DT Samples- Spring Day 5

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Happy Friday to you! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit today. We are sampling DT cards using dies from the new Spring dies release.

They are in the online store and 25% off for a limited time. There are 27 new dies in the release and each one is cuter than the next. They will be perfect for your Easter and Spring card making.

We thought you might like to have some new and creative ideas for your Easter or Spring cards using these new dies. The cards today are both in a whimsical style. So let's get started with some details on the cards for today.
Card 1:  Our first sample today is from Jeanne Knobbe. She used the new Spring Frogs die to create her card. We get an extra day this month and it will be Saturday, February 29.  This only happens every 4 years. How often have you said "if only I had another day". Well now you do and Jeanne is celebrating that extra day.
The frog, lily pad and cattails are cut from white cardstock and colored with Distress Oxide inks.  The "water" behind the frog is a patterned paper as is the green background.
 For the sentiment, she stamped the "happy phrase" from a birthday sentiment set and then created the "leap day" using a small wood mount alphabet set. She stamped each letter at an angle for added interest and the up and down stamping adds to the leap theme.

Card 2: Our next card for today is from Anja Zurga. She used the new Rooster & Chick die to create this cute outdoor scene. It could be used for a variety of card giving occasions. Think about - thank you, thinking of you, get well or even a Father's Day card. If you changed the sentiment it could be Mother's Day or a birthday card.
The images are cut in white cardstock and then colored with distress inks. The rise and shine phrase is from the die of the same name.
Well, that's our samples for today. I hope the team has given you some fresh ideas on ways to use these new Spring dies. We will be back again tomorrow with our final day of group posts. And, if you are thinking of getting any of these new dies, they are on sale for a limited time in the online store.
