EASTER BASKET CARD


I made a bunch of these last night with a little help from my girls Meagan and Carolyn.  The stamp set I used is the retired Easter Blossoms which is one of my absolute favorite sets. (now retired)

Supplies:

Coastal Cabana, Crisp Canteloupe, Sahara Sand, and Whisper White card stock
Easter Blossoms stamp set (retired)
Coastal Cabana, Summer Starfruit, and Crisp Canteloupe stamp pads.
Decorative Dots (SAB retired) and Square Lattice embossing folders
Ovals Collection Framelits
Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper (SAB - retired)
Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack (SAB - retired)

I cut the basket base 3 3/4" x 2 1/4".  I angled the sides by measuring in 3/4" on bottom edge and cutting on an angle with my paper trimmer.



BECKY HIGGINS PROJECT LIFE COMING TO STAMPIN' UP!


I love card making but to be honest, have never had much interest in scrapbooking.  I have files and files of photos on my external hard drive and another huge boxful of printed photos tucked under my dresser.  Scrapbooking them seems like a hugely daunting task!

About a year ago I learned of Becky Higgins Project Life.  She developed a scrapbooking system which makes it all so much more simple, quick, and easy!  You simply slip your photos into photo pocket pages.  And now Stampin' Up! has partnered with Becky Higgins!  I am so excited to experiment and get scrapbooking with my photos!  Learn more HERE.

A selection of products will be available May 1st and the full line will be available with the launch of the new annual Stampin' Up! catalog on June 2nd.

PETITE PRIMROSE PETALS CARD


I haven't been posting for awhile but thought I'd share my most recent card, inspired by an Elizabeth Miller card.  I used the new Petite Petals stamp set and coordinating punch.  Also the Perfect Pennants stamp set and coordinating Banners framelits.  I love that you can buy these coordinating products as bundles and save 15%!  The colors are Primrose Petals, Pool Party, Real Red, and Whisper White.

HEXAGON PUNCH VALENTINE CARDS

Today I expect my newest goodies from the Occasions Catalog.  But I got itchy to start creating some new cards and I'm already thinking Valentine's Day.  I wanted to use the hexagon punch and love the idea of tucking a flagged greeting through the center of a hexagon.  The first card uses all current products.  The second one uses many retired products, two which are currently available on the clearance rack including:


Color combo is Real Red, Primrose Petals, Very Vanilla, Basic Black, and Coastal Cabana.  Texture added to Primrose Petals Core'dinations card stock with Honeycomb embossing folder.  Then sanded.  Punched out a heart with small heart punch and added a small piece of Coastal Cabana card stock behind.  For center hexagon - I punched the small 1/2" circle first and then punched out hexagon.  The banner is 3/8" wide.


Color combo is Real Red, Primrose Petals, Very Vanilla, and Pool Party.
