Spring is HERE!

Hello my crafty friends,

Today is the First Day of Spring. Are you excited?! looks like these little guys are!

I just adore all these fun stamps from Eat Cake Graphics. They make me soooo happy! I colored with my Spectrum Noir Markers as follows:
  • Leaves CG4, CG3, CG1 
  • Grasshoppers DG3, CG2, CG1
  • Eyes IB2 
  • Flowers GB4 
  • Background BT1, GG1, Blender 
I stamped the leaves and grasshopper again on white cardstock, colored and fussy cut. You can see in the closeup pic how I popped up some of the leaves and the jumping grasshopper. I also added some glitter and glaze.

For the clouds I hand-cut a stencil and sponged Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. The die-cut cloud is from Memory Box, and worked perfectly for the sentiment. I also sponged a bit of distress ink on the top edges of that piece, plus added a few orange rhinestones.

The Eat Cake Graphics stamps that I used to design my fun first day of Spring card:
