FMS220 - Sending Hugs

Do you hear the panic in my typing??!!!!  The snow is coming, the snow is coming!!!  And apparently lots of it to Northern Virginia.  So I did what any reasonable stamper would do…..I created a happy spring card with not a snowflake in sight!  Over at Freshly Made Sketches this week we have an awesomely fun one for you to try.  It comes courtesy of the lovely Jen Brum who has clearly decided to embrace her fears as a new year’s resolution.  She notoriously does not like it when we put circles in the sketch and then she went and created this one!  Bravest woman I know, haha!

I played around with the idea of flowers and was looking through the stash when I saw this little floral spray in my Beautiful Day stamp from Altenew.  I thought it would be perfect to use in the corner and I just love how this turned out.  Using WPlus9 Black Dye Ink, I stamped the image onto Shimmery White Paper (SU) then added a couple more little flowers from the set to fill out gaps.  With my Zig Water Pen, I colored using Tim Holtz Distress Inks.  Easy and so pretty!  Then I lined up the sentiment on my Misti and stamped in the WPlus9 Ink again.  I stamped another few flowers inside the card (you can see them peeking out) and colored them up to.  Fast and oh so happy!

FMS Final 220-001I hope you enjoy this one as much as I liked making it.  Now hop right on over to the challenge and let’s see what you make of the circles!

Thanks so much for stopping in today.  Back on Friday with a fun Valentine card!  See you then!

Hi Jennifer,

OMG00dness you made me giggle SO HARD because I too have been crafting like made to spite the (here DULL rainy) weather! We are the conquerers, right?

Your sentiment is PERFECT – and I wish I could see the shimmery paper in real life, for I KNOW it would be 10 x prettier than it already is. Aren’t the TH distress inks just the best for painting? (next to real watercolor on proper watercolor paper that is …) (but then it would be a different effect) nevermind… I think you get me.

Ok, like I think I’m commented out for the day. I think after yours I’ll wind it up… what a GREAT finish – your card is lovely.


What a beautiful arrangement of flowers! Maybe your pretty Spring-like card will ward off the worst of the weather. I hope you’ve already made a grocery run. Whenever they predict snow or ice here in North Texas, you’d be hard pressed to find a loaf of bread or gallon of milk in any of the grocery stores. People go crazy! Just stay safe in your stamp room!
