We Are 3 Special Release

Tea Time is the latest great release from We Are 3. It is absolutely beautiful and can be used for so many occasions.  I absolutely adore the Vintage Tea Cups available - I know you are going to love them, too!

For my card today, I used three of the papers in the collection - Flower Petals, Tea Stains, and Cloudy Skies.  The tea cups and pearls were colored using Gimp and cut out using my Sizzix eClips.  When I color/cut digital files, I usually fill up a sheet with the image in various sizes for quick card making.  I took extra pearls from some of the images I had cut and used them to accent the card.  I then added transparent sequins.

Hello and welcome as I share another card made from the latest release for We Are 3!  This was a special early release with special pricing until the end of May.  I'll be here for the next three days sharing ideas for using both Tea Time digital papers, as well as the freebie Vintage Tea Cups.  If you get the freebie, remember to visit Bonnie at We Are 3's Facebook Page and give her some love.  In this post, I was inspired by today's sketch challenge at The Outlawz.

Sketchy Inspiration

Today I'm sharing inspiration from CAS(E) this SKETCH!  I just adore any opportunity I have to use my Table Scraps.  Sketch #222 was the perfect inspiration for these fun strawberries and some leftover papers from We Are 3.

Special Release

Hello!  I'm so excited to share my third card featuring Tea Time. I had so much fun making this pop-up card with a bird cage and bird.

Let's start at the bottom of the card and work our way up.  All background papers are from the newest Release Tea Time (We Are 3).  The focal point is from Bird Cage Silhouette from Raccoon Girl Design (Etsy).  The flower is Delicate Asters (Heartfelt Creations) - with leaves from Romantic Garden - with a bird from Bird Cage Silhouette.

What an exciting surprise inside!  Pops up a bird cage and bird using a pattern from Robert Sabuda.  This is the perfect way to create a gorgeous card for a special someone! 

Be sure to take a look at the New June Releases for We Are 3.  You will see all the new papers and images for June.  Also visit their Facebook Page to see how our Design Team members use new products.

For Old Time's Sake

While cleaning out my craft room a while back, I came across the very first scrapbook layout I made about 12 years ago.  My dear hubby was under the impression I wanted to scrapbook, so surprised me with about $300 of supplies....the surprise was that I thought that was a rather stupid hobby!  The big surprise came later....since we were newlyweds and in a way he was "listening" to me (i used to make a lot of sarcastic remarks about wanting to retire and scrapbook), I didn't want to hurt his feelings and decided to take some classes.  OMG - it didn't take long for my excitement level to rise during these introductory classes!

So I found my first layout - and since the aim of cleaning was to get rid of stuff, I pondered what to do with this first layout.  I decided to case the layout for each of my grandson's scrapbooks.  This is my first case.

Special Release - We Are 3

Welcome back to We Are 3's Release!  Get that cup of tea and check out today's design . . .

. . .  It's Tea Time!  The lovely pastel colors define this collection.  This card is quick and easy - the frame is one part of the collection - just cut out the center and pop up for dimension.  Gimp is my favorite media for coloring - so I colored the image for yesterday's card - and print and cut several in different sizes - making this card even quicker!  So take some time out today with that cup of tea and browse through the fun paper collections and images at We Are 3.

A Card for We Are 3

I used the We Are 3 digital paper collection called "Bird Songs" for creating today's card.  I used a sentiment from "Smiles."  I changed the color to blue and added a blue border.  My finished card needed something - a couple Heartfelt Creations die-cut leaves in my stash added the finishing touch.

This card with this nice large sentiment is perfect for Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #188 - Add a Sentiment.

Ladybug Birdie

Hello there!  Today I have a treat bag to share using the gorgeous Ladybug Birdie Card Kit (We Are 3).  I love the Easter Egg Treat Bag from SVG - so easy to make and I love that!
I started off the project by cutting the bag using Ladybug Lace digital paper.  The striped design in front were then cut using Ladybugs Green and Strawberry from the Pastel Burlap Collection.  Extra ladybugs were cut and popped up.  Ladybug Birdie was colored and paper-pieced using Gimp. Once colored, I printed four birdies and layered the pieces to give her dimension.  I then added a red bow to make the finished treat bag girlie, girlie.  A really simple project I think any little girl would love to receive.
