It’s a beautiful spring day here in Seattle and what better way to celebrate the sunshine is with this card.


This stamp set, Blessed Easter, can be found in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  It was stamped several times in black Stazon ink and colored in with Crisp Cantaloupe  and Crushed Curry markers.  The greetings is from the stamp set Fabulous Flourishes.

I’ll be back tomorrow with pictures from tonight’s stamp camp.

Having three sons and a husband, you’d think I wouldn’t have such a difficult time creating masculine cards.  It’s always been a challenge; however, I think this card seems to fit the bill.  One of my favorite new Stampin Up accessories are the Washi Tapes.  This card features Retro Fresh This & That Washi Tape from our Occasions Mini catalog (#133001)  A few strips were placed on Vanilla cardstock and then cut out using the Starburst Framelits and the Big Shot.  The Celebrate stamp is from the Starburst Sayings stamp set and both the stamp and framelits are offered in a specially priced bundle (#134817).  Blue Ribbon stamp set (#131961) along with Baked Brown Sugar cardstock, Tangerine Tango ink and Coastal Cabana ink are used as well.

Butterflies always make me think of spring.  Unfortunately, today in Seattle doesn’t look too promising for some Spring weather.  This card uses the Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#132187) from the Occasions Mini Catalog along with the Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper (#132995) also found in the Occasions Mini.  The Elegant Butterfly punch (#127526) was used for the finishing touch.  All three of these items plus some whisper white cardstock and Snail adhesive will earn you free merchandise from the Sale-A-Bration catalog.

Hope you have a little sunshine in your life today and see you tomorrow for more inspirations.
