Floral Hello

It finally feels like Spring has sprung! Our flowers are blooming a little out of whack; we're still waiting for the daffodils in our yard to open. But we're all glad that terrible winter is behind us for good! I really enjoyed playing with this new flowery Stamp of the Week, while I had the windows open and a breeze blowing through the house... ahhh perfection.

This card is very different from my usual style, but I think that's why I like it so much. It is much more 'girly' and 'shabby chic' than usual. The edges are distressed with 'Tea Dye', the stamp is colored with Copics, and I even got some rosy pink sequins on there.

This is the current Stamp of the Week at Unity, called 'Floral Hello'. The subscription is only $5.79 (including shipping!) and you get a new surprise stamp in your mailbox every single week.

Happy Easter from the Fur Babies

Just hopping in to share two Easter cards and my fur baby Easter photo! I hope you are having a beautiful day :)

I created a one layer card for easy mailing. This uses Papertrey Ink "Mini Blooms" stamp set and the sentiment is a mix of Avery Elle "Oh Happy Day" and PTI "Polka Dot Parade #1". I used Hero Arts shadow inks.

I'm also entering this card in the current Curtain Call challenge "confetti crush".

Happy Easter to you!

Sending Happy

Friday seems to be a good day to spread a little extra HAPPY to the people around you. I was up late last night playing with the new Unity Stamp of the Week "Sending Happy Your Way" and couldn't wait to share it. I'm linking up with Unity FWF party!

Everything about this little card makes me happy. I colored the stamp with Copics and die cut using Lawn Fawn "Stitched Journal Die". The pattern papers are from DCWV "Honey Chic" stack. I also splattered some fun Color Shine mists in "Pink" and "Teal" and tied it all off with a bright magenta bow.

This is my favorite Stamp of the Week I've worked with yet. It will be great for so many different occasions, and yes it is SO much fun to color!

I'm getting this posted just in time for the Paper Issues link up "Pocketful of Sunshine". My card doesn't exactly have a sun on it, but it seems very bright-sunshiny-day so I'm linking it anyways :)

Have a beautiful weekend.
