Stamp Simply #122 - Think Spring!



Who's tired of winter, raise your hand!

Smiley from millan.net
I know I certainly am, and I think Sharon Johnson is too, because for today's Stamp Simply challenge we're thinking about Spring by creating with florals and fresh, Springy colors! Stop by Sharon's blog for complete details, and of course check out her fabulous sample. She's got Mr. Linky up and running too, so when you get your creation done be sure to link it up there!

For my card, I decided what says Spring more than tulips? And my good ole' Kitchen Sink Stamps have been sorely neglected in my studio, so out came the Multi-Step Tulip Garden set for today! And speaking of Kitchen Sink Stamps, did you know there was a kitchen remodel that just took place? Maria's got a whole new look in the kitchen, so be sure and stop by to check it out!
I also took the chance to use my new Basic Grey "Origins" paper pad for today's challenge. The colors in this collection are just beautiful!

Stop and see what my Stamp Simply Sisters have created for today's challenge and for further inspiration!

This is gorgeous, Tammy. That tulip reminds me of the SU two step Terrific Tulips (I think that's the name)set. I can't believe how much definition you can get with those multiple stamps from Kitchen Sink. At first I thought this was a photo of a tulip. wow! So Lovely!
