Welcome to the 3rd Thursday BLOG HOP for April 2021. This month we are focused on giving our retiring favorites a FOND FAREWELL! The annual catalog comes to a close May 3rd, so this is the time to really decide what you want off that WISH LIST? Sometimes, I find I have a lot of sets I wish I had already collected, other times, I’m happy to see what will be coming along next.
Today’s project features the Flowering Blooms stamp set and coordinating dies. I also incorporated the Artistry Blooms DSP and coordinating sequins. A touch of BLEND ink for the images and we are ready to share this beauty of a card.
I do have a Stampin’ Show & Tell video to share, where I take you through my creative process of creating the card. Please enjoy the demonstration, and if you are inspired, leave me a comment below on the blog. I also share the instructions below for your crafting ease.
Now that you have visited with me, and I hope my project may have inspired you, it’s time to send you along to the next blog with ____________________ . Please leave me and the other paper crafters comments on our posts. We just love to know what you think of our ideas.
