Did you consider joining the Stampin' Up! family during Sale-a-Bration to receive 25% more in your Starter Kit, but missed the deadline? Well, this offer has been extended! From now through March 31st, when you join, for only $99 plus tax, you can select up to $156 in merchandise of your choice for your Starter Kit, and the shipping if free!

Here is another Easter card for you. I used the Easter Blessings stamp again. I love the scrolly font of this stamp. I used my Big Shot again too, along with the Labels Collection Framelits, and the Ovals Collection Framelits from the Spring Catalog. The Paper Doily can be found in the Spring Catalog as well. These are a great addition to cards and scrapbook pages and are very economical. You get 24 doilies in a package for only $2.95. The patterned paper is from the Designer Series Paper Twitterpated. The Butterfly is from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set, punched out with the new Bitty Butterfly Punch found in the Spring Catalog.

Easter Blessings Card

I actually spent some creative time in my studio yesterday. I realized if I was going to send Easter cards, that I'd better "hop" to it and get them made and in the mail! This is one I saw that another Demonstrator had made. It was so pretty, I had to try it.

I used my Big Shot for several different components of this card. The embossed background, the scallop oval, and the oval were all created using my Big Shot. The Easter Blessings stamp is a single stamp and is available in the Spring Catalog. The flower is from the Nature Walk Stamp Set, and the little butterfly is from the Lovely Little Labels Stamp Set. Both of these sets can be found in the Annual Catalog.

There are a couple of different ways to get the two-tone look while stamping. One way is to color directly on your stamps with your Stampin' Write Markers. This works very well, especially if you are using several different colors. With these stamps, since I was just using two colors, I inked up the entire stamp with the main color, then wiped off the part of the stamp that I wanted a different color. Then I used my Stampin' Write Marker to recolor that area. I think this method gives a bit more of a crisper look when stamped.

There are so many great things going on right now with Stampin' Up!
Hop on over to my website to check everything out so you don't miss out on any of these special deals!

I hope you enjoyed today's project. Thanks for stopping by ~

Thinking Outside the Box

By now you should have received your surprise box filled with all the materials needed to complete your first Paper Pumpkin project. Even though complete instructions are included, I decided to think "outside" the box and show you 4 different variations for this project.

I tried to use only the materials included in the kit, but I couldn't put my buttons on my cards without adding some Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine. Another fun addition would be the Basic Rhinestones or Pearls. Even with changing my cards up a bit, I completed them in about 20 minutes! Now I have some cards on hand, ready to stamp a sentiment on the inside, hand write a short note, and pop them in the mailbox. I'm already looking forward to next month to see what my surprise box will bring me!

What fun, the anticipation of a new project delivered right to your doorstep each month. If you haven't signed up yet, you will need to sign up by the 10th of the month to get your Paper Pumpkin project that month. Each project is designed to be completed in 30 minutes or less! Reward yourself, and set aside a little creative time. Visit the Paper Pumpkin website HERE to get your first project on it's way. Be sure to choose me as your Demonstrator ~ Thanks!

I hope some of you are able to enjoy the beginning of Spring. We have been slammed with a Spring snowstorm! Last measurement, about 8 inches. My poor daffodils and crocuses have been buried alive!
