Happy Spring!

Ok, so I have a confession.  I have a bit of a weakness for fun alphabet sets.  I love them!  You can create your own custom greetings and sentiments and stamp people's names.  This set from Studio G is so cute and so simple.  I love the rounded shape and the fact that they are easy to use.
The other day, my cousin was over and I made a card for her to give her mom for Easter.  I thought this was the perfect time to use my new beloved alpha set.  Here is the card:

I used a Hero Arts background stamp of Cling Dots in a sparkly pink ink (Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid) and then stamped with the small alpha Studio G Ditto stamps  - so cute!  I made this flower with tissue paper and Papertrey's Delightful Doilies smallest die.  I layered them together and stuck it on the card with a glue dot.  Then I decided it still needed something so found this (seldom used) Stampendous bee stamp that I used and then coloured with an aqua pen and some Distress Ink.  Voilà!

Paper: Staples 110lb white cardstock, yellow tissue paper
Ink: Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid, Versafine Onyx Black, Distress Ink spiced marmalade
Stamps: Studio G Ditto small alpha, Hero Arts Cling Dots, Stampendous Buzzin' By
Tools/Misc: Delightful Doilies small die, Zots glue dots, aqua brush pen, corner rounder punch
