DT: Bloom

Dear scrappers,
This is my DT post for Connie Can Crop. I made a card using the digital image, 

BUGFFLBLOCKS FUNKY FLOWER BLOCKS 

FROM THIS MONTH'S SPONSOR:



Here is my card, made with many leftovers from other projects:








Inside:


Some close ups: 






I tried to add as much shine as I could using the metallic stabilos  and the dazzles. The leftover sunflower sticker had some glitter on it and the cabachon in the middle. I included
 some vines leftover cuts from an old project to add some dimension to the image as well.













I used the following materials: including rub-on sentiment and Authentic 6x6 paperpack from Connie's Crafty cart ...





I hope you enjoyed this card and decide to join us in this month's challenge:

I made this card out of a sample postcard I had done for my Cricut demo job at Michaels long time ago.


I added it to a 6x6 piece of printed cardstock, I got from Connie and trimmed the cardstock to the right size.


I used the negative cut from a previous project as stencil and also for the sentiment inside the card:




 The USA letters, are also negative cuts from other projects, which I doodle around with red glitter marker and some rhinestones from Connie as well.

For the rest of the sentiment, I used leftover stamped sentiments on watercolor paper also from a previous project:

Most supplies are from CTMH, and some American Crafts cardstock.
I hope you like this crazy recycling/ using my stash project.

For this challenge, I decided to make a wall hanging for my husband's birthday this month:

The whole size of this insert for a frame is 12.5 x 13.5 in


My husband loves Stella, thus, when I saw this Bugaboo digital image, I thought of him

I used some retired CTMH papers,  little B tape, decoFoil, watercolor paper, and TH distress markers. All, which I haven't used in a while. And my laminating machine to do the blue foiling of the laser printed image.


I added some liquid glass to the glasses and the cup.

My supplies:

I hope you enjoy this simple project and decide to join us.

Many blessings,

Vicky Tovar

For this challenge, I decided to use my new Twist & Pop Card -die from tattered lace and my Cut N Boss:
This is a friendship/thanks card:


 I left it with a shaped card. I sued watercolor pencils and the CTMH blender to color that single bird. CTMH cardstock and printed paper.
For the inside:

I used several alpha dies from Tattered lace and boBonny, and even paperwishes die of the month (you)
 The thanks is also from paper wishes.

I'm thinking in outlining the letters with markers to make them pop better. This is my first twist and pop card, hopefully you like it.

Many Blessings

Vicky Tovar
