Blue Skies

Happy Monday Evening! It was back to school for the kidlets today…..poor little one was in total denial after our 4 day weekend! I spent the day doing housework and picking up groceries.

I made this card over the weekend. It has been awhile since I had the time to play with my sweet Magnolia stamps. I really had so much fun creating this card. It is just for fun….not a DT card or even one for a challenge. Just pure fun!

This cutie is called Tilda with daffodil and she is from the last collection Butterfly kisses. I decided to perch her atop this sweet watering can. It is from an earlier collection and I have not used it in awhile. I masked off the image and sponged in some clouds with Tumbled glass distress ink and then sponged the grass with Shabby Shutters. I cut the scene out with my CM circles and then did some paper piercing along the edges for a little pop!

I decided to give a circle shaped easel card a try. Totally love this cute look. Since the focal image was quite large, I created the scalloped shape using my handy dandy Silhouette die cutter. I {heart} this machine :)

Here you can see the card opened up. I sponged another circle to create clouds and this sentiment from Verve stamps was the perfect match. The cut out shape and matching background are new from Stampin’ Up.

Thanks for stopping by and having a look at my card!
