It snowed all day. Where I live this is pretty unusual and stranger yet it is sticking! There's maybe 3" on the ground. In other words it was a perfect day to stay in and play in my craft room. I decided I needed to pull out a stamp set that I have not played with yet and make some samples. I recently ordered the Basket Bunch Bundle so it was pulled out to get inky.
I knew I wanted to play along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge when I saw their sketch.
I used the watercolor pencils in Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive and an Aqua Painter to color the flowers. It was relaxing watching the snow fall while coloring spring flowers. I couldn't find the right sentiment until I looked in my Paper Pumpkin stamps. It was a toss up between one that said "Happy Spring" and the one I chose, "hello sunshine".
I added a little glitter to the centers of the flowers and thought about adding some ribbon but decided I liked the clean and simple look of the card.
There are 29 stamps in the Basket Bunch stamp set and 22 dies in the Basket Builder Framelit set. So many possibilities and I will be sharing lots more ideas with the set. They say it is going to keep on snowing through the night and on Monday too. Looks like another snowy day in the stamp room!
