happy spring!

I don't know what the weather has been like in your neck of the woods, but here it is finally beginning to look like spring after a REALLY long winter!

I've noticed I've been using a lot of pink and brown, or brown and blue lately - and this card is an example of that.  I love these colors together, and the texture adds so much.

Here is how it all went together: 

  • The image and greeting are from the Stampin' Up! set Easter Blossoms.
  • The card staock, ink and ribbon are also stamping up.  I used Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, and Cameo Pink.
  • I also used colored pencils and Gamsol to color the flowers. 
  • The texture is from the Square Lattice SU! embossing folder.
  • I also used the medium oval SU! punch.
I began by stamping the branch image which chocolate chip, and then coloring in the flowers and  some leaves with colored pencils and Gamsol.  I then used a dauber to rub Cameo Pink on the outside edges.  The white card stock is then placed on the lighter brown.  Be sure to glue it down firmly.  Then the whole thing is placed through the Cuttlebug in the embossing folder. Then it is placed on to the dark brown card stock.

The Chocolate Chip ribbon was placed on the pink card stock using the 1-hole ribbon technique and then the other piece added.

Please let me know if I can help with any questions! 

happy stamping!  hope to see you again soon!
