Stamp Something - spring!


This week at Stamp Something we'd like to see your 'spring somethings'.  We're sponsored by Simon Says Stamp and the prize is a fab $20 gift certificate for one lucky winner.

Now, I'm not sure how I ended up making this card to be honest!  When I think of spring, I usually think of yellows and greens, that sort of thing.  But I was drawn to this paper, and considering my ailing mojo at the moment, I just went along with it!  I think it's probably a bit too plain as well.  Never mind...

I've used a cute Stampavie stamp that I bought AGES ago, used once then forgot.  It's coloured with promarkers with touches of sakura clear stardust pen (can't see in the pic).  The paper is MME, cardstock is coredinations.  The little tag sentiment is Craftwork Cards, button from my stash.  I've embossed the centre panel with a daisy embossing folder that was free with a magazine... but realised too late that I had it the wrong way so it's debossed instead - oops!  I was going to cut a new piece and do it again, but decided I quite liked it as it was.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
I've been all excited since yesterday evening - hubby finally got sick of my moaning and bought me a new desk.  Hurray!!!  I've been using such a small desk - it doesn't even fit my guillotine on properly, I have to store it on the floor when I'm not using it.  I've had my eye on a big corner desk from Ikea, but we couldn't really afford it.  Then last night hubby spotted the same desk on ebay not too far away from us and he bought it for me :o)  Slight problem though - he went to pick it up this aft and it wouldn't fit in his car!  So we still need to sort that out... hopefully I'll have a lovely new desk and lots of space to work on very soon!  Although that means I'll have to do lots of reorganising in the craft room to fit it in....

Your cards are NEVER plain hunny!! This is a cutie (I'm offering that stamp in my candy) and so prettily coloured. Like you, I think of green and yellow for spring but there are the red tulips, the pink blossom and the purple iris and blue hyacinths, so this is absolutely perfect. Love it. Hugs, Sxxx

Gorgeous card Lisa. I don't think it's too plain at all. That gorgeous DP and lovely image don't need a lot of embellishing. I love the colours. I've got that DP and I hate to use it lol!

What a lovely hubby buying you a nice new desk!

Keep It Sweet and Simple said...

This is so pretty - the DP really matches that cute stamp and it might be simple, but it certainly isn't plain.
Hope you get to try out your new desk soon!

Craftdee said...

This is a rally cute card Lisa, personally I think it is very "springy". Here in W.Australia spring is full of bright wildflowers - mainly in pinks (not for long admittedly, all too soon we get to summer!) Love your new desk, but I bet in no time you'll need more - we do fill the space available to us, we crafters! Dee
