Today I have 2 cards using the supplies in Simon's March Card Kit.  It has sadly sold out, but many of the elements are available.  I was so tickled to see the tiny gingham stamp in the Choose Joy stamp set, and that's the first thing I grabbed when I opened my box.

supplies: white, purple, Lemon Chiffon card stock, Simon's Choose Joy stamps, Wisteria ink cube, My Favorite Things Mini Stitched Scallop Square die, Zig markers, adhesive foam squares

I stamped the gingham square 4 times to make a larger background gingham, then cut it out with a scalloped die.  Separately, I stamped, colored and fussy-cut the darling pair of boots and made a sentiment banner.  Both of these are in the stamp set.  Since the background was square, I followed suit and made a square 4 1/4" card.

This next one uses a design paper and a sticker from the kit:

supplies: Green Apple card stock, Carta Bella Spring Market design paper and sticker from Spring Market sticker sheet

I fussy-cut the line of flowers and the awning from the pad of design papers, attached them to a scrap of white card stock, lifting the awning with foam, then affixed the whole thing to a Green Apple card.  Then I added the sentiment sticker.

Darling card Lin. Those boots are so sweet and ya, the gingham would have been something I grabbed at first too.

Both are perfect Spring cards. Love the colors on the boot card and how you used the papers in a totally different way on the second card.

Oh, what beautiful spring cards, Lin! I love gingham, and this is so sweet with the little Wellies filled with spring flowers! And what beautiful DP for the second card! Super darling with the flowers and the awning! I love it and look forward to seeing more spring flowers! Hugs!

Both cards are lovely, but the boots are just the cutest. I could use a pair with the rainy weather we have been having lately. TFS!
