AHSC #103 Hoping for spring

This winter is just lasting way to long.  I've not seen my front lawn at all....and probably won't until the end of April at least.  Which means my flower beds will stay buried until then too.  So the only way I'm going to see spring flowers is to decorate my cards with flowers.

Here is the sketch for this week:

I had fun playing with this sketch, and decided to omit the sentiment as I wasn't sure what it's purpose would be.  I used the Shower Flowers stamp once again, stamping a border of flowers across the bottom.  I then used the honeycomb embossing folder to create the honeycomb pattern across the entire background.  I love that CTMH had brought back some of Jeanette's stamps from when they were wood mount.

The stamp I used is Pick a Posy (B1426), which is now reitred. I used the Blossom paper and White Daisy cardstock for the mat as I fussy cute the cute girl out. I used 3D foam tape to adhere this to the card, and used Glacier Thick Twine for the wrap. The flowers are stamped in Sunset and Smoothie ink and the leaves and grass are in Pear ink.

I hope you will head over to Atlantic Hearts to see what the design team has created to inspire you this week.


  1. How sweet! So... when you have stamping on an embossed background I'm assuming you stamp before you emboss, but then I would think you'd see cracks in the ink? I don't see that on your card or others that I've seen..... so what is your trick?

  2. Such a cute, sweet card Michelle! Oh I hope you guys have seen the last of the snow soon! :) Being from Saskatchewan, I know the feeling of spring is never going to come! LOL

  3. Love the stamping on the paper that is embossed and the coloring is fun too! Cute Card!


I enjoy hearing from you, and love to get blog love for my creations. Thank you for visiting my blog.
