Spring and Bling!


Happy Monday - it's Diane with a few projects to share with you today.  I am happy to report that the snow is finally melting in New England and Spring is just around the corner!


I made this cheery card with a purple and white sunflower and two widths and colors of the fancy polka dot ribbon (from the deal and kit of the month for March).


The green sparkled butterfly is enhanced with an extra green gradient gem sticker to form a head.


I also dotted the "i" in Spring with a purple gradient gem sticker.


I use a lot of the gradient gem stickers in my projects.  I like to have all of the shades on one sheet - it makes my projects quick and easy since I don't have to search for colors that coordinate.


I used them to "bling out" the numbers on these birthday cards.



These cards were both for girls who love sparkle!


I couldn't miss making a little something for St. Patrick's Day.  This tag will decorate my Display Board in my kitchen.

I took a Pure Blossom dark green gem and cut it apart to create a four leaf clover.  This was  little tricky to do - you will need sharp scissors and be sure to look out for flying pieces (wear glasses or goggles!).  This dark green color is in the March Deal of the Month kit.


Four of the pieces are arranged like a clover and a stem is added with some more gradient gem stickers.

I hope Spring comes your way soon!

Beautiful cards. I have that same paper with the sweets, but I didn't know what to do with it. Thanks for sharing and giving me ideas.
