Delightful Smooches

Good morning, Friends! It's spring break around here and the weather is definitely going to cooperate with that! Most beautiful!! And we get to sleep in a little! Nick will still have various practices to attend but he will get to have the days to do whatever he can think of! For me I have to think about the laundry and grocery shopping today. And I really need to do some stamping. Yesterday was a really fun day of stitching and I even signed up for another class! Yikes!! I am really getting into this! I am thinking of starting another blog to show off the pieces that I have made. Of course I won't have as much to post because it does take a while to finish a piece. But it might be fun! I will keep you updated on that. 

Today's card was inspired by one that I saw on Pinterest. I think that I did one like this before but I just love the grey and yellow! And I got a new stamp set, Bright Blossoms. This set will be in the upcoming 2012-2013 catalog but customers will be able to order it in April!! And it isn't just a stamp set. It's the beautiful Daffodil Delight seam binding ribbon and the designer paper along with some other goodies!! So be sure to ask your demonstrator about it!! For my card I started with a card base of Basic Grey. Then I stamped the Bright Blossoms with Daffodil Delight and Lucky Limeade markers onto a piece of Whisper White. This is adhered to the card base. I took another piece of Whisper White and punched a 1 3/4" circle on the right hand side and stamped the greeting on the left hand side from Friendly Phrases in Basic Grey. I added a piece of the Summer Smooches designer paper to the bottom part and rounded the corners on the bottom. I tied some of the new Daffodil Delight seam binding ribbon around the edge of the designer paper and popped this panel up on the card. My final touch was to add a flower that was punched from Daffodil Delight with the itty bitty shapes punch pack and a rhinestone. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
