Spring is in the air...

It was a beautiful day yesterday. We had fun outside getting some fresh air, and I'm getting the ITCH for spring! Can't wait to do some gardening again. I also had fun creating some spring cards with some of the new Attic Treasures and Fresh Twist lines from Melissa Frances over the weekend....Beauty of Spring card: I created a little kite on this one with some scraps and used a spring rub on for the "tail".
Melissa Frances products used:
Maxine, Charlotte, Peyton, Lilly, Abigail and Haley papers
White Pearls
Fresh Twist die cut
Doodles Transfers (bee and swirl)
Spring Fling Transfers (saying)
Other: Machine stitching and brown chalk

Spring is in the Air card: I created a little flower with the die cut and some ribbon loops. Added pom pom trim, a bit of embroidery floss and a silk flower in the middle. I used a hot glue gun for these items, as it works much better than adhesive.

Some Bunny (Hearts) You card: I used 2 oval shaped stickers to create Easter eggs and glittered them up a bit! Cut the die cut journaling spot down and used as a little tag for the Happy Easter sentiment.

Boy card: I used the Attic Treasures die cut paper and cut it in half, then folded it in half again to create this unique card shape. Added some punched circles and stitched on them to resemble buttons. Created this one for the next challenge at Cardalicious this week: to create a card using circles, stars and stitching.
