Springtime Melody

'A colorful spring cards that sings!  I knew all the ink pads and stamps were going to come out dto decide which ones were going to be used.  

It started by stamping a red grid on the paper.  Thend the center of the card was die cut so it could be layered.  Laying the die cut back into the white cardstock, the floweres were stamped in two layers, lifhter and then darker.  Leaves, music, yellow flowres and words were stamped.  The hearts were stamped and embossed in red.  Once the paper was full, it was layered up.  Then the birds were die cut and embossed in white.  A few sequins were added to finish the card.

I have found a new way to start my day.  I get up and wake my son.  Then I make my coffee.  I sit in an overstuffed chair until I have finished two cuts and then the day begins!

I do not koow what happened to the jump up, throw colotes on, collect children to get dressed etc.  I think it is retirement!!

A Double Feature

Hi stamping frineds!  Today's spring fling is a double feature.  That's right,  two cards for spring.

It all starts with this Mojo Monday sketch.

First, three stripes of watercolor was put on the cardstock and dried.  The words, birds and sentiment were stamped and embossed with black.  The music notes were embossed in white.  A few rectangles were drawn with a black sharpie and some clear sequins were added.

This spring, my last son is graduating.  He has been so easy to raise, is quick witted and just fun to have around.  He will be greatly missed wherever his journey takes him.  The front panel is a dentist appointment card that had CONGRATS embossed in white.  I had enough left to emboss the hat and diploma.  Now, I need some background paper.  Distress inks were used to get the blues and greens to match the top panel.  Not bad, pretty close match.  Next, stamp and emboss the stars. Then it was sprayed with glimmer mist.  OOH, sparkly! Everything was popped uo for my graduate!

Thank You Birdie

Hi stamping friends!  Today for the Spring Fling I am using ONE stamp set!  If you are just starting to collect STAMPlorations stamps, For The Birds is a great set to start with.

Start by cutting one and a half inches off the bottom of the front of the card stock.  Then  repeatedly stamp the sentiment on the rest of the front.  Glue a one and a half inch piece of patterned paper on the bottom of the back cardstock.  You can pick any color in the patterned paper  to do your stamping with.  In this case, pink, green, yellow or brown would have worked too.  Stamp and fussy cut your bird.  A small strip of solid paper was glued to the front of the card.  An oval tab, greenery, twine and an eye was added to the bird.

Don't forget to hop along and leave comments for a chance to win prizes!  I hope you make this one stamp set wonder!

Island Girl

AAH spring, glorious spring!  The temps are heating up, the flowers will be sprouting and the birds will be chirping!  I forgot to mention STAMPlorations is hosting a spring fling blog hop for 12 glorious days!  Yup, a post each day filled with tons of inspiration and chances to win prizes!

We are starting this spring fling hop with a newly released face stencil.  These stencils are just the base and you can create the rest however you want!  One word here...versatile!

I started by tracing through the stencil with a fine point black sharpie.  I used a red sharpie for her lips. Then I took a pencil and lightly penciled in the hairline.  I went around the hairline with leaves.  The hair was filled in with flowers and by partially stamping the flower outline with brown.  Using another stencil, the areas around the  image was stenciled with pink.  A button with the shaft removed was glued in the center of the large flower.  Adding a word die finishes off this island girl!

For more inspiration, hop along with the other STAMPgirls and leave them some comments!  Come back each day to see the new inspiration and happy spring!
