The Card Concept Challenge #205 - Spring Has Sprung

Welcome my stampy friends to our new challenge starting today at


Here is our Inspiration Photo: 

I was inspired by the pretty spring colors to create my 

Clean & Layered Style card

~Designer papers, embossing

~Clean lines


~Clean & Fresh looking

~Some colored images

~White space

Here is my card:

First, I stamped the image onto thick white card stock with Versamark Ink.
Next, I sprinkled the stamped image with Gilded Embossing Powder and melted the powder with my Heat Gun.

I water colored the flowers with Stampin Up inks and a water brush. When dry, I used the matching dies to cut out the image.  I adhered foam strips behind the image before attaching it to the pattern paper panel.

I just love how this card turned out!

So Springy!
