All about Spring flowers with Stampin Friends

Welcome to the April 2018 Stampin Friends Blog Hop, this month the theme is all about Spring - here in Australia we are heading into winter, so for me it's a chance to remember all those beautiful blooms before the leaves start dropping and so does the temperature.

So feeling a little sad, I decided to pull out the Blooms and Wishes set - why sad, it is retiring, so I thought I would get it inky again to show you what a wonderful set it is to have in your collection, here is what I created.

If you haven't heard, there is also a colour revamp, lots of new colours and some old favourites returning - as I am saying goodbye to Blooms and Wishes I decided to create with 4 of the retiring core colours - Soft Sky, Pink Pirouette, Perfect Plum, Rose Red and Wild Wasabi.

I stamped the flowers on Watercolour paper, then using an Aqua Painter washed in the Soft Sky background, I stamped the sentiment on Vellum and heat embossed in Silver - I do love the shimmer from heat embossed sentiments. I carried the silver theme through with the Mini Gable Gift box, these are great to pop together for a coordinating gift. The scalloped edge is the "flat" side of the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, a great way to dress up you card with ease.

I hope my creations have brightened you day with the thought of Spring, continue through the hop for more Spring inspiration, you are currently visiting Sue Vine - MissPinksCraftSpot.

Sadly the Blooms and Wishes stamp set is retiring, so if you must have it this may be the last chance purchase, likewise anything Soft Sky, Pink Pirouette, Perfect Plum, Rose Red or Wild Wasabiso don't delay - available while stocks last or til May 31st.

One last item, thank you to everyone that visited last months Hop and commented, and a big congratulations to the winner of the Stamp-a-ratus.... drum roll....
