Gingham in Spring

The inspiration for this post came from 2 places, Double D Blog Spot Gingham challenge and the Modsquad One or More Metal Die challenge: I’m not a big fan of gingham but I did have PP from a StampTV kit purchased a few years ago and decided to use it. I also used a rectangle swing card base from Hot of the Press that I’ve had for so long I had forgotten about them. First I decorated the card base with the PP.

Using a GKD stamp and die set called Happy Spring I stamped the various images, coloured them and die cut the ones I wanted. Using dimensionals I added the bunny and the balloon to the back side panel. I added the yellow swing rectangle after stamping the greeting and the branch and popped up the little bird here. The inside rectangle I just stamped and hand coloured a little before adhering it.

    1. Glad you like it Lisa. I bought the card bases ages ago and only found them recently. Now I really have to find ways to use them before I forget again.


  1. Absolutely adorable, Johanna, the colors and mix of patterned paper with the gingham works perfectly together. I love the card design. Happy Spring!

  3. Thanks so much Sharon. I’m glad we are back in touch again. My gingham pp came from a pack that Gina had in one of the kits. I’m bad at using pp and end up keeping some forever.
