April 18th and it's still snowing in Michigan. Hope it's warmer in your neck of the woods! Since it's still so cold and dreary, I needed to make a springy card and used two of my favorite stamps to do it:  Incrediball Canning Jar and Love and Laughter Floral. I tweaked it up just a little by doing a little masking.

First step was to make the card base. I took white cardstock and stamped the jar using grey ink. I placed a sticky note across the top of the jar and stamped the floral image in green. Using colored pencils I colored in both images and extended the stems to the bottom of the jar. The sentiment was stamped and the panel trimmed and attached to the card base.

For the flowers, I simply placed dots of Nuvo glue where there were buds on the stamped image and added Flower Soft petals. I love the dimension!

Here are the stamps set used:

Note: The flower is attached to the sentiment. I cut mine apart for more versatility. You could also use a masking technique if you don't like doing surgery on your stamps!
