Bright spring cards

It's definitely feeling like spring here this morning, so much warmer then it has been. And it's looking like we're going to have some rain as well. I cannot believe how green the grass is already, considering just a couple weeks ago it was covered in almost 3 feet of snow. We did some spring cleaning of my office this past weekend, and even grilled out both nights. 
I have a bunch of cards to share with you, if you remember me saying I had done quite a few last week. Now I have a new light in my office and hopefully a new way to take pics, hoping for no more dark dingy photos!

Wood grain paper, a frame and a glittered butterfly!  I used Reminisce paper and frame all from Unwritten for this card. The bfly was cut from another frame, then I glittered it all up. I added some flowers and buttons to the center of it. I also added a cut out oval trimmed with my scallop scissors in the middle of the frame, adding a strip of paper across that. I added a printed out greeting, finished on each end with gems. 

Enjoy your day! This summery colored card uses scraps of cardstock layered with a scrap of Bobunny paper. I added in a Reminisce bracket frame, cut from a card, then added a bit of Reminisce diecut border. I added these K&Co flowers- all glittered- Kelly gave me these! To finish it I added letter stickers from CI, MM and Reminisce.

Oh how I wish you could see the glitter on this! The background strip is Jazmyne paper from Bobunny, I added on a piece of Reminisce glittered paper, then added a zigzag cut strip on top. I tied a ribbon, added some silk flowers and put in a few frond things to the bow. I also added a strip of white I added rubons to, then ruffled the end. Scalloped a bit more of Jazmyne and put that across the bottom of my greeting. I finished the card with two buttons.

Make a Wish- I used some more Reminisce paper for this card, the orange dot and the wood grain. I added a chipboard piece from CI, adding some K&co felt flowers to the side, and topped it with a bobunny ribbon. I used MM felt letters for the greeting and a strip cut from some CI diecut paper.

Mix and Match card. I used two colors of Bobunny dot cardstock for the background of my card. I also took and reversed a MM tear out strip and put that under the quote block from Around the Block. Then I used a Hambly clear sticker, added a bobunny button and Martha felt cupcake. I added the computer printed greeting with a tiny gem to finish.

Little One card. This sweet vintage looking card is made with more Reminisce glitter paper ( good thing I only had one sheet of it- I'd use it for every project! LOL!) I added a MM journal tear out. Then I added an Anna Griffin tear out, with Bobunny rubon swirls on it. I added this vintage baby label, from AMD and this pretty vintage looking ribbon from Bobunny. I added a silk flower, my buttons and sticker letters from Amer. Crafts and MM.

Oooops! This is one of my favorites I have made in a while! The papers are from Dream Street, Reminisce and Bobunny. The greeting block is AtB, and I added a Bobunny button. The snail is a Basic Grey felt sticker. The clouds paper is Reminisce as well. The teal Reminisce paper is actually packaging- I used the background of a sticker sheet, it cut nicely for my scallops and folder tag. I also fringed that Bobunny grass.

Happy Birthday. I almost didn't share this- it seems like such a plain card to me. I only added the bobunny cardstock, an Anna Griffin journal spot, and a bit more bobunny paper along with cream cardstock punched with my eyelet lace Martha punch. I added the MM sticker letters and this pretty glittered K&Co flower.

Make a wish, this card seems a little plain to me as well. I didn't have any red and yellow paper that matched well, it almost seems like Disney has claimed this color combination so much I have a hard time adding to it. I used Bobunny dot cardstock, a Reminisce glittered scallop sticker and letters, I also rolled some cardstock and made these 'candles'. The ribbon is old Bobunny stash.

U R Special. and my hands are getting tired! LOL! Papers- The orange is Reminisce, the plaid is DCWV, and the blue is Bobunny. I used Bobunny ribbon, Reminisce letters, Anna Griffin felt bfly, Reminisce cloud paper, and a craft supply button. Love how this turned out!


Finally- my last card for today. This bright one was hard to figure a greeting, so I went with a nice more generic type. I used Bobunny dot cardstocks, with a MM journal tear out. The glittered fruit chipboard stickers are K&co and I added another MM round sticker. I printed out the greeting and punched it with a circle punch.

Thanks for looking at my cards today!
