I have some cards using
Inspired by the Front Porch – Spring to show you tonight. I have a lot of pictures, so settle in and enjoy :)

First up, a sweet pink number with the dogwood branch image. I stamped it on Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers.

The sentiment was stamped with Black Licorice ink

…as was the sentiment on the inside, from a previously released set, Inspired by Spring. I love how so many MFT sets work so well together.

Next, I used the front porch scene. Ahhhh, looks so Inviting and hopefully soon I can be sitting on MY front porch :) I chose not to color this image for this card.

I stamped it with
Black Licorice ink and cut it out with a Die-namics Circle STAX die, then matted it with another size, finally adding a Die-namics Open Scallop Doily for the bottom mat. The sentiment was stamped on a Die-namics Notched Tag die cut and tucked up under a Bubblegum button.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from this set.

For this card, I used the potted tulips multiple times. I stamped the center one, then covered it with masking tape. Then I stamped the ones on either side and colored them all with Copic markers.

Here’s a close up of the stamped and colored images.

I decided to keep the rest of the card pretty simple by wrapping around some
hemp cord and tying on a Gumdrop Green button after stamping the sentiment.

Since Spring is a time for new beginnings, I used a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About New Beginnings on the inside.

My last card also uses the tulips. I made my base card out of Copic friendly paper then trimmed a piece of
Sweet Tooth card stock for the top layer. I cut out a Die-namics Circle STAX opening and temporarily attached it to the base. Then carefully stamped the tulips onto the base card, removed the top layer and colored the image.

Next I stamped the sentiment on the top layer, popped it up on the base with foam, and added some black gems.

Here’s a close up of the tulips.

For the inside of this card I chose another sentiment from Inspired by Spring.
