Spring has Sprung

Good morning Steph here with my first post as a member of the team and I am extremely excited to be a part of this talented group.

The temperatures are finally turning warmer after our cold and dreary winter so I wanted to create a spring themed card.

Susan's Fly Away stamp set by Unity stamps contains 3 stamps - a sun, a cloud and a kite.  I stamped the sun and clouds from this set  then added some color with Pan Pastels and Clearsnap Chalk Ink. I fussy cut them before adding to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.

I die cut a trellis and added small flowers (which I also edged with Pan Pastels) and a tiny wood butterfly.  I felt the butterfly needed to leave a trail along his journey so I placed drops of The Best Glue Ever from ScraPerfect to create his trail, then placed some dew drops from the Robin's Nest on the glue spots.

A sweet sentiment was stamped on a chipboard tag and then nestled amongst the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by today.
