Greenhouse Crocus

Hi guys!

I've got a couple of cards to share today. Just a quick post using a pretty stamp set from Technique Tuesday.

They have a Greenhouse Society series of stamps that are wonderful and so fun to color! I love coloring flowers so these are right up my ally!

For the two cards today, I used their Crocus set.


I colored the Crocus with Copics, then paired it with a fun, colorful background, using the Gingham Cling stamp from Simon Says Stamp.



For this card, I also used my Copics and added a fun, grassy background, inspired by my amazingly talented friend, Kelly Latevola. If you don't follow her blog, you should! She does awesome things with Copics! And of course I had to add some Wink of Stella to the flowers because everything should have shimmer! :) The sentiment is one of my faves from WPlus9.

We're still waiting for spring to show up here in Minnesota. Oh, we've had some really nice, warmer days but winter is fighting hard with spring and seems to be winning at the moment. Come on spring - I'm rooting for you!!!

Thanks for the visit. I hope you all have a wonderful week and find some time to get crafty! ♥

The crocus is delightful for spring, Barb! Must go put that one on my wishlist! And the gingham background is wonderful, but then again, so is your grassy one!

Two beautiful cards -- the first reminds me of the crocus that are the first to pop up in our yard, often while snow is still on the ground! I love both of your cards!!!

I recently traveled to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Barb ... snow again there, as well! Our world is looking pretty brown, and cold right now... yes, indeed: come on Spring!!!
Until then, I'm well warmed by your gorgeous Crocus - I get those Garden Society stamp sets, too - you do them way more justice than I!

Hi Barb, it's been such a long time since I visited. For some reason life it seeming to go faster than what I can keep up with, if that makes sense. I love your colouring, you colour like a real expert. These floral cards are wonderful.
So you await Spring whilst here in South Africa we can feel that Winter is on it's way, the mornings and evenings are much cooler, but the days are still beautiful. We feel blessed whenever any rain falls as we have a major shortage, but slowly drop by drop we are getting some relief.
Off to look at everything I have missed on your blog. Take care. Hugs, Brenda xx

Your Copic coloring is amazing, Barb! I love how you added the Gingham background on the first card, and how you created your grassy border on the 2nd card! Loving all the sparkle, too!
