The Voice of the Garden

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Design Garden Delights and Spellbinders Antique Corner and Wonderful Locket
Greetings friends!  If I said the word “Spring” would you that help you understand where my mind has been?  Yes, you are probably there too, so ready for spring!!  Today I’m sharing a pastel card (big surprise there) that matches the kind of mood I’m in.  My post is short today, but this card is so very simple – no need for me to drone on.  The top layer is made using Spellbinders Classic Oval LG and the layer below that – delicate and pink is made using Spellbinders Wonderful Locket.  The final layer in all its frilly glory is four cuts of Spellbinders Antique Corner arranged so that the point of all four corners meets in the middle.  That’s it!!


I’m using a sentiment from Quietfire Design from the Garden Delights set . . . so sweet!

Rubber Stamps: Quietfire Design – Garden Delights
Craft Paper: Neenah Classic Crest – Solar White 80 lb, PTI
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black and Clear Embossing Powder
Accessories: Spellbinders Wonderful LocketSpellbinders Antique CornerSpellbinders Classic Oval LG, The Paper Studio Pearls,  May Arts Silk Ribbon, Grand Calibur Die Cut Machine

Thanks so much for stopping by!  After a little over a week off (taking care of things at home), I’ll have some more cards to show this week!

    Good morning Becca,
    Oh how i do so much enjoy your cards that you make as they are always so pretty and girly most of the time as i know you do try to include the opposite species of humans sometimes.I always admire the filigree work that you are so good at doing and bring out the beautiful aspects of the dies. My only thing is you don’t come on often enough to satisfy greedy people like me that so enjoy your style, sorry.Hope you have a lovely day Becca,
    Love and crafty hugs from this side of the Atlantic

    Becca, your bows just leave me breathless; they are soooo beautiful. Is it possible to still purchase your bow-tying device with the DVD how-to’s? I know, I waited too long and now I cannot find it at ODB. Would you be so kind as to tell me how, if at all possible, we can purchase it or even just the DVD?

    Thank you for your help and keep posting your heavenly art.ReplyCancel
