Welcome to the March RemARKables Blog Tour!!
You probably hopped here from Anne‘s blog, but in case you get lost, all the links are at the bottom!
What a difference a month makes, huh?! Freezing cold to absolutely gorgeous outside 🙂 That was my inspiration for today’s cards!
I suppose it depends on what you pair it with, but Mint Macaron reminds me of a cool spring breeze… I love this piece of paper from the Birthday Bouquet DSP with the balloons on it! So I just made a 3-D version of the paper to “float” on the card using a Honeycomb Embellishment, a bow from the Balloon Celebration Framelits in Blushing Bride Glimmer paper, White Baker’s twine, and set off by the beautiful Watermelon Wonder satin ribbon!
The next card uses one of the FREE Sale-a-Bration sets!! Super cute, and the first time I’ve played with it (I’d intended to play with it with the card above, but then it just wound up being a no-stamp card HAHA). I pulled out 2 colors I don’t use that often (was hard pressed to find some scraps to cut out the “happy” with!), Wild Wasabi and So Saffron. I stamped the little chick with my Memento black ink pad on some watercolor paper, and used my Blender Pen to color him in with So Saffron ink. The paper didn’t hold up as well as I thought, but that’s okay–chicks are supposed to be fuzzy!! LOL) I then used the Crazy About You bundle to top it off with a Happy Spring… I could’ve gone Easter, I know, but it was just so dang nice when I was coming home today that I was feeling springy! 🙂
Here is a close-up of the layered 2 happys (very easy with the Fine Tip Glue Pen!!).
Hope you’ve enjoyed what I had for you today! Enjoy the rest of the blog tour and the rest of your Sale-A-Bration!!
