If you are here for my raspberry square recipe from the project found HERE, just keep on reading. It is at the end of today's post.
I found a moment today to finish a card that I had partially made last week. It uses the stamp set Nature Walk which can be found in the new, upcoming Occasions Mini. It is a beautiful set and has designer paper to match so I am in my glory!
This set comes with a stamp of 5 eggs in a row and seriously that stamp is what drew me in. Ok, the bird did too.....I am such a sucker for birds! But I do love that egg stamp and decided to use it to make the background for my card. To do this, I just used my stamp-a-ma-jig and stamped the eggs over and over.
For the focal image, I first stamped the bird, then masked it, and stamped the foliage - super easy! The little strip of designer paper at the bottom is from the matching designer paper called Botanical Gazette. Did I say how awesome this paper and stamp set are?! They are!
Stamps: Nature Walk (Occasions Mini)
Paper: Marina Mist, Early Espresso, Naturals Ivory, Botanical Gazette designer paper (Occasions Mini)
Ink: Early Espresso, Old Olive, Marina Mist
Accessories: Marina Mist Satin Ribbon, Early Espresso buttons, Linen Thread, Color Spritzer Tool
And now for my raspberry square recipe which really isn't a recipe at all.
I used to make them from scratch until I discovered these. They taste just like homemade but are so much easier!
Oh and one more thing! Stampin Addicts is having an Occasions Mini Blog Hop, December 31 - January 2nd and I will be one of the participants! I think just about everything in the fabulous new Mini catalog will be showcased. How cool will that be?! So stay tuned for more about that. In the meantime.....
