Spring Is In The Air

Hello Crafty Friends!!

Today I am featuring the new Gardening Tools Set from Frantic Stamper!!  Being that a LOVE gardening I was pretty excited to get this die set. 

Here's a photo of my in process work on creating this card:
I essentially die cut the gardening tools three times, each time on a different color of cardstock.  (Grey, Brown, Green)

I did nothing to the grey layer, but altered the other two colors slightly!

Here's a look:
I only cut the actual tool part off of the brown die cut pieces.  And for the green die cut pieces, I had to cut a little off the bottom and some of the top, so I would just have the portion you would hold.

Here's a look at the tools assembled. 
Super fun, don't you think?!?!
I sure think so!!

Here's my completed card:
I'm in love with how it turned out!!
A definite happy dance moment!!

A close-up:
The "Spring is in the Air" sentiment is part of the Cherry Blossoms stamp set from Inspired By Stamping!!

I think the added butterfly embellishment and pearls add the perfect touch!

I can't wait to get my gardening tools out of storage and dig in the dirt for the season!!


Have a lovely day!
