Spring Leap

Hello all! Have you checked out the new releases over at the Whiff of Joy Stamps? The Love Bug collection is a beautiful spring collection illustrated by Elizabeth Bell and the Snowwhite and the 6 Gnomes illustrated by Norma Fickel are just too cute! I have a card made using the delightful Spring Leap to share with you today.


Didn't I say that she is delightful? I think she makes the world smile with her! =)


I stamped and masked her off before I stamped the Spring Meadow behind her. I then used the Labels 17 die and the out of the frame technique to cut the image. There were some daisies in her basket, but I wasn't going to fuzzy cut them and hope that the patterned paper makes up for them. =)


The lovely patterned paper is from the Stella and Rose Hazel collection by My Mind's Eye. I love all of the Stella and Rose collections that they came out with! The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

That's all for today. Hope you have fabulous day! =)



Thanks for stopping by!

Just gorgeous Alice! You make the most amazing cards! This one is so beautifully colored and perfectly embellished! :)

P/s: Can I check what paper you use for stamping? Mine tends to bleed when I use my Copics.
