My Sweet Petunia and WPlus9: Thank you cards and a VIDEO

Hi everyone!
This is second post of the day (scroll down for post #1).
Today the My Sweet Petunia team is showing some love to WPlus9. I have been keen of WPlus9 stamps since Dawn started up and I have bunch of her stamps. Her floral images are amazing. 

For my card I used one of her new sets called Spring Blessings along with the coordinating dies and couple older sets for the sentiments.
Thanks to my MISTI I was able to easily and quickly do some mass producing. I die cut all the images from white card stock several times, then using the negative in my MISTI as a guide I was able to quickly and easily stamp and color layer the images, then just assembled my panels, stamped sentiments and did some stenciling on my note cards!
Scroll down for list of supplies, give away details and hop list. 
And please show Dawn some love if you are able to -- WPlus9

Impression Obsession: Old is New

Sometimes we get so busy with new released stamps that we forget about our old favorites. The Impression Obsession team has set aside a couple days a month to share some new projects using some great older stamps. You can see the list of today’s participants on the Impression Obsession blog.
For my card today I used the Feels Like Spring stamp that is also available as a digital file that you can instantly download and start making cards.
I used the digital file and printed and colored the image.
Once colored I trimmed it to 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" , I layered it on piece of Paradise cards stock, then onto Light Gray card stock note pad that I have previously stamped the Chevron background using Mist ink.
