Hey there! Our family is getting back from a really fun Easter weekend with great friends AND a big ole illness for my youngest. It’s been a crazy week but I am so glad to be here and give you a little more inspiration for this month’s Papertrey release.

For this first card I die cut the Mix & Mat: Scallops lace die twice from watercolor paper and then watercolored it with a few coordinating inks. I mounted the lace piece into a Soft Stone cardstock card base and stamped the “hugs” sentiment from the Lowercase Botanical Letters stamps. The flowers are stamped from the GORGEOUS Gran’s Garden stamp and die sets.

For my second card I went with a dramatically simple style.

I really wanted to show off the quote on this Melon Berry Cardstock so I stamped it once in black ink right onto the card base and then again on white cardstock. I cut out the top portion and mounted it directly on top of my card base using extra dimensional adhesive to really pop it up.

I have 3 projects for you today, starting with one of my favorites. I used multiple colors for the letters and then kept the florals in the centers all in black. The “with” was actually a sentiment from the Ways To Say: Thank You stamp set that I masked off and of course the Smokey Shadow cardstock layer was created with two of the dies from the Mix and Mat: Flourishes die set.

My next card uses the Nesting Cover Plate die. I kept a lot of the colors in this card white to sort of make it look like birds in a nest in snow. 🙂

My last card is an almost one layer card with the exception of the two little birdies. I decided to stamp them with leaves instead of the birdie stamps for a completely unique look.
