Thanks so much for hoppin' on by my blog! I am so thrilled to be participating in the first ever (EVER!) Waltzingmouse Stamps customer blog hop! Claire and her designs have inspired me so much, I wouldn't think of missing it! If you just happened by, the first stop on the hop is Claire's blog, and I really suggest hopping along for the whole thing! There are a lot of really talented crafters out there!
I used my new Spring Baskets and L'il Buddies stamp sets for my card. The weather has been really nice here lately, and it has been staying light later and later in the evening - could Spring have, well, sprung?
The first thing I did was select the base card color (my favorite retired "Soft Sky" from Stampin' Up!) and the lovely "Girl Friday" stripes from Cosmo Cricket. Next I stamped the cute flower image with Staz-On so I could watercolor them in the same colors as the striped paper. I ended up turning the scalloped edge upside down from the way I usually attach it. Doesn't it kinda look like a tulip or a flower when turned that way? Then I punched some little butterflies, added some blingy rhinestones, and finished off the front of the card with a sheer blush ribbon.
The stamps were so darned cute, and I couldn't find a place for the little bee on the front so decorated the inside, too!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Hop on over to see what goodies Tiffany has to share!
