Free for All Friday!

Just a quick note to let you all know there is plenty of eye candy out in blogland today! It's what the Flourishes gals call Free-for-All Friday... when we take our favorite set from Release Week and show off another creation using it!

So, moving on to my creation!I have to say, when I picked up the Spring is Sprung set, I gasped at how darling those little bunnies were! I stamped them on Flourishes Classic White Card Stock using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored them up using Copic markers -- I used the Spring Greens, Sweet Pea, BG0000, Cool Neutrals and Violet collections grouped by Flourishes.

After I colored it up, I did mat it using some of the items in Flourishes' most recent 1,2,3 Create Kit (I hear there will be a new kit next Monday... WOO HOO! The last one sold out in 24 hours!)The paper is part of the Prima Sparkling Spring collection. I added a little bloomer (also from the sold out kit), and matted it all up using a Spellbinders Classic Oval SM  and a portion of a Labels Ten Nestabilities die that I cut out using my Grand Calibur die cut machine. Emboss and sand the edges to reveal the paper's white core, add a few pearls, some stitching and you're almost done! I also added a Happy Spring sentiment from the set by stamping it on two pennants cut and embossed thanks to Spellbinders' Nested Lacey Pennants dies.

Here's a close up to show that I did add some Stickles Diamond Glitter Glue for some extra razzle dazzle!


The gals on the Flourishes DT decided to take their favorite set from last week's release and.... they've been at it again in their stamp spaces! So, be sure to hop on over and pay them a visit to see their latest batch of creativity!!
