April Showers Bring Bright Blossoms!

Hello Stamp Friends!

Today I would like to share a card that I made using products that are available for purchase in the month of April. Then they won't be available again until the new catalog is live on June 1st. There are two items that are only available until April 30th. That's the Summer Smooches Decor Stencil & Designer Fabric Brads. They will not be available in the new catalog. For further details, check out the flyer on the left sidebar.

I started with the Island Indigo base and then used a 2" x 5 1/2" piece of both the polka dot Tangerine Tango DSP & Summer Smooches DSP. Then I used a 1 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of Daffodil Delight and used the eyelet border on both sides. I then wrapped ribbon around and I attached the bow with glue dots. After running the Island Indigo through the Big Shot using the Designer Frames embossing folder, I then cut it out. I stamped the main image using markers and after stamping the little dotted flower, I punched it out using the 1/2" punch and attached it with a dimensional. I stamped the sentiment and punched it out using the Word Window punch and attached it to the background, which is Island Indigo card stock using the Modern Label punch. I put the sentiment on with a dimensional as well. Then I finished it off with two small rhinestones. What do you think? I love the colors! This DSP has to be my favorite! I'm so into Bright colors:)
