Happy weekend! I hope everyone is getting a bunch of crafting projects squeezed into these next two days. We are sadly wrapping up Spring Break around these parts and while we didn’t go anywhere out-of-state, we had such a wonderful time relaxing with ZERO committments. We recharged our batteries, but I don’t think anyone is revved up to get back to school!
In between doing nothing, I decided to experiment with a little tea- and coffee-dying. It quickly morphed into tea- and coffee-dying every day, all things. With some tags and doilies I dyed, along with this 1 piece of American Crafts (or Pebbles) paper, I created 9 fun cards.
The reason I am saying it is either American Crafts or Pebbles is because at JoAnn Fabrics, it is branded as American Crafts (they must own Pebbles) and it is a one-sided, less weighted paper than the heavier stock, two-sided Pebbles version you can find at scrapbook.com. Either way, I am in love with this paper!
I also used some solid card stock from my stash as the base of the card, as well as some raffia for the tag, a Martha Stewart butterfly punch, a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle dye for my Sizzix, and my sewing machine. To see the entire assembly process, you can watch a video I uploaded on my YouTube channel:
From these 12 rectangles, I made 9 cards in about an hour. I had so much fun making these!
These are the perfect spring time greeting and thank you cards. Now the sun just needs to come out around here!
Till next time,
