Spring Time Cards!
This little sheet of scrapbook paper was calling out to me to make some spring time cards. I love the colors in it (Celery, Almost Amethyst, Rose shades, Olive, Saffrons and Banana shades, etc.) and also love the fact that it LOOKS textured, even though it's not.
Here are 2 fun cards I made... the first with CRAB AND CO. from Stampin Up! I made the circle with my coluzzle because I needed it to be almost 3 inches in diameter and I don't have a circle punch that big! That meant cutting the scalloped circle by hand using scalloped scissors.
The next card is using a stamped image by Stampendous that Joy from eclecticPaperie sent me! Stampendous makes such adorable spring images. There are little stick on rhinestones on the word window punch in the corner, and on the "S". The word BLESS YOU is made with the little tiny snap stamps. The image is colored with markers, the scalloped edge is cut with the "cloud" decorative scissors, and there is a piece of apricot grossgrain ribbon (Stampin Up!)
All the cardstock for both cards is SU! (Amethyst, Banana, Celery, & Apricot)
