I've used stamps from 2 of the new sets as well as some images from older sets so I'll identify where they come from as we go along!Don't you just LOVE the detail on this beautiful basket? I colored it with 3 different shades of brown copics so you could see the intricate design on it! This new set called Spring Baskets comes with several different 'things' you can put in your basket - I used the eggs today (which I paper pieced) since it went along with the sentiment I chose - 'Faith is putting all your eggs in God's basket' - isn't that a wonderful thought?!
The lovely Celtic Cross is from an older set called Celtic Heritage. I stamped it in brown and then colored the pattern in with a lighter brown Copic. I stitched around the edges of my card with my Janome sewing machine. I used Taylor's sketch for my design.
On the inside of my card I used a wonderful circle stamp from one of the new sets called Vintage Circles Small. The sentiment is from the new Spring Baskets set. I made the lacey panel using a Martha Stewart punch I just got.

For my second card I took one of the egg stamps from Spring Baskets and used it as a balloon instead! As soon as I saw it I thought the lines on it looked very similar to a hot air balloon - and that made me think Birthday Card! LOL! (yes, weird brain - I know!)
This Basic Grey designer paper (Cupcake) is so fun for party cards! I paper pieced the 'balloons' popping them up on foam dimensionals and outlined the strings and balloons with a very light blue copic (BG10) The sentiment is from an older set Celtic Heritage. I think this makes a great masculine card, don't you?!? Fun but not too accessorized!!!
On the inside of this card - I adhered a 1" panel of designer paper to the top and bottom - stamping this verse from the older set Irish Blessings in the middle - leaving some room beneath for my salutation!
