The sun has been shining and there has been a delightful arm breeze.   Yes -  I think it's time for the wonderful Spring weather to being in my neck of the woods!  

For my creation,  I created a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 top-folding card base.   I used a red-orange cardstock for my base layer and selected the designer paper from  the Blazing Poppy Collection.

The flowers were created from theBlazing Poppy Petals Cling Stamp Set and the Blazing Poppy Petals Die.    I added some round styrofoam flour center that I painted with black acrylic paint.   The leaves were from the Classic Leaf Cling Stamp Set and the  Classic Leaf Die.   I added the sentiment "Thankful" from chipboard from iCrafts.  As for my final touch, I aded some special sparkle to the petals with Rajni Chawla's Crystal  Clear!

And now for the Hop... 
You will want to comment on as many as possible and you may be the lucky winner!

Allow to dry.   Using a craft brush, paint the styrofoam center (stigma) with 3D Paint.  purple and green.   allow to dry.   Assemble the petals, stigma and stamen using a hot glue gun.  Sponge the leaves with the green ink and shape with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.   Adhere the the flowers and leaves.   Add additional  green and purple flower centers to  the arrangement.  

Stamp the sentiment from the Singing in the Rain Collection - Raindrop Sentiments using Elderberry Ink on heavy white paper.   Die cut the sentiment and purple mat layer using the nesting Eyelet Circle and Basics Small Dies.  Pop the sentiment up on the purple circle mat using mounting tape.   Add another strip of mounting tape to the sentiment and mount in the center of the card.  

Fussy cut the butterfly from the Butterfly Dreams paper collection.  Attach the two black stamen for the antennas.   Adhere the butterfly above the sentiment using Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.   

Thank you for stopping by and and hope you found this card inspirational and easy instructions!

Hello. I am a Registered nurse and I work to support my crafting addiction. I love all types of paper crafting. I recently discovered Copic markers and just knew I needed to learn more about how to use them. I found Suzannes' wonderful website and decided to sign up for her on-line classes. I am so glad I did. Isn't it fun?
