So Very Blessed


It's all about Spring for today's Inspired Stamps project.  I think of Spring as sunny days, flowers blooming, fresh colours and a new beginning.  There's such cheerfulness that this season brings.


When I set out to make this card, I had two stamp sets in mind that I wanted to use - i.e. the 1.5" Circle Greetings set as the focal image and the lace doily from Lovely Lace.  After stamping and cutting out the Circle Greeting and Lace Doily,  a shaped card came to mind.  I added two smaller die-cuts (cut from blue and orange patterned papers using Spellbinders dies) to layer the Circle Greeting and a large doily (green cardstock using Cheery Lynn Designs-English Tea Party Doily) just behind the stamped Doily.  Then I adhered two shaped die-cuts (using Spellbinders Big Scalloped Circle die) together to make the card base and adhere it to the back of the card front.

Here's another look at the card:


I hope you like the idea.  For more inspiration, please visit the rest of the Design Team's blogs and the Inspired Stamps' blog.

Thanks for visiting me today.  Have a blessed day!
