A challenge win & Spring Blooms - Part 1

Well, I am truly amazed & chuffed to bits. My Script inspired card, which you can see in the previous blog post here was chosen as the winner of the Just Us Girls colour challenge last week!! So I'm now proudly sporting the Chic of the Week badge on the side of my blog :)

I've got a bit carried away with the Spring Bloom stamps from Clearly Besotted & have made a few more cards with them.
Those of you who have had the pleasure of receiving some Clearly Besotted stamps in the post will know how beautifully Stephanie packages them. Like many crafters, I don't like throwing things away so I used the tissue paper the stamps were wrapped in to make this tulip bouquet for my Mum's birthday card last week.

I used the tulip stamps & matching die again to make this card, which I'm going to enter in the Addicted to CAS challenge this week where the theme is 'Spring' ...

And here's the last of the Mother's Day cards ...

Finally, I used the same design from the card on the previous post, just changing the orientation, colours & sentiment to make a birthday card for my friend ...

Supplies used:
Stamps: Spring Blooms - Clearly Besotted, Mum typography - Papermania, Script - Hero Arts
Dies: Spring Blooms - Clearly Besotted, Large Scallop Edgelits - Stampin' Up
Inks: Promarkers, Gumball Green/Dafodill Delight/Primrose Petals/Raspberry Ripple - Stampin' Up
Other: Baker's Divine Twine - Ribbon Girls, Oval punch - Stampin' Up, Pretty in Pink dotted DSP - SU

Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog, I really appreciate your lovely comments. As you can see by the name of this post, I haven't finished with these Spring Blooms stamps & dies yet, so pop back soon for Part 2 :)

Take care x
