Spring is springing... yay, yay, yay!

The idea for this card I got from Ted who had really great tutorials on his blog quite often. He layered vellum over patterned paper, and I had to try it, because some of this June Bug Paper is so bold, yet I really love it. See the difference??? Hopefully, since I typed over the unaltered paper! I used this card to go with the photo inspiration challenge at the Order of the Opus Gluei this week!
This card is for blinged out leprechaun at Stamp it Crazy. I found this angry little Irishman and couldn't help but use him for a group of fun little 4x4 cards!


  1. Kristen, I love that card... the soft flowers are so wonderful with the silhouettes of the butterflies! :) Very nice work!

  4. WOW!! So Spring-filled and fun!! I love it!! Love the colors and everything about your creations hun!! TFS! HUGS

  5. Love the card, you're right that using the vellum like this softens the look of a brightly colored paper. Just beautiful.

    Your leprechauns made me giggle, he does appear PO'ed doesn't he? I suppose someone stole his Lucky Charms! Great use of the Lime Rickey paper too!

  6. As always, Kristen, your work is terrific!
