A Blossom for Thursday

I thought I would take a few minutes and post another {ippity} card that I completed yesterday.

This was a really easy one to make and a lot of fun. I like lots of layers and I love sketches. For my sketch I used one of the latest ones published at Splitcoast Stampers. This one is SC389. Beautiful sketch and I added all the layers.

The blossom stamp is from an {ippity} set “Now & Always.” This is a very popular set and I cannot keep it in stock. In fact my {ippity} Sales Blog shows that I have it in stock, but don’t believe it. It just sold, so I have to order some more. I am not complaining. I LOVE the sales! If you are not into making your own cards, this Blossom greeting card is now on my site, AJ’s Designs.

On to my project…I first stamped the blossom three times on Cryogen cardstock. Then colored the blossom with Copic markers and cut out each section. I did the layering so I could get the 3D affect. Love dimension!

My cardstock is from Stampin’ Up! in Cherry Cobbler (a favorite of mine) and True Thyme. The designer paper is from BasicGrey’s Sugared collection. The Fanciful Flourish is a favorite die from Cheery Lynn Designs.

I am entering Blossom greeting card in the following challenges:
The Crafter’s Café – Embellies with a Twist, Layers
Splitcoast Stampers – Sketch Challenge 389
