Spring Flowering Tree

While the ground here in Maryland is finally covered in white, my creative mojo is all abloom!  Last March I got my issue of CardMaker magazine and fell in love with the card on the front cover. You can see it here: CardMaker March 2011 I’d never done anything with flower soft products but I so loved that card.  So I ordered those and the glue and then set about finding a tree that I liked.  The search proved fruitless until I was at Hobby Lobby the other day with my gal pal Kathy. 


The stamp is made by Penny Black and I see SO many potential cards being made with it.  Of course the first one just had to be the one using the flower soft stuff!


Since this is my first time working with the flower soft I had no idea how much glue to fluff ratio.  While assembling the card the fluff was falling like real cherry blossoms lol, so it’s not as ‘thick’ as I’d like it to be.  It is however, I think pretty!  The papers and ribbon are from TAC’s More Mimi collection, I love the colors so much. The stamp is from a TAC set Basic Birds I think was the name.  

I’m off now to do a bit more creating, I love weekends where I can spend most of my time freely in my studio!


Thank you so much for taking the time to say hello! Have a great day!
