Hi Stamping Friends!
Many times, we're so busy playing with the stamps and thinlits from the big product suites in the catalog that it's easy to overlook some of the individual stamp sets in the book. There are lots of adorable stamp sets that are perfect for coloring and one that has recently caught my eye is the Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts set. Today, I'm sharing two delightful cards created with this pretty springtime set!
"Last Thursdays" Re-Scheduled For March 1—I'm moving my local "Last Thursdays" monthly card class to next week: Thursday, March 1, 6:30pm. As always, we'll create 4 cards for $15 or the class is FREE when you place a minimum order at the event. I'll show card samples when they are ready. Register Here if you'd like to attend.

Friendships Blossom In The Heart Card
Spring Blossoms—Karen stamped the Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts card and flower stand images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto a 5" x 4" Whisper White cardstock layer. There is a lot of detailed coloring on this card, and Karen chose to do hers with Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen. It's a great choice for controlling the color in small, detailed areas.
Awesome Accents—She added some Wink of Stella glimmer to the canopy of the cart and the flower stand, then topped the flowers with Rhinestone Jewels for some extra sparkle.
Poppin' Blooms Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts Card
Blended Blooms—Betsy stamped the Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts flower cart in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a 3" x 3-1/2" piece of Very Vanilla. It looks like she colored her image with Stampin' Blends Markers. The image is done in two layers: the first layer has flowers in Daffodil Delight and Old Olive, the cart in Crumb Cake & Pumpkin Pie and the shadow in Smoky Slate.
Popped Up Pretties—Betsy stamped the image a second time on Very Vanilla scrap and colored in the cart canopy in Pumpkin Pie and Pool Party, fussy-cutting it with super-sharp Paper Snips and popping it up with Dimensionals. She also colored in all the flowers with Calypso Coral and Pool Party (or maybe the light Bermuda Bay). She cut out those tiny flowers and popped them up with Mini Dimensionals to fill in the flowers to overflowing! She topped each of the flowers with some Wink of Stella Shimmer, too! Wow! What detail!
