Hello Spring-Coffee And Cards With Celeste And Deb


Hello and happy Sunday! Today marks the first day of Spring so Deb and I decided to celebrate by creating cards that celebrate Spring. To create my card I started by stamping and coloring the bird houses from Unity Stamp Company's KOTM March 2019 Gather Love onto white cardstock, colored them using my Copics, heat embossed them for a crisp shiny look, and fussy cut them out. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set onto more white cardstock, heat embossed it, and fussy cut it out. I stamped the butterfly from Unity Stamp Company's Go Get It Girl stamp set, colored it, embossed it, and fussy cut it out. I then die cut a circle panel using a pierced edge circle die from My Favorite Things and stamped the house image again, colored it, and heat embossed it. I layered some beautiful patterned papers from the American Crafts Welcome Spring 6x6 paper pad onto my white A2 card base. I adhered the houses directly onto the white circle panel and then popped the sentiment and butterfly up off of the card using 3M foam tape. To finish my card off by adding some clear rhinestones by Recollections around the focal panel. 
I had to stop in to my local Panera today while doing my grocery shopping and opted for a nice iced almond vanilla cold brew! Now, be sure to stop by Debra's blog and see what springtime fun she created this month!

Joyfully lovely springtime greeting. This makes me wish we had a birdhouse (or ten!) in our yard. Perhaps one day. For now, I will take inspiration from your beautiful greeting and look for even more ways to weave birds and their abodes into my papercrafting this sunny season.

Big hugs & the happiest of April wishes,
