 I created a sweet spring card with this charming folk art stamp set!  The colors are a bit non-traditional, but they still screamed Spring to me, especially when combined with this cute stamp set.  Here is what I created!
"Happy Spring" supplies:
Cardstock: The Paper Company (kraft) & Papertrey Ink (vintage cream) 
Paper/Lace: Glitz Design (Happy Travels 6x6 paper pad) 
Doily: Wilton
Stamps: WPlus9 (Spring Tags & Folk Art Floral sets)
Dies: WPlus9 (Circle Stackers, Timeless Tags 1), Spellbinders (Lacey Circles) & Papertrey Ink (Medium scallop)
Ink: Clearsnap (Stephanie Bernard Dye: strawberry, chocolate & Pigment: turquoise)
Distress Ink/Blending Tool: Tim Holtz (antique linen) 
Ribbon: Renaissance by Design
Twine: May Arts
Button: American Crafts
Flowers: Recollections
Pearls: Want 2 Scrap
Corner Rounder: Creative Memories
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Make card from kraft cardstock, then round the right hand corners.  Cut a floral paper block, round the right hand corners and adhere to the middle.  Stamp the floral accents to the right hand corners of the card.  Diecut a scalloped border to red paper, then wrap lace around the left side of it.  Cut a strip of striped paper, stamp the heart motif to the left side of it and distress ink the edges.  Adhere the striped paper to the scalloped border, then adhere to the left side of the card.  Distress ink a doily and adhere to the front.  Diecut a lacey circle from red paper, then adhere to the doily.  Diecut the lacey circle and regular circle, then distress ink the edges.  Layer together, then stamp the images to it.  Layer on top of the lacey circle using foam adhesive.  Tie a bow from aqua dotted ribbon, tie a button around the middle with twine, and adhere.  Diecut a tag from floral paper, stamp the sentiment to it, and add to the front of the card, slightly tucked under the button.  Accent the stamped tag & circle with pearls, then add two flowers to the bow to finish.
