Bright Blossoms Versatile Card

Ok, for this week my new favorite set is the Bright Blossoms.  And it will remain my favorite until something else comes along that I can't keep my hands off!  I have wanted this set ever since I saw it at a Stamp-a-Stack in May.  I LOVED everything about it, including the decorative papers, of which I don't have YET!  

This set can cover SO many occasions.  I thought I wouldn't add any wording on the front so I could use it for a birthday, get well, anniversary and even a sympathy card if I needed.  It's just such a sweet set.  I LOVE all the little images in the set and I am looking forward to playing with them all!  It's one of those sets that I know I will be wanting to play with them all.  I have a little project that I'm working on that is using a few images from this set and I will share it with you as soon as I'm done with it.  I have LOTS of little projects going on. It would be marvelous to be able to finish up some of them!!!  I just imaging all the drawer and cupboard space I would have if I got these projects done!  But on the other hand I'd just fill up those spaces with more projects or "stuff."  But then on another hand (LOL) I'd have the room to do that now wouldn't I?  LOL  

Anyway, this was a very fun card to make, it has a clean look to it, it was quick to make and simple too!  And I was able to play with the fun embossing folder to make that adorable frame!!  I don't play with those very often because I forget I have them.  Plus you need smaller images for them!  This set works perfectly for that, as you can see!

My card ingredients:  The base of the card is on Whisper White card stock, then a 5-3/8" x 4-1/8" piece of Pacific Point card stock was taped in place on top of that.  Then a piece of 5-1/4" x 4" of Whisper White that was textured using the Dotted embossing folder was added to the top of the Pacific Point piece.  I took a scrap piece of Pacific Point card stock measuring 2" x 3-1/2" and taped a piece of Pacific Point decorative paper measuring 1-7/8" x 3-3/8" on top of that.  Then the stamped frame was set in place using Dimensionals.  For the stamped frame, I used markers to color in the images on the stamp and stamped it on Whisper White card stock.  Then I lined it up in the folder and embossed it.  Once you close the folder the card stock seems to stay in there tightly.  It didn't shift at all when I ran it through the Big Shot.  

I thought this was a very fun card to make. I LOVE coloring on the stamps with markers.  It's such a fun technique!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
