Before I start, wanted to remind you that several friends are doing giveaways. All you need to do to win is comment on every blog in the hop... easy peasy! Names are drawn randomly and winners announced the following month. At this time, I’d like to congratulate

So, I used Unity’s Just... sorry kit and a retired Simple Stories Vintage Bliss paper pad. I love this image and I was in need of a get well type card. I think this kit is so dang adorable and the colors in this pad so light, I was hoping for a cheerful card. Using papers from a paper pad ensures color coordination amongst the pieces. After stamping, I, basically, cut out each of the particulars areas. I stamped the image, again, on plain Bristol and used my pens and pencils for her hair and face. And this became the base for the rest of the pieces. I created a frame for the image and stamped the sentiment, using the same paper to frame it. I finished the card with crystals.
For the second card, I wanted to herald the arrival of spring with the tulips in the Tulia Girl kit. This time I used some paper scraps, a pretty violet blue check, a plain yellow and a very light patterned green. I painted the image on Bristol paper and fussy cut out the jumpsuit on the green paper. Not liking how busy and overpowering my flowers became, I decided to “mute” them by just using plain stamping on plain colored cardstock. I fussy cut the flower heads out and adhered them. I then decided I wanted a patterned jumpsuit, so using a pencil, I added a check pattern. I cut the piece down letting flowers and shoes hang off the edges a little and used a dark purplish blue and violet papers as backing. To pull this card together, I added a yellow doily and dots and split the sentiment into 2 pieces.
So fun, returning to childhood! And I now have 2 cute cards perfect for the season! I love both of these kits and I encourage you to pick them up if you haven’t already.
