Hello Crafty Friends,

Alix here with you sharing couple cards I really enjoyed making with newer and older Pinkfresh Studio products.Feel free to mix and match what you have with your recent new loves to create your Spring cards.

To start up with my first card, I chose a quicker way to prepare my background by using the paper from our wonderful Everyday Musing's collections. I picked my pattern paper and cut it into an A2 sized panel to adhere onto an A2 sized card base.Since the background has pretty much everything artsy look that I needed, I left it as it is. 

I then started to stamp all images from Make a Wish stamp set with dye inks and cut them with the Matching Dies. I always love putting all parts together to make my own unique centerpiece. So I made my cake with my favorite color combo: Pink, Purple and Blue.

To make my centerpiece to pop up, I die cut my frame using Braided Oval Die out of a piece of white card stock. After attaching everything, I stamped my sentiment "Happy Birthday" and hand cut it into rectangle strip. I added foam tape underneath of sentiment before placed it onto the lower part of my card to create dimension.

There you go. A simple but not too simple card is made!

 

Now let us dive into my second card. It's been blooming everywhere to welcome our Spring. Making a card to celebrate it sounds a great idea!

I pulled out a piece of A2 sized watercolor paper and ink blended Tim Holtz Distress oxide ink in Squeezed Lemonade lightly.

Then I stamped images from Bloom & Grow Stamp set onto Bristol Smooth paper with Versafine Tuxedo Black ink. I colored them using Tombow Brush markers and cut with the Matching Dies. I arranged selected colored images onto the background I created by adding foam tapes underneath to create dimensions. 

I stamped the sentiment "from Faith to Faith" to the lower left corner of my card. Then I added some jewel embellishments around the flowers and the butterflies. At last, I splattered black ink over to finish this card.

That finished up my Spring inspiration cards for today, I hope you enjoyed and got inspired. See you all next time!
