Cheery Cherry Blossom Thanks
by Michele K. Henderson
Hello Crafty Friends!
Are you in the mood for some happy thoughts? I am too, and nothing makes me happier than the thought of Spring right around the corner! We have got some absolutely beautiful new Clear Stamp Sets that welcome Spring in a big way. I used the brand new Memory Box Cherry Blossom Wreath and my favorite colored pencils to create a bright and colorful easy breezy card design that was a lot of fun to make too. T
Take a look!
The Cherry Blossom Wreath set includes both the beautiful stamps, and the amazing dies as well. I began by stamping the large wreath design on my MISTI a few times for a crisp, fine line drawing. Then I used a few colored pencils and played around with the petals and leaves, creating a bright blooming wreath.
The detail in the wreath and blossoms is amazing! Once I finished the coloring, I carefully lines up my die, then adhered the pretty wreath to my card base.
I added tiny foam pop dots pieces to the Thanks Outline and the Whittle birds, then mounted it onto the wreath. Easy Breezy, and perfect for so many occasions!
This wreath design was so much fun to play with, I stamped a few more wreaths in crisp black, and then a pigment white ink, then added embossing powder for a beautiful textured finish! I can't wait to try this with watercolors and copic markers too! Any way you create with this pretty Cherry Blossoms Wreath will remind you of the beautiful colors of spring!
Even my kitty, Omar, had to check out this awesome design!
Thanks so much for joining us today, and keep thinking those happy thoughts of spring!
