Shimmerz Plum Pudding

Happy Spring! Happy Mother's Day!

FabScraps, 49 and Market, The Garden KitTracie ShumanComment

It's another beautiful Spring Day here.  I have been working on this door hanger this week, using the Garden Kit:  A Rustic Spring and I also used lovely flowers from the add-on from the Extra Blooms Kit.  I also used the Shimmerz Spritz in Plum Pudding on the title.  Extras I used were Shimmerz Texturez in Tidy Widy from an earlier kit, and acrylic paints in green and yellow from my stash.  Also there is a splash of spots in Penny for Your Thoughts Inklingz.  I also added three rusty butterflies!


And a close up of the texture and beautiful flowers!  I also really like the variegated effect on the Bloom where you are Planted chipboard piece!


Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out all of the awesome products at the International Scrapbook Garden!

Happy late Mother's Day, from me and Tracie, and all of us at the ISBG!

A Second Card Using Our Recipe

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
Chalk Ink (Prima Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink Blossom Tree)
Flowers (Market Floral Mixology

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!
