It’s Frances here, and it’s my turn to post a tutorial today for Pop it Ups Wednesday. This time around I decided to pull out my steampunk themed dies and stamps, combined with the Oval Pull Card and Jinks the Monkey, to create a birthday card. I have to admit that steampunk is a little out of my comfort zone, but it can be fun to play with something in ways that aren’t what I normally do.
It’s the first Tuesday in April, time for the Die Cut Design Team Designer Challenge.

Hello to all my crafty friends out there!
Welcome to ECD. Today my post for Susan’s Garden Club Team has Susan’s newly launched Garden Notes Gerbera Daisy and Garden Notes Fairy – Tiger Lily . My Fairy is dancing in her flared skirt and she is super happy. For the background of my card I used the colors of spring.
Have a look!!!
There’s nothing better than a warm cup of tea than a warm cup of tea shared with a friend. Birgit here with you today to share a card I made that would be so fitting to give to a dear friend.
Hello to all my crafty friends out there! For us here in Maine spring is still a couple of months away but that hasn’t stopped me from thinking about spring flowers. Today my post for Susan’s Garden Team has Susan’s newly released Garden Notes Fairy – Rose Petal and she is watering a patch of tulips which is from one of her older releases.
I am tired of all the snow and wanted to think about Spring and the flowers we will see soon. Today I have created a window card with a little bouquet of flowers created with some of the Susan’s Garden Club die sets. Here is how the card was created.
Wishing all my friends and fellow crafters a very good day.
Where I live the spring season is in full bloom, marking the end of a hard winter season and the beginning of fresh sunny weather ahead. The spring season brings vibrantly colored flowers that dot the fields and gardens. Flowers brighten our lives with their beauty. One such flower is the hydrangea – also known as the water flower. Hydrangeas signify heartfelt emotions, gratitude and thanksgiving to one you care for, as well as abundance and prosperity. With these emotions in mind I have created this card with the hydrangea as the central theme.
