I have two Spring Cards to share with you today. And of course, I made them both for stamping challenges. I think I might have an addiction to challenges!
The first was for a new challenge blog called Crafty Creations. Their theme was Spring, so I thought this newly-purchased Memory Box bird stamp would be perfect.
The bird was water colored with Bashful Blue reinker and has a coat of Under The Sea Blingz - one of the new color releases from Shimmerz. [BTW - check out Shimmerz new and improved website]. Here's a closer look:
The second card is for today's CAS (Clean and Simple) challenge on Splitcoast, which was to use a punch on your card. I turned to my trusty Word Window punch and a brand spanking new A Muse stamp, called Open Zinnia. With this card I also took on Sharon Johnson's ribbon tab challenge and sort of reversed the tab, but I think it still counts!
I stamped flower twice and colored them with copics, cut one out and layered it on top of the other. The flower center has 3 tiny black pearls.
Thanks for visiting!
