Jenni Bowlin Cards

Ugh. I've had a cold/sore throat/cough all week. I'm sick of being sick. Luckily, it's Friday and I don't have anywhere to go or anything to do this weekend. Yay. I plan on staying in my jammies and hunkering down in my scraproom. When I'm sick, my creativity goes out the window, so I'm itching to get back and get started.

So, as promised, I have a couple of more Jenni Bowlin cards. I know I've already said it, but I just adore everything in this months Mercantile kits.

On this first card, I made ruffles from the crepe ribbon and stitched them to the center of the card.



Then, I added some butterflies that I punched with my Martha Stewart butterfly punch. Folding the wings up gives this card lots of texture!



I love the vintage feel the sheet music gave this one.

This next card uses the artisan chipboard and the mini papers. I created the flowers by punching scalloped circles, cutting them into the center and scrunching them up before layering them.


Pins and seam binding finish them off.



Well, that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by!! :)

Wowsers, these cards are amazing, I just love the butterflies and the stick pins in the flowers on the other are so gorgeous, congratulations you have rocked them. I so hope you are feeling a bit better today, but the spending some time in your scrap room sounds like the perfect medicine.

Beautiful cards! I love the vintage feel to the first one with the sheet music and the trims. Those butterflies look just amazing. Love the dimension of the folded wings.
And how stunning your flowers are on the second card. Love the idea of using a scallop punch to make them. Will have to give that a try. Thanks for the inspiration.
