March Journey Blog Hop Spring Bloom

"Welcome to the March Journey Blog Hop!  I'm so happy you're hoppin' along!  If you arrived here from Rachael Shedeed  blog, you're on the right track.  If not, that's ok too!  Just continue the hop and you'll come full circle!"  

To me Spring Blooms is all about flowers:

I chose to make a card, My card measures 4 1/4 by 5 1/2

I layered the card with Lemon Grass card stock which I spray with Citrus Coolers Color Splash to give it some texture.

I then layered it again with Whip Cream card stock, I tried Richards Tuesday tip with modeling paste. I mixed the modeling paste  with Blue Lagoon Color Splash. Then I used the  Starburst Stencil to get that beautiful background. I have to admit I love the way it came out.

I used FSJ  Tattered Bloom Stamp Set, all the flowers are stamped with Pineapple smoothie and Bubble Gum.  I used our Tattered Bloom Die Templates, to cut out flowers.

Sentiment used for this card is one of my favorites, Life is Beautiful, which is one of 4 stamps from Beautiful Ride stamp set.

"Thanks for hopping to my blog. Please head over to Ruth Cooper blog to see what he/she has to share."

Make it a Great Day!


  1. Pretty, Pretty! My favorite flowers in the FSJ collection are the Tattered flowers. I love that they have that pointy little tip on the end of each petal. Your card is fun and features it well against the stenciled background. Thanks for playing in the hop this month! :) Kerry #401

  2. Love the Layers, I honestly thought the blue background was a printed paper.. Amazing job! Heather #225
