Stampsmith Spring Theme Challenge

Hi Everyone,

It is Stampsmith Challenge time again. I have decided on a Spring theme for this Challenge. And, as it it the 15th, you will have to use a Stampsmith image to be eligible for the gift certificate drawing. You will have until April 30 to complete and link up your creation. For my Spring card, I used the "Those Were The Days" full sheet which is available in The Stampsmith Shop. Here is a peek at the full sheet. Just image all the fun cards you could make with this set!!


Super fun set. I used one of the images and some very Springy DP from Karen Foster Designs. Take a look.

I stamped the image with black dye ink on glossy white CS. It was layered with Lavender to Dark Purple CS from TPC. The flowers are cut out from the DP. I added them to the card using dimensional squares. The sentiment was stamped with some clear Alphabet stamps (Scrappy Cat). I stamped them twice in two inks: black and Perfect Plumeria (Versa Magic) then embossed with clear powder. Here are some close ups.

Isn't that image the Funnest!!?? I am going to put this in one of my neighbor's mailbox. I think she will like all the bright colors. I will write a little note on the inside. Here is what the inside looks like.

A few other Challenges for "Think Spring":

Cute Card Thursday: Weather inspired
Pals Paper Arts: Flowers
