Flowering Crabapple Branches

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great week so far. I'm here to share a Spring inspired card.

 The weather here was quite unusual this year. We had few days with warm temperature immediately followed by very cold days in April. Now, it's starting to get warmer. Many trees bloomed in March/April and it was a beautiful sight. I was particularly amazed to see this tree (I think it is crabapple tree, not sure though. If you know, please let me know.) which had pink buds and white flowers.


As soon as I saw this, I was reminded of Power Poppy by Marcella's Happy Crabapple Stamp Set/ Flowering Branches Digital Stamp Set and bought the digi stamp immediately. The advantage of using digis is that it can be used instantly after buying and you can zoom in or zoom out all you want. I zoomed in to get a nice view of the beautiful flowers, printed it on cardstock and colored it with Crayola pencils with no-line technique. I stamped the sentiment from Our Dailly Bread Designs - Blossom stamp set. I cut out a frame with brown card stock and made this into a shaker card with acetate window. I used Inspired By Stamping - Strawberry Slush sequin mix and few colors from my stash.

  4. Your card is so pretty Berina and I can see immediately where your inspiration came from. Our weather has been much the same, a few nice days before Easter and ever since cloudy and really cold.
