Mary Poppins

I keep singing a spoon full of sugar makes the medicine go down.  A big thanks to my new followers, gosh I am so honored that you have joined my site. Greetings to everyone, I am trying to get more uses out of my dies with these fantasy designs.  I truly am not sure how to use the little rain die so I just added the clouds on top. 

On this design I used a gray cardstock under the white piece so the rain and houses would show through the die cuts.  I added an additional skirt in blue and cut the cauldron to shorten it then attached the handle from the pail to create a purse.

I love stopping by all your blogs and seeing what fun projects you have created.   There are just so many wonderful ideas.

I have not created a paper art project in a while so I thought why not just add a splash of color for intrigue.

Celebrate Spring

Good morning everyone

We are having a few sunny days here in the northwest but rain is on the horizon.  I am in such a Spring mood, can't wait until the flowers start to bloom.  I hope you enjoy this whimsical design.  A big thank you to my new blog members and those that stop by for a visit.

For the chair I trimmed off part of the Madison Park Bench and just attached the arm.  You can make a chair any size with this method , maybe someday Dave at Memory Box will design a chair.  The flowers I made using the Sizzix Accessories - Susan's Garden Tool Kit and a 1/4" circle hand punch.

Over The Bridge

For those that stop by my blog you probably know I enjoy whimsical designs.  I don't stamp and just the thought of coloring gives me the vapors.   Today's post started out with the idea of could I create a bridge using the dies I have.  I started first by die cutting the 3¾″ circle which I then embossed using a brick pattern.  Next I used the 3¼″ circle and cut out the arch.  After trimming the wrought iron fence I attached to the top of bridge and added the trees and houses.  I added the big splash border under the bridge and the trailing vine on the right side and honeyblossom sprig to the left.

A big thanks to all my new blog friends and everyone that has time to stop by for a visit.
