Here's To You!

Hello all,

I am back with my second card from my last workshop! As I said before we had tons of fun. I learned a few more things about doing workshops. This card was maybe a bit too involved for a workshop. There were a lot of elements that made it kind of complicated to put together. It is really cute, but maybe more suited towards a technique club night or something like that. Lessons learned!! It was still fun!
Cardstock: Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party, Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Lucky Limeade.
Stamp Sets: Send me Soaring, Friendly Phrases.
Ink: Basic Grey, Lucky Limeade, Wisteria Wonder, Pool Party.
Tools: Big Shot, Edgelits heart embossing folder, square lattice embossing folder, lucky limeade bakers twine, scallop edge border punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch.
Adhesives: Sticky Strip, Stampin' Dimensionals, SNAIL.

Thanks for checking me out today!  This card is a case of a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator Heidi Boos.  Thanks for the inspiration!  The girls that were at the workshop loved the card, and it showcases a lot of the new products in the occasions mini!

Spring Time

Hello all,
I have been feeling very springy.  It is easy to feel springy when the temperature keeps getting nicer and nicer!!!  yay!!  And not to mention the challenges are all becoming more and more springy, so it's easy to get your crafting to start going towards the spring theme also! 
I made this c ard with the challenge colours from the Pals Paper Arts Challenge blog.  Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink and Chocolate Chip.  the colours are soo cute together.  They are fabulous for spring, but the other thing I think I may be doing is a baby card in these colours.  Pink and green are a super popular colour these days for baby girls.  Anyways, I love the Just Believe Stamp set, it is definately gorgeous, and the Pursuit of Happiness stamp set is so full of beautiful sayings, it sells itself.  There is a sentiment for every occasion.  Anyways, without further ado...

Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Confetti White, Subtles Patterns DSP in Certainly Celery.
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip, and Certainly Celery & Pretty in Pink Markers.
Embellishments: Certainly Celery 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Antique Brads, Basic Pearls.
Stamp Sets: Just Believe, Pursuit of Happiness.
Tools: Stamp-a-ma-jig, Paper Piercer, Adorning Accents Scalloped Edgelits, Corner Rounder Punch, 11/4" Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Simply Scored, SNAIL, Sticky Strip, Stampin' Dimensionals.

Thanks for checking me out again today!  Have a beautiful spring!
