ICS Blog Hop Spring is in the Air

ICS Blog Hop - Spring is in the Air

 Yes, spring is in the air.  Love the cherry blossom trees blooming this time of year.  Our hop for this month is "Spring is in the Air".  I have chosen a stamp set out of the 2015 Occasions Catalog.  If you get this stamp set you will definitely want the Painted Blooms Designer series paper to go with it or to use by itself.

Stamps:  Painted Petals
Ink:  Blackberry Bliss, Pear Pizzazz
Paper:  Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss
Accessories:  Top Note bigshot die, Spring Flowers TIEF, dimensionals, Blackberry Bliss 3/8" stitched satin ribbon, sponge daubers.

After I ran the white through the Spring Flowers TIEF, I sponged some Blackberry Bliss and Pear Pizzazz on the embossed image.

I saw a similar card made as a 6x6 from Debbie at

Hop on over the Terri's blog and see the beautiful project she made.
