Spring Swing & Whoo loves you?

Hello all! Here are two cards that I made using stamps from PaperWorks Co.


I am in charge of the Kit of the Month Wednesday over at the PWCO blog this month and this is the card that I made for this week's post. 


The image that I used is Spring Swing from the A day in the life of Abigail C collection. She definitely looks like she is having a great time! =) All the colored cardstock, ribbon, button and patterned paper are from PWCO's April PaperCard Kit.


I stamped the Spring Swing image on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, it's then colored with Copic markers. The colored image is then cut out using a Classic Ovals Small die and matted with a piece of matching pink cardstock cut using a Classic Scalloped Ovals Small die. The sentient is from this set by Hero Arts.


I sent this card to a friend that got married a few days ago.


Don't you just love these adorable owls? This stamp is called Whoo loves you? from PWCO's Valentine release illustrated by Rachelle Anne Miller, but I used it for a wedding card.


This card is also a reject from Paper Crafts sketch call a while ago. I based this card on Sketch 79. The only thing that I changed was that I mirrored the sketch to fit my image.


The image is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock then cut out using a Classic Rectangles Large die. The patterned paper is from the yummy Hopscotch collection by BasicGrey and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

That's all for today. I have more rejects to share (with tears...), so stay tuned! =)



Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!
