Happy Easter Lamb

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Easter is Early This Year It’s hard to believe that Easter is just a few short weeks away already! I’ve been all over the place with my stamping lately – one day a Valentine, another day a couple of birthday cards, maybe a Christmas card, and then this Easter one. This card actually began with the Blushing Bride/Gold banner, left over from last year’s ‘Filled With Love’ Paper Pumpkin kit from Stampin’ Up! (I never finished that kit, so there are pieces of it lying around my crafting space – shhh! I know Valentine’s Day…

You’re One of a Kind

In my last post, I challenged you to change out the paper and ink and create a flowery card for someone special. This is the new version I created in summery colors, using paper from Birthday Basics that has a butterfly-like pattern to it. I love the gumball green and crisp cantaloupe together!  Both cards used a half doily as the background for the sentiment, but they are two different sizes with different lace patterns. Which one is your favorite? Product List A Dozen Thoughts Clear-Mount Stamp Set [131059] Papillon Potpourri Clear-Mount Stamp Set [123759] Petite Petals [clear] [133155] Crisp Cantaloupe…

To Have and To Hold

With wedding season upon us, here’s an idea for a pretty card to celebrate the special occasion. Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral are so sweet together and the Petite Petals stamps and punch create a perfect floral frame for this wedding couple. The color scheme can easily be changed to fit your favorite paper or the couple’s wedding theme. Sadly, the Best of Brides and Babies stamp set from Stampin’ Up!’s Best of 25 Collection, is no longer available. The good news is that you can substitute any wedding stamp you like and just adjust the size of the oval opening with the oval framelits…

Birthday Petals

When I think of warmer weather (and who doesn’t dream of warmer weather with the unpredictable winter we’ve had!), the first thing that comes to mind is that my favorite spring flowers will be popping up through the snow, hopefully soon. Since the weather is still snowy/rainy here and the flowers haven’t popped yet, I soothed my spring longing by creating a bright and cheery birthday card. What will you be creating while you’re waiting for temperatures to rise to higher digits? Ready to make your own spring flowers? Click on any link in the list below for more information on…
