Spring Blossoms- Floral Birthday

Hi Friends!

I have had a great time creating cards  with the February release stamp set, Spring Blossoms from Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps

I love the pretty floral images in the Spring Blossoms Clear Stamp Set as well as the sentiments – so versatile!

Also, don’t forget for every $60 purchase (not including discounts or shipping), you can receive the February stamp of the month- Hoppy Easter- isn’t it cute!!  Plus, Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps has free shipping and handling on your $75 order (in the US) so this is a great deal!!

 If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites or the SNSS Blog/FB Page yet, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). De-static a piece of white cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the daffofil image from Spring Blossoms with archival black ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool.

2). Once the embossing has cooled, color the image with water-based markers (see colors below in the card recipe) and fussy-cut the image.

3). De-static a scrap piece of black cardstock with an embossing powder tool, stamp the Spring Blossoms sentiment with embossing ink, apply white embossing powder and heat set with the heat tool.  Create the flag banner by hand and set aside.

4). Die cut the remaining elements of the sketch from designer paper with stitched dies (I wanted to use up some of my massive stash of dsp).  Mount onto black or white cardstock, trimming close to the edge and mount onto a white card front.

5).Add the fussy cut daffodil and sentiment with dimensional foam and add the light pink triple ribbon bow.

6). Finish off the card using a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the flower petals, a white paint pen to add highlights to the flower center and a few iridescent sequins to the card front.

Oh Julie, what a wonderfully bright and cheery card you've created! I love the colours in the background and the way you've overlapped the patterns. The daffodil is breath-taking! Love the way it demands attention. You've added just the right finishing touch with that lovely soft pink bow and those sequins, too. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

What a beautiful stamp set. I love how you created this card with the focus on the flower and all the coordinating layers. Your daffodil is so fresh and beautifully coloured. I love everything about this card. Thanks so much for joining us at the Watercooler Wednesday "Feminine Anything Goes" challenge this week and inspiring us Julie.
