The trees are just starting to blossom and the whole landscape is turning my favorite color
spring green!
So, I thought it fitting to showcase the stamp set
this week.
Here I stamped the large bloom with Black Archival Ink and then colored it with our 
The small bloom was simply stamped in Glacier.
The papers are from the
and I used sketch #23  from
Make It From Your Heart, vol. 2.
I'll have more "Wavy Bloom" cards to share this week.

My Thoughts Are With You

When I saw this sketch at
I knew I wanted to create with it.
I was also inspired by Karan's color scheme in the DT reveal.
Those colors are so serene and perfect for a sympathy card which is what I created.

I used the following CTMH supplies:
Paper Bird Stamp Set (Hostess only set)
Ribbon, button, and twine are retired products from my stash.

This hostess stamp set is one of my all time faves.

Scrappy Saturday!

Did you know NSD is only 2 weeks away?
I'm having Open Studio hours at my bungalow.
If you are local and want to come and play, please message me to reserve your spot.
I will be hosting two mini-workshops,
one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
See the flyer above for details.
In the morning session we will use the Wavy Blooms flower set to create some beautiful blooms.
This stamp set is featured in the CTMH artwork in this mini-album.

I've been having fun playing with this stamp set lately.
I'll share some of my personal projects next week.
In the afternoon mini-workshop I will demonstrate how to create our 3D rolled flowers.
You get to practice too!
Using our Quilling Tool and Liquid Glass makes it so much easier!
I hope you can join me for some scrappy fun on May 2!
