Welcome to my PTI Blog Hop entry for February! I actually have 2 cards for this ... I made one and then couldn't decide if it was "spring" enough (theme for this month) but I loved it, so I made another attempt. I'll show my second card first ...
Spring to me means bright colors - dresses, Easter eggs, flowers, etc. All the pretty things ... God just shows us His wonders in the Spring and makes something out of nothing when flowers start sprouting up out of the ground and off branches. So, I made this flower card with the Friends Til the End set. I stamped one of the flower images onto Melon Berry cardstock, then colored them with Copics (R11 nad RV06). Then I used some Glossy Accents and Starlite glitter from Taylored Expressions to add some bling. I mounted the flower strip on some Raspberry Fizz and New Leaf paper with a lovely bit of Raspberry Fizz swiss dot ribbon. I wasn't sure what sentiment to add, so I left it blank for now. (Options included "Welcome Spring" or something like that ... :-)
And here's the first card I made ...Spring also seems to mean baby bumps! haha It seems like everyone huddled in during the cold holiday season and so Spring brings lots of baby showers! I made this card for just such an occasion. I love this color scheme - Melon Berry, Lemon Tart, and Dark Chocolate. I stamped the Lemon Tart card stock with Melon Berry ink using Polka Dot Basics to make my "fabric". Then I used the Quilters Sampler Additions to make the blocks. I colored them with Copics and put the rest together. I made the sentiment with a mixture of Mixed Messages and Simple Alphabet. I really love this card - I hope you do too! Tomorrow, I will post another card made with a similar design but a different sentiment.
Thanks for hopping by my blog! :-)
