hope you love this creation as much as I do and also go visit the Lacy Sunshine FB Fan Group.

XOXO,
Amy

Sweet Hello by Art By Miran

YIPPEEEE!!!  I am the guest designer on Art By Miran Facebook Fan Page today.  I am thrilled!  I was able to pick any image from the Aty by Miran Etsy store- how cool is that!  I saw this image- Sweet Hello, and knew I had the perfect paper to use.  So that made my decision- I was able to picture my project in my mind...I know I am not the only one out there....You know what you have in your stash and see the perfect image to use!!!  Totally me, me,me:)

The paper I had was an Echo Park collection kit called The Best of Friends.  I don't usually complete the inside of the card, till I am ready to use it.  But this time I wanted to make in complete.  My BFF lives in California, about an 5 hour car ride away.  We have been friends since 7th grade- about 30 years...of complete goofy-ness and giggles!!!  Her name is Joy and she lives true to her name.  So this card will be used shortly, just to send a quick "Hello, how are ya?"  Now you-should send one of your lovely creations to someone special in your life- just because!!

With Gratitude,
Amy

Nerdy Cute- By Karleigh Sue

Hello and Happy Thursday!!!  I am pleased to be the Inspiration on Karleigh Sue's Inspiration Blog today.  I have chosen another adorable image, Nerdy Cute.  I had a lot of fun with this image- as I had the perfect paper and embellishments to use with it.

                                                   Have a Super Creative Day!!
