Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Spring Fling Blog Hop

Hello everyone!  It's time for Part 2 of the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Spring Fling Blog Hop!!  You should have arrived here from the super talented Ruthie's blog.  If not, then make sure you head back to the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog so that you can start at the beginning.  You don't want to miss a thing!


This is a fun 6x6 "Happy Spring" card.  The black cardstock and the white cardstock for the card base are from Bazzill.  The white, yellow and green cardstock for the flowers are from Die Cuts With A View.  The "Happy Spring" sentiment is from the PKS ~ March 2013 : Kit of the Month.


These super cute flowers are made with the PKS ~ Cottage Cutz : Funny Flowers dies/stamps.  To give the flowers dimension, I snipped all of the petals apart and then curled them a little.  I also added some pop dots underneath the face.  The fun faces are from the PKS ~ Sweet & Silly Face Assortment.  I used a white ~ Sakura Gelly Roll Pen for the eyes and some chalk for cheeks.  I inked the edges of the petals, faces, and leaves with some Chestnut Roan ~ Colorbox Ink.  The stems are made with lollipop sticks which I wrapped with some super fun ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.


The cute little critters are stamped with the PKS ~ Lady Bug Thank You and the PKS ~ small Bee (that was a recent free giveaway).  I colored them in with Copic ~ Sketch Markers.  And I added some Star Dust ~ Stickles to the wings of the bee for some sparkle.  At the bottom of the card, I used some Chestnut Roan ~ ColorBox Ink to make some ground.


Just a little something to make you smile (especially if you still have snow!!!  lol)

Ok, your next stop in the hop is the fabulous Miss Amy.  But in case you get lost along the way, here is the entire Blog Hop lineup:

Cassandra (that's me!)

Make sure you leave your comments along the way, because you know there will be a fun giveaway!!  Woot! Woot!  Have a great day my creative friends!  I will see you all again soon.

**And remember ~ each and every comment this month will be entered into my HAPPY BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY!!!
