Springtime Hello Greeting Card

Well, it has been a week since I have been able to post. I had hoped to post a bunch of sketch challenges last week, but due to family medical issues I wasn't able to.

Today I am using the Springtime Hello stamp set that is in the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog. When I saw the sentiment, "Hello Spring", and the little bee stamp, I just had to get it. The flower sprig is from the set too.

Springtime Hello, Greeting Card, Mojo Monday, Sunday Stamps, Stamp with Trude, Stampin' Up!, floral

I used the Mojo Monday Sketch challenge
and the Color Challenge from Sunday Stamps.

Technique Tip:
I stamped the flower sprig on vellum so that I could stamp front and back. That helps keep the flower from looking so 'cookie cutter'.

  1. Lovely card, Trude! I love your tip about stamping on both sides of the vellum--you've created a beautiful spring picture with this technique. Your double tied bow and brown accent trim this card nicely. Thanks for playing along with us at Sunday Stamps this fortnight--please join us again soon!
