Why not join in with us and make a card/project for the special someone in your life, but don't forget your project MUST include a Sugar Nellie stamp or digi stamp - both are available from Funkykits. If you're not sure if your stamp IS a Sugar Nellie stamp either sent me a message with it's name/picture or visit the Sugar Bowl website and send an email to Sugar Mama using the link there.
BIG NEWS: Funkykits now has a new Etsy shop where you can buy Sugar Nellie digi stamps - why not check them out.
Here's my little 'spring' card for you:
Here's What I Did
I used a 6 x 6 white card base and matted some patterned paper onto it - it's a pretty lilac colour but it looks a little washed out in my photo :( I stamped my little gardening girl onto Neenah CS and again onto copier paper. From the copier paper I cut out the girl with the flowers closest to her, and cut out the butterfly and a small hill shape - all to create a mask. Using non-permanent tape I covered the girl, flowers and butterfly up and covered the area where I wanted my grassy area. Using distressing ink and my handmade cloud template I created some cloud shapes. The rest of the image was always coloured with copics and Prisma Pencils. the grass was created using just green pen dots.
The arch window aperture was die cut and embossed and I coloured the daisy centres with a copic pen. To finish off I added some punched out butterflies and sprinkling of glitter.
Here's everything I used:
