Some Favorite Charms...


Hi, it's Diane today with some soft and pretty cards to share with you. I thought I'd highlight a few of my favorite items for you today.


Some of the first Creative Charms items that I ever used were these 3D Sparkly Garden Brads with the tiny butterfly brads and floral gems.  They are a "go to" item when I need a bit of sparkle or whimsy on a project.


The Flared Flowers are another favorite - the iridescent centers add so much sparkle and always make me smile!  This card is a "just because" card and would be nice to send to a crafting friend.


Did you know that the Vintage Poppies come in fourteen different colors?  


They arrive with a pearl brad in the center but I often switch these out and substitute a Vintage Jewel Brad or a Gradient Gem Brad if I want to add more color and sparkle. 


The Gradient Gem Stickers are always useful as accents or to replace the missing dots for your "i"s if you use a small die cut sentiment - I don't know about you but those dots seem to have a way of escaping from me!

If you'd like any more details about these cards, you can find them on my personal blog, Capadia Designs.

Very cute and great little additions to the ideas you always share. The vintage poppies look like a fuzzy stuffed animal type item.
