Easter Blossoms Card

We made this card as one of the three in my "1 - 3 - $5" class this month. (1 hour, 3 cards for $5.00)
The card base is Pretty in Pink, with an overlay of cardstock Vellum. On the white cardstock, under the Vellum, we stamped the little girl with Rose Red and the spray of flowers is stamped in Pretty in Pink. the Happy Birthday sentiment is stamped on top of the vellum with Rose Red. Again, as in yesterday, I love the springy feel of this card. Can you tell that I am soooooooo ready for spring??? I know we haven't had as much snow here in my party of WV as many of you have had elsewhere, but I am so tired of being cold. think it may take till June to thaw out! lol Just let me say that the top 5 things I have been grateful for each of these warm days we have had is: Sunny warm weather, sunny warm weather, sunny warm weather ..... You get the idea!
Happy stanmping, and thanks for stopping by.

Blossom Petal Card - Yellow

I love this card! I have made similar ones in pink and in purple, but this one really strikes my fancy! We made it in Stamp Club this month. Maybe because it was the first truly sunny, warm day we have had since last fall! It just seemed like the sunny day came right in and landed on our card! lol
I used the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder for the background. The color of the flower is Daffodil Delight. The leaves are stamped in Certainly Celery and outlined in Wild Wasabi. Love the little pearl in the center of the flower.
Thanks for stopping by.

Build a Blossom Card

This was a card that we made at one of my monthly stamp clubs. I love the rose embellishment that is in the center of the flower. They are available in our Occasions Mini catalog, now through the end of March. The designer paper is from Springtime Vintage. The flower uses one of the smaller petal stamps and the small petal punch on the Blossoms Petal bunch.
Thanks for stopping by.

Build a Blossom Class

These are two of the projects that we made in the "Build a Blossom" Class this month. the card is one that I got in trade at Leadership. and the little goodie box is one that I came up with. It uses the Fancy Favor Big Shot die, and the Build-a-Flower Stamp set and punch. The center is highlighted with a large pearl from our Basic Pearls. this was a fun class, and we learned a lot about how to position the punch when cutting out the petals. I cut strips of paper for the petals--that way we didn't waste a lot of paper.
Thanks for stopping by. Brenda

February Thank yous

These are the3" x 3" thank you notes that I made for my customers this month. I love the little sizzlet heart. The border is made by using one of our border punches. I love making the monthly thank yous. I especially like it that they can't wait to open them when they pick up their orders at stamp club! and they can be reused by cutting off the front and incorporating it into a bigger card! Thanks for stopping by. Brenda

These are the tiles that we made at our January downline meeting. The main images are done with Staz On ink - Brown and Black which is available in our Stampin Up catalog. They were such fun to make. We put felt pads on the back of these coasters. Thanks for stopping by.

Valentine's Day Scrapbook Pages

These are the pages that my Scrapbook Class made during this month's scrapbooking class. My daughter was home and helped me design these pages! I love the box of chocolates that she used with our punches and the Big Shot Petal Die. The little valentine on the left hand page was made using the Big Shot scalloped envelope die.

Valentine's Day Scrapbook Pages closeup

This is a closeup of one of the pages from yesterday's post. I wanted to point out the heart that my daughter came up with. She used the little scalloped heart sizzlet. Then she took the snowflake punch and cut off one of the prongs of the flake and used it for the "feather" part of the arrow. The arrowhead was made with the discontinued small star punch. She cut off the two side points of the star and , wala--an arrow head!
