Sensational Season SOTM blog hop!

Welcome to our March Stamp of the Month blog hop featuring this month's new SOTM - Sensational Season D1454! If you've just joined me from Dawn's blog then you are on the right path!
To create the 8x3.5" card above, I used Wishes - Top Band (p. 100) as inspiration for my design. I used background and texture papers from two different paper packs - Sophia X7131B and Bliss X7132B. My images are stamped with black ink (using just a little bit of the masking technique to make the bunny look like it is standing behind the lettuce in the garden). The flower is made by adhering cotton candy pom-pom ribbon from our new Pink Collection Designer Ribbon Z1384 into a spiral shape onto a cardstock circle base (punched out of cotton candy cardstock with our 1.25" circle punch). The leaf was made with our new 2" scallop circle punch and pear cardstock. All images (on cards above and below) are colored in with markers in the following colors: Bamboo, Blush, Creme Brulee, Desert Sand, and Pear. I also added a lot of sponge distressing with Desert Sand ink and sponge daubers. Remember, you can click on any of my photos to see the images larger and up close.
My 4.5" circle card design above is inspired by Wishes - Attention Getter (p. 46). I hope these creations have inspired you! Now you can continue on the SOTM blog hop and see many other creative ideas for using this stamp set by visiting Tamytha's blog next! Enjoy!!
