Yummy Crate Paper - Dehoarding Part I

Happy Tuesday! I am back from my submission-call-marathon! And it really was a marathon. I am not sure if I want to share the number of cards I created for this call - it would be too embarrassing to not get accepted some cards :) But I had so much fun! Just playing with all my stuff. Doing what I like best. And I realized that I love to use patterned paper for calls a lot. I have sooooo much paper, I have to start de-hoarding it! Crate Paper is having a Design Team Call at the moment and I had (hoarded) some yummy paper from them, so I quickly made these:






I love the texture of their paper! I am proud that I produced a Baby card that would fit for a boy or a girl. The bee stamp is from this cute Hero Arts set. Flowers and gems are Prima Marketing and buttons are Papertrey Ink.

I hope you are all well! Have a beautiful day and thank you for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Liebe Vanessa,

Deine beiden Karten sind umwerfend schön, man muss sie sich ganz lange anschauen, denn es gibt so viel zu entdecken.
