You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Rose Ann Marr's blog. You can follow the full blog hop lineup below to move along from blog to blog, so you can see all of the new projects.
For this month's theme challenge I chose spring in the form of spring flowers...which we somehow already have in our flower beds here in California! Though I'm betting our recent blast of cold weather and rain is going to kill them... darn it!
I love how fast the photopolymer stamps like this set allow you to create a beautiful card without having to waste time lining the stamps up. It's completely clear so you can see exactly where to stamp those beautiful flowers on the stems! :)
Some Stampin' Tips:
- Coordinating products. Stampin' Up! is great with coordinating tools to stamps to help you make beautiful projects quickly! I used the coordinating Spring Flowers Embossing Folder that matches the Painted Petals Stamp Set... don't you think?!
- Coordinating colors. One of my favorite things about Stampin' Up! is that all the colors match. What shade of brown is that? Baked Brown Sugar. The Thick Twine and the cardstock match perfectly. It makes it so easy to have beautiful results when you craft without the agony of trying to match the shade you have... you will know! :)
- Add some dimension! Notice how my card looks 3-D? It's because I added some Stampin' Dimensionals to my white notecard I stamped! They pop your pieces off your project, adding depth and dimension (hence the name?!). I rarely complete a project without them! Have you tried them yet?
The next stop is Cari Verschueren on the Jax Starz Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting and I'll see you next month.
