More Spring cards...

Well, the snow does not want to quit here in New England.  We are getting ready for another storm.  I am ready for Spring...  It is however Spring in my craft room.  Flowers, butterflies and happy colors.  In my last post, I said I would share more details on the other cards from my last class.  This cards uses the beautiful new Baby Carriage die (#98528).  It is such a sweet die!  I cut it from a pretty floral paper from Little Yellow Bicycle.  I then sanded it gently to help highlight some of the embossed details of the buggy. I colored the wheels with a silver sharpie marker to distinguish them from the rest of the buggy. The Modern Landscape Border (#98257) cut from pool Moroccan paper makes a nice backdrop for the buggy.


Here is a detail shot of the "sky".


I cut the Puffy Clouds (#98172) out of the background and used foam tape to pop them slightly askew so that the floral background paper peeks through. The blue clouds on the white background were created using Brilliance Pearlescent Sky ink and and foam sponge.  I used the back of the cut out clouds as masks and sponged the blue moving the cloud around and repeating to get a natural look.  I stamped "Welcome Little One" (#B1749) in black ink on one of the clouds.  The card base is Peony.  I really like that this cards is good for a baby boy or girl.  It has a lot of dimension in real life that is hard to capture in photos. 

I have a class coming up Thursday evening, March 14th at Ink About It .  If you are local, I'd love to have you join us.  We'll be making more Spring cards that will be great for Easter, Mother's day etc. using more of the fabulous new dies.
