Club Scrap Boatancials Blog Hop

 
 
 
 
For me Spring brings sun, flowers and numerous birthdays. I just love the pastel colors in this kit and decided to make cards for all the spring/summer birthdays in my family.
 
 
 
For these first cards I used a sheet of  paper from the Pattern Basic Paper Pack Pastels. It matched the lavender in Botanicals perfectly. I used ribbon from the embellishment pack.
 
 
 
 
These next cards were inspired from a pin on the Club Scrap Botanicals mood board. I just loved the contrast of the yellow paper, the Botanicals stamps in black ink and then the white flowers heat embossed.
 
 
 





For my last two cards I hand colored the Botanicals flower stamp with my Pitt Big Brush markers. I have become totally obsessed with them. I love the effect you get from them and the ability to layer colors.
 
 
 
 
 
 
So bring on the Birthdays! I am ready to go!
I hope you enjoyed my cards.
Next stop on the hop is Deb at Liftbridge Cards and Crafts.
 
 
 
Wishing You a Wonderfully Creative Day!
XOXO
