Spring is in the Air (and a freebie sentiment)

I'm such a lucky girl as I've been privileged to be able to play with some of my favourite stamps today from the Stamp Fairy.  They are our sponsors this week at Incy Wincy Challenge Blog, and their images are simply adorable.  They are all designed by Gerda, who I'm thrilled to say is also our guest designer for this week.  Her talents are exceptional and the images she designs are delightful.  Please pop on over to the Incy Wincy blog to see all the designs from our guest designer Gerda and the rest of the talented Incy Wincy design team.

I really hope that the beautiful cards we've created inspire you to have a look at the Stamp Fairy images, as they are just gorgeous and very reasonably priced.  Trust me, you will get loads of use out of them as they are so versatile.


Anyway, onto the theme of this week's challenge at Incy Wincy, which is 'Spring is in the Air'.  I've chosen spring themed colours of bright yellow and orange, and used a Linda Fairy image.  If you have a look at the link I've supplied here, then you'll not only find the lovely Linda Fairy, but also a free circle sentiment provided by the generous Gerda to go with her! 

For my card, I've actually used one of my own ticket sentiments as it went with the 'Springtime' theme of the challenge, and also used some lovely bright yellow daisies that I've had for years and not used much.  I used an edging punch to create a rectangle of golden yellow card behind the image, and some daisy paper behind that, edged at both ends with golden yellow ribbons. I've coloured Linda with my Promarkers, and then rubbed over and around the image with yellow shimmer chalks to make her sparkle.  Not sure that's come out very well in the photo though!


Please pop on over to the Incy Wincy challenge blog to see the stunning cards created by the rest of the design team, and to enter our 'Spring is in the Air' challenge for this week.  I look forward to seeing your creations.

By the way, if anyone is interested in the "Spring has Sprung" ticket sentiment that I've used in this card, please help yourself below.  I would just ask that you please respect my requests below :
  • Become a follower (if you're not already) so you'll see new freebies that I add in future, 
  • Leave a comment on this post to let me know you've downloaded it, so I know it is worthwhile in doing more freebies,
  • Finally, please don't share it directly with others, but instead I'd be delighted if you point them here to collect it themselves if anyone asks you to share.
I've been inspired by the following:
Happy crafting.
