Bright Blossom Choices

Today's card idea is using the new Bright Blossoms stamp set that's available this month as a sneak peak to what is coming in the new catalog. It's a cute set with lots of little stamps to make vases or bouquets of modern flowers. There's pretty much nothing realistic about this set, but it sure is lots of fun to use! We made some cards for our soldiers using this set and that went over big, so the set was used again for class last week. Here's the card the ladies all made...

Stamps: Bright Blossoms and Sweetly Said
Cardstock: Whisper White and Pacific Point with Twitterpated Designer Series Paper
Ink: Pacific Point pad, and Riding Hood Red, Garden Green, and Pacific Point markers
Accessories: Scallop Trim Corner Punch, Word Window Punch, Silver Brads, Mat Pack and Piercing Tool, and Dimensionals

Oh, yes. And a lot of hot air was used too! There sure was alot of huffing and puffing going on around here. But that's part of the fun of having ladies over to stamp together. They always find something to laugh and tease each other about. If you're around the Detroit area and are looking for classes, email me so I can send you particulars. We'd love to have you join us.

Ok, back to the card. I chose the Twitterpated DSP and particularly this print because I thought it went nicely with the images. I wanted an overall geometric print that wasn't too bold, but bright and happy. This one seemed to be just right without being overpowering. And the corner punch coordinated nicely with the print too for a cute accent.

Now about those choices I mentioned in the title. I chose to make a get well card, but there were stamps available to choose birthday, thinking of you, sympathy, and thanks. All of them worked well with this layout, and I think each of them was chosen by someone and used. Don't you just love cards that can be so very versatile?

Ok, that's it for today. Gotta get going and get something done before I'm mobbed with grandsons! Oh, but I can hardly wait!! Have a great day... Sharon
