Think Spring!

IMG_5134Think Spring!

That’s not what’s happening around here.  It was for the past few days because the weather has been gorgeous but those pesky weather people are predicting a “Big Storm”.  They’re saying up to 16″ is possible by Sunday.  I know….this is nothing compared to what the East Coast has been getting hit with but since we’ve had a pretty wimpy winter so far this is something to talk about.  I’ll let you know how those weather predictions panned out!  🙂

This gorgeous card is made using the Sale-a-bration stamp set Lotus Blossom.  It’s not a 2-step stamping stamp set, it’s a 3-step stamping stamp set!  Yep!  3-step stamping.  You use three different stamps to get that gorgeous blossom.  With most 2-step stamping you just ink up each individual stamp and stamp away.  You do that with 3-step stamping too…..except when you use really dark colors.  On this blossom I actually stamped off.  The first stamp I stamped on the card stock full strength.  The second stamp I stamped off once and the third stamp I actually stamped off twice.  You really need to play a little with the different colors to figure out how much, if any, you need to stamp off.  It all depends on the look you’re going for.

The gorgeous designer paper is from the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper.  I need to say it again…..GORGEOUS!   Of course it coordinates perfectly with the Painted Petals stamp set and the Spring Flowers Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Coordination!  Woo Hoo!

Did you notice the pretty little jewels on the card?  Did you notice that they’re purple?  I colored them with my Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities Markers!  They’ll color almost anything!  Did you know that the Blendabilities are items that you can get for FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 order?  Yep!  FREE!

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
