Terrific TuesDIES Birdhouse Card by Melinda

Happy Terrific TuesDIE crafty friend!
I hope your week is off to a fantastic start. Today I have a cheerful…joyful treat for you! I created this card with one of Cheapo Dies new release dies…. The Birdhouse Planter. Here’s my card.

I started with a base of white cardstock. My card is an A2 size and is top folding. I then used some bright and cheerful papers from the Doodlebug Hello Spring paper pad. I layered the papers onto some of the scalloped stitched rectangle dies.

Here’s a closer look at the sweet little birdhouse die. I cut it out in a few different patterned papers and then pieced them together. I then used my Nuvo White Crystal drops to add the pretty little centers  and decorative touches. I sponged some light blue ink on the white base mat.

I added a fun sentiment from RG Studio 360 faith collection.

Rainy Day Tear Dew Drop Card

Hello crafty friends,
Melinda here with you today and I am sharing another fun card with you today! Here is what I came up with.

Here’s a look at my completed card. It is a standard A2 Size. I started with a white cardstock base. I then used some pattern papers from the Doodlebug Think Spring Collection.

I created these sweet little clouds and cut them out with my Cricut. I used one of my fine tip sharpie pens to add the stitching. I also used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen to add a little sparkle to them, but you can’t really see that in the photo.

Of course, the stars of this card are the sweet little rain drop shaped dew drops. They come in a variety of colors. I had these colors in my stash and they worked perfectly with the colors of the paper. I also love their translucent quality. Do you see the little cloud smiling underneath the blue one towards the top right?

I added a fun and appropriate sentiment that I made on my computer.

I finished it off with a little bow of some teal twine. I used a white dew drop to decorate the center of my bow.
