Spring Postage Due! CCMC297

There are signs of spring everywhere!  We've had some warm sunny days and the trees are budding out... so pretty when they're covered in little flowers!  This and more inspired me toward spring colors and flowers for my Challenge card for Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge today.


What an enjoyable sketch!  I used the Postage Due set, sponging the stamp with several colors before stamping.  Then I added a few smudges on the cardstock with the daubers and layered it onto Pumpkin Pie cardstock. The Eiffel Tower stamp in the set was stamped in Wisteria Wonder and punched out with the perfect Postage Stamp punch!


Some little spring-y flowers were scattered around and centered with small Basic Pearls.  Love those things!  Wisteria Wonder Chevron Ribbon strips extending from behind the panel and around the card is the finishing touch!  This card makes me think of enjoying the outdoors this time of years!  (Oh yes, and I would like to be in Paris in the springtime, too.  You?)

Stamps:  Postage Due set
Ink:  Wisteria Wonder, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake
Paper:  Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder
Accessories:  Wisteria Wonder Chevron Ribbon, Basic Pearls, Postage Stamp punch, Sponge Daubers, BoHo Blossoms Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack


This is a fun and easy sketch today from Create with Connie and Mary!

Beautiful! Love the sponging and the punched flowers. A perfect spring kind of card.

Absolutely beautiful! I would never be able to sponge this stamp as nicely as you did! Any tips for a fellow design team member? I love this stamp, but have never done it any other way but monochromatically. Love this!
