Good Sunday morning! I did it again! I opened my brand new order from Ellen’s and realized I accidentally ordered two of the new Poppystamps Bailiwick Background. I’m sure Ellen would let me return it but I think it is lots more fun to share blog candy with you. Leave me a comment on my yesterday's post by Thursday, Jan 16 at 5:00 pm to qualify for a random drawing. Good luck!
One of my favorite color combinations to use for spring projects is Spring Moss by Papertrey and Almost Amethyst by Stampin’ Up! But with that said for some reason it is a hard color combination for me to photograph. I’m sure it is the fault of the user and not the camera or colors themselves.
I cut the background, attached tiny strips of mounting tape around the border and tiny pieces on several of the leaf flourishes and attached it to the card base. I wanted the background to be popped up to add dimension and interest.
I cut the leaves and flowers, formed with my stylus and molding pad and assembled using glossy accents. I attached the flower to the center of the card and attached several leaf sections around to create a natural arrangement. I cut the flower mound, formed with my tiny tipped stylus and molding pad and attached all around the leaves and flourishes to add another element of color. I added a few butterflies to bring another element of spring to the project.
I finished by attaching tiny white pearls to the center of the flower and to the butterflies. I love the soft colors and spring feel of this card. Too bad the photos don’t do it justice.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day.
