Who's ready for spring?!
The challenge at Less is More for the second week each month is to make a one layer card. The theme this week is to use a flower or a tree. I guess I could argue either way on this since it's blossom on a tree branch!
This is one of the first stamps I ever got. I bought it unmounted on eBay and all the seller could tell me was that it came from an American supplier called Susan Cotes who had a "spare time" business making stamps. I lost track of it for a while but remembered it when thinking what to do for this challenge and hunted it down! It's a nice size for this kind of clean and simple design - this is a 5" square card so you can see it's a substantial stamp.
I found some other oldie but goodie stamps in the process of locating this one so I'm sure they'll be inky soon, too!
One last detail - this card is a great example of why I'm very happy I decided to get a Scor It tool rather than something like the Score Pal. Because you score over a ridge rather than into a groove it means your card is face up on the surface when you make this kind of decorative score line. That means you can score up to the image and stop because you can see exactly what you're doing :o)
Cherry blossom (Susan Cotes)
Bon jour sentiment (Alluring Impressions)
Adirondack by Ranger (Espresso)
Inkssentials white pen by Ranger
Corner Chomper by We R Memory Keepers
Thanks for stopping by, let's hope the blossom on the card is a forerunner of the real thing appearing on our trees soon!
