Spring and Easter Inspired Cards

Hello there crafty peeps :-) 

So I was in the card making mood and made not one but three cards "Gasp" lol... I was so inspired by this season.
I am making a personal challenge to myself to use my stamps more, I love them but I keep forgetting to use them! 

This first card, base is white card stock, layered with yellow CS and embossed with embossing folder, die cut bottom border with Spellbinders Borderbilities. Next stamp my image from a Inkadinkado stamp set and color with Prisma color pencils and cut it out using Spellbinders label die set. Pop image layer with dimensional foam and also the little chicks :-) Sooo CUTE! Do you see the little chick breaking out of the egg - bottom right corner lol...

Second card, base is white CS and on another layer of white CS I did some water coloring (thanks De for the WC pencils) and created a outdoors scenery - LOVE IT! Next layered using MFT Die-Namic "Modern Morocco" die in soft grey on top of the scenery. Using MFT Die-Namics "Tropical Sensation" Die and stamp set, I created my flowers and a couple are pop up using foam. I stamp and fussy cut my Bunny image. Add a few sequins and my sentiment.

Third card, base is white CS layered with light blue CS, which I then using my finger and gesso created the cloudy sky look. Next I layered using yellow CS and MFT Die-Namics "Sun Ray" die and I added Daisy Glitter from Sparkle and Sprinkle, pop up the center of the sun on foam. Hand drew my hills and pop them up too, next stamp my Tulips and fussy cut them out, group them behind each hill. Added my sentiment at the bottom.

So those are my cards, let me know what you think.

  1. Oooh...more beautiful Spring goodness! They're all lovely, Steff, but I must say the last one is my very favorite! Yes, it's pure sunshine! :o) I'm so happy that you're back to blogging! :o)

  2. Great Easter & spring cards Steff! I love the one with the chicks because it looks so artsy the way you coloured it but every one of them is gorgeous! Lovely dies you have too.

  3. Hi, Steff! how gorgeous these are! I like how you always add a little something unexpected in your projects, or "move" the image around a little to make it look slightly different. These are wonderful! Hope you are doing well, Steff, and that eliminating the stress is helping those awful headaches. love, de

  4. These are all so beautiful. Especially like the glittery sun on the last card.

  5. Your cards are beautiful Steff.
    I really like all of the layers and dimension to your cards.
    I also love that you finger painted your clouds

  6. All these cards make me happy. Love the Spring Theme.
