Today on the Want2Scrap Blog I am sharing a Thinking of You card that features one of Want2Scrap's newest additions to its store, Mulberry Paper Flowers.  The design paper for this 6" x 6" card is from Graphic 45s Botanical Tea Collection and the beautiful mauve ribbon is from May Arts.

I stamped my sentiment from Graphic 45 Botanical Tea 2 Cling Stamp set with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Gathered Twigs on Bazzill cardstock that had been die cut with Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Rectangles .  I then added the Want2Scrap Nestabling Fleur de Lis Rectangles - Mocha Pearl to the die cut before adhering it to the card front with pop dots.

Using the leaves die from Heartfelt Creations HCD 735 - Gift Ensemble Die out of green Bazzill cardstock I die cut four set of leaves.  I shaped the leaves before adhering them to the corners of the card.  I then added 3/8" Mauve Mulberry Paper Flowers and 3/8" Pink Mulberry Paper Flowers with Art Glitter Designer Dries Clear Adhesive to the die cut leaves.

These beautiful Mulberry Paper Flowers come in a variety of beautiful colors and are the perfect accent to your paper craft projects!  I would love for you to visit my blog, Candy's Creations, for additional projects and inspiration.  Have a great day!

I am so excited to share that I have been asked to join The Robin's Nest Design Team!  To see the full announcement please visit The Robin's Nest Blog and leave some love for all the new designers joining The Robin's Nest for this next Design Team term.

I have been using The Robin's Nest Dew Drops for a long time and in fact I have been published in several magazines using their Dew Drops over the last several years. Here are a few samples of my cards using Dew Drops:

This is the card I created for the application process to The Robin's Nest Design Team position:

Today I am sharing a Birthday card featuring The Robin's Nest Dew Drops.  I created the 6" x 6" card base out of Bazzill cardstock and then matted coordinating pieces of design paper from Echo Park's 6 x 6 Love Story paper pad.  I wrapped white May Arts Crinkle Ribbon around the center of the card base and finished it by adding a bow.  

I used Spellbinders Tear Drop Circles Die to die cut the pink Bazzill cardstock.  This created the perfect pattern for me to add The Robin's Nest Diamond Dew Drops in Ace of Diamonds around the circle.  I also decorated the inside of the card and I used Spellbinders Classic Triple Scalloped Edgeabilities die and Ace of Diamonds Dew Drops.   To adhere the Diamond Dew Drops I used Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive. 

Then with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Cryogen White Paper that had been die cut with Spellbinders Classic Circles SM, I stamped the "Have a wonderful birthday" sentiment from Heartfelt Creations Inspire Me Sentiments PreCut Set.  I then lightly added Tim Holtz Spun Sugar Distress Ink before matting it on the gold glitter paper that had been die cut with the coordinating Spellbinders Classic Circles SM.  Next I adhered the entire circle to the card front.  Finally with Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive I added three of the The Robin's Nest Mini Drew Drops in Regency to the white circle.

To create the flowers I used Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms Die, the flower dies from Heartfelt Creations Sweet Lullaby Die and the leaf die from Heartfelt Creations Gift Ensemble Die.  I shaped them using McGill's Paper Blossom Molding Mat and Tools and added Art Glitter UltraFine Transparent Crystal and Pinkilious Glitter using Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive.  I then sprayed the bitty blossoms with Tattered Angels Chalboard Glimmer Mist in "Mauve"lous. 

Finally to complete each flower I added Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest Dew Drops in Mocha Trail  and The Robin's Nest Mini Drew Drops in Regency with Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive to the flower centers.

To complete this special card I also decorated the inside of the card with The Robin's Nest Diamond Dew Drops in Ace of Diamonds.

You can view all the wonderful products that The Robin's Nest has to offer on their website at   http://robinsnest-scrap.com/ and see some wonderful pojects and inspiration on The Robin's Nest Blog.  I hope you enjoyed my project today featuring The Robin's Nest Dew Drops.  Have a great day!
