Spring Things Collection: Hello Sunshine and Creative Cards by Mendi

Hello Doodlebugs!  It's Mendi here today with a handful of fun projects showcasing Doodlebug's new Spring Things Collection!  
Doodlebug Design Spring Things Ladybug, Frog & Bumblebee Card Trio Set by Mendi Yoshikawa
Up  first is a trio of cards highlighting all the fun critters from the collection!  As I was working on my projects (shown below) I realized there were patterned papers that featured each of the iconic critters so I couldn't resist creating a sweet set of cards highlighting a few of them.

Half of the Spring Things odds & ends pack come with clear die-cuts which is super fun. To adhere my clear title, I used Spray Mount adhesive in a cardboard box (extra important) for an invisible hold.  Don't forget to remove the clear plastic covering from the top of your die-cuts when you're done.  They have a thin layer of protection to help them from getting scratched & smudged which is super awesome.

To complete my scene in the bottom, left-hand corner I punched a grassy border from some petite print paper and embellished with some of the fun So Tweet and Pastel Posie Shaped Sprinkles.

Up next I have a couple more cards using the cut apart 4x6 and 4x4 panels found on the butterfly net and baby blooms double-sided cardstocks.  These panels are so perfect for quick and easy cards with big impact!   To give my panel extra pizazz, I layered some of the flower stickers from the icon stickers that were popped up with foam tape and then topped them with some matte sprinkles.

For my final project of the day I used a 4x4 panel and embellished it with the hello sunshine doodle-pop and a birdie from the So Tweet sprinkles.  
Phew!  Are you still with me?  ;)  I hope I've inspired you to take a closer look at this happy collection.  I love that there are so many fun ways it can be used year 'round.  Make sure to stay tuned to see all the amazing inspiration the team has in store for you.
