Simple Stems Mix

It’s here!  The new Spring Catalog is out today!  And there are so many fun, pretty things from which to choose.

I made a card with the Simple Stems stamp set for today.  I am always a sucker for floral sets, and this card has a coordinating framelits set that you may already have in your collection — the Secret Garden framelits dies.  I love it when you can use framelits with more than one stamp set!  Of course, I picked one of the flowers in the stamp set that doesn’t have a framelit, so I hand cut it three times.

I ended up using a mix of stamps for this card.  The flowers are from Simple Stems, but I also pulled out my Gorgeous Grunge set, Another Thank You (a photopolymer set), and I snuck in one of the cute banners from an upcoming Sale-a-Bration set called Banner Blast (it has a coordinating punch too).  I had to force myself to stop there.  🙂

It has been so fun to use Spring-like colors this week instead of Christmas colors.  It may still be winter, but I am enjoying using these colors.

Enjoy your Friday!  Thanks for stopping by!
