First of all, business: I realized I still had the dreaded snowflake background on my blog so I changed it to a spring design. The flowers are a lot like some stamps that Stampin' Up has and I love the bright colors. I'm so excited to see spring come this year after that long, cold, snowy winter!
I managed to get a great picture of this tree budding out when I went to get the mail Wednesday. Rain was in the forcast but we got a gift of a beautiful day!
I love the Cottage Wall Designer Series paper for Spring layouts but I was afraid some of the ladies wouldn't be "into" purple so I made some of the kits with white backgrounds instead. I didn't put the butterflies on the second set and changed the Orchard Opulence background stamping to Old Olive but everything is pretty much the same on both layouts. I tried to take a picture yesterday when it was sunny but my camera was dead so I had to recharge it. Today is rainy so I couldn't get as good a picture.
How about these flowers? Guess what Stampin' Up punch I used to make them. I did the flower two different directions so the ladies could decide which way they liked best. I like them both but judging by the way I did them on the second layout I guess I like the pointy end out the best! I used a sponge dauber to add ink to the edges of the flower petals (and the letters in the title). I like the softer look this gives than the direct to paper method I usually use. You have more control with the sponge daubers too.
