Hooray! Today is officially the first day of Spring and I am hopeful that it is going to bring us some warmer days! :)
In honor of Spring, my first card was inspired by this vase of beautiful, blooming daffodils that are brightening our dining room this week. I used a sketch from 2 Sketches 4 you and came up with this 'Springy' card:
I love this great Kelli Green by Paper Accents along with the BoBunny polka dot paper! I used my Unity grass stamp from the Flirty Flowers set and accented it with some Jolee's stickers. Then I just added my felt thickers and I was done!
Now, I guess March is Youth Art Month and 2 Sketches 4 You is encouraging everyone to have a child in their life create a card using their sketch this week too. It was nice for my oldest son, Tristan (age 6), and I to sit down and do some crafting together. Here is his card:
I have a scrap box that I keep for him with bits of papers and images from my projects that I don't end up using. But for this card I also let him go through all my paper and offered him any embellishments or stamps too. We had fun and he is excited to have his card on my blog where everyone can see it! :)
The third card I have to share with you all today is one I made for the SCS color challenge this week - Kraft, Red, Yellow & Black. I thought these colors would make for a great teacher card and here is what I came up with:
First I carefully stamped Unity's Just my Type letters on the writing line to spell Teacher. Then I thought the yellow paper looked too plain so I stamped Unity's worn grid background stamp in white. The A+ is a Cosmo Cricket sticker and I created the other circle using Unity's School Rock Star set. To finish it off I added a little paper clip and some American Crafts ribbon. Then I popped the whole main panel and circle up on foam squares to give a little dimension.
Thanks for visiting today...Angela is having an amazing 30% off sale through Sunday so it is a great time to get yourself some Unity! :) I'll be back tomorrow with my EtsyInspired project!
