Spring Has Sprung Along with Some New Stamps

Afternoon lovely bloggers. I can't believe I'm typing this with the windows open, the birds singing and sunshine pouring in. What a difference a week can make. I've had three days out in the garden and loved every minute. I hope you are enjoying the spring sunshine too. All that wind and rain seems a very long time ago now thank goodness.

I've just popped by to share a sneaky peek of the latest release of stamps from Sheena. She will be sharing them on Create and Craft this Saturday at 3pm. I know that will make those of you that work very happy!!

This set are butterflies and flowers and they are gorgeous. I couldn't stop playing with them and I know the rest of the team feel the same so I hope you like them.

I made the background for this card by dribbling PVA glue over some watercolour card, something I saw in this month's Craft Stamper magazine, and then, when it was dry painted over with H20's and over stamped with a blossom from the new set. A leaf was silver embossed around the edge and painted in with more of the purple H20. The main flowers were painted with more H20's and cut out. Can you tell I'm totally in love with H20's!!!

If you want to see what the rest of the Inkoids have created, you can find the link HERE.

I'll be back tomorrow for WOYWW and hopefully share another of my makes with you so enjoy your evening and Happy Crafting.

Gosh Lisa. What a beautiful card. Love that background you have created. I always associate you with H2Os and it was here that I first saw them being used to great effect. I still have not tried them!
Thanks for being nice and sharing the Yellow Ball. We had a nice few hours this afternoon.

Hi Lisa, what a pretty card. Haven't bought Craft Stamper for ages, perhaps I will have to go and buy it and have a go at that! We have also had some nice weather, bit of a cool wind, but sunny. Have done some tidying up in the garden. Jill x

This is gorgeous Lisa. I love that background. Really beautiful.
I've enjoyed having the dorrs and windows open too. Won't be long before the trees over the back of my tiny garden's fence come into blossom and leaf. Love the bare trees mostly but it's great to enjoy the greenery in the summer months.
