Happy Spring Hippity Hop

Happy Monday!!


It's time for another H{ippity} Hop! 


To start at the beginning of the hop, please visit the 
for a complete list of today's participants!! 




I have two cards to share with you today that were inspired by two  different challenges.  


The first challenge is this week's {ippity} challenge IHHC17.  Maria has given us the theme of Easter or Spring to use on our cards.  

The second challenge is for this week's CAS challenge CAS60 on SCS which is to follow the sketch for the amazing card made by fellow DT member Carly that you can see HERE.



I felt like my first card wasn't as Clean And Simple as it should be!   I love the way it turned out, but think it has just a bit too much detail for true CAS fashion...


I used stamps from {ippity}'s Sweet Thoughts of Spring and stamped the floral images three times and then colored them in with Copic markers.  Then I cut out them out and placed one in each of the three squares.  I also used the Spring text collage stamp to add to the background at the bottom.  (You have to look closely to see it!)




I made the sentiment panel using a Nestie that I stamped Happy Spring onto and adorned it with dots I made by hand and a butterfly sticker that came with the pack of Kioshi paper.  The purple border that was punched with a MS punch and the yellow ribbon finished off the card!!


So my second version is much more Clean and Simple!!  And it still used the same stamps from the Sweet Thoughts of Spring set and the same pack of paper too!




For this card I had no images, just the sentiment, collage and scalloped border stamp.  I stamped the sentiment stamp once into each of the three squares.  I stamped the collage stamp onto the flower and used the spring border punch for the bottom. 




I think it is cute, but I might just add an image before I send it off to someone!!  I think the little chickie would be cute on this don't you??
