Everything is super cute this month but if I have to choose, my favorite has to be the All Aboard - Spring cart add on. This set is fabulous with little chickies, egg carts and accessories that are too cute to pass for a fun Easter/Spring card. I could match this set with the other All Aboard series stamp sets which include the All Aboard set, Train carts and Bunch of Happiness add on! With all these, the possibilities are just endless! You can mix and match to create so many different scene cards that are great for the whole year. I had a blast using these and am sure you would LOVE them too! 😊

Here is a tri-fold card I've made using a combination of these stamp sets. There are so many cute little images that I love and had to put them all in a card. Fun and cuteness all in one ! Oh yeah ! 😁









For the card base, I used watercolor card stocks which I would usually use for distress ink blending. I cut a 8.5" x 11" size card stock to create a standard A2 size side folding card base. Then I cut a 4.5" x 5.5" piece and scored 1/4" on its side, fold on the scored line and align the line to the A2 size card base to make it into a tri-fold card.

For the card base background, I used mini ink blending tool to ink blend the card base using distress inks (color - spun sugar, tattered straw, mowed lawn, tumbled glass). I made a cloud stencil using YNS Puffy Cloud border die and stencil the sky with tumble glass distress ink.




Using white card stock, I die cut railway tracks using YNS fence die which I trimmed at its pointy sides and connected them to form one long track covering the whole length of this card. Or, you could simply use their new Train track die to save time and trouble. 👍




I stamped all the images on regular water color card stock using Versafine Onyx black ink and water color them using distress inks. These were then fuzzy cut out using my dainty scissors. 😊


I cut a slit around the egg cart window and tucked the chicks and peep in. Using Mono liquid glue, I glued down all the images and let them dry completely. I stamped the sentiments using Versafine onyx black ink and clear embossed them for a more defined look. On the background panel, I stamped the butterflies outline and glued down their wings. Gave shine to those butterflies and flower petals using my Spectrum Noir clear glitter pen. Lastly, some glossy accents around the wheels, train frame, flower center and the chicks' beak. And, my card is DONE ! 😊
