Hello and hope you are having a good day. I have been quite busy recently and it is harder to get cards not only made, but then photographed and blogged. I am also in the process of moving my craft space to another room (I currently craft in an old computer armoire, and will be moving to a larger desk soon - stay tuned...).
However, I was able to get a second card made for the April Edition of my Flower of the Month Series! The first flower for April was Daisy, and the second is the Sweet Pea! They won’t bloom where I live till around June, but they are so pretty. I have this framed stamp from Stacy Stamps’ Framed Flowers line, which I found out was another flower of the month stamp line! I didn’t even realize it! Peruse all of them here.
I started coloring this stamp with alcohol markers one evening, and when it came time to work on the frame, I blanked. I set it aside. The next morning right before I woke up, I dreamed that I was paper piecing that frame. Not kidding! That was the perfect idea, and that is what I ended up doing. The rest of the card is clean - just added a pretty sentiment from Just for Fun.
Supplies: Stacy Stamps April Sweet Pea stamp, Memento and Versafine black inks, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, Prima Nature Garden 6x6 Paper pad, Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Unmounted Sentiments 1, Avery Elle Wonky Stitched rectangles die, speckled paper and cardstocks from my stash.
I would love to enter SimonSaysStamp Monday Challenge Flower Power.
