Spring Has Sprung

Hi everyone and happy Wednesday,

Today's card I made to participate in the "Follow the Recipe" challenge (FTR #7) on the Catered Crop blog. This concept looked like fun and so I decided to give it a try. Here's the card that I came up with:

Here's the FTR #7 recipe:

  • Pattern Paper – Plaids or Stripes
  • Colors – Spring, pastel colors
  • Stamps – bunny rabbits, flowers (especially violets)
  • Color Mediums – Copic markers, printer's ink (yep, it's a digital image)
  • Embellishments – pearls, ribbon, felt, flowers
  • Tools – Circle, lace, doily, flower, or curly flourish punches or die cuts
  • Techniques – highlighting around an image, handmade or rolled flower embellishments, tying bows
  • Theme – Spring, Easter, Birthday
  • Shapes – Circles, lace and doilies, curly flourishes.

The rules say to use any of the ingredients to make a project or card and I was able to use most in mine. Here are the supplies I used at each element:

Patterned paper:  Basic Grey Koshi flowers and plaid
Card stock colors: TE pastels
Stamps: Amber Ink bunny and TE Favorite Peeps
Color Mediums: Copics, printed digi stamp, SU bravo burgundy ink
Embellishments: Zva pink pearls, Kaiser rhinestones, sewing machine, felt rolled flowers
Tools: lace doily from TE, big scalloped Nestie, Die-namics rolled flower die, TE background die
Techniques: felt rolled flowers, ribbon "leaves"
Theme: Easter/Spring
Shapes: circles, doily
Other supplies: the Big Shot, dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by,
