Spring has Sprung?! - Kim #23 of 40

I am wondering who is seeing Spring out there, because it's not me.

Calgary is still lightly snowing.

We are still trying the break the shackles of winter here, but hope and crafting makes it feel like spring could come.

So with the possibility of Spring on the horizon, we want (maybe even need) to see a warm up featuring flowers!

Craft it, Picture it and Link it. #ECAPRIL2018


First up is Me! 

I had some ideas and decided I just needed to break with the work flow (79 packages packed and shipped in 4 days with 73 of those in the last 2 days) and craft for me.

So I grabbed the Gladiolas, Freshly Picked and Large Oak stamps. I stamped them using Stazon and did a light bit of colouring with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens. 

You can't see the shimmer in the photo but it held and gave a bit of accent when I did the next part.

I Grabbed the Vintage Beeswax and layered over a couple of times using my Ranger Emboss It Dabber and heat tool and I loved how bold and rich the images became.


I am not sure where I will go with these pieces but I loved getting this result.

Stay tuned, it's creative month so I will blog up a bunch of photos for the cards I make at the end of April. I love the Card weekend. Plus we are doing a couple of gigs so we have lots of prep coming after this week, because I will be finished with the package catch up.

  1. The Vintage Beeswax makes such a difference to the images, especially the gorgeous Gladiolas! I am afraid that the Winter has not quite disappeared over here either as yet, let's hope April brings us some lovely Spring weather.
