Paper Flower Card - Part 2!

First, let me apologize for the terrible lighting in this picture. I took it at night and the colors just don't look quite right!
This card has a different version of paper flowers. I've used 2 layers of paper punched from the Extra Large Fancy Flower punch (available through April 30th in the Occasions Mini catalog), one flower punched from the 5-Petal Flower punch and one flower from the Boho Blossoms punch. Everthing is held together with a silver brad. The leaves are also from the 5-Petal Flower punch. The SU backgrounds Texturz plate adds a bit of interest to the background. The sentiment is from the Well Scripted stamp set, also in the Occasions Mini Catalog.
  • Stamps: SU Well Scripted (Occasions Mini Catalog)
  • Paper: SU Whisper White, So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Shades of Spring DSP (Occasions Mini Catalog)
  • Ink: Certainly Celery
  • Accessories: SU Extra Large Fancy Flower Punch (Occasions Mini Catalog), 5-Petal Flower punch, Boho Blossoms punch, silver brads, Texturz Plates, Big Shot, Certainly Celery ribbon

Paper Flower Birthday Card

We've had beautiful weather in our area the past couple of days, and it's given me major Spring Fever! I've been working on a few cards in my craft room and my Fever has rubbed off on my paper crafting...lots of flowers and spring colors.
Aren't these paper flowers adorable? I've seen several examples online, but this is my version. They are simple to create, yet make such an impact.
I've used a few Sale-A-Bration products on this card. Don't forget SAB ends in just a few days on March 31st. For every $50 you purchase in product, you can choose a FREE SAB item. Click on the SAB catalog on the right hand side of the screen to see your choices!

St. Patrick's Day Scrapbook Page

This is a scrapbook page from a picture I took yesterday! Never have I scrapped a page the day after the event happened! Just like my cards, my pages tend to be super simple...remember, I still have pages from 2008 to finish - I have no choice but to be simple!

My Digital Studio makes it so easy!

Good Luck Card

Today's card is a simple one we made at my home school kids' class recently. It uses an old stamp set from Sale-A-Bration from last year - sorry! The hearts are stamped with Polka Dot Punches (SAB 2009) and punched out with the Full Heart punch. If you don't have this stamp set, it would look equally as cute to emboss the hearts with one of the Stampin' Up! embossing folders or Texturz Plates.

You could easily have put "Happy St. Patrick's Day" from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set for the sentiment, but I chose "Good Luck" from Fundamental Phrases because it could be used year round.

  • Stamps: SU Polka Dot Punches, Fundamental Phrases, Teeny Tiny Wishes
  • Paper: SU Whisper White, Glorious Green, Basic Black
  • Ink: SU Basic Black, Glorious Green
  • Accessories: SU Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch, Scallop Edge Punch, Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder, Full Heart Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals
