CCM Saturday Blog Hop - Spring is Here

Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is SPRING! I love this time of year, though I could do without the strong storms....yikes! Everything is busting out in bloom around here, and the gorgeous Dainty Delight stamp set was the perfect stamp set for showing the delicate beauty of Spring blossoms. 

I used StazOn Saddle Brown stamped off once for the flowers and greenery because I wanted a light outline that I could watercolor using muted shades of all the 2021-2023 In Colors. I'm so sad that these are retiring soon! I loved ALL the colors for the first time in a long time.

I thought I'd try a little shabby chic look for this card, so after stamping and watercoloring on the Shimmery White, I ran it through the SCEM (Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine) with the Timeworn Type folder, then distressed the edges. Some Brushed Brass Butterflies added a nice touch, even if I haven't seen any real ones yet!

That's all for today - see you next Saturday! Up next is Libby Fens at Libby Stamps. Or click the "back" button to go back to Lori at Loritamarie Crafts.
