Couple of cards!

Hello there!  It is absolutely beautiful here today!  It makes me very hopeful that Spring is just around the corner! *fingers and toes crossed!*   It put me in a chipper mood which put me in a crafty mood so I sat down and made not one, but two cards!  Wooo hooooo!  Both cards were inspired by things I saw on Pinterest!  I just love it there! :)

This first card technique is called cascading flowers and I believe it came from Brandy of Brandyscards originally.

It is made on a simple Whisper White base and has lots of lovely layered flowers from the stamp set Flower Shop. 

They are layered three high in a couple of places and are punched with the coordinating posy punch.  I tucked in lots of leaves from the Bird Builder punch to break up the color some.  I added a simple sentiment from the Timeless Talk stamp set.  

The second card uses the really cool masking tape technique that I learned from my very talented and sweet friend Carolyn.  You rip off a piece of masking tape and lay it against your stamp pad and then apply it to your card base and gently peel it up.  I tried it with Washi tape and it worked perfectly!

I used the same stamp pads here that I used for the above flower card.  Funny how the colors can be the same, but the card can look so different!  

I punched out two Whisper White circles and stamped this classic bicycle form Timeless Talk onto both of them at the same time.  I matted them against Basic Black circles to make the image pop.  I added Dazzling Diamonds to the wheel swirls and then each one got a rhinestone. The sentiment is from Happy Watercolor and the whole thing is popped up on dimensionals.

I had fun with both of these cards!

Ok, I am going to head out and soak up some of that vitamin D while the day is still pretty!  Hope you have a great day!  I will be back soonest with more to share! :)

we must be pinning the same cards but I like your flower card way better than the one I pinned! I like the bicycle card too and the bright colors splashed across the front.
