Evening Tea Party with The Stampsmith

Hello Dreamers,
Well, we have had snow this morning.  Seemed like Spring would come early.  At least the snow is melting on the shoveling needed.  LOL.    So, it in not Spring yet, but I am so in  a Spring color mood.  I have two pretty Spring colored cards to share today.   I used stamps from The Stampsmith's full sheet called Sunday Evening Tea.

This sheet is so cute.  I, of course, could not stamp just one and made a whole set of cards with this sheet.
The main image is stamped with Vintage Sepia from Versafine on pale pink CS (Blush Blossom from Stampin' Up).  I used an embossing folder to add a bit of texture.   The darker pink ink is Spun Sugar Distress Ink (Ranger) added with a distressing tool.

Here is a close up.  I added some more ink with a Q-tip to color in the window,window frame, apron, and bowls.

I continued the theme with this small card ( 3" x 4 1/2").  This is a nice size for a gift tag or to tuck in a gift bag.  I stamped the image on Apricot Appeal (SU) with Vintage Sepia ink.  Card base is Pretty in Pink CS (SU).  Distress ink color on this card is Victorian Velvet (Ranger).

Are you into Spring colors too??   I have been making everything is Spring colors.  Wishful thinking, I guess. LOL
