I managed to put in to acrylic and make something with one of my newer Papertrey sets - A Year of Flowers: Daffodils.
I stamped the lemon tart and summer sunrise bitty dots paper in spring moss ink - it doesn't show too well in my photo - before cutting out and popping up on foam dots. I love the spring moss patterned paper but it is nearly all gone - I seem to have made it last for ages but unfortunately not forever!
Do pop over to the blog and see all the lovely other entries - you won't be disappointed!
Thank you for stopping by my little corner of blogland this evening.
I wasn't going to join in this month as I had no tissue paper - I can distinctly remember wrapping a gift in my last delivery of tissue with my stamp order - but then I needed a bit of retail therapy yesterday to cheer myself after a tough week at work so I went to my favourite shop in Beaconsfield and bought a lovely pink linen shirt. Guess what they wrapped it in.........
In fact the shirt is a slightly paler colour than Raspberry Fizz so I went with that for my quickie card.
I cut loads of layers of the tissue with my Dahlia nestability in different sizes and found this pretty pink brad in my stash.
The stamps are all from Giga Guidelines and inked up with Raspberry Fizz and Dark Chocolate on to Craft cardstock. I finished it off with some dark chocolate ribbon.
I took my layout from another of the Go-To sketches - just love that book!
Have a great evening - it's getting a bit late here so I will spend the rest of the evening hopping around the great inspiration of the hop!

I used Papertrey's spring moss bitty squares and scarlet jewel in bloom dp along with scarlet jewel card and ribbon. The buttons are all from the scarlet jewel jar but one looks very light in this photo! I'm thinking I would like a new camera but that will have to wait a while!
The sentiment is from the Delightful Dahlia set and the ink that worked best on the linen was SU's Old Olive craft ink. All the other colours just faded into the linen! I adhered the linen with a tiny touch of scorpal tape in each corner.
It's been such a beautiful day here, Spring has finally arrived - a fitting end to my week off. Back to work tomorrow - sigh....

So in the order were Delightful Dahlia and matching dies and Distressed Stripes. I had lots of fun playing with colours over the weekend and this is what I came up with....
Firstly a mixture of aqua mist, sprin moss and spring rain. The flower was coloured with the aqua mist Copic trio and I cut this flower out rather than die cut it. The sentiment on this card and the next is from Signature Greetings.
Secondly is a combo of lavender moon, spring moss and plum pudding, with the die cut flower coloured in lavender colours and I added some lavender moon buttons.
Before I leave you I thought I would show you how I have stored my Dahlia dies - on a square of sticky backed lightly magnatised sheet - the same way I store my Nestabilities. They are so slim that I can still close the jewel case and have them right at hand when I need them - easy peasy!
I hope you have had a lovely Easter break - many thanks as always for stopping by.

The tree stamp - from Through the Trees was double stamped in spring moss and advocado inks, and the backing paper is from the bitty squares collection overstamped with one of the little stamps from Turning a New Leaf.
This went off to my friend Cathy for her birthday.
All supplies are from papertrey ink (surprise, surprise!).

I used Papertrey Lemon Tart and Summer Sunrise papers and ribbon and my little used Dahlia nesties. The daffs are coloured with Copic markers and I added a bookplate from SU.
Here's a better look at the flower itself.
Whilst I had all the supplies out I made a card too - I used the lemon combo again with some spring moss bitty paper and some tile red card from SU.
The challenge this fortnight over at A Passion for Papertrey is Easter/Spring. Do pop on over and see what the other girls have made.
Have a lovely Easter and thanks for stopping by!
