New Spring Cards

It's almost here...My all time favorite season~Spring!

Here is a close look at a few projects I made.  All projects were made using CTMH products from the NEW Spring catalog.

For my first card I used the new Chantilly paper pack, and cardstock in black, pear, lagoon and cotton candy.  I used the stamp sets, Distrssed Backgrounds and Happy Thoughts with Versa mark, used clear embossing powder, and a heat gun to create a subtle background.  Then I cut out the flowers and leaves using the Art Philosophy cartridge.  I used Happy Thoughts again to create patterns on the cardstock using coordinating CTMH ink pads.  I stacked the flowers and embellished with buttons, twine, Chantilly Textiles and the flower on the upper left: it started as a clear acrylic flower.  I used CTMH pigment ink, clear embossing powder and a heat gun...to turn a clear acrylic flower into the color of my choice.  I also used My Friend for the sentiment.  I hope you like it!

The card I made was a pinwheel card using the Claire paper packet.  It was super quick, I tried to stay clean and simple.  I made the pinwheel and used the upcoming May stamp of the month Pinwheel.  I used Kraft, Outdoor Denim and White Daisy cardstock.

The last card I used our new Paper Pouches as an envelope I accessorized.  I used
Slate, White Daisy and Lagoon cardstock.  Just a sliver of the new Surf's Up paper pack, and new FABULOUS Washi tape and
4 My Friend again... 

Here is the card using the same paper, cardstock and Washi Tape...Quick and simple using clouds cut out from the Artiste.  The stamp set is Card Chatter-Sympathy...This is a MUST have!  The sun is from New Baby.
