Guest Designer Blog Cards 028
Hello and Happy Friday everyone! Thank you Mischelle and The Angel Company for asking me to be part of this awesome event, I'm honored to be among such talented stampers! I chose T-3231 Springtime Garden to share with you today. These are the perfect stamps for spring and I had so much fun creating with this set.

My first card has a bookmark attached along one side that I scored with a perforating blade.I found the Emma Collection  of papers to be wonderful for this style because they are double sided. I love this bird house image from this set and it was a great fit for the bookmark side.I used the thank you sentiment from T-3393 You Whoo such a fun playful font. If you'll notice I used the smaller floral from the emma collection and used my Copics to change the colors of some of the flowers to match my polka dot paper.

On this card I stuck with warm tones to match the Emma floral print...You would never know this was the same paper I used on my first card... A green Labels 5 shape was cut in half and embellished with a button for a nice touch.

This card is one of my favorites... I just love how this one turned out! I cut around the flowers on the tag with my kraft knife and slid my image underneath for a fun look.

This is a smaller card, it measures 3 1/2"x 4 1/2". For this card I did some fussy cutting to remove the sign from this image it gives it a totally diffent look!  I used my Labels 5 Nestabilitie to make a magnetic bookmark that clips onto the top of this card. Guest Designer Blog Cards 038
Here it is without the card...I stamped the butterfly on a small beaded ovals shape then cut out another butterfly and popped the wings up.. Colored with my Copics then added some crystal stickles for a little bling and finished it off with a pretty ribbon. I adhered a 2" magnet strip inside.

For my final project I thought these cute little Bunny's would be perfect for this Easter Gable Box! I stamped them on a Labels 4 shape and colored the flowers, I stamped again on some White Premium CS colored with my Copics and cut them out..than I used Pop Dots to pop them up for more dimension.   Guest Designer Blog Cards 045
