The Girls Paperie Layouts and one last Spring Market Card

Hi girls
Lindy here ...

I’ve just got 2 layouts to show you
using the Girls Paperie Paper Tinsel and Twig range 
The first two papers I used are Deck the halls and Tinsel and twig  

I used the reverse side of tinsel and twig sprayed some glimmer mist intermittently
and with the tinsel and twig paper cut out all the different shapes on the reverse side…. matted the 2 small photos which sit nicely in the middle of the papers…


punched out some butterflies with left over scraps and dabbed some Ranger ruby red  perfect pearls onto them

With the leftover scrap I made some flowers using a flower punch, and placed a  Flower stem and some bakers twine


Then I placed a tag and cut out a journal tagstar on the tag inked around the tag with a blue rhinestone star and  Jumbo Java versamark.  Place some thickers for the title a printed word …                     


Now onto the next layout, this one has a shabby look
Taking the other 3 papers in the range Holly berry floral, Festive brocade and Snowfall
And cutting them to fit the layers and even the strips  come in handy…sand around the photos for the distressed look … on the strip in the middle I place some white black lace and felt ricracThe thickers were perfect for this page and I printed out a verse to match the shabby look


Towards the top if the page I place some leaves flowers and a scrapware butterfly   and inked it with versamark rose red
Under the laces I inked a scrapware tree withVersa mark Jumbo Java, placed gardenias,a handmade rose and a felt heart


and lastly,
Just for You card using the Webster's Spring Market Collection

I made this card using a collection of Tracy’s irresistible flowers.  There are some stemmed flowers in two-tone brown and red, blue canna lillies, and the beautiful petite closed rose buds in brown and black.  I arranged all these in a bunch then tied them together using Lemondrop Baker’s Twine.  I also slid in one of the my2angels Happy Birthday Pin embellishments. 

To adhere the whole element to the card, I used a hot glue gun but you could do it with wet glue as long as you apply some sort of pressure for a little while to help adhesion.  To use up some left over scraps of the Webster’s Spring Market papers, I cropped a ‘farmer’s market’ label from the Market Menu paper, made two score lines approx 1 cm from each end and kinda bent the middle section to allow it to sit over the stems of the flower bunch.  

 I then cropped the spring market strip from the bottom of one of the patterned papers and shaped one end to look like a banner and attached it to the farmer’s market label with two metal brads.  Using DS tape or Dimensional magic (DM), adhere this element over the flower stems by placing the adhesive on the underside of the two scored folds.   

To finish the card I added my title using the Spring Market Alpha Stickers, and threaded one of the stamens in the centre of the brown stemmed flower through a lady bug charm.  I did help this along with a few dabs of DM to help little lady to stick.   

Finally add some DM to the birthday pin, sprinkle with glitter, and use a ruler and black pen to add some outlining.  You are done!
