Well in an effort to find my muse, I decided to play in one of my favorite challenge - the Featured Stamper Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. It did not take me long to find a card in her gallery that I wanted to CASE. You can see her beautiful card here.
For my card, I started off with the Best Buds image by Jackie Matthews, and removed the flowers. I printed it off twice so that I could cut out the leaf and pop it up. The sentiment is also from Squigglefly and is called Bloom With Happiness.
My flower was created with a Spellbinders rolled flower die. I cut it out of pink card stock and then rubbed the edges with some darker pink ink. This is the first time I've tried making a rolled flower with a die, and I found it very easy to do. I held it together with a little glue. I added a few swirls of stickles for some sparkle and punched butterflies in the corner of the sentiment. The holes in the scalloped circle were made with a paper piercer. At the very last minute I decided to add a little grass in the pot with some scraps from a grass punch.
I think it turned out pretty cute, but it will be a tough one to mail. I'll probably save this one to hand deliver some day! Want to see something else that's cute?
Doesn't he look regal? He was just hanging out with me enjoying the spring and I had to snap his picture! Enjoy your day!
