Happy and Bright!

Good morning!  Its finally getting cold enough to snow here in NC, but still no snow :(  As much as I hate HOT weather though I have to admit I am looking forward to a few days of mid 70's in California!  So, with warmer weather on the brain, I thought I'd share a spring card today.

Today's card features a new background stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils called Flower Quartrefoil.  It will be available next week!  I ran the stencil through my cuttlebug with an embossing mat and an extra paper shim for more depth, then leaving the stencil in place I stippled Orchid and Peony Versacolor into the flower areas.  The centers I stencilled in yellow, then after I remove the stencil I added Clear Lemon embossing powder to the centers.

Here's a closer look at the flowers and the shading you can create with two shades of the same color.  I used the same stencil to simply dry emboss the yellow background (also using the cuttlebug) but its hard to see from the photo.

The thank you sentiment is a new stencil called Festive Thank You  that I chose to mask off most of the swirls and just leave the dots.  You'll see more of this stencil this week!

The cardstock and ribbon are both from Bo Bunny.  OK, thats it for this morning, but keep checking back in!  And don't forget to visit the other DT's blogs as well!


  1. Such bright and happy colors! Love the polka dot ribbon with it as well. The Lemon EP added great shine to the centers.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment! Every comment makes me smile :)
