Layouts to cards

When I was un-packing from last weekend I found an extra flower I had cut out with the Cricut and since I can't through anything out I decided it would be fun to change this layout into a card.

First some details on the layout. The doodles are done with a Doodle Genie and a white gel pen and the I added some "bling". I cut the flowers out of patterned paper with the Cricut and added some Queen & Co brads. "In Madison's Shoes" is done with rub-ons (I know I am a stamper but I like rub-ons in my scrapbooking).

For the first card I did everything basically the same as the scrapbook pages and used the same techniques. I kept the white card base and matted the Bella in turquoise.

For the second card I kept the layout the same again but I used Doodle This and White craft ink for the doodles and I stamped the flower in black, colored it in with markers and added stickles to the dots on the flowers and the doodles. The HB is stamped in Apricot Appeal and punched with the 1/2 inch punch.

I really had fun playing with these and having the layout already figured out made it go much faster. I also want to so this layout with different patterned papers. It would be a good way to use some scraps and play with different patterns on the same card.

I hope you all enjoyed the beautiful weekend. We spent a lot of it outside and it is supposed to be 26 here tomorrow so I'm sure we'll be out again tomorrow. Gotta dig out the sunscreen and more Spring/Summer clothes :)
