New Stamps from Shady Tree Studio!

Shady Tree Studio has some new stamps out this Friday! You are going to love these sets, especially if you like to color. The set I will be working with is called Backyard Spring. Its probably my most favorite since Come To Me Autumn. I really like the stamps on this set. I have two cards to share with you today. I will have more peeks tomorrow and then one more peek on Friday. Backyard Spring is packed full of springy goodness and the best thing about it is that its not "holiday" orientated. It does have some cute Easter stuff but mostly its just lots of multipurpose springy goodness. You will get lots of use out of this.My first card is a "holiday card". I used the cute little bunny. I stamped him three times. I colored him with copics and then stickled his tail. I stamped the Happy Easter sentiment below. I added some rhinestones and then hand drew a brown frame. The whole thing is matted on kraft cardstock. A full supply list is below.
My second card begins with another craft base. I stamped the large flower stamp three times in dark chocolate ink. Honestly I was loving that look all by its self. In fact I have another card that just uses that image with the craft. I'll be showing that in a few days. Next I stamped this adorable bird on cream cardstock. I colored him with my copics. A little hint, when using a softer paper like the cream for coloring, leave your markers some room to bleed. They spread much more on this type of paper. I cut him out with an oval nestie and then matted him on a brown scalloped nestie. I finished off the card with a sentiment from Waltzingmouse, Spring Baskets. I am using a WMS sentiment here because my early set of Backyard Spring had some damaged sentiments. Nancy is a stickler for quality so she made sure that all the real sets were fixed. My new set is on its way. As soon as I get it I will stamp some cards using her beautiful sentiments, she has some very nice ones in the set. In the meantime my WMS makes a nice stand in. Honestly, I love mixing sets- dont you?

Well thats it for me. Be sure to check out the other ladies on the DT:

Oh my, Michele -- that bunny card just made me smile!! LOVE it!!!

And the flowers in the background for the robin card was brilliant. I agree, there's something about a line drawing on its own that's charming. Lovely!
