Good morning! Today I have a sweet little stamp set--or two--to share with you, JustRite's Choose Joy and the A-2 Garden View Cling Background. (I used a sentiment from Choose Joy on yesterday's Lilacs card as well.)
I had to do a little finagling to make an A-2 background stamp fill a 5-1/4" square card background! First I stamped the background image in the center of my 5-1/4" square piece of cardstock. Next I lightly marked pencil lines on the edges of the cardstock where the stamped images stopped; I then re-inked the stamp (which was lying face up), and carefully laid my cardstock on the stamp using those pencilled lines for placement so that I could stamp the parts that I hadn't been able to stamp originally.
Those little flowers are die-cut with one of my older Spellbinders dies, Cherry Blossoms. I had a scrap of cardstock on which I had created a pink/melon/orange watercolored background with Distress inks, and I used that to cut little flowers from, adding Stickles for the centers.
A full supply list is below, and then a list of blogs at which you can see some fabulous Choose Joy projects! Thank you for visiting,
