PTI Spring Challenge

Spring colors make this card so Springy. I used the Beautiful Blooms dies with  Happiness in Blooms centers. I also used the Leave It for the various leaves. The cardstock is Summer Sunrise, Raspberry Fizz, Simply Chartreuse and  Ripe Avocado. Bo Bunny dot is used for the accents Bring on Spring.

PTI Challenge: Spring Card

Doodlie-Do wins again for the stamp design I chose. I used Copics in Spring
Colors and added my own Zen tangles to fill in the spaces in between
If you don't know what Zen tangles is- it's controlled doodling. It's all over Pinterest and
is very therapeutic they say. It's my first attempt and I found it very time consuming but fun.
I adhered the twine on the back of the button with glue dots and used Liquid Pearls in the
centers of the other flowers.

Spring Fling - I'm ready.

Here are a couple of "Springy" cards:
Forget Me Not from My Favorite Things gives you three flowers from which to choose. The cute buttons are from Lasting Impressions and the only ones I know of that are that small. There is also one a little smaller than that for baby embellishments. Too cute.

I used Graphic 45 Secret Garden paper and die cut several petals from PTI's Lovely Layers. I love that soft palette of this paper. The Tag behind the flower is from PTI Tag Sale #4.

Another PTI Challenge:
This time I used the other Friends Frame and made a shaker box with flowers from the Best is Yet to Be.
Day 6 PTI Challenge:
Using a word as a focal point. Back to the Doodlie-Do stamp (my favorite) and Friends from the Wonderful Words Friend die. The sentiment is from the same set. I did put a clear cardstock behind my window and raised the front panel with foam dots.

7 Minute Challenge

This was PTI's 7 minute challenge. I used scraps, one rick rack die, 3 buttons and
one of the free printables I had already cut out. I almost didn't make it but fortunately I had some circles already cut. Whew!

Drop Shadow Die Cuts

I love this Shadow Die Cut MIM by Betsy Veldman, she  never ceases to amaze.
I used the Hearts Cover Plate to impress my background. The flowers are from
Happiness in Bloom as well as the leaves. Friends is from Wonderful Words Friends
as is the Forever on the Bountiful Banners. It was a fun card to make and I will use
this idea many times in the future.
