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.
