I figured I needed a touch of Spring. I've been working on this card for what seems like days. I started with the pattern paper which is usually a mistake with me. I'm better off picking my stamps and then my paper but I had it in my head that I wanted to use some of my stash. The paper was from a bulk purchase at Costco, the border punch is a Martha Stewart and the stamps are from Stampin' UP!
The flowers I stamped with Lavender Lace which is the same color as the cardstock. Cut the flowers out added some glitter around the centre and then a dew drop for the middle. The leaves are stamped with Handsome Hunter ink on Sage Shadow Cardstock. The flowers are raised up with dimensionals as is the words "happy spring". Added a few rhinestones on the border for a little more bling.
Hope this makes you feel that Spring will come sooner rather than later!
For anybody in the Halifax area that is interested I will be teaching a beginner stamping class at The Cutting Garden. We are taking names now for people interested and then will be picking a date that is suitable for most. Also if there is enough interest we would look at daytime classes as well. A beginner stamping class focuses on different types of inks, stamps, embossing powders and their uses. You will also make three different cards using your new knowledge.
Have a good day and "Think Spring"! (They do say - Mind over Matter)
