Spring Inspirations from Memory Box

After weeks of wrapping up things, I finally got around to making a couple of Spring Cards. This first card was made using the new Dotty Tree from the Memory Box Easter Release. The base card was made from Memory Box brown paper. The image was stamped on white Memory Box textured soiree paper and was matted using paper from the 6 x 6 Frond paper. I stamped the image in Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate and colored the image with Copics. The light tinted blue background was created by airbrushing it with Copics. The airbrushing allows you to create a nice subtle background. I first add a blue ribbon that was the same color of the bluebirds but I was not sure that it added more or if it took away. Anytime I am in doubt, I go with the less is more approach.

I love pink and brown color combinations. This card was created using Memory Box brown paper as the base card. The image was stamped on Cream Textured Soiree Paper and was matted using paper from the 6 x 6 Gossamer paper. The stamps used were the Tree Frame and Vine Border (tiny flower) Stamps from the Memory Box What’s in the Box 2010 Release. The Tree Frame was stamped using Brilliance Pearlescent  Chocolate ink. The flowers were stamped using ColorBox Orchid ink and was accented with Smooch Ink in Taffy.

  1. Love, love what you did with the second card. The colors are lovely and the stamping off technique very effective.
