Did you recognize the flow of these flowers? Well, you should! This gorgeous stamp set is called Spring Blossoms and the final set in our Blossoms Collection, this beautiful array of spring blossoms illustrated by Marcella Hawley features a bouquet, corner stamps, and pieces to create your own borders or frames. Add in four of all occasion sentiments and you have the perfect set to create cards for every day correspondence.

Set measures 4 by 6" and is the perfect companion to sister sets Happily Ever After and Letters in Blossom. If you like this set, you might also like our Summer Blossoms set featuring summer florals, our Autumn Blossoms set featuring Autumn florals, our our set Winter Blossoms with gorgeous late winter/early spring blooms.

Here is the card I made with Spring Blossoms :)

I stamped the large bouquet image a few times with Memento Sweet Plum for the entire background panel. Then it was sponged with Memento Pistachio and Bahama Blue using the blending tool. I added the border that was created with designer paper and the beautiful lace trim with rhinestones on the background. The focal part of the card was created with the one of the corner images and sentiments. The images were colored with Copic markers. The sentiment mat and the layer mat was die cut with Perfectly Pierced Classic Hourglass die set. After sponging some blue colors on the sentiment mat and adhering on the corner images, The card is completed!


The rest of supplies:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Summer SkyClassic White carstock, CME paper -Emerald Coast, Pistachio, designer paper
