Flowery Meadow

Hi friends! Today I'm popping in with a little inspiration featuring the Not 2 Shabby April Paper Pad Club. Earlier this month I shared projects with the Life Begins after Coffee pad, so today I'm working with the Flowery Meadow paper pad.

This paper pad has a page of cut aparts as one of the designs that you can cut by hand or with a scan 'n cut machine.  I did that for todays cards.

For my first card, I did a paper collage technique, just tearing different papers and piecing them together for a cohesive background. I borrowed a sentiment from the Spring Gnome sentiment to stamp on the lined paper, then die cut in a circle. I matted with some of the green sparkle paper from the pad. I layered a few of the floral pieces from the cut apart page for my main focal point, then accented with sparkling enamel dots.

For my second card, I used the EZ Wonder Die #1 with papers from the pad to create a shaker window.  I accented with more of the cut apart images, then fussy cut one of the flowers from the purple paper to add to the flag banner.  The sentiment is from the Tropical Leaves set and cut with the coordinating dies. I layered some more of the designs, adding some white scallop edges as borders to finish things off.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulously creative day!
