And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Think Spring!

Hello friends!'s starting to look and feel more like spring.  Splashes of pink, yellow and purple are bursting into bloom.  Today I am sharing several purple cards including one that was made for the 2018 Mega Sponsor Spring Blog Hop for Our Daily Bread Designs.

Creative Nugget:  Papers from the Whimsical Wildflowers Collection and the Pastels Paper Pack were stitched together to make the background.  The Trellis Strip Die was used to cut two borders which were layered over the papers.  Two hyacinths from the Easter Greetings set were stamped onto a Large Banner die cut and colored with Copic Markers.  A third hyacinth was cut and popped up over the sentiment which was split onto a Pennant Flag die cut.  A jute twine bow was added to finish the card.

The next two cards were made for the ODBD Two for Tuesday feature.

Creative Nugget:  The design for this card is from CAS(E) this Sketch.  Different shades of purple Distress Oxide Inks were used to create the simple background which was cut with a Pierced Rectangle Die.  An area for the sentiment was masked and the flowers from the To My Friend stamp set were stamped in Archival Jet Black ink and embossed with clear sparkle embossing powder.  A gemstone was placed in the middle of each flower and some sequins added for additional sparkle.  The sentiment was stamped in the masked off area.

For the stepped up version, an Oval was die cut from the flowers and framed with a die cut made with one of the Layered Lacey Ovals.  The sentient was stamped on a Pierced Rectangle die cut and butterflies from The Greatest Gift Stamp/Die Duo were added.

These cards will be submitted for the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by...take time to enjoy Spring today!
