poppystamps Sylvan Frame, Susanna Blossom and WINNERS!

Pam Sparks Sylvan Susanna

Hi everyone! Here I am with inky fingers, posting a card and the two winners of the NEW Memory Box Stitched Oval Layers Die sets!  YAY!

I used some Hobby Lobby watercolor paper, Distress inks, Wilted Violet and Peacock Feathers.  Brushed on some water, brushed on some color, dried with the heat tool but…don’t try to pick off any black marks!  That’s what happened in the bottom right dark violet area. Silly me, just leave it alone! When you try to remove, it makes it white!  So then, you add more color and the paper pills up, so then, you have a mess and end up darker and remembering again why you should just leave well enough alone!!!  Will I ever learn?! Rolling my eyes at myself!  : )

I decided to post it anyway…running out of daylight (for photos) so no starting over and I wanted to post the winners!

I spritzed some pearl spray into the drops of Distress ink refills but it’s hard to see it in the pictures. boo.  It’s really a nice touch though.  The green leaves are Twisted Citron Distress ink.  There was a time in my life when I would’ve never put these colors together! WOW!  I’ve changed! lol

Die cut the Susanna Blossom, emboss it, leave it in the die, flip it over and ink it with Wilted Violet Distress ink and the ink blending tool. I spritzed it a little with the pearl spray too but be careful cuz it moves easy!  You don’t want too much. (I had to do it twice) lol

The ‘happy spring’ sentiment is from the Springtime Bunnies stamp set. There is also a ‘thinking of you’ in the set and it would work nicely also.  I’ll link you up to everything below.

SO…..DRUMROLL or Cymbals…you pick… haha

THE WINNERS ARE… #38 Linda Pearce and #42 AnnieC!  Congratulations gals! I will email you. I’ll need your snail mail address.  Happy die cutting to you!

Thanks so much everyone for commenting and following my blog! I love coming here and showing you what I’ve been up to!  If you could see my email inbox, you’d know I love seeing what you all are up to too! lol

Have a great rest of the week and weekend!  ttul!

  3. ad to go get my glasses and I still didn’t see your “boo-boo. I think the card is stunning. Spring has arrived here in MO. – I wish but it is a beautiful day Jan 14 and temp is 60!!! We have yet to get any snow but I am ready to start some floral cards for spring.

  4. Beautiful card Pam, and the colors are so pretty. Spring can’t come fast enough for me. Love the way you blended the cool spring colors for your background and the single blossom which reminds me of how I’ve been checking my daffodil bulbs to see if they are sprouting up yet. LOL! Nothing like wishing for spring already! Hee, hee. Lovely art work Pam, you made my day. Thank you! Congrats to the winners as well.

  5. Thank you so much for my win. I’m so thrilled xxxx
    Love the vibrant colours on this card, Pam – reflects how I feel this morning! and all I can see in the bottom right corner is a clever “fall” of the colours to look like the edge of paper is curling up.
    Thanks as always for sharing your lovely work.

  6. I know your not as happy with the outcome because you know how you wanted it to look but I say it turned out fabulous, the darker color grounds the bottom of the card 🙂 Lovely use of the dies and great idea with the pearl spray, another item I forget to use!

  7. Oh, I just bought this frame and it’s so good to see it on your card! Love it in white with the watercolor spring background and flower. Inspiration galore here!

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
