Petunia ~

I saw this sweet little piglet recently and knew I had to have some of these stamps.  I believe it's a new line from Stamping Bella, but I'm not sure.  At least they're new to me, and just so dang adorable! I bought 3 of them, so here's the first one, and I'll be putting the other 2 together for you this weekend.

Easter / Spring ~

Here are the final 3! This one is very sparkly, as we used Stickles on it.  It took forever to dry, but it was worth it!

I think these two are my favorite, and certainly seems fitting for all of the Spring gardening we're all ready to do.

Last but not least, are these happy chicks!  So sweet, with some of the soft pretty colors of Easter.

That's it for now, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them!

Flower Power ~

I've got 3 more of the 7 cards from this months Card Extravaganza at the Occasional Artist to share with you today.  Again, I basically stamp the backgrounds at the shop (I forgot to get the manufacturers of the stamps again), and then I bring it home and add my own touch to it.  I've never done this technique before; we used markers on a large stamp, then mist it with a spray bottle and stamped it.  The sentiment stamps I used are from CTMH called You're the Bomb-Operation Smile.
Poppies always remind me of Veteran's Day...and the Wizard of Oz.  At least I remembered to stamp the envelope this time.  The sentiment stamp I used for this one is from Stampin' Up.
On this one I used a glitter pen in the centers of the flowers, that I think are hollyhock's?  Anyway, I added some thick twine, and a sentiment stamp from the You Mean the World to Me set from CTMH.

I appreciate you visiting, and I love to get comments too.  Let me know which one of these are your favorite, and as they say...take time to smell the flowers!

Happy First Day of Spring ~

The card base and butterfly for this one was made at the Occasional Artist Shop that I've talked about over the past couple of months.  It's embossed on some shiny paper, and I brought it home and added another layer behind it, added a different sentiment, a little glitter tape, and a few sequins.  It looks like Spring to me!

Background stamp - Tim Holtz / Not sure of the butterfly...
Other Stuff - Versamark, embossing powder, inks/sponges, edge distresser, glitter tape, and sequins.
