Glad the winter storms have ended the drought, but it's really nice to sunshine for a few days. Fritz thinks the best thing in the world is laying on the deck in the sun & I love being able to walk him without wearing a raincoat! There are crocus in bloom & daffodil shoots in lots of flower beds we pass, so Spring is on the way.
I send lots of cards for no special reason, so love my hello stamps & dies. My first card is for W&W 3rd BD Bash--Pattern-Making with Mayuri.
I used pink & green Altenew inks with W&W In Bloom: Addie's Garden. This is my first time to use this set & my first time to finally stamp using the back's of the stamps.
I added some black splatters & used my beloved W&W hello die which I heat embossed with JudiKins Iridescent Sparkle powder. The panels are die cut with AJVD Polka Dot Backdrop Rectangles. I'm also entering Die Cut Divas, SSS Work it Wednesday & Word Art Wednesday.
Next is my card for PTI MIM--Stamped Dangles. I had never used the hello stamp from Wonderful Words: Hello--just the die.
I liked Amy's sample with it, so that's what I used along with the coordinating sentiment & little stamps from Autumn Adornments, Harvest Berries & Heart 2 Heart #2. Gotta admit, I thought this one was going to end up in the trash, but just kept going using Amethyst Allure, Spring Rain, Lovely Lady, Sweet Blush & Vintage Jadeite. Really should have done a practice run, but I like the idea & it'll go in the mail. I did add a bit of Stickles--always good to have sparkle! I'm also entering SSS Monday. I'm catching up on blog reading--don't think I've forgotten you!
