Waltzingmouse Blog Hop!



I'm so excited to be taking part in the first Waltzingmouse Blog Hop! If you would like to start at the beginning go to the official Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog .

Last week I received my order of Faux Fun and Spring Baskets, so I decided to use both on my card!



I stamped the beautiful border image in Versamark and heat embossed it with Clear detail embossing powder, on Kraft cardstock.

For the main image, I stamped the basket (using the tips from Claire!), and then stamped the flowers again on a separate piece of cardstock. I colored each piece and cut out one to layer on top of the main image. The details in this stamp set are amazing!

Your next stop is Kate W at the Sporadic Stamper . Thanks for stopping by to look!

Daffodils definitely signify Spring to all of us around the world, don't they. We won't be seeing any around these parts for another few months yet....still got to get to Autumn and Winter.
