The Artisan Design Team’s April box of products is a celebration of the Occasions Catalog. This catalog really has something for everyone! I suspect you will see that in your hop this week. If you have come over from amazing Jeanna, welcome to the next stop. If you are starting here, just continue around using the next buttons until you get back to me.
I’m saying this very, very carefully but I think it is here for real. HELLO SPRING!!! So happy to see you!! Enough to dedicate a card to you!! The stamps in Springtime Hello are so delicate and pretty. I love them so much. I wanted to find a way to show them off and not have the pretty artwork get lost in the card. So I stamped the flower and bee using Basic Gray Ink onto Naturals Ivory paper. I used my Blender Pen to touch on Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz. Then I created a frame using the Ovals Framelits and stitched around the edges to add a little something special. I stamped the sentiment in Basic Gray and then sponged Crumb Cake Ink on the frame layer inside and out. The stamped panel was cut to size to hide behind the frame and I attached the two with Dimensionals then attached the entire thing to my base. I added a couple of little pearls to the flower centers for a last pretty detail.
While the colors are muted on this, it feels just like my yard. All the browns are beginning to be dotted with color. And I could not be happier about it! I’m so glad you stopped in to visit today. I’ll be back with another Freshly Made Sketch tomorrow!!
Okay, off to go visit the awesome Mercedes Weber. I can’t wait for you to see what she has created! Make sure you hop around the whole loop to take a look at beautiful creations by the whole team…you’ll be happy you did!
