Dontcha just love moss! You'll see it a lot... because I love it.
I love the Wild Whispers Adventure paper collection... LOVE these arrows for pattern paper. the card is a 5x5".
The Argyle Stencil is so Easter! I cut the mat board 2x2", gesso, distress crayons and stencil... repeat 4 times.
These are so fun and easy to make!
Thanks for popping in and I hope you find this quick card easy to make! Creating just for fun... is fun!
Despite the shadow from my shifting camera here's a very quick video making an easy Mossy Elements card... or 2. Join me as I learn on my @xyroninc Create a Sticker.

I stamped Chausten onto the new Distress Mixed Media Tag and covered him in Distress Glaze to minimize the inking on him. I did a simple blend of distress inks for the rest of the tag. No... I don't have the Distress Oxide inks yet!
I layered the Doily stencil and lattice rubbing off the ink between stencils with a baby wipe. I cut the "GOT CANDY" with the Pastel Leather Paper pack and Alphanumeric letters. Use the Magnetic Platform to keep everything from shifting. Ink the edges so they pop!
Get the placement of the letters before adhering. I decided a little ephemera needed to be here so some Ranger matte multi medium and black soot distress crayon really pulled it together. I tucked the letters into the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker, rub and BAM instant sticky letters and not fingers.
OK, I added the Crazy Things bunny ears for fun! I hate to fussy cut so I would get the Crazy Things Framelit if I was you.
I added the teeniest Small Tattered Florals for a pop of colour.
The Medium Bow Punch makes quick work for Chausten's bow tie!
Layering the stencils shows a subtle background effect.
Tied off with a fluffy bow inked with wilted violet distress ink.
Chausten and I had fun. Although he doesn't seem too pleased with his bunny ears. It was fun to create... just for fun for a change. Chausten thinks so too...

The best part about these stamps... no cutting! Stamp and line up the Framelit. Every flower needs a butterfly and the Butterfly Duo w/Texture Fade is exceptional.
The Magrnetic Platform is essential for the Framelits and Thinlits. It helps to use a little washi to hold the famelits in place so it won't shift. Plastic packaging is perfect for the Bell Jar glass portion.
I used the new Mixed Media #8 Distress Tags with the Flourish Texture Fade. Once the tag is embossed I covered the tag with gesso. While that takes a few moments to dry I hauled out the Magenta Nuance Powders.
Blending with the powders is simple. You can also spritz like I did here with the duo butterfly then shake the powder. The colour is intense. I cut 2 flower heads to layer.
When the inking is dry add some Clear Rock Candy Distress Stickles for that shimmery look. I wanted the tag to be subtle next to the brightness of the flower.
Apply distress crayon and blend. Gently wipe off exposing the embossed flourish. Ready the Bell Jar die cut with Scrapbook Adhesive 3D Foam Squares.
Loving the glassy look.
I would have loved the tag on it's own I think.
A little saying with Small Talk from Idea-Ology.
The duo butterfly is a big pop in colour!
Layered and fluttery.
Tied off with a bow.
Time to pull out some inks, powders, dies and stamps. Spring is around the corner and it's time to create some bouquets.
