Hello spring! Well, kind of. If the weather where you are is anything like it is in MA then you have snow one day and then a couple days of 50 degree weather. Crazy. Luckily, I can make it feel like spring right my own craft room with the help of my Spring Release. Today, I'm sharing a card I made using one of my new stamps...and I think it will have you dreaming of spring!
For this card I used my Let Love Grow set to stamp some cute succulents in little colorful pots. I used various Hero Arts inks, which have quickly become some of my favorites again, to stamp three pots in a row. Just as a tip, make sure to really clean your stamp in between colors. You may be able to see that my blue post has a slightly green tinge to it. Oops.
For the center pot, I stamped the largest bloom and added some darker green dots around the petals. I love this little detail as it makes it look like a cactus! I stamped the other two pots with the smaller leaves and added some red dots at the base of them to act as little blooms. I wanted some more color so I knew I had to use some of the other elements that are included in the set.
Lastly, I white heat-embossed the sentiment which is from my Hoppy Easter set onto a light gray banner. I adhered this who panel to a blue scalloped rectangle and popped the panel onto a kraft card base that I stamped with a woodgrain background stamp. Then as a finishing touch I added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins. They have become my new favorite lately!
Overall, this card is perfect for sending a note to a friend to welcome the upcoming season. Plus, it's a great design to use to get some more mileage out of our favorite inks.
I hope you like my card!
