Spring Time

is the new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and so appropriate for this glorious Sunday morning, birds singing, sun shining and all those light nights to look forward to what more could we want … don’t answer that 🙂 The amazing Design Team have made some gorgeous projects to inspire you … with lots of yummy stamping because that’s what FSC is all about … and we have our resident guest designer joining us this week with such a pretty card that you won’t want to miss.

My card has a very subtle, soft and pastel feel to it … I have always loved very pastel colour tones for the spring and summer especially white.
Another waterfall card for my DT project with two very floaty flowers that I made from netting and a piece of material from Laura Ashley also the mat at the back has been dry embossed then punched the corners. The stamped image was cut out with a large rectangle nestability and matted onto a scalloped one loved how, when matted, it looked like a postage stamp.

    Hi Shirl, I have never seen a waterfall card before your postings! I always like the surprises that are sometimes hidden in a card, it always adds intrigue. I love the subtle colours of Spring that you have used, and such a feminine card! Makes me think of Spring Love. Very beautiful Shirl.
