Hi everyone! I made some cheery, happy cards for this day. Feels like Spring outside. My hydrangeas are going crazy - there is even one tiny flower already! Love it. After the rain on Friday the air is crisp and clear.
I am in LOVE with this tiny checked paper! It just seems to go with everything and is a nice patterned neutral - if that makes sense. That checked paper is the common element for these three cards. I also tried to keep it simple and sweet.
The first card is made with some cute trees that I colored with my Copics. Each tree has three shades of green ink. One is with the Green color family and the other with the Yellow Green color family. I kind of like the contrast and visual interest that gives. The tiny birdies are colored with two shades of blue and then coated with two coats of diamond glaze to make them pop off the trees.
The second card is made with this beautiful new stamp I got last week from Stampendous. It reminds me of a California winery with the poppies in the foreground. I also made this my first easel card. I have been admiring others and finally made one! You should try it! Super easy. Directions are on Splitcoast Stampers.
The third card is made with some Martha Stewart bee/hive stickers I got at Michael's a long time ago. I added glitter glue (diamond stickles) to the wings to jazz them up a bit. I always like black and yellow together for cards. Very striking. Another easel card. Maybe I'm hooked...
Thanks for buzzzzzzzing by my blog today!
