Love in Springtime


We want to see monochrome projects this week at Cupcake Craft Challenges. Stamp Fairy kindly offered images and isn't Mimi so cute. Stamp Fairy is also offering a lucky winner a $10 Gift Voucher.
 I made good use of some scraps, the flower is made with a heart punch, a die cut circle and lovely pearl beads. The word k√§rlek is love in Swedish.

I would like to enter:
Simply Create Too: Use Your Stash (scraps)

I used:
Scraps and pages from a dictionary
Panduro heart punch, QK circle and corner dies
Stickles and glossy accents
Sewing machine

Have a great week!

Feeling Thankful

I'm feeling thankful that Mother Nature is waking up after a very long winter, we're having a lovely sunshine, the snow has melted and the grass is slowly turning green. Now I'm waiting for the trees and flowers to spring into life too. And to make good use of my Ballerinas! No more wool socks here please!

I've cased Chrissie's lovely card at the Less Is More Challenge. I would also like to join CASology with the word thanks! And: 4 Crafty Chicks with Trees.

I used:
Stampscape image
Memento Bamboo Leaves ink
Cuttlebug die

I cut out the word six times from card and layered them with glue, the topmost was stamped with the image and then positioned. I guess chipboard had been easier, but the scrap heap is a bit smaller.

Have a great day!

Love
Maarit
