For my first card, I used this sweet Happy Spring set. Aren’t these little ducklings adorable? You can almost feel how soft and fuzzy they are! After stamping & coloring, I used my out of the box technique and die cut with a square. I left the die in place and sponged a little yellow ink inside the corners. The leaf sprigs were die cut using an ODBD Fancy Foliage die and I used the tag die from the ODBD Recipe & tag dies for the greeting. The background was stamped with just the orange & yellow colors of a rainbow pad using the ODBD Vintage Mini 1 image and a left over corner of the ODBD Daisy Chain die was added on the right. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

On my second card, I used the wonderful Easter Basket set. Isn’t it pretty? After coloring, I die cut a rectangle frame out of white textured card stock and added the greeting on the frame. I didn’t have any paper to go with it, so I made a background using a spritzer & several Easter colors of Copic markers. After spritzing, I used a small paintbrush dipped in Copic blender solution to splatter it creating the Easter egg colored background you see here.
