Hello and welcome to my blog!
I'm a wife of over 20 years to my supportive husband Dan and mother to our three children ages 18, 15 & 6. Rubber stamping and card making are my creative outlet and help to keep me sane but I also enjoy scrapbooking from time to time, reading historical fiction/historical romance novels and watercolor painting as well as spending time with family and friends. I hope you enjoy the projects I share here on my blog.
Hello, hello!!! I don't know about you but I'm ready for spring. Looking out my window today and seeing all the fresh falling snow is beautiful but I'm longing for green grass and flowers and that's what inspired my projects today.
For my card and pillow box birthday set, I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Embroidered Blooms along with the coordinating flower and Turning a New Leaf dies. I'm also entering this set in The Play Date Cafe Color Challenge #167 and my pillow box in thePapertrey Ink Make-it-Monday Challenge #102. The colors for The Play Date Cafe challenge are my absolute favorite colors, they're colors I wear and colors I have in my home so I knew I had to join in and create a project for it.
The closest thing I have to magenta for paper is pink passion so that's what I went with for my flowers and ribbon. A few details about my card and pillow box: the daffodil delight background panel and Happy Day die-cut piece on the pillow box were randomly stamped with flower images from the EB set and then embossed using a PTI impressions plate for added texture. The Embroidered Blooms leaves were stamped several times on the white focal panel on my card and then I die-cut and stamped a set of the leaves and cut them apart to add around my pink flower.
