Happy Spring

Good evening!

Tonight I've asked a few friends of GinaK Designs to join me in showcasing the current card kit stamp sets this month: Happy Spring.  I can't wait to see everyone's samples - all the links are at the end of my post, so be sure to check those out!

My first card tonight shows a sentiment from the set paired with some Prima flowers and leaves - I just love this sentiment in the set...

Card Details
Stamps: Happy Spring
Cardstock: GinaK & Happy Spring patterned papers
Ink: Memento black & desert sand
Other: Prima flowers & leaves; Spellbinder's scallop tag dies; pearl brad; GinaK ribbon; embossing folder

My next card shows the flower pot stamped with the seed packets left out so that I could add some paper punched flowers.  The flowers are Marvy punch-outs that I altered to make them a bit more 3D.

The flowers are actually 6 petals, but I cut a slit down one petal and glued two petals together.  Then, I folded the petals back a bit and layered a smaller punch-out in the center.  A button brad holds everything together...

Card Details
Stamps: Happy Spring
Cardstock: GinaK; Happy spring patterned papers
Ink: Memento - black and desert sand
Other: Spellbinder's dies; copic markers GinaK ribbon; dauber; corner rounder; marvy flower punches; button brads; SU bird punch

My last card tonight uses a sentiments from the current Free with Three stamp set called Friends as well as Spring Mix.  I decided to use a thick layer of Crystal lacquer over both the gardening gloves as well as the sentiment to make them appear like epoxy stickers...

Using a variety of October Afternoon patterned papers, I made an 'eclectic' card that looks very 'scrappy' to me.  This is one card that looks much better to me in person than on the computer screen... lol!
