Simple Pleasures


Hello and welcome to the Artistic Outpost March blog hop.  This month the designers are featuring images from the Lovely Day stamp set.  I was so happy to use this set because it is perfect for the spring like mood I am currently in.  The first thing I did was create a background by scoring 2" diamond shaped squares on white CS with my Score-Pal.  Then I stamped the lovely tulip image with Vintage Photo DI in each of the squares and colored them with my Copics.  The designer paper is all digital - the gingham from Raspberry Road and the striped from Pin Petticoat.  I used to Tim Holtz decorative strip dies that I sell in my shop - the Tattered Banners and the Vintage Lace dies - love them both!  The pretty floral button and the burlap twine are also sold in my shop.  The vintage style crepe paper that I so love will be coming to my shop soon in a rainbow of colors.  

That's the scoop on my card.  Now it's time to hop over to Tracy Evan's blog. I know Tracy has been hard at work making something outrageously awesome for this hop.  Here is the blog roll in case you get lost or want to join in.  


Thanks so much for stopping by today.
