I have 2 cards to share with you today, both with a Spring/Easter theme, but very different cards as you will see! The first is using the gorgeous cross from the Ippity What Matters Most set:
My next card is one I made as part of a challenge I issued to myself earlier this year - once I month I pledged to get out a brand new supply or tool, something I "had to have" but has just been sitting here waiting for me to have time to use it. So here is my challenge card for March:
The card uses 2 Ippity sets: Sweet Thoughts of Spring and What Matters Most . The new supply I used on this card is Smooch Paint. Now I have to admit, a large part of the reason I bought this paint was because it is just so darn cute in those little fingernail polish bottles... what a way to make a buying decision, right? But I'm sure glad I did , because I loved using it! I used Taffy to color in the hearts on this cute little chick, and Taffy and Sugarplum on the flowers. I also covered the body of the chick using moonlight to give the little guy an "all over" glow. What I love about this paint is it is both shimmery and opaque - so even though I stamped the stem of the flowers using Burnt Umber, I was able to use Green Apple paint over it to turn the leaves shimmer green. The brush applicators are great too - pointed tips so you can apply it to very small areas, and stiff enough that I could use the side to rub it across the chick very quickly. I had loads of fun making this cute little springy card! Other supplies:
Paper: SU Certainly Celery Cardstock and Print Patterns, SU Welcome Neighbor DP. Ink: Palette Burnt Umber. Other: Nesties and Martha Stewart grass punch, adhesive pearls.
