Fresh Springtime Greetings – by Esther Asbury

(Current US Shipping Special – $3.95 – $5.95)

Good morning! We are here once again with a bright and fresh card, today from Esther. WOW, but do these florals do a spirit good during this long cold snap. Esther created her floral with Tim Holtz dies and used a fun sentiment from our Typewritten Series.

This is so fresh and crisp and full of life and fun – I LOVE it!

Esther used Brushstroke Flowers #1 to cut her florals, and in her own words, here’s how the magic happened:

“I die cut all the pieces using Canson Mix Media Paper, and painted them with watercolor paints. After they were assembled, I spot stamped text using one of the stamps from Fruit of the Spirit,” and finished them off with some white paint splatters.”

I am absolutely enamored with these florals. The bit of scripty text on the petals adds SO MUCH!

Here’s a closer look – lovely!

The sentiment from Typewritten Year Round Greetings was cut with our Fishtail Sentiment Banners.

Love the black banner against the bright flowers.

That bit of black from the stamped text and the sentiment add some grounding allowing those flowers to really POP!

Thanks so much, Esther, for this lovely springtime card.

I think we all need a bit of springtime in our lives about now!

Esther creativily used one stamp from this set to spot stamp her painted florals with scripty text. I believe she used the stamp at the very bottom of the set.
