Paperwings SPRING blog hop

Hi everyone! A few of the Angels over at Paperwings are participating in a Spring themed blog hop today, since it is the first day of Spring and all. Here is my card!


All stamps and paper are from The Angel Company. Paper is from More Mimi and the flower stamps are from Found Joy. Stems are stamped in Palette Jardin Moss and the flowers are stamped in pink chalk ink. White pearls are used for the flower centers.

I cut the fame out using Spellbinders nestabilities dies, I forget which set of labels this one is. I added the Think Spring (tag tid bits stamp set) tag onto the frame by tying it with pink scrappers floss. The tag was made out of the same paper as the background from the More Mimi collection. The shape on the bottom was done using the cornice border punch from Martha Stewart Crafts. I added a medium eyelet using my crop-o-dile (which hasn't seen a lot of use in a while).

I just realized that the flower stamp set above might be retired. I can't find it in any publication, unless I'm not seeing things right. If any Angel out there knows differently, please leave a comment! :-) So, below is my revised card, using a current stamp set.


Just changed up the main image with the flower from Blossoms and Blessings set. It's colored with Copic markers and highlighted with a stardust yellow pen. The background clouds are done with Summer Sky Memento ink and my cloud brass template.


Here are the Angels who are participating! Please visit their blogs and leave them some "love."

Great cards - love the soft colors and I think you are right - the first set is "retired" but that is okay - still very pretty.
