Yay! Spring finally here??? or is it only here for a day??

Finally a day of sunshine in Calgary!  It was just a nice change from all the snow and white that I've been seeing.  I better enjoy this, as it's so impossible to predict tomorrow's weather here.  I think that it was snowing here yesterday??? but today, it's all gone!

Anyway, feeling very springish today, I chose a spring file that I was going to work with, and decided to make two totally different cards.   I picked the tulips from the Organic Spring Flowers SVG Collection.

The paper I chose was from the Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety collection. 

Tulips up-close and personal :)  The actual cut from SVGCuts was the blackout look of the tulip.  I cut that out, and layered another same tulip on top with foam stickers, but made a slit into the flower to make it look like petals.

The stamp here is from Technique Tuesday. I don't have a pic to show the grass, but it's actually two layers of grass (one mirror-image) layered on top with a foam tape.  It gives it the 3D feel!  The fence is Martha Stewart punch!

Here's the second card that I made.  It's rather simple, but simple is good, right???

The stamp is also from the same set from Technique Tuesday.  This card, I bunched up the tulips together and tied it with a ribbon :)

I added Ranger pearls to the petals...  not the greatest job, but it added a little "umph" to the card, I think :)

Anyway, are you guys all wondering about the upcoming SVGCuts collection(s) that coming out this week?  It is going to be amazing (well, it always is!) but I can rest assure you that it's going to be another week of fantastic files that you must have in your collection :)


  1. It's so Springy! I love the pearls-darn it another dimensional I MUST have! You won't believe how warm it was today...85 degrees!

  2. First- Your cards are beautiful! I think the Ranger pearls look great! 2nd- The weather in Canada sounds just like Iowa (I posted about it earlier tonight!). 3rd- I LOVE the flowers on your header and button. I tried to go through all of your posts to find out how you made them, but couldn't find anything. Did I miss it somewhere? And finally- your projects are absolutely amazing and such an inspiration! I am putting your button on my blog so my friends can see how awesome you are!

  3. Gorgeous cards Thienly! (well as always, LOL!) I have a soft spot for tulips, and those cards are so happy and springy that they made me smile big. :-D

    (Oh and believe it or not, this week-end it was 92 in Orlando! :-( Terrible!! I hope spring is on it's way in Calgary... :-))

  4. Gorgeous Card Thienly! It did remind me of spring even if it was only for a day! After the amount of snow that fell today I hope Old Man Winter doesn't hang around too long!
