Spring Card - Kre8tors Blog Hop

Welcome to Kre8tors Blog Hop April 2020 - Spring Theme!

I am Ann Krucek, coming to you from Ohio where we have been hunkered down for a month now.
I am so thankful that I have my Stampin' Up! family to help us through these crazy times!

Wanting to make something bright and cheerful lead me to the cute little flowers in the Grandma's House Set for my Spring Card for this Blog Hop.

Using the masking technique, I stamped out a piece of Whisper White with rows and rows of the flowers and colored them with my Stampin' Blends.  Then I used those same blends and a ruler and made my own striped paper on Whisper White Cardstock.

This gate fold card ties with the fun, bright Daffodil Yellow Ruched Ribbon.
The Highland Heather piece is from the Stiched So Sweetly Dies.
 The Label Me Lovely Punch was used for the Whisper White shape stamped with the flowers.

and I lined the inside sides of the card with some bright yellow gingham check paper.
I have used this sentiment a lot lately - it just seems appropriate for the times! It is from the Positive Thoughts stamp set.

This card is sure to brighten someone's day!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
