Feeling Springy....

Well even though it is FREEZING outside and snowing I am feeling like spring!  I am in Spring cleaning mode and have been slowly getting things re-organized and cleaned out, including the ever present ever increasing INBOX from hell!  If you are new to my blog then you do not know this..  I am horrible about deleting my e-mail, currently in my inbox are over 39,000 email, plus I deleted over 29,000 from files!  And although there is a lot to go through I feel lighter already!
On to some cards!

I saw a few cards similar to this first one on Pintrest and thought I know just the stamp set that might work with this technique.  The absolutely beautiful Papillion Potpourri.  I am not sure why I waited this long to get this stamp set but I cannot put it down.  You can find it on page 115 of the Big Catty!  There are two butterfly punches to match this set one in the Big Catty and one in the New Spring!  Amazing!

This card is made with just one piece of Whisper White Card Stock!  I stamped the butterfly on the Card stock in Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and Tempting Turqoise.   After that I just used my paper snips to cut around the butterflies to create this cool edge on the card. The Sentiment is from the hostess set Happiest Birthday Wishes that you can get for having a get together with friends as part of you hostess rewards!  And don't forget, its Sale-a-bration so this is THE best time of the year to be a hostess!  

The next card I worked on yesterday was designed for my upcoming Spring into Spring class.  Tangerine Tango is the base and the DSP is a retired one from Stampin UP!  The images are from the Stamps of Life with Stephanie Barnard!  Love that lady!  This is a stamp set and die cut in one!  Awesome!  makes creating that much easier.

Hope you enjoyed today's creations

Easter Card

So today I was busy cleaning and creating in the craft room!  Well mostly cleaning and organizing.  I seem to get in such a creative streak that sometimes I don't get everything back in its place!  
Here is a card I came up with for my upcoming Spring into Spring class.
I really loved the colour combination and it made me feel fresh and clean like spring!

I used the great new Ovals Framlits to create the Easter Egg shape and popped up the second layer to add texture!  I used the amazing little bow maker that I can run through my Big Shot to make the decorative bow on the top.  The embosslits butterflies complete the look and of course a touch of dazzling diamonds

This was a cute card made from the new Umbrella Set from Stampin UP! and the cloud embossing folder!

Notice the ribbon on the umbrella -- that is a piece of the ribbon pack you can get free right now during sale-a-bration!
Love how cute this card turned out!
