Hello Spring Flowering Dogwood Card for Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop
Hello, Friends! Welcome to the Heartfelt Creations February Alumni Hop! You should have arrived here from Vicki’s lovely blog. I think we are all dreaming about spring right now, and this Hello Spring Flowering Dogwood Card is filled with delicate blossoms, cheeky little birdies and soft, springtime colors.
Dogwoods are my favorite spring flowers. Here in the south, you can still find old neighborhoods where both sides of the street are lined with dogwood trees. When they burst into bloom in the spring the beauty takes your breath away. So when the Flowering Dogwood collection was released earlier this month, I ordered the stamps, matching dies and paper collection the very first day! I’m so glad I did!
These flowers are so easy to shape! First, I stamped them onto white cardstock using Archival Willow ink. Next, I die cut them with the matching die. Then, I sponged the center and petal edges with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. The centers are filled with Minnie Pearls and Tutu Pink Prills. The pretty Eyelet Oval Die provides a delicate layered background.
I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for the cheeky little birdies from the Birds and Blooms collection. After stamping, fussy cutting and sponging them with ink, I tucked the Fluffy Birdies Cling Stamp image in among the gorgeous dogwoods, then surrounded them with miniature dogwoods.
