Spring Time-Make It Monday

Spring Time? Really? After teasing us with a few wonderful spring days, Mother Nature has been giving us dreary, rainy cold days. But the wild violets have sprung up in the lawn, so I am not completely unhappy with Ms Nature, and those violets were my inspiration for last week's Make It Monday video and challenge to color with Copics on colored cardstock.

Using PTI's Year of Flowers: Violets, I stamped the smaller flower image on Lavendar Moon and the small leaf on Spring Moss, using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink; then I colored with these Copics:

I was hoping the PTI's new gingham background would be wide enough. to cover the front panel of the libary pocket; it might work for a better stamper, but I was not successful, so I used a Cornish Heritage Farms gingham stamp for the. However, I did find a use for PTI's background. Prepare yourselves for more gingham strips on my cards? :)

Stamps: Year of Flowers:Violets, Background Basics: Gingham, Take Three: Spring, Library Card (PTI); Notary(Prima Marketing); Fine Gingham Backgrounder(Cornish Heritage Farms)
Ink: Memento--Rich Cocoa, London Fog,Lulu Lavendar (Tsukineko)
Paper: Vintage Cream, Lemon Tart, Lavendar Moon, Spring Moss (PTI)
Other: Library Pocket die, Rustic Cream Button Twine, Linen Impression Plate (PTI); Die-namics Faux Crochet Border (My Favorite Things); Tags Trio(Spellbinders); Copics


  1. Oh, Cammie, this is just GORGEOUS! Your coloring is perfection! The warmth of SPRING has slipped away for us too. It has been dreary and cold with even a few snowflakes yesterday. I'm sure it will be back and in the meantime I got to wake up to your beautiful card!

  2. Very pretty. Sorry to hear the new gingham stamp didn't work the way you wanted it too glad you had a backup though. The gingham goes great with the violet. Hope your spring weather comes back soon. It is cold her today too.

  3. Such a pretty, Springy card! I could use some Spring right about now ;)

  4. What a neat idea for the focal point!

  5. Beautiful card! Love the violet and your coloring of it.

  6. Ha, ha!! Gingham lovers of the world unite! (It's about to break loose all over my blog too :0) I love the springy colours of this one and the way you've used the library pocket and the punched edge! Lots of details and soooooo pretty!


I truly appreciate your comments. Thanks for taking the time to leave one.
