Hello! Today I have a quick, simple and pretty Spring card to share with you. But before I get started I just wanted to let you know the Welcome Spring 20% Off Selected Items Sale at JustRite Stampers will be coming to a close very soon! But you still have a couple of days to take advantage of the sale--the sale ends April 30th!Here is the card I created using one of the stamp sets from the Welcome Spring 20% Off Selected Items Sale at JustRite Stampers. The stamp set is called Tiny Words Centers & Borders Set, it includes 10 Centers and 10 Interchangeable Borders and it fits the 1-3/16'' Wood Stamper.To start I stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock and cut/embossed the circle using Standard Circles Large S4-114 Die #2 die template from Spellbinders™. Before removing the cardstock I used the die template as a stencil and inked through with pink ink. Then I cut/embossed a scalloped circles for the mat using Big Scalloped Circles Small S4-250 Die # 3 die template from Spellbinders™ and added 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™ and layered the two pieces together.For the next step I used the Tulips Pendant S4-209 die template from Spellbinders™ to cut/emboss a pendant diecut using Core'dinations White Wash cardstock and then I sanded it. I also used a piece of Pretty Pink cardstock from WolrdWin to cut/emboss a second pendant. Then I added a light pink ribbon to the pendant diecut and applied it to a piece of white cardstock. I used 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™ to adhere the pink tulip pieces. As you can see from the picture I used one of the small 3D Foam Squares on the larger tulip and then cut the 3D Foam Square in half for the middle size tulip and quartered it for the smallest tulip. By adding the 3D Foam Squares you can really add some dimension to your projects. I used one of the accent pieces from the Tulips Pendant S4-209 die template from Spellbinders™ to make a couple of little tulip diecuts. I inked the die template with two colors of ink for the Reverse Stencil Technique and then ran the paper and die template through the Wizard™ as usual. Once all of the pieces were cut I started to assemble the card. I used E-Z Runner® (31') from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™ to adhere all of the layers together.For a finishing touch I added a few tiny pearls.

The sun is shinning and it has warmed up a bit today but we are supposed to have rain for the next few days. I know we need the rain but I hate it when it's cold and gloomy. It was kind of a sad day in our house, we discovered that Teddy my youngest son's hamster died. My little guy is so sad... it's hard being little and having to go through these life experiences for the first time. We had to have a little hamster funeral and say some prayers as I am sure many moms have done this with their children. But my little guy did smile when he thought about Teddy being up in heaven and running in a giant hamster wheel and having lots of treats. *wink*
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you can take a little creative time for yourself--enjoy!
Hugs & Smiles,
