Is it Spring yet?

No not quite, unfortunately, but it does feel like it over on the new Quirky Crafts Challenge, which this week is all about In the Spring Garden and must include a stamped or digi image of something you would find in the garden (flowers, bees, butterflies, insects, pots, any garden themed stamp or digi), and include the colours pink and green, I was lucky enough to be asked back as a Guest DT, so I got to play with some lovely images and papers provided by this weeks sponsor Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps.

I chose to use the Butterfly Love image and the Dahlia image, along with some of the papers from the wonderfully pink digi Paper Pack from Stitchy called Love Blooms which is the January Collab offer that comes free with any purchase from Stitchy over $10 in value. Perfect for Valentines Day cards!

Here's my card:
I firstly layered the Butterfly Love the digi onto one of the papers from the digi pack, and then copied it to retain the same size and printed it on a white background, this meant I coud do a bit of colouring with my promarkers, but also use some of the background paper to form her dress. The Dahlia digi I flipped and coloured, then cut out. Mounted the panel onto another of the digi papers, and added a bit of spotty ribbon and ricrac, with some pearls and gems in the corners.


  1. Claire, this card is too beautiful! Love how you printed parts of the digi's onto the pattern paper...very clever!
