Happy Home with Blossom Snow

We’re having a relaxing day at home today.  Part of the two days of Spring Break.  We’ll be watching several episodes of one of our favorite (new to us) shows — Face Off.  We find the way materials are used and overall creativity is very interesting.

Today’s creation converts a card front, that I started some time ago, into a finished card.  The inspiration to complete it came as I drove into the neighborhood yesterday and saw that one of the cherry or plum trees was already dropping it’s blossoms.  There was a halo of pink “snow” under the tree.

I used Happy Home

to create my scene.  The image was inked in Chocolate Chip.

Then, I came in with a sponge dauber and added Blushing Bride ink to the crown of the tree to create a soft, hazy look …as when a tree is in full blossom.

Over the scene is a Soft Sky window frame cut with the Hearth and Home Framelits.

This piece was layered over a piece of Soft Sky that was embossed with the Softly Falling folder.  The bottom half of this layer is a piece of Birthday Bouquet designer paper.  All of the dots in the embossing folder and designer paper compliment each other.

The bottom of the card is accented with a strip of Blushing Bride that has been layered with a piece of Silver Foil paper and wrapped with Silver Metallic Bakers Twine.

To finish the scene,

I dotted my Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write marker around the base of the tree. Then, I squeezed out a little Versamark ink refill and painted it over the Blushing Bride dots.  They were then heat embossed in Clear.

Finally, I took an Aqua Painter and painted on some Pear Pizzazz for the bright Spring grass.  Since I had embossed the Blushing Bride dots, I didn’t have to worry about where I painted as that created an emboss resist — meaning the Pear Pizzazz would not cover them.

That’s it for my simple Spring “thinking of you” card.
