Asian Inspired


Lately I feel I have been neglecting my Stampin' Up stamps so I thought I would make a card with one today. The set "Artfully Asian" is one of my favorites. The cherry blossom branch is so beautiful. For this card I stamped the branches on some LilyKate DP and colored it in with my Prisma colors. I then pulled out my new tiny prima flowers and embellished them with rhinestones. I then stamped the leave images on VV card stock and cut them out. I placed them behind the sentiment and through the May Arts ribbon. The card stock is SU Olive, Regal Rose, and Chocolate Chip. I also used my cuttlebug embossing folder on the Olive paper. The card sketch is from the awesome CPS site. If you have not checked them out you should because they have the most amazing layouts. Techniques used are sponging and faux eyelets. Stay tuned for some more Stampin' Up cards..Hugs Ana
