The Seed Packet Template!!

Hi everyone...ohmigosh, what a lovely response to my little seed packet cards!  These easy templates are perfect for Springtime, which we've all been waiting for!

Thank you so much for all your emails...you guys sure know how to make a girl feel loved :)  Some of you have asked who or what is LilyBean?  LilyBean is my sweet little kitty cat...well she's really not so little, all 17 pounds of her (!) but she is so gentle and loving, I love her to bits!

Here's the seed template for you, I hope you have fun making them!  Feel free to share and I'd love to see what you come up with!   I will soon have my updated flower seed packets to share with you as well, I just need a bit of time to make a sample or two so be sure to check back in with me :)

Thanks again for all your lovely comments, I read every one!  Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs ~ Judy

More Seed Packets!

Hi everyone, it's a blustery rainy day today and I have lots of new things to share, I just haven't had a minute to sit down and post them! I had so much fun making this card from one of my seed packet templates that I just had to sit down for a minute and share it with you.  

There's not any stamping on my card except for the sentiment on the inside. There is some sponging though :)  I sponged clouds with Soft Sky ink using a scrap of cardstock that I cut to look like the bumps of cloud shapes.  I pulled the ink starting on the template, off towards the seed packet, moving it at different angles to give the illusion of clouds.

The little bunnies are die cuts from Impression Obsession, I used Baked Brown Sugar and sponged them with Early Espresso, then I used a black pen for their eyes.  The fence is a Martha Halloween punch and I trimmed off the bats and sponged the pickets in Smokey Slate.  I also sponged the grass lightly with Wild Wasabi.  For the lettuce I used a tiny piece cut from the new Spiral Flower die, cutting a piece of green crepe paper and rolled it up to form the cabbage.

I fringed a piece of Wild Wasabi with the new Fringe Scissors and fiddled around making tufts of grass to poke between the fence pickets.  The little flowers were punched with an old punch I got from the Dollar Store. For the flowers I used Crushed Curry, dotted the centre with a black pen and then shaped them on an old mouse pad.

The cardstock was embossed with a Chicken Wire folder from Cuttlebug on Pool Party cardstock and the ribbon is Pool Party seam binding.   I had so much fun making this card, I especially love the little bunny hopping over the fence!  

I just had to share one more card in this post :)  This was another card I had in my head, so had to take a moment to put it together :)  

 I sponged the dirt with Soft Suede ink, then drew (with a pencil) a couple of mounds to define the dirt.  The carrots are made with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch using Pumpkin Pie cardstock and it's sponged with Soft Suede ink, then I pencilled in a few little carrot detail thingies.  

The carrot tops are made by fringing a piece of green crepe paper, then are attached with a dab of Tombow glue.  The cardstock is Wild Wasabi, and after embossing with the Chicken Wire embossing folder I sponged the raised embossing with the same ink.  

Super easy card and so much fun to make!  

Thanks so much for stopping by today and for being patient with my off and on again postings!  I love your visits, thanks for sharing your time with me!
