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.

Terrific TuesDIE Butterfly Card

Happy Terrific TuesDIES crafty friends!
Today I am sharing a pretty card I created using the exclusive Cheapo Butterfly Die! Here is what I came up with.

This card is a tad bit bigger than the size I normally do. It is a 5 x 6.5 size. I started with a cream cardstock base and then cut a mat from some kraft cardstock 1/8” smaller. The patterned paper is from the Kaiser Kraft Cherry Lane collection.

The main die cut is the pretty exclusive Cheapo Butterfly die. I cut it out three times in some cream cardstock. I then brushed it with some of my Gold Gansai Tambai metallic watercolors to give it the gold shimmer.

I then used a pretty daisy die from Cheapo. I also used some mini butterfly die cuts from the floral fantasy unbranded die collection.  I brushed the daisy die cut with some more of the Gold Gansai Tambai watercolor it was the lighter version.

For the little butterflies and the centers of the daisies, I used my Rose Water Nuvo Crystal Drops. I also used my oval scalloped stitched dies for the base layers. Underneath that I used my stitched rectangle scallop dies for the mat underneath.

I also added some Rose Water Crystal drops for a little extra decoration.

I used the smaller rectangle scallop stitched die to cut out the happy birthday sentiment. I used a little foam tape to give it a little lift.
