Bright and Beautiful

Hello Stampers and thanks for stopping by today!

If you're at work this stormy Monday, I hope today's post will inspire you to stamp something bright and beautiful, once you get home from work, to counteract today's gray and gloomy weather.  If you're not at work, you don't have to wait... just get out the brightest colors you own right now, along with some flowery stamps and stamp up your own springtime.  Seriously, stampers, we've got a LOT of cold, wet weather to get through before anything remotely resembling spring arrives.  So why not use this rainy weather to good advantage and get ready for all the springtime occasions that are looming on the calendar, like Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, graduations, weddings, new babies, and of course birthdays?? We always need birthday cards.

Here's my contribution toward making today brighter and more beautiful...

We made this card at Susan K's party today.  I love the color combination and just looking at this card brings a smile to my face.  I hope it works that way for you too!

I used the Flower Shop stamp set on page 94 of the annual catalog and stamped the flowers in Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight.  Then I stamped the smaller flowers (from the Petite Petals stamp set on page 33 of the Occasions catalog) in the same colors on a scrap of Whisper White and punched them out with the matching Petite Petals Punch (also on page 33 of the Occasions catalog).  I popped the smaller flowers up on dimensionals and then added a pearl in the center of each.  The sentiment is from the great new set Simply Celebrate on page 30 of the Occasions catalog.  This is a quick, easy, and fun card to create and is a definite mood-lifter.  I think it would also be great stamped in Melon Mambo and Tangerine Tango-- both bright, hot colors that would add warmth and cheer to a day like today.

I hope you feel inspired to go stamp something pretty!
Please come back on Wednesday for another Classic Card.
Hugs to all,
