I love shopping at Joan's Gardens. She has such a great variety of products. Have you seen all the beautiful new LaBlanche stamps Joan now carries. They are all so beautiful I had a hard time making a decision on which ones to order. The name of this stamp is "Blossom Tree With Butterfly".
My card is 5.5 inches square. I cut a 6 inch square of white card stock and used the new Martha Stewart "Double Arches" punch set to create the pretty border. I love this punch. The design was stamped and colored using reinkers and "Cut-n-Dry" Pen Nibs by Ranger. Oh, you are going to love using these nibs, especially for small areas. They have a very small point on them and you can color in the smallest area without smearing outside the line. The flowers were made with the Medium Blossom and Small Stamen punches. This blossom punch can also be used to create cherry blossoms, which I am anxious to work on. The leaves are from the Sizzix "Branch w/Leave" die. The pieces were all assembled and a white bow and Stickles were added to complete the card.
What do you think about this new LaBlanche stamp?
