Blossom Tin project

Are you ready for Spring??? It is gorgeous here in Texas with 75 degree weather this week, ahhhhhhhh......... My thoughts always turn to flowers and butterflies and gardens when I think of spring, and I created this Blossom Tin project to usher in the gorgeous spring weather.

I used the Rectangle Mini Album Tin Set from Creative Cuts and More to start this project. I chose to use smooth cardstock because I wanted to stamp on these. The brown accordian layer (called Album on the website) is Carob Cream Bazzill Smoothies cardstock, and the little panels (called Mats on the website) are White Bazzill Smoothies cardstock. The metal tin comes with this album and they fit together beautifully. The Killer Red Tacky Tape is the only adhesive that keeps the cardstock on the metal tin. Everything else just popped right off, but the cardstock is NOT moving since I used the Killer Red Tacky Tape.

All the stamps used here are from Verve. I just pulled out all of my Verve stamps and had a blast picking and choosing which stamps to use. I laid out all of the cardstock pieces and set the stamps next to them to get a feel for how this project would flow. I love the way it turned out!
