Marilyn!!! Congrats--I'll get your awesome prize to you soon!!
Reminder: My STAMP YOUR ART OUT all day event is next Saturday--if you'd like to join us, please RSVP to me at email@example.com ASAP. Cost is $50 if you pay by today or $55 after today. The best part is what a great deal it is...we will have a full day of stamping projects, a goodie bag worth over $40 and even lunch!! Do you want to join us but you live too far away? I can make the projects for you and you'll get everything (well, except the lunch) plus the cost to ship it to you...I promise you won't be disappointed! Let me know if you have questions!!
And I played hookey yesterday--it was my friend Julie's Birthday so we went to Des Moines for lunch (okay, we shopped, too!!) We ate at Cheesecake factory--and would you believe I did NOT order cheesecake????? I really wanted to but since I will be wearing a bathing suit in a few short weeks on the beaches of Hawaii, I thought I'd be a good girl. It was hard! We made Julie get a piece, though! :)
Speaking of Hawaii, I went shopping and got a bunch of ADORABLE stuff at J.Jill. Unfortunately the shopping opportunites here are how do we say....limited!! So, it was fun to go to the big fancy mall!! I also successfully took Andy's new car and managed to come home safely--no spin outs or roll overs--and I was thrilled to have taken my seatbelt off without dropping to the roof of the car! That was a nice treat...see this post if you are wondering what the heck I am talking about! :)
Anyway...onto the cards for today....
This beautiful spring card was done by a demo friend, Amy. I got it at my Pink Bag Trip swap--what a treat!
She used Toile background, A rose is a Rose and Together forever.
Colors are Tegal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful blue, mellow moss and handsome hunter. A little rose grosgrain is so pretty!!
The colors are Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, Kiwi Kiss, and Basic Black.
I used the scallop border punch and black gingham ribbon along with the 1 1/4, 1 3/8 and scallop circle punches.
Happy spring, right? It was so beautiful yesterday...could we have a few more of those, please???
The colors are Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Regal Rose and Close to cocoa. This is one of my absolute favorite color combos as it is...
The set, Cute as a bug is used along with the square punches and a little crystal effects on the catepillar. :)
The chick is done by stamping and creating a "REVERSE MASK" where you cut out the egg but leave the rest so you can stamp the dots on top of the egg, then sponge them. You could also just stamp the egg and cut it out and glue it on top of the chick part.
The Boho Flower, horizontal slot, ticket corner, designer label and 1 1/4" punches are used, too! ADORABLE!!
The stamps are Stitched Exotics. The center of the flower has some chunky glitter for a bit of glitz!
The Edges are distressed and sponged and colored in with aquapainters.
Ribbon is Olive Grosgrain.
The Friend is from the hostess set, A Little SOmethin'
Hope you enjoyed all the springy cards!! Have a great weekend!!
