For this fabulous Paper Girls Challenge of Florals, I didn't have to go too far to find some flowers. Since I added a few things to my Capsule Crafting collection, I had a wonderful project just ready to share.
This project uses the Concord and 9th Wonderful Florals stamp and die set, colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, Stamp Market Color Crush paper, and a We R Memory Keepers Next Level Embossing Folder

Check out more information on how I compiled my Capsule Crafting Collection based on Kristina Werner's Capsule Crafting list.

AUTHENTIQUE PAPER: Happy Easter Week from all of us at Authentique!

It's almost Easter and that means we are going to share some fabulous Easter and Spring projects with you! We have had so much fun creating some wonderful things, especially since the world is in such upheaval.

Hello, and Happy Monday! Heather here, and I created this fabulous Watering Can Box with 3D Daffodils. Daffodils are so prevalent in the Pacific Northwest, there are even parades for them.
For this project, I used a fabulous cut file from the Silhouette Store by a designer named Tanya Batrak.
I really wanted to stay true to the coloring of the watering can (and it even tricked my husband when I was putting it together!), so grabbed cardstock from the Spectrum Series, using both sides of Silver Dollar to get both the stripes and dots in my project.
The tag was a little tag cut from some of the Cottontail Eight and a few of the Elements die cuts. Using foam adhesive in between the layers created some fun interest.
The daffodils are a combination of simple, white cardstock, Lemon Drop Spectrum, and the March cardstock from the Calendar Collection Solids cardstock pad.
I am really happy about how this project turned out. I think that the Cottontail tag lends itself both to Easter, but is Spring enough to last the season. This will be a really fun decor item to leave out during the next few weeks to brighten our spirits.
To round out today's post, I have two Easter cards that I created a bit ago. I really loved how colorful the Cottontail collection was, and how easy it was to pull together a few cards featuring the Easter images.
The first card is a combination of papers from the 6x6 Bundle and the cut-aparts from Cottontail Eight. A little die cut border, and trimming down the cut-apart make this card sparkle. Remember, if you want just a little pop of additional color, use your Spectrum series as your card base.
The last card also uses some border dies for interest, layers a wood veneer rabbit that I stole from a banner found in the Dollar Spot, and a few of the die cuts from the Elements die cuts page. Thanks for "hopping" along with us today, and we cannot wait to share with you some more projects this week!
