Spring Has Sprung!!!

Spring is finally here!  It seemed like Winter was such a long one this year even though we barely got 4 inches of snow all year.  The year before we got over 30 inches total.  

To celebrate spring, I have a few cards to post:

The daffodil and greeting are from the Sending Sunshine stamp set from Gina K. Designs (I won these in a grab bag for a challenge). I used Memento Dandelion and Bamboo Leaves markers on the daffodil stamp and sponged with Daffodil ink.  I used white 100#  card stock and the new jelly bean green card stock along with the plaid patterned paper and gold ribbon from the Petals and Wings kit, all from Gina K. Designs. I used the Flowers Impressabilities for the embossing.

I made this card for a Paper Quilting challenge on Gina K. Designs Stamp TV.  The greeting is from  Sending Sunshine and the little butterfly is from Petals and Wings, both from Gina K. Designs.  The patterned paper is Hometown Summer from Pink Paislee.  I used Memento Bamboo Leaves to sponge the tag, green and white twine and a button even from GK.  

All supplies are from Gina K. Designs.  I used the jelly bean green damask patterned paper, floral image stamp, linen background stamp, and ribbon from the Petals and Wings Stamp TV kit.  The greeting came from Framed Greetings.  I used the Flourish  Impressabilities for the bottom half of the card.  I used the mega ovals and scalloped mega ovals from spellbinders.  

This card was CASE'd from one of Gina K's videos.  I love this stamp so much!  It's so cute, delicate, sweet, etc.  The image stamp, greeting and ribbon came from the Petals and Wings Stamp TV kit from Gina K Designs as well as the white and black card stock.  The image was colored with copic markers.  Such an easy but cute card to make.  

Well, as you can tell I've been busy.  I love this time of year and enjoy making cards with the flowers, butterflies and birds that represent the season.  I hope you have a wonderful day of crafting!
