More Echo Park

HI! I hope you aren't getting tired of seeing my Echo Park creations. Because when I won the new collection- A Walk in the Park- I decided how much I loved it and am really enjoying creating with it. There is just something about colors and kraft cardstock that speaks to my heart. One of my favorite things about the colors of this collection, they are just toned down enough.

I made this fun thank you card using an orange block of paper, I cut a strip of the cover page on the kit and used that at the bottom of the card. I used a scrap of kraft, then cut out and foam taped ( with Glue Arts foam tape) the Thank You block, and then foam taped the flower stickers. I added matching gems to the flower centers and tied on a bit of twine for the bow.

Another card I made this one a few days ago,  I used some Bobunny dot chocolate paper behind the blue paper, cutting it with my pinking deco scissors. Then I pop dotted the notes block, and added a little foam tape to the tree I added it to the side. I also added EP letter stickers and the cute little duck sticker as well. Before I finished, I distressed the edges of the outside paper for a little dimension.

I made another card with the cutouts,
putting them along the side, after I added a block of the yellow paper to my card blank. Then I sewed a couple lines with my sewing machine. I also added the red butterfly sticker and cut out the orange butterfly from another block. I added some Amer. Crafts glitter letters and a couple lime buttons.
 Quick and Simple card!

and lastly to share today- I mistakenly made this card for a Bobunny assignment, needing another collection for it, so here it is to share since I made another card. I used the Sunkissed collection, adding in a couple cutout clouds and a pulled out NoteWorthy journal spot. I added this flower chipboard piece, adding chipboard sunglasses and a small red dot to make it into a cute sun. I drew on a small mouth, and added the large greeting sticker. I used Glue Arts 3d adhesive for the clouds.

That is it for me today, I hope everyone enjoys a happy and safe holiday weekend! Happy Independence day to my American friends!

Have you seen their next collection? I am in so much trouble I hear they're going to do a new collection a month. I need to find another source of income. I probably wouldn't be near as excited if you didn't make such cute cards to inspire me!
