Here is a look at the set Spring Ephemeral  , Collection 1


Now isn’t this pretty???

From The Atelier

Want to see what I made with it today???      OK here it is.

   Oh My I really like this set and how this card turned out.  It was a very simple card to make.

So How did you do that you ask…

My “Nesties” circles and scallops did the hardest part of this card….and that wasn’t hard.  I used white cardstock and charcoal grey .  I really like the look of the celery green.  My images were stamped with Hybrid Palette Inks in Charcoal.  I did make a mask of the large flower using the Eclipse tape from Flourishes.  That artist tool is one I can hardly live without anymore.  I keep my mask of the images I make up and store them in the case along with the stamp for future usage.

The rest of the card is very simple.  the card base is Certainly Celery, by SU and is a 5 inch square card.  A strip of white and tiny layer of black make this card pop.  The ribbons are all from Flourishes and I love the fact that all of them in the color family match.  The small black is 3/8″ and is the very same as the 1″ satin ribbon that we carry.  Very Pretty.  The Green organza add a light touch and the polka dot keep this card from being too format.  Of course the sentiment,” Je ‘taime”, “I love you” is wonderful and is from our Open to Love set….yes it is a clean new look of Love!


Thanks for stopping in the Atelier today, I ‘m glad you did.
