For my card today I used the beautiful “Bloomin’ Wonderful” stamp set.  This is one of two of the stamps that are included in the stamp set along with various sentiments.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love this stamp set, it so reminds me that Spring is just a few days away!  I used Copics to color my image.  The designer papers are from the American Crafts Welcome Spring paper pad.  I used a MS border punch to make the little fence.  I just cut most of the die cut off to get the height I wanted.  The banner is a Simon Says Stamp die.  The doily is a die by Cheery Lynn.  I thought a couple of seed packets would be cute on the card.  What I did is searched for pictures of seed packets, then printed them out really small and cut them down to resemble seed packets.  Other supplies used are; MS leaf punch and border punch, Spellbinders round and scalloped dies, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.

The designer paper is by Kaisercraft.  I used the Spellbinders square scalloped dies to frame the image.  The image is colored with Copics and the sentiment was stamped onto the Spellbinders tag die.  The charm, ribbon, designer paper and card stock are all part of the card kit.

Guest Designer With Through The Craft Room Door!

I was very excited to be asked to be a guest designer for this weeks challenge with Through The Craft Room Door!  I got to work with this lovely digital image from Anne’s Digital Art.  This image is called “Catch Of The Day”.  It’s a perfect image for any male themed card!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The designer paper is from the American Crafts #Summer paper pad.  I embossed the blue panel using the Moroccan Screen folder by Cuttlebug.  The butterfly is a MS punch and I used the Icy White pearl pen on the body.  I framed the image by fussy cutting the Spellbinders Labels Seventeen….wow what a job to keep it so small!  I used a bit of Wink of Stella clear glitter on the fish….not so noticeable in the picture!
