Paper Smooches Green Thumb Spring & Valentine Cards

Paper Smooches is looking for a guest designer for February so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to play with my darling "Green Thumb" set that has been begging to see some ink.  I decided to challenge myself to create a variety of cards using a single set to showcase these stamps amazing versatility!

For my first card, I couldn't fight the urge to immediately pull out my Copic markers and color all the vegetable images in this darling set.  I paired them with some old Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety papers that I haven't had the heart to part with.  I thought they complimented each other pretty well.

For my next card I took the gardening boots and turn them into cheerful, happy rain boots!    Can I just say I would love to have all these boots in real life?!  They totally make me happy!  I stamped them onto shrunken down 6x6 prints from Doodlebug's Fruit Stand collection and bordered my card with coordinating strips of polka-dot washi tape.  I also popped up the top boot from each pair with foam tape for a little extra dimension.

For my last card I wanted to go in a somewhat unexpected direction and make a Valentine's day card with the watering can and heart images (and patterned papers, ribbon, twine & button by Doodlebug).  Kim Hughes is the master of adorable, punny sentiments and this one is so perfect!  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Make sure to swing by the Paper Smooches blog for loads of inspiring ideas using their fabulous stamp and die line-up!  :)
