2020 Kre8tors April Blog Hop Spring

It's time to celebrate Spring with the 2020 Kre8tors April Blog Hop. You will be visiting with Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world as we share our ideas for Spring. I hope that our ideas will help inspire you to create your own Spring projects. 
 My card design today features the beautiful Ornate Style stamp set (item #152572) from the Ornate Garden Suite Early Release. I paired it with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Floral (item #152725) to create this pretty floral Spring card. 
 For my card design, I started with Highland Heather cardstock for my card base and I added a layer of Gorgeous Grape cardstock that I embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder using Gorgeous Grape Classic ink to create a two tone embossed background. 
The floral image from the Ornate Style stamp set was stamped twice with Versamark ink onto a layer of Whisper White cardstock that I die cut using one of the scalloped rectangle dies from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies (item #151690). I stamped one half of the image along the bottom and the other half across the top and heat embossed them with Silver Embossing Powder. I colored the floral images with a variety of Stampin' Blends Markers. 

The sentiment for this card is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set (item #151331) and I heat embossed the image using Silver Embossing Powder onto a scrap of Thick Whisper White cardstock. I die cut the sentiment using one of the small ovals from the Layering Ovals Dies (item #141706) and attached it to the floral card front using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. 
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today. I hope that my Spring card design helps inspire you to explore the many possibilities for creating your own Spring projects.
