Chirp, chirp Happy Spring

Hello! I have a super cute card to share with you today. I used the adorable chick from Honeycomb Happiness to make a fun springy card. After the little bit of snow we had this morning, I am more than ready for spring to get here. For now, I'll just have to deal with this bright card. During my stamping get together last weekend we made swaps and this was the swap I made. I only had to make 4 of them so I figured I could make a card with quite a few details. I stamped the chick on shimmery paper and watercolored him with Daffodil Delight and Hello Honey. I have been on a watercolor kick lately and it's lots of fun and pretty relaxing. So I enjoyed coloring these 5 chicks. The DSP on the card is from Birthday Bouquet and the grass is the Cotton paper cut with the fringe scissors.

I hope you enjoyed this fun card and it brightened up your Friday!

Birthday Pink Blooms

Hello! I'm back! I have something fun and cute to share today. I told you I was a busy beaver crafting up a storm lately. Today's projects are some projects that I put together for a stamping get together I went to over the weekend. We were to each design a card and 3D project. The ladies in the group had outstanding projects. It was a fun day. The projects I designed used the Birthday Blooms stamp set and the Birthday Bouquet DSP. Love these 2 products. Of course it's not very hard for me to not like anything flower related. As usual I was going to pass on this set but I fell in love with it. The flower is so pretty. For the card, I stamped the flower on Watermelon Wonder paper and cut out the main image. Then I stamped the leaves on Mossy Meadow. I then cut out which leaves I wanted to add with the flower. I'm not sure if you can see it in the picture but I used the aquapainter to add some additional dimension to the flower and leaves. It wasn't as noticeable as I was hoping it would be. Oh well. Then I added the flower to the white oval. I punched out the sparkle-y banners with the Dazzling Diamonds paper. And then added all of this to the pretty DSP. The sentiment is from Sprinkles of Life and I used the Washi label punch on the ends.

My next project was the cute little baker's box. I used the Baker's Box thinlit which I just recently got on sale (thank you weekly deals). I cut out the box with Mint Macaron and stamped the flower in Mint all over the box. The tag also uses one of the other flowers from the set. I colored the flower with the aquapainter. Then I tied the box together with Pool Party glitter ribbon. Who does not love glitter ribbon?!?! This stuff is great! It ties so well. And considering it's blue ribbon, it goes fairly well with the mint box.

I hope you liked today's projects. Thanks for stopping by.
