When you need to make a quick card with lots of presence, reach for Taylored Expressions' fun Bubble Greetings and Bubble Greetings Spring. The large open letters are perfect for coloring, paper piecing, doodling or stamping on a colorful background. To further enhance the Bubble Greetings, stamp them on one of TE's Boxed in Basics cards which are unique 4" x 5 1/4" panels printed on 100lb cardstock. Each package includes 2 cards of 6 designs.
For my first four cards I tried my hand at doodling in the letters then colored them with Copic makers.

My next set of cards were created with the Spring Bubble Greetings and the Boxed in Basics. For this first card I paper pieced the letters and hung the bunny border across the top (thanks Mary for the suggestion!) The bunnies' little butts are felt!Hoppy Easter Pieced – Taylored Expressions stamp set Bubble Greetings Spring; Boxed In Basics Cards; TE die Spring Borders
For this next card I created the background on the Boxed in Basics card with Distress inks and the blending tool. I stamped the letters, colored them with Copic markers then embellished the card with flowers.

I love this next card with its soft pastel colors. After I colored the letters and the border, I framed the greeting with a spring scene then enhanced the border with Nuvo clear drops.

My favorite card? A pretty yellow shaker! I stamped the very pretty Petite Petals background in Versamark on yellow cardstock and heat embossed it in clear. I die cut the oval opening and die cut a piece of fun foam to create the "well" for the sequin filler. Next I stamped the Hello Spring Bubble Greeting on acetate with Versamark ink and heat embossed it in white. Here are two important tips for stamping and embossing on acetate. First, be sure to treat the acetate surface with an anti-static powder tool (we sell the EK Success tool and it's great!). And second, be sure to hold the heat tool well above the surface (about 10" to 12") so the heat does not buckle the acetate.Hello Spring Shaker – Taylored Expressions stamp set Bubble Greetings Spring; TE die Stitched Ovals; TE stamp Petite Petals Background; design inspired by Noriko Fairchild
