Happy Tuesday dear friends, today we are introducing our guest designer Sharon with a lovely card! We are so honored to have her here with us today. Here’s Sharon….

Hello, Sharon here with my 1st guest designer spot and today I am using the gorgeous Cherry Blossom Stamp set on 2 cards. I have also used papers and ribbon from the store

My first card focuses on the main image from the set – the gorgeous cherry blossoms

I first matted my white card base with green and white card I used design paper from the Spring Lilacs Pad wrapping lilac vellum and Crochet Tape around the lower before adhering to the card base.

I stamped the flowers onto lilac vellum using embossing ink and heat embossed with white powder.

I then colored the flowers using pencil to deepen the purple coloring. I stamped 2 of the image and cut them out I fussy cut the larger flower from the second spray, shaped this and adhered it to the top of the others lifting the petals to give dimension.

I then stamped a sentiment from the Cherry Blossom stamp set on to the strip of vellum. A few tonal pearls just balanced the card

 

My second card was made from the same Spring Lilacs papers and Cherry Blossom Stamp set

I made my main focus the sentiment on this card

After die cutting one of the stunning Spring Lilac papers I matted cream card base with purple card and the paper – wrapping Crochet tape around the center.

I then stamped my sentiment onto the same cream card as my base and using Fancy Labels 3 die set I cut the larger shape from purple card and my sentiment with the circle die

I added a few pearl accents and a simple to make card turned into an elegant design.
