I am so ready to see some spring flowers! In the meantime, I always enjoy stamping and creating some pretty floral cards. When I discovered WPlus9, the first set I knew I had to have was Mother's Day Bouquet. It has such pretty flowers. Later, I added Folk Art Florals to my collection, and, well, let's just say that my collection has grown considerably since then. :)
This week's Monday Mood Board challenge over at WPlus9 was great motivation to bring some spring into my craft room. Isn't that color palette just gorgeous??
On my first card, I created a plaid background and a pretty floral pattern in melon and yellows. I stitched around the edge of the floral panel and de-bossed it with a quatrefoil plate.
I added some beautiful doily details with the Lacey Layers stamp and die set, and topped it all off with a button card and heat-embossed, coaster board buttons. A little extra texture with some loopy bakers twine, and I called it complete.
I wanted to do a second card in a CAS style to let those pretty flowers take center stage.
I added a punched vellum butterfly layered under a fussy-cut stamped butterfly from the Mother's Day Bouquet set.
Two very different designs, but I love them both very much.
Happy Spring! :)
Thanks ever so much for stopping by!
