H&M May Release!

Can you believe May is already here?? Do these months not seem like they are completely flying by you and you're moving in slow motion wondering..."what happened to 2008?!" Ok, maybe that's just me.

Well I am so excited for May to be here and that means another batch of new stamp sets from H&M Stamps!! I'm sooo thrilled with these sets and I can't wait to show you more projects in the upcoming days. I got to make a quick card using the new set, Seeds of Kindness. It is a gorgeous set of black-eyed susans with plenty of cute sentiments.


I followed the sketch challenge from Splitcoast as a layout. I wanted to use my new Layering Daisy punch from Martha, so I punched the flower, folded it in half and then used my embossing stylus to cause the petals to curl. I think they made cute little black-eyed susans!! I also wanted them to look sun-kissed, so I added some Mello Yellow Blingz from Shimmerz to them. :) Here's a close up of the shimmer.

I think this is such a great spring card! Plus, I got to use some of that Saffron dsp from the Sale a Bration paper that I have about 23489072389047239087 pieces of. SCORE!!
