Tulip Quartet

Hello my artsy friends, and welcome back to My Raspberry Room. If this is your first visit, I hope you enjoy my creations and will check in again soon. If you've visited before, thanks for coming back.
Today I have four cards all basically the same in different colors. Which is your fave?
The main image is from Flourishes "April Showers" set, all colored up with Copics. Three of the four are stamped on the Spellbinder's "scalloped circles" then dry embossed with SU's  "designer frames" folder. The fourth is stamped on Spellbinder's "lacey circles". Cardstock and sentiments are all from SU. Ribbon is all from my stash (sorry I don't know the brands). The tiny butterflies are from a retired SU set called "Beyond the Basics" And last but not least the "Framed Tulips" embossing folder and self adhesive pearls are from SU. Don't they just add a nice touch to this cute little bucket of tulips?
Well it's time to decide, more ink or catch some Zzzzz's. I think Zzzz's win tonight.
Thanks for stopping by. Til next time....

Daffodil on Daffodil

Hello blog friends. Today I have another Easter/spring card. The lovely daffodil image is from Flourishe's "Signs of Spring" set. The main image was stamped and masked to add the Flourishe's "Clouds" background. It's difficult to see in the pic (my photography skills are not the best), but the center of the flower is stamped a 2nd time and added to a lightweight chipboard. Makes it "pop" off the card. The beautiful scrolled sentiment is from Stampin' Up's Easter Blossoms set. This was all stamped and colored with Prisma Pencils and Gamsol on whisper white CS, then adhered to SU's daffodil delight CS (how appropriate is that?) The border punch is MS "arch lattice". Finishing touch, SU's self adhesive pearls.
As always, thanks for stopping by.
Til next time, Live Laugh & Love

Hello Hyacinths

Hello all. I hope you're a having wonderful day. Well now that Valentine's Day is over, and February is done (not my favorite month). How about an Easter card or two? Let's bring on spring. I love this image from Flourishes set called "Hello Hyacinth" and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up's "Delightful Dozen" set. Both the card base and the stamped image were cut with Spellbinders "labels eight". Both cards were colored with Copic markers.
Thanks for stopping by. Til next time.........
