Spring Has Sprung- Three in One!

Hi Stampers! 

The weather here has been so spring-like this month that The Paper Players PP85 “Spring Has Sprung” Challenge seemed perfect!

 I decided to create a card using the “Spring” theme along with the FMS25 FreshlyMade Sketch and the CQC127 ColourQ colors.  All of the Design Teams and entries at both of these sites are wonderfully inspiring- if you have time, check them out!

To create this card:

Color the floral image with Stampin’ Write markers in Certainly Celery, Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride- “huff” and stamp the image onto Whisper White cardstock. 

Mount the focal image onto a layer of Chocolate Chip (punched on the edge with the Scallop Trim Border Punch). Add the 5/16” Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon bow and pearls.
The sentiment was created using the same floral image (“huff” on the stamp to re-moisten the ink), layering the Chocolate Chip and Blushing Bride cardstock (punched with the XL Oval Punch). 

Create the rolled flowers using the 1 3/8” Circle Punch- run each circle through the Crimper Tool, cut a spiral and roll up into a flower.  Add the pearl centers to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Just Believe, Love and Sympathy

Paper: Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery DSP, Everyday Enchantment DSP

Ink: Stampin’ Write markers- Blushing Bride, Calypso Coral, Certainly Celery
Accessories: Punches- 1 3/8” Circle, XL Oval, Scallop Trim; Crimper Tool, Pearls, 5/16” Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope all of you have a wonderful week stamping :-)
