Spring: Stamp & Create & Whiff of Joy Cards

Happy Wednesday! Where is this week going? I have been super busy these past days and haven’t had any time to get some work done here in my craft studio! The kids all had birthday/hockey parties this week-end and I was busy being the Mum Taxi! This week we have doctor check-ups and orthodontist appointments along with after school sports and their weekly music lessons! Thank goodness for my i-phone’s calender…it keeps me from forgetting who is going where!

I have two cards to share with you today. First up is my card for Stamp & Create’s Monthly challenge which is Spring as well as for our weekly Product Spotlight Sale: Charms.  All charms are on sale 25% off through Sunday at midnight EST.

I have used a Magnolia Stamp from the Sweet Crazy Love 2012 Collection: Tilda as Star. I also added this sweet egg accessory stamp which I believe is from two Easters ago. They were both masked and then I airbrushed the background with my Copic ABS. Love the soft effect this gives.

The patterned paper is from MME Follow your Heart pack as well as October Afternoon. I used some old SU! ribbon and a heart 2 charm tied with some rustic twine. The sentiment is from SU! and was stamped on some Kraft cardstock.

My second card is for the Spring is in the Air theme at Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog. I used this whimsical Norma Fickel Spring Joy image which is currently on sale for 50% off  at Whiff of Joy.

For a change, I colored my image with Prismacolor pencils blended with OMS. This gave a lovely soft coloration which I think suits this sweet image. The swirls are from this set ~here~ and are perfect for adding some interest to your image if you aren’t matting it. The paper is from an old Basic Grey paper pad. I also used some Whiff of Joy dies: the cute hearts and my favorite butterflies! The doily was die cut with a Cherry Lynn die and that gorgeous ribbon is also Whiff of Joy. You can currently get a great deal on an assortment of this ribbon. I personally love this ribbon, It is high quality with just enough stiffness to tie beautifully but not too much so that it drapes wonderfully as well.



That is it for me today! I am hoping to get to some DT work later this afternoon. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
