Had some fun today, with something old and something new! The old, is the Background Basics Farm & Barn. When I purchased this set, it was for the chicken wire, but I've only used the barn wood! Ha, that's changed now, as I used it for the clear embossing for this technique! The new is Painted Petals, which hadn't seen ink yet. What a fun set to play around with! I used some fun springy colors on this beautiful Easter weekend!

What interesting inspiration we've had this month! Izziyana Suhaim is an amazing artist, that Nicole choose to get our creative juices rolling. I chose this piece for inspiration, but all of the artwork is uniquely interesting!
Here is my card...
I started with Soft Stone Cardstock, and embossed just the line images from Vintage Linens in white. Then I used the the flowers and leaves from Embroidered Blooms, using colors that were a little different for me. The final dots in the centers were embossed in gold. My sentiment is also embossed in gold on vellum, cut with a Boutique Borders die cut.
Hope you enjoy all of the inspired creations this month. Can't wait to see what you've made!
I have another Easter card today. I've sent this off to my Mother in Law in Florida. Hope she likes it!

I chose a quick and easy card, based on Maile's sweet new SPLITS series. I have the first set, and am eager to add the second one tonight! For my card, I created her look using Boutique Borders Thanks, Over Under Easy,, and Pretty Peonies.

I have a new love for my daubers and blending tools. I'm enjoying my stencils, and now a new way to use multiple colors on my stamps.

One of my dear coworkers is expecting her second son in early April, so I've made this for her.

It seems like I only create for Make it Monday's, but I really do make other things! It's just the thing I like to blog about the most! And this week we have another great challenge from Betsy.
I love these new stencils, and this is just another great way to use them. My colors are Sweet Blush, Lavender Moon, Winter Wisteria, and Plum Pudding. I made this for a coworker to give to his wife, who loves Lavender! The sentiment is from Script Sentiments, and the flowers from Brushed Blooms. And since he doesn't have to mail it, I used some Winter Wisteria satin ribbon too!
Have fun trying this out!
Just had to add another one I made today. Did I say how much I love these stencils??
