GSF Stampers Choice Blog Hop

Welcome to the GSF February Blog Hop and this month we have been given the wonderful freedom of Stamper's Choice for our theme. This means that you will see a wide variety of projects featuring projects created with projects from any of the current catalogs, to help inspire you. 
I decided to combine something new from the Occasions Catalog with the Fable Friends stamp set (item #148670) and the beautiful Gingham Gala 6"x6" Designer Series Paper Pack (item #148554), which has been extremely popular. In addition, I have added some old favorites including the Daisy Delight stamp set (item #143669) and the coordinating Daisy Punch (item #143713) from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog and one of my favorite colors, Lemon Lime Twist.

This cute little bunny has been stamped using Stazon Jet Black ink so that I could color him with Watercolor Pencils and a blender pen. I love the softness that this coloring technique gives to the bunny. 

The card base has been created with Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and I added a layer of Whisper White cardstock and attached the 2"x5 1/4" piece of designer series paper to it. I covered the seam with a piece of Whisper White 3/8" Metallic Edge ribbon (item #144213) to add a little sparkle to the card design. 
To create the layers for the focal image, I used the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies (item #148551). I love the detail that these dies create around the edges of the rectangles. 

The daisy was created by stamping the daisy image from the Daisy Delight stamp set twice onto Whisper White cardstock with Lemon Lime Twist Classic ink. I then punched them both out using the Daisy Punch and layered them on top of each other, offsetting them to create a fuller looking flower. I punched out a 3/4" circle from Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and embossed it with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (item #143706). For a touch of shimmer, I added Clear Wink of Stella to the Daisy petals and the center. I attached the flower to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
This card design is perfect for a Spring theme card and I deliberately decided to not add a sentiment to the card front, so that it can be used for a variety of occasions. The sentiments in the Fable Friends stamp set provide options for Easter, Spring and as a baby card. The Daisy Delight stamp set has sentiments that are perfect for thank you cards. 

The variety of beautiful colors in the Gingham Gala 6"x6" Designer Series Paper Pack provides wonderful options for creating pretty cards for Spring and Summer. It is one of my favorite designer series paper packs and I urge you to order it soon as it has been very popular and may possibly sell out. Remember that during Sale-a-bration, you can earn Free exclusive products with a qualifying order.
