Some Spring Flowers

Hello … bonjour!  First today, I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who left such lovely comments following my final Time Out Design Team cards/post … they were soooo appreciated … you warmed my heart and had me smiling all over my face … merci mille fois 🙂 .  In answer to a question that came up a few times … yes, I’ll definitely still be making cards … and will still be around in blogland … just not at Time Out (except as a player that is!).  So, onto a couple of cards (which is why you’re here!) … they both feature sunny spring flowers … and will be going into the galleries of various fun challenges that are going on at the moment.  Here’s the first …

My second card is more layered … though it is still clean …

All the images and the sentiment here are from Papertrey (One Big Happy and Birthday Cheer).  The Happy Birthday was heat embossed in platinum onto a panel of white card … and popped up onto the base.  The stamped and die cut flowers and leaves were then arranged above and below the edges of the panel, some flat to the base, others popped up on different layers of foam tape.  This card is going to be playing along at …

    I wrote a long comment and it wouldn’t let me post it. If this goes through I’ll try again.

    So I wanted to say how soft and pretty the first card is, Anita, and what a beautiful color combination and perfect arrangement on the second card. Both bring hope of Spring.

    Oodles of spring in your post Anita! I like the simplicity of your first one, so pretty. But those layered die cut blooms are amazing!

    Wish I had a birthday coming up Anita as both of your cards are absolutely beautiful! Love the CAS look of your one layer card with the lovely soft but bright Spring colors, and your 2nd card with the 2 borders of fresh sunny flowers is just as delightful as the 1st card! You definitely brought a smile to my face this morning! Take care my friend!! :0)

    Phew! What a relief to know that we’ll be seeing you around cyberspace. What would I do without your inspiration and talent to behold? Like both of these floral cards. The clean lines of the first add so much to those sweet, colorful images…just lovely. And the second, is a WOW! that, though clean, brings joy to my heart. It’s so festive and happy, perfect for a birthday

    Two beautiful cards with all those lovely spring flowers. Thanks for sharing with us at Seize the Birthday.

    Deux magnifiques cartes qui mettent du baume au coeur avec ces jolies couleurs. La deuxième avec des couleurs bien chaudes et qui sentent bon l’été mais je dois dire que tu as volé mon coeur avec la première. Un mariage de couleurs printanières tellement jolies ! Et toujours ce style très épuré que j’aime chez toi. Magnifiques ! J’espère que tout va bien et que vous êtes en sécurité chez vous. Mille bises. Et merci de partager et de jouer avec ATSM.

    Two really beautiful cards, Anita! I love how you showcased the large pink bloom on your one layer card and how you arranged your die cut flowers on your 2nd card! Definitely fit for spring with all those pretty pastel colors, too! Thanks for making me smile…it’s always fun to visit your blog!

  20. Lisa Kind

    Let me first say that you will be so missed over at Time Out. Your cards added a stylish flair to the design team. Your first card is just so pretty! I love the soft colors. And the second one is amazing! I love the colors and the design is just so lovely! Thanks for playing with Just Us Girls and I’ll see you in blogland!

    Two beautiful spring cards Anita. Love the layered stamping of your multi-coloured bouquet. So pretty and dainty. Your second card is a wonderful design with your rows of overlapping flowers. So creative and beautiful. You will be missed at Time Out, but it’s always good to make changes once in a while. xx

  24. Mac Mable

    The stamping and colours on your first card look wonderful and so very pretty….loving the textured cardstock too. Beautiful and feminine second card with gorgeous layering. Both cards are so happy and so very pretty Anita x.

  25. Cornelia (fun stamping)

    Layering two ways – genius as always ! The forst one is so YOU! I think I could pick it out in a line-up! Looks like a lot of work went into the second card, but totally worth it!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate it!
