Stampinup Occasion Mini Easter Blossoms Stampin Up Sale A Bration

Today my card is soft and beautiful and says to me spring is in the air.  My color combo is Crumb Cake, a great background color, Whisper White embossed with the Wallpaper Embossing Folder and Pretty In Pink.  I did use a technique. It doesn't have a name, but it reminds me of the look of porcelain, soft and delicate.  Before embossing with your folder, get out your brayer and ink it up with Crumb Cake or Sahara Sand.  Ink the top portion of your embossing folder.  The front side that has the Stampin' Up logo on it.  Place your cardstock in the folder as you normally would and run it thru the Big Shot.  Viola'  You have the beautiful look of porcelain.  Easy Peasy!!!  Just a heads up I would clean my embossing folder with a wet wipe as soon as I am finished with it.  Next I cut a strip of Pretty In Pink and used my Scallop Trim Border Punch.  My Stamp Set is Easter Blossoms.  I hope I have shown you how versatile this Stamp Set can be.  It's not just an Easter set.

Springtime Smiles

Hello My Craftin' Friends. . .  Happy Tuesday!!!   Boy oh Boy look at these lucious fabrics I came across the other day.  They just arrived at my door.  Such pretty pinks, greens, corals, blues and even reds.  Such pretty summer colors.  They come from an on line store by the name of Sew Lux Fabrics and Gifts.  I believe they are out of North Carolina.  The fabric line is called Fandango by Kate Spain.  Click here to view them.  You know what that means, more totes are on their way. 

Today I have an awesome card to share.  I'm still using the stamp set Easter Blossoms.  My color combo turned out very nicely, Pear Pizzazz, Very Vanilla, Not Quite Navy and Springtime Vintage DP.  I love this designer paper.  If you havn't tried it yet, I highly recommend it.  Sale A Bration will be ending in just a few days, but the Occasion Mini will not end till Apr 30th.  There's plenty of time to make our Easter Cards for our family and friends.  This is a great layout, the little girl silhouette was a perfect fit for this design.   I cut three separate panels of NQN at 1 5/8 x 3 3/4".  My DP is then cut at 1.5 by 3 5/8".  I used my nesties for my circles and the Beautiful Wings Embosslits for just a little more pizzazz.  Dressed it up with a little Very Vanilla 5/8" Satin Ribbon and pearls for that feminine touch.
