Spring Blooms for Mom

Hello again!  I'm back today with two cards featuring the newly released Spring Blooms Stamp Set, Spring Blooms Dies and Strictly Sentiments 4.

This is actually the first card I made with the new products. Floral stamp sets are by far my favorite and I was immediately drawn to Spring Blooms. I love the mix of flowers and leaves included in the set, there seems to be endless possibilities on how the images can be combined. 

I tend to use a lot of the same color schemes, especially when it comes to flowers.  My thinking isn't so outside the box, until today!  I went with a more modern and trendy combination by combining Wild Mango, Sweet Nectar and Silver Lining. I die cut several blooms and inked each in Wild Mango ink, then rolled the edges in Sweet Nectar before stamping down. This technique is a nice way to add interest to an image. The leaves were stamped twice in Silver Lining ink without reinking.

Next up is a more traditional color combo. Sweet Nectar is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. 

I've framed this beautiful sentiment from Strictly Sentiments 4 with blooms above and below. The placement of the images and sequins help draw your eye right to the sentiment. I found that my stamping was a bit high on the panel, so I stamped one of the border images from Borders & Backgrounds 4 to the bottom. This definitely helped to even out the design.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I'll have more to share with you tomorrow, so make sure to pop in again!!
