Here is the card I made for the hop.  I just love the variety of vases and flowers that this new stamp offers. They are so sweet, and there is also a matching set that has smaller images – such a fabulous idea!!

I stamped the flowers using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored the flowers using Copic markers. I stamped the vase on another piece of paper using Barn Door Distress Ink, cut it out and popped it off the card.  There are so many different vases and flowers to choose from it was hard to decide what to use.Image is from CLR046 Vases Clear Set,  Sentiment is from CLR046 Vases Clear Set

Good Morning!!  Ok gals – I have finished making the cards for a class or for kits.  I have a perfect little spot picked out to have the class.  I have to figure out a few more details – so more to come on that soon.  I would like to have this class the end of this month or very early in May – in time for Mother’s Day.
For these cards I used the very sweet Pion Designs paper line called “A Day in May”.  How perfect is that for Mother’s Day.  These papers are very soft and pretty.  You have to see them to appreciate how beautiful they are.

At first I was going going to do 6 cards for this class, but after thinking about it I decided to do only 4 – as I didn’t want to stress anyone out with too much to do in one sitting.  You won’t be disappointed with these cards – they are stunning!!
On another note – the design team I am on is having a blog hop that starts tomorrow.  This will be my very first blog hop that I am doing – so bear with me as I get all these details down.  It’s taking some time to absorb all the new details of being part of a design team.  But I’m having a blast!!
