Spring Floral Card for the Stampers Showcase April 2019 Blog Hop

8:00 AM Jessica Brigden 9 Comments

Welcome to the Stamper's Showcase April 2019 Blog Hop!  
This month's theme is all about Spring & flowers.  I had a great time designing these fun "Hello" cards in spite of the fact that it snowed here in NY yesterday and Spring apparently hasn't gotten the memo that the temperatures are supposed to start warming up!  At least it feels warm & cozy in my stamp room!
For the challenge this month I pulled out the retiring Floral Statements stamp set.  I haven't used it in awhile but I'm sad to see it go.  The flowers are versatile and can be colored to suite just about any flower you need - a flowering crab apple, a beach rose, or even a magnolia.
For the first card I used the retiring In Color Berry Burst.  I'm really going to miss this color!  And that In Color ruffled ribbon is gorgeous!  Though we don't have a set of Berry Burst Blends I thought the Lovely Lipstick Blends coordinated pretty well. I stamped the background with the retiring Sheet Music background stamp.
You can see here that I stamped the image a second time, colored it, and then fussy cut it with my paper snips and popped it up on top of the main image to add some fun dimension.  I used my bone folder to gently curl the petals a bit.
For this second card I couldn't resist pairing it with the  Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper which will be making its debut in the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog coming out on June 4th.  That beautiful Petal Pink & White Variegated Ribbon is retiring though too so be sure to snatch some up before it sells out!
