The Greetery: Hello Beautiful

Hi there! I have a card up on The Greetery Blog today for the TGIF feature and I wanted to share it here on my blog as well.  

As winter draws to an end here, my thoughts have totally turned towards warmer days and spring flowers, and so I was inspired to bring out some pretty floral stamps to play with. I love the Fleur Impressions stamp set from The Greetery and had not had a chance to use that set yet, so was exited to play with it for this card. I also paired it up with a cute little bird from The Robin & Wren set, and created a frame to set it all off with the Nordic Frames dies.

For the background, I blended some purple and blue distress inks, then splattered some of those same colors along with some white acrylic paint.  

To create the frame, I used the two smaller size frames from the Nordic Frame dies and layered the smaller one inside the larger of the two and cut them out together. I adhered this to my blended panel with foam tape. I stamped all of the pretty flowers from the Fleur Impressions stamp set, and little bird  from the Robin & Wren stamp set, in different shades of purples and blues. I then cut them out with the coordinating dies, and added them around the frame with foam tape. 

For the sentiment, I used the Hello from the Signed and Sealed Stamp set, and Beautiful from the Sketchbook Roses stamp set. I cut these out with the coordinating dies and added them along the frame with foam tape.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today and I hope it inspires you to do some spring crafting!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
