We need Spring! Atleast, I need spring and spring doesn't seem to want to come, so I thought I'd atleast "stamp spring"! heeee! It did help, for a few minutes! lol
This A-2 size card is made from the Stampin Up "Serene Spring" stamp set. My card base is Very Vanilla, I stamped the background onto Kiwi Kiss with the Bella Toile background stamp in SU Chocolate Chip ink. I cut a piece of Very Vanilla to use as as another layer under the image and stamped it with the SU Scallop Punch. The verse from this set is stamped in Chocolate Chip. I did a straight line of piercing across the top of this ivory layer and did some "faux stitching" with the SU Chocolate Chip marker. Next, I pierced in scallop to add a little dimension. I wrapped a piece of 1/4" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon around it.
I stamped my main image in Stazon Black ink onto a small piece of Stampin Up Watercolor Paper. I then colored in the image with my SU Watercolor Crayons. I just love those crayons!! The colors are so beautiful and the crayons last a long, long time. I stamped the flower pot twice and cut out the flowers, so I could use dimensionals to raise the flowers so they look 3-D. If you look closely you can see that I added a little bit of Dazzlin Diamonds glitter to spruce it up a bit. I punched the watercolor paper with the SU Ticket Corner punch in the upper right corner. I then layered the image onto a piece of Riding Hood Red cardstock.
I put all my layers together and viola, "Serene Spring" for a day!!! I'm happy with the way it turned out. I hope you like it, too.
Thanks so much for dropping by. I appreciate your comments, they make my day!!!!
