Spring Cards with Color

Hello fellow papercrafters.  I hope your day is going well and you are enjoying the warmer spring days we are having.  The new Taylored Expressions stamp and matching die "Rainboot Bouquet" is perfect for spring.  This first card is set against a background embossed with TE's embossing folder Dotted Lattice.  I paper pieced the boots by stamping on some polka dot paper and cutting out parts of the rainboots then gluing these pieces on to the die cut rainboots.Rainboot-Hello-SpringRainboot Hello Spring – Taylored Expressions stamp set Rainboot Bouquet; TE dies Rainboot Bouquet, Script Hello and Pocket & Pages April; Taylored Expressions embossing folder Dotted Lattice; design inspired by Jean Manis

I paper pieced again on this card (more polka dots!)  I created the background with TE's Prairie embossing folder and sponged in clouds using a template cut with TE's Cloud Border die.  The prairie grass is sponged with a light green ink.Rainboot-Hello-SpringRainboot Thank You – Taylored Expressions stamp set Rainboot Bouquet; TE dies Rainboot Bouquet and Build A Scene Rolling Clouds; Taylored Expressions embossing folder Prairie; design inspired by Kerri Michaud

Love the bright aqua and fuschia on this card.  I sponged light yellow over the background; added flowers with one of the Skinny Mini Spring Borders; and grounded the card with another of the Spring Borders.

Same stamp and die but a totally different look.  I embossed the vellum background with TE's Walking on Sunshine embossing folder then colored it on the back with Copic markers.  I mounted the vellum background over decorative paper (clouds) and added the pretty purple boots.Rainboot-Hello-SpringRainboot Sending Sunshine – Taylored Expressions stamp set Rainboot Bouquet; TE die Rainboot Bouquet; Taylored Expressions embossing folder Walking on Sunshine; design inspired by Keia Shipp-Smith

Taylored Expressionshas some beautiful background stamps and their new Blooming Background is a great example.  It is fun to color and can be used for any occassion. I colored the first two cards with Copic markes and the third card with Zig Clean Color makers.  So pretty!
