Yeah I found time to stamp! And here is what I made.
Wow this card is bright! When I first saw this paper I wasn't sure what to do with it - for that very reason - the brightness. When I saw the sketch at i(heart)2 stamp's Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT) I honestly had no idea what to do with the circle.
I happened to have a piece of this Shades of Spring designer paper on my work area and zeroed right in on that big flower! I thought it would be fun to make the huge flower the focal point of my card. So I used the Clear Circle die and my Big Shot and cut the circle from the designer paper. It is so easy to center the design in the circle die because it is clear!
Then I matted my designer paper with cardstock cut with the Circle Scissors Plus. This was layered onto a piece of cardstock that was run through the Big Shot using the Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder. I used the Always stamp set to stamp the center of the flower and the saying at the bottom.
I know the sketch calls for something in the upper right segment of the card but it just wasn't working for me so I moved it to the bottom left and liked it much better! The Chocolate Chip brads from the Occasions Mini are my accents. Don't forget, they are only available to the end of March!
