Stampin’ Up!’s Sweet Sorbet is Perfect for Spring Projects!

This week's posts will feature Stampin' Up!'s Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper (#133521) and you can get it free with a qualifying purchase during Sale-a-bration. I love all the designs and the colors, think spring (and I surely need to do that with all the cold weather and snow we have had in the northeast this winter).  The first card I cased from a card made at Tracey Roy's fundraiser for MS earlier this month. I had a request for a Mother's Day card so I made this Mother's Day card using mostly the same products.

The next item is a cute bag (also frrom the fundraiser) that I made when I got home.  Check out the handles made from the Sweater Trim that has retired.  Last time I checked Stampin' Up!'s Clearance Rack they still had 3 colors available. Also I had some Simply Pressed Clay flowers left from a previous project and added it for the center of the flower.

I loved that it matched perfectly with a card I had made the week before showcasing the Spirelli technique (I have made several cards with this embellishment, love it) which is a quick and easy wow factor.

If you want to see all of my friend, Tracey's  projects, you can find her on Facebook at Lakeshore Paper Art!  I loved helping everyone using the Big Shot machine for Tracey and look forward to next year's MS fundraiser.


Sending Springtime Smiles Scapbook Page

SCS Creative Crew  Scrapbooking Challenge for March used the sketch below.  Using the layout we had to show a bright, cheerful, happy page to celebrate spring's arrival. It didn't have to be about spring, just colorful, cheery and it just makes you smile!  For this page, I chose my photos first and then chose the colors based on the photos. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the pictures a little and I love how it turned out. The butterfly on the tag was a leftover from some previous technique experimenting.  It was what my tag needed to complete the page.  I love it when I can recycle other card rejects!

Hello Blossoms and Best Ever Dad!

Well, I know this is a strange combination of stamp sets, however, it works for this card which is totally spring! I used the thinking of you stamp from Best Dad Ever, with the Hello Blossoms stamp to create this fun card. Beyond the Garden was the inspiration piece for the palette I used for this card.

Faux Mother-of-Pearl Technique and Stampin’ Up!’s Spring is Blossoming Promotion

These two cards I created for my Paisley Petals class this Saturday, April 16. Both use the Faux Mother-of-Pearl Technique. This technique was featured in the April issue of Stampin' Success (our demonstrator magazine). It is very pretty in real life and was hard to photograph.

The colors on the first card are: Always Artichoke, River Rock, Tangerine Tango and Whisper White.

I used Tangerine Tango, So Saffron, Early Expresson and Whisper White on the second card.
