Pinfluence: Spring Inspired

Greetings! Yesterday I was up on the 
 with a couple of takes on fun finds found on Pinterest.
 I went in search of things that reminded me of Spring:
  rain showers, umbrellas, Easter eggs, rabbits, etc.
 In doing so, I came up with these two pins that inspired the cards featured here.
We are calling this ‘Pinfluence.” 
Both of my cards were created using the brand new “Hello Sunshine Collection” 

For my first card, I've used this vintage Easter postcard:

Next, I went on hunt to find the perfect cutting file that combined a similar bunny and Easter eggs. 
Following the color pattern, I selected various papers from Hello Sunshine and began
 cutting all of the pieces. The end result is this nostalgic card: 
Before assembling the pieces, I did add some shading around the edges with chalk. 
Foam adhesive also gives more personality as you begin layering on the pieces.

The egg was also decorated in iridescent glitter, a vellum word and a couple of strands
 of baker’s twine glued into place.

I think that the Puddle Jumper Paper is the perfect background for the bunny card…
after-all, a little rain never stopped the Easter bunny :)

My next point of inspiration is a photograph that I found on Pinterest: 
I was enamored by the cool rings created by the drops of rain and brought that look to my next card

To create the background, I started with a piece of paper cut from the Happy Days Paper
To that I added raindrops using a stencil and Pearl Modeling Cream; this gives a nice dimension to the background. Allow the modeling cream to dry and then begin embellishing. 

For the puddle I used nesting circle dies and cut out various patterns and then layered them 
together with foam adhesive. For the sentiment, I trimmed down one of the vellum tags 
and attached it to the side of the puddle with glue dots. 

Add even more dimension to the raindrops with those adorable Puffy Stickers.
 And that’s a wrap-up for my Pinterest inspired cards for today…hope you enjoyed!

On another note, I'm so very SUPER excited to share that my card using
this same "Hello Sunshine" Collection will grace the cover of the
 Spring Edition of CARDMAPS4 by Scrapbook & Cards Today and PageMaps!

I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
