Today is my first blog hop, praying all goes well. Well! here goes. Our theme is Spring. Spring is such a lovely time with all the flowers, all the pollen that makes you sneeze and get allergies. The bees buzzing around when you wish they would go away.
My card is for a giving, caring person. This person does the little things that make you feel special. I love having friends like that. Leaving a diet Arnold Palmer on my porch table, then calling to say go check your table.
I decided to use the Birthday Blooms set for the umpteenth time today. I love this stamp set. It is so simple to make cards using it. I started with a base of Soft Sky cardstock, cut at 4-1/4 x 5-1/2. I scored it at 5-1/2.
I cut a mat 4 x 5-1/4 from a piece of the Springfoils DSP. This DSP is free with a $50 purchase until March 31. I colored the DSP using my Stampin Write Markers, Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sky. I adhered this to the base using liquid glue.
I cut two ovals, one using Blushing Bride cardstocks and the other using Whisper White cardstock. The Whisper White oval is used for the art piece.
I stamped the art piece using the Birthday Blooms set. I stamped the image in Memento ink, letting the image dry well so the ink would not blend when I colored it with the Stampin Write Markers Soft Sky and Blushing Bride. I popped this on the Blushing Bride pink mat using Stampin Dimensionals. I then popped it onto Springtime Foils DSP.
I stamped YOU on a small scrap of paper, using the Amazing You Stamp Set, this too is free with a $50 purchase. The inside sentiment is stamped on a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the One in A Million Stamp set.
Blessings, have a nice day.
