Spring Blossoms Tree



For my Spring Tree card, I just had to have some sweet pink cherry blossoms in my tree. It's so great that I can use the "leaf" stamp from Branch Out to stamp the blossoms as well as the leaves all over the tree top.

This card needed some soft pastel colors, with just a little pop here and there, so I used Gable Green for the bright grass, and then Celery and Pretty in Pink and Regal Rose for the leaves and blossoms. To make the birdhouse stand out, I stamped it with Stazon Jet Black using my trusty Stampamajig. The sky is sponged with just a tiny hint of Bashful Blue.

When I am ready to mail it, I will find the appropriate sentiment and stamp it at the top in the sky. I'm not sure if this will be a birthday card, a thinking of you card, a Happy Spring card (next year, obviously), or a "have a great day" card. It will be nice to have this one ready for any kind of sentiment. :-)

Stay tuned tomorrow for the last card in my Seasonal Trees card "tour." Don't forget to check out the Belli Challenge over on the Belli Challenge blog today.

What a great idea to use the same stamp to make cards of the different seasons!!! I love this one with the little bird house...you need to frame the 4 of them and give it to someone special...like you wonderful mother!!!!!!!

Holly did it again, another fabulous tree. I like the cherry blossom look, very fun and spring-y.

Lovely spring tree, you are really on a tree kick this week. I'm hoping this stamp set makes it to the new catalog cause I think I need it.
