Lilacs, Lilacs Everywhere

Since moving to MN last summer, the one thing I have noticed this spring is how many lilac bushes there are around here. Since I just ordered "Blossoms Abound", it seemed like the perfect idea to create a card with my version of lilacs. This set is SO easy to use. It's not like other stamp sets that scream "Where is my Stampamajig?". It's very easy to line-up the two step stamp images with just eyeballing it!!! Yeah for that!!

The box on the right is really an "explosion card". When you open it up, the box lies flat, and there is a greeting in the center. What would I have done different? Well, the explosion card definitely needs an organdy ribbon to dress it up. Unfortunately, my organdy ribbon is with most of my other stamping supplies in the garage (jeez, I really want my stamping area back.....still cleaning up from the basement flood over a month ago).

My next attempt with this set will be to recreate this card and use my new glue pad to overstamp the lilac image and glitter it up with Dazzling Diamonds. I will post that creation as soon as it's done. I can't guarantee it will happen this weekend. I want to plant some flowers and work on the yard this weekend!!!
