Floral Mother's Day Card

With Mother's Day around the corner, it is never too early to start thinking about our card designs.  I love that Mother's Day is in Spring and we can use some great vibrant colors and florals in our cards.
Today I am sharing with you a card I created using the new Collage Tissue paper from idea-ology and a great textured background. 

You can see the process by visiting the video below.  Here I will give you some tips and tricks for using the collage paper along with some great Spring ephemera.

The collage paper is semi translucent and comes in four different designs. I used Floral on mine which has some beautiful colored roses and some great script background.  The three other designs are Botanical, Aviary and plain.

The background was created using the collage tissue paper as well as some texture paste through the tiles stencil.  I added Magicals to give the card some shine. 

You can see some more examples using some of the same product on a post called Floral Collage Paper

It is always a fun day in the studio when I have new products to play with and try out.  I recently picked up the new Tim Holtz idea-ology Collage Paper and was anxious to give it a try. 

The paper comes in three designs. Today I am trying out the floral design. I created this wall frame along with a couple of other cards.

The floral collage paper is great for spring cards.  I also used Lindy's Magicals and some great botanical ephemera to complete my designs.

Here is a close up on one of the cards I created using the collage paper.  I also added some turquoise corrugated paper and a metal band to give the card some great color and texture. 

This card has some similar featured, but I only used torn pieces of the collage paper as an accent and focused more on the ephemera as my focal point.  I also used some texture paste and thinlet dies to create a nice spring scene.

Hello crafty friends! I am here today to share a card with you that I created using the new Ticket Booth stamp set from Stampers Anonymous.
I also created a video and it was featured over at You Tube Channel if you would like to check it out. I have it listed below for your convenience.

I also picked up the new Chit Chat snarky sticker pack that I have been having a lot of fun using. There are some great quotes and fun statements that will be great additions to your cards and projects.

The ledger paper in the background was found at a local thrift shop. I was able to use one of the stamps from the etcetera collection to create my vintage ledger background.  
For your convenience, I have listed all the products that I used to create this fun card.
