Krafty cuts

Happy Monday everyone! What gorgeous weather we're having - all the daffodils are out, the trees are in blossom and the birds are singing louder - spring is definitely in the air! (Thank goodness!)

Here are two more cards using the Fresh Cuts set - this time with the leafy spring stamp. I've used my favourite Kraft cardstock for both, along with Not Quite Navy and Sage Shadow - I just love this colour combo.

Papers are from the Level 1 hostess paper pad (in Kraft). I coloured the stamp with my markers then stamped it three times, then added dots with a white gel pen for some 'pop'. The ribbon is the yummy new striped ribbon from the Mini.

Again I used papers from the Level 1 hostess paper pack, this time in Not Quite Navy. I randomly stamped the flower image to form a circle around the sentiment - also in the Fresh Cuts set. Again I added some white dots to the flowers and inked the edge of the circle with white ink.

Thanks for stopping by today!
