Buenos Pensamientos… Good Thoughts

Good Thoughts

I hope by now you have seen the versatility with the Blessed Easter stamp.  It has, hands down, become my favorite Spring stamp since making the tulips behind the fence.  If you didn’t get to see it…click here.

Good Thoughts

Lesson Learned:  Don’t be afraid to add a darker color when picking out Spring colors.  After I created the quick & easy layout I felt like something was missing… and I wanted to add a small pop of color.  Would you believe that the chocolate chip card stock was a tiny piece that was left over from a different project!?  Don’t be afraid to add a darker color when added tiny details.

Tulips in the Spring

Flowers Tulips Here’s the third card made with the wonderful Blessed Easter Stamp Set (Occasions Catalog, page 20).  This card is going all the way to France.  I belong to an international card swap group and each month we swap cards all over the country.  I can’t wait to send this off on Monday morning.  I really hope my swapmate loves it as much as I do.Flowers Tulips Unlike the other two cards I made with the Blessed Easter set, I only stamped it once and used Stampin’ Write markers with an Aqua Painter to soften the colors.  However, since I stamped it twice and cut out the tulips so that I may layer them, I did color the tulips with each marker directly on the paper so that the bottom gave off a rich glow.  The pictures just don’t do it any justice.  It’s absolutely goreous!Flowers Tulips

Tulips in a Flower Frame

Flowers Tulips Frame

This week was a very busy one for me and in between the chaos I found time to stamp just a couple of times.  However, last weeks Pals Blog Hop: Spring Is Here was what I called my 10th one hit wonder… LoL.  I’m working on my 11th, but I’ll need your help.  Emails continue to pour in about the Blessed Easter stamp I used.

The stamp set is in the 2014 Occasions Catalog, page 20 and I highly suggest you get yours now!  Also, my BFF Pam has challenged me to show you the versatility in this ONE stamp.  Can’t wait for you to see the other card I made already either… it’s crying out, “post me, post me, I’m next” LoL.

The snipping took the longest, but I know in my heart it will be loved once it is received by a very special friend of mine.  The picture below shows the inside of the card and the stamp I used for that is the Really Good Greetings Clear Mount, but you can write in it too.
