Welcome Spring

This weekend was so nice.  My daughter is on spring break and just came home and the weather is so lovely.  You know Spring is just around the corner.  It is hard to believe that Easter is in just a few weeks.  I can hardly wait!!  I am definitely in the mood to make some spring cards.

This card used the new set, Happy Spring.  This frolicking bunny is stamped and heat embossed with black detail EP and colored with markers and a dove blender.  I layered her on a sparkly Doily Circle die cut from Tear-ific Tape.  Cloud NineVelvet Glitter was added to the die and the edges sponged with yellow ink to give it the bright yellow coloring.

The sparkly border is created by punching sticker paper with two different border punches.  A combination of more Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter and the new Mountain Mint Velvet Glitter was added using the Masking on Velvet Glitter technique.  Full details of this card can be found in the gallery here.

Make sure you come back on Thursday to join the Sparkle N Sprinkle “My Favorite Technique” blog hop.

Have a wonderful week and make sure you have turned those clocks ahead!!

Awesome card Marie! Love your frolicking bunny. My favorite part is the two sided border with the green grass and the little yellow flowers - very clever!

A BEAUTIFUL card, Marie! Love all the glitter. Seriously, my favorite technique is coloring on cloud nine - it doesn't get any easier, and the results are always amazing. Your card, as always, is so full of happiness and lots to see. Vibrant colors, plenty of sparkle, interesting elements - just beautiful! hugs, de
