Spring Quartet, Jillibean Style

So this is what it feels like ... to make four cards in one sitting. I don't think I've ever done that before! I'm usually far too slow. I took my inspiration for this fun Spring quartet from some super adorable Jillibean Soup Egg Drop Soup papers that I've been sitting on for probably a year now. Love the cheery colors and the bold patterns!

I should mention that the card bases are all from Stampin' Up's very rich brown Early Espresso card stock. Love this earthy color and how it pairs with these bright, Spring colors. Too bad it looks black in the photos, though! 

First up is a sweet Hi There card:

Those sweet chicks with their adorable expressions crack me up!


This next one centers around the cute bunny print and a coordinating "Caution: Bunny Crossing" sticker:

The word "happy" comes from a sentiment in Love Story by Verve Stamps and the word Spring was done with some "Flutter" puffy alphabet stickers by Making Memories.



Next is a colorful Spring Has Sprung card:

The sentiment is a Jillibean Soup sticker, the umbrellas along the right side are from one of the Egg Drop Soup patterns, and the flowers stems were cut from another Egg Drop Soup pattern and topped with stamped tulips from Verve's Miracles Blossom. (And yes, I realize that's not what tulip foliage looks like {wink}).


Last is the card I actually made first (and then I couldn't get stopped!):

The leaf and ladybug are from a Flutter sticker pack (I think), and the little tab thingy in the upper right, along with the label, are both from a Jillibean sticker sheet. The sentiment is from Verve's Easter Joy set (currently on sale as part of Verve's Spring Savings Sale).


Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed today's cards as much as I enjoyed making them!
