Spring Card Set

WARNING!!!
This is going to be a very picture heavy post!!

First off, I want to thank everyone for
wishing my Sweet Pea a Happy Birthday!!
Here is a funny picture of her not
looking too happy to share her birthday
cake with her sister Jasmine!!
So, on to my cards.  I recently purchased a great
little card kit from Archiver's Annex.
It came with the Tim Holtz Easter Blueprint
stamps that I have seen elsewhere for $20.00
for the stamps alone.  The card kit was $20.00
and it included the stamps, some cardstock,
tags, a bottle of Stickles, a 6x6 MME paper
pack and a roll of Jute string!!
What a great deal!!  Here is the set of cards I made.
In all these pictures is is hard to see the card base,
but I cut them all at 4x4 from the brown cardstock
that was included in the kit.  The pattern papers
are from the paper pack included as well as
my scrap box.  I used a variety of products on
all the cards, I will list them at the bottom.
 On this card I used Twine &
Turquoise and Lime Green Stickles
 
  On this card I used the Jute String, 
Want 2 Scrap Bling &
Magenta and Cherry Ice Stickles


For this card I used Glitter Tulle, Want 2 Scrap
Bling and Lagoon Stickles

These next two cards are the first ones I made
and they do not include and dry embossing.
I used Webster's Pages Trim, Recollections
Bling and Yellow Stickles on this one.
I loved the butterfly so much, I used it twice!!
This card has sheer ribbon, Recollentions Bling
and Lime Green Stickles

Materials:
Tim Holtz Easter Blueprint Stamps
Various Spellbinders Dies
Various colors of
Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Various Sizzix and
Cuttlebug Embossing Folders

All cards but one, have a tag cut with My Craft Spot's
Tiny Tag Dies and are stamped with sentiments
from the Tiny Tags 2 stamp set.
The tags were embossed with Zing
clear embossing powder.

I am entering these in the following challenges:

aawww...Happy Birthday to your little one! Your cards look fabulous -those stamps are amazing and I love the glitter! I have been meaning to answer the question you left on my blog a few days ago. I LOVE my Cameo. I have my Cricut sitting on a shelf and haven't used it in months. I think I may end up selling it as it is just taking up space these days. The Cameo cuts like butter and I love how easy it has been to use. Not to be an "enabler" (yea, right), I think you would love the Cameo!!

Firstly, Sweet Pea had every right to be a little upset at sharing what looks to be one amazing birthday cake! LOL! She looks to have enjoyed it anyways!
Your cards are absolutely gorgeous! I love all the different trims and pearls on each one. The tags are perfect on them and the glittery accents are so wonderful! Thanks for playing at My Craft Spot!
