Easter Favorites & More for February Team Favorites

**Affiliate links are used when possible at no charge to you!**

Hello! It is time for Team Favorites week!  

One of my favorites this month was the fun Coffee Cup stencil. I am a fan of festive prints IRL, so I made a colorful coffee cup. I placed the Coffee Cup stencil down first and added the Pysankey Eggs stencil. Lastly, I added a sentiment from the Easter Squares stamp set. Don't you think coffee would taste extra special in a pretty cup like this?  


This next card is simply sweet! I used the new Ring of Circles die and stamped a flower from the Cup of Sweetness set. Lastly, I stamped Be Amazing from the Be Amazing set!  :)






To see all the Team Favorites stop by the Impression Obsession Blog!  

Let me know if you currently working on Spring cards. I would love to know!  :)  So glad you stopped by today!

Geometric Shapes for the F4ALL

***Affiliate links used when possible at no charge to you!***

Hello!  
We are featuring geometric shapes for this week's Free 4 All Challenge at SCS. I started to use an abstract set I have, but then I remembered I had yet to use the Layered Easter Egg stencil. I chose a sentiment from this month's Limited Edition Kit. I have been having fun with the new Basics paper packs! The one I used for this card is Basics 13 - Grays.  I finished the card with some tags from the Small Tags Die set.  

We would love it if you stopped by SCS and joined us in this week's challenge!


Thanks so much for stopping by; I hope you have had a great week!

I hope you found a lot of Spring inspiration yesterday.  

I stenciled a print on the background for today's card using the Four Petal Stencil. I stamped one of the sentiments from the Kit directly on the background. For fun, I added a couple of Stitched Clouds to the little scene. Once again, I had a wonderful time creating with these cute chicks!
