CDS Sneak Peek - Bless my Bloomers

Kim Teasdale has done it again!!! She's created another fantastic set for Clear Dollar Stamps' April 1st release with "Bless My Bloomers". How cheeky is the name of the set? If it gives you any indication it's a cute gardening set with a side of sassy! Kim and I have been BFF's for years and my mom is an avid gardener (from now until October if you want to talk to my mom you'll find her outside in her garden (they have the nicest one on their street). I'm honored that my mom was part of the inspiration for this set. For my first card above, I was truly inspired by the My Mind's Eye DP. As soon as I saw the DP, I knew exactly what I'd be using for this card. I love how well the color combo came together and how cheery the card is. Truly makes it feels like Spring. The layout for this card was inspired by this Spring card by Donna Wardle (She has the most amazing layouts with her cards).
What mom doesn't like flowers??? Okay.... I know they love real flowers but when I showed this to my mom she loved it (I couldn't give it to her right away though because I hadn't taken a picture yet). I wanted to do something 3D and I love how this turned out. I've made these flowers on some cards in the past and I knew they'd be fun for this project. For the stems I've used some wooden skewers that I have wrapped in floral tape. The felt butterfly I found at a local dollar store if you can believe it.

Check out what the girls have done today (see sidebar).

Aw Angela, I just love the colors of the flowers and how you used dew drops for the centers. Love that. Your 3-D project is over the top. That butterfly is so cute and the perfect touch. (Love the dollar store). I love these flowers and they work so nice in the pail for a beautiful centerpiece.
