IB167 Spring into Color

Happy Thursday, peeps!  Look at today's lovely spring confection from Inspired By: 

And here's the optional sketch:

I am a wee bit embarrassed to admit that I have NO tulip stamps or dies!!!  But I did find this gorgeous DSP from the Flower for All Seasons that featured similar colors, so I went full speed ahead with it:

For my layout, I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches:

I began by stamping a sentiment from one of SU's very first photopolymer stamps, Endless Birthday Wishes, in Magenta Madness and matted it on a piece of Magenta Madness cardstock that had been embossed with the Stitched With Whimsy die that I fussy-cut around the stitching.  I also added a few little flower sprigs from the DSP as well:

The scalloped portion at the bottom is Mint Macaron, stamped with the Buffalo Check stamp and diecut with the retired Seasonal Layers die; a little Mint Macaron ribbon adds some sheen:

It's a bit bold, but so is our inspiration photo!  It's fun to go out of one's comfort zone occasionally!  I hope you'll be inspired by our spring tulips this week and play along with us!  Check out what the DT did at the Inspired By blog as well!  Thanks for popping in today!

"I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow.  So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.  The man who plants and the man who waters have one purpose, and each will be rewarded according to his own labor." I Corinthians 3:6-8

Beautiful and so springy, LeAnne! So sad that Buffalo Check is retiring but it will live on in my stamp room! TFS and enjoy a warm afternoon! :)

LeAnne I have enough tulips for three crafters, and STILL buy more! It's okay, because this paper is absolutely gorgeous and takes us from Spring into Summer with all those flowers!

Donna W. said...

It is a beautiful bouquet of flowers and so spring like. I love the little flower accents around your sentiment.

Carol L said...

I love to see crafters getting mileage from those older stamps! Love the fonts on this sentiment and that bright pink color is electric! Beautiful card!

A lovely taste of Spring! Gorgeous card, Jo x

Lisa Elton said...

Don't be embarrassed, I don't have any either! Thankfully the little girl I used had a tiny bouquet of them in her hand! I think you card is lovely and oozing with spring!

It’s absolutely gorgeous, you shared how you don’t need tulips to create such an incredible card. I absolutely love it, from design to Buffalo check, amazing!
