Spring has sprung

Wishful thinking, right??!!

spring has sprung

I made this card using Spring Baskets, stamped onto a Vintage Cream (PTI) cut with a Label 14 die. I can't remember who makes the green gingham paper...October Afternoon, maybe?

The sentiment and butterfly come also from Spring Baskets.

Thanks for looking!

Teeny Trees

Hello there! Happy Sunday to you! I have been working like a busy bee in my craft area this weekend. (I have no craft room- I have taken over the living room, LOL). Today I have these lovely little lollipop trees for you. I love this set. The happy birthday is from lil' buddies and the butterfly is from Spring baskets. I stamped the trees in two shades of chalk ink. I inked up some grass at the bottom and some spring rain sky on the top. I used my copic marker on the trunks and I paper pieced the butterfly.

Abstract with WMS

It's been a long time!!!   But finally I had a chance to work with my Waltzingmouse Stamps.

This time I tried a new technique. . . droplets of reinker onto the cardstock and then using a straw to blow the ink around.  It would be easier with glossy cardstock, I think, as the ink sometimes dried pretty quickly.   This technique is not recommended if you become lightheaded easily!

I used white cardstock for the "blown" background and stamped 
the mums on clear cardstock,
attached with glue dots (under the pearls). 

Hope you like it!  It's really a fun technique!

Happy Birthday

It's Wednesday!

aqua and blue hb

I made this card recently using Musical Backgrounds. I have been drawn to using aqua a lot lately! The polka dot paper is from Basic Grey's Hopscotch collection and the darker blue paper and ribbon is Enchanted Evening from PTI. The "Happy birthday", from Say It With Style, was stamped using Versamark's Night Sky.

Thanks for coming by!
