Sneak Peek: Springtime Doodles thinking of you

Are we having fun? I know I am! I love playing with new stamps, especially Papertrey Ink ones. PINCH ME! This is a super fun and easy design. I started with the raspberry fizz base with some bitty dot basics in the dark chocolate color. Mmmmmm - chocolate covered raspberries! I scalloped the edge of the designer paper, then added some raspberry ribbon. A simple circle punched main image....


I added the dragonfly, then stamped it again on another piece of paper, colored it with copics, trimmed it nicely and added the wings to the main image. I added some dots of stickles to the wings and the body of the dragonfly.

Sentiment was stamped with the dark chocolate ink and I placed two chocolate colored brads on either side of the sentiment.



The ribbon was really simple to make. I took the raspberry stitched ribbon and wrapped it around the card, adhering it with mono. I took another piece of ribbon, made a circle, pinched the center together with a piece of mono, then wrapped a final piece of the ribbon around the center to create the bow. I adhered the bow with a simple glue dot.

Perfectly simple! Be sure to swing by Dawn, Becky, Pine, and Melissa's blogs to see what they are doing with their new sets. And of course check out my BFF's Blog -- Nichole has so much eye candy this month - we are all gonna be on PTI SUGAR overload!
