FabScraps, The Garden KitTracie ShumanComment

Do you remember our recipe from the 18th of April?

The recipe:
Colors:  Pink, Purple, Black and Whites
Patterned paper from the Garden Kit: Rustic Spring Kit  cut to 5 1/4 x 4
Embossing
Chalk Ink (Prima Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink Blossom Tree)
Butterflies
Flowers (Market Floral Mixology
Title
Glitter

Spray Mists (Shimmerz Spritz in Plum Pudding)

I made another card using the same recipe.  Here is our second card:

To refresh your memory here is the first card (see the details on the April 18th blog ):

Sorry about the color variations!  Time of day and location!  As you can see both cards use the color theme of pinks, purples, black and white.  Each features embossing highlighted with chalk ink.  Butterflies on both - check, Flowers on both - check, a title - check, and Mist - check.  When I have challenges with my creativity, it is easy to write a recipe with elements you have on hand.  You can then go back to your recipe and see what different creative ideas come to mind with the "same old" recipe!

These cards feature papers from the Garden Kit: A Rustic Spring, the chalk ink and flowers also are from this part of the kit.  I always love the bonus embellishment add on; the butterfly, title, white pearls, glitter and white leafy branches are from this add on.  And you don't want to miss the mixed media add on.  You can see the amazing Shimmerz Spritz on this close up:

Isn't it amazing what one little recipe can do?  You really should check out the Rustic Spring kit.  From all of our design team work, you can tell it won't disappoint!

See you soon with more ideas!
