I may have just done something I have NEVER done before… Used a stamp NOT from Stampin’ Up! (GASP). Before you go calling the authorities, hear me out… let me plead my case.
Here in Hawaii we celebrate a holiday called Girls’ Day (On March 3–which also happens to be the birthday of my oldest son…) And, Girls’ Day is a big deal here. And, it is traditionally celebrated by displaying Japanese Dolls, but I didn’t have any stamps like that, so I chose the cherry blossom. Cause that’s the only other stamp that I had that was remotely close… (When, you see my post for May, celebrating Boys’ Day, you will understand what compelled me to try to do something for the girls… you know, equal treatment…) 🙂
I do love this cherry blossom stamp. It is feminine, gorgeous, and a perfect way to usher in spring and the newness that spring brings. And, I used little dollops of the wink of stella to make it shimmer just a bit (ALL the paper–pink pirouette and whisper white– and ink –soft suede and pink pirouette) are from Stampin’ Up… so I haven’t completely disowned my upbringing…
This reminds me of Washington DC in the spring. Who is the vendor on the stamp – promise I won’t out you. All your months are wonderful. I have made several.
