New Blooms!

Have you seen the newest release from A Muse? I couldn't wait to play with some of the new blooms. Look at this Modern Poppy!


I also love the Zinnias. There are 2, an open and a solid. For this card I decided to try the "faux cloisonne" technique. The pink behind the flower is actually a page out of a magazine! Since Copics don't play well with metallic embossing powders, I decided to emboss the Open Zinnia in gold and have the pink from the magazine page show through. I chose a section of the dress that had some different shades of pink for interest.



This last card is the Cherry Blossom stamp. I stamped it twice onto a cream 4-bar note and then added a vase punched out of brown Madeira paper. I colored the blossoms with Copics and embellished them with some liquid pearls......so soft and pretty!

Check out the "what's new" section of the A Muse website to see all of the new Bridal & Blooms stamps along with the yummy new Juliette papers and 4-bar note cards.

My kids are on Spring Break this next week so I doubt I'll get much stamping done. We don't really have anything planned but I'm sure we'll find some fun things to do! I am hoping for some sunshine!
