Just a sweet note...

The pastels are back!  However, I paired them with some brighter colors, and I love them today! :)   Again we are sharing projects from the new March set, Springtime Celebrations from Avocado Arts. 

I love these little dropping jelly beans, they are so cute!  I did pull out my copics for this card.  Can't really screw up teeny tiney little jelly beans, can ya?  I managed not to this time.  ;)

Happy Leap Day!

So long time no post- life has been crazy- all in a good way! :)

Today the pit crew are sharing projects from the new March set, Springtime Celebrations.   I am not usually a fan of pastels.  Here and there, and maybe mixed in with other darker shades, they're ok.  But not on their own.  But once a year, I pull out the pastel inks and card stocks!

For my card today, I decided to leave the egg as the focus on the white die cut- it's stamped in Clearsnap Papay Cream pigment ink.  The little chevrons are totally awesome in this egg!  The grass, which is a separate stamp, is stamped in  Clearsnaps Lime ink. 

I think the chevrons make up for the Easter pastel colors!

Lucky to have you


It's the 15th! Time for a sneaky peek of next months set!  For my card today, I used the new Avocado Style Borders and Sentiments, February's set;  Wishes & Kind Thoughts, and March's set; Springtime Celebrations. 
I stamped the border image from the Borders set three times along the right side, alternating them.  I layered several Circle Nestabilities, stamped with the image from the March set.  I then stamped a few random hearts from the February set in pink inside the border image.

Valentines one day, St. Patty's the next , just like the department stores! ;)

Samantha Walker Creative team hop!

It's that time of the month again- the Samantha Walker Creative Team is sharing some fabulous projects for you!

Also- Samantha is offering up a FABULOUS prize of one of her die sets from Spellbinders!  More on that below.


First, my cards,  I decided to use the Blossoms Tags and Accents die set on both projects just so you could see the dies in action. 
First up, a simple Valentine- a shaped card using the largest of the die templates in the set.   I stamped the sentiment (from the Blossom Stackers) onto the middle die.  the card is finished off with some red gemstones.

Next, another Valentine ;) I used the dies on a card paired up with some Creative Imaginations paper.  I stamped the hearts (from the With All My Heart set) randomly on the top portion of the card, as well as on the focal point and finished it off with some ribbon, and a few pearls. 

onto the prize giving info!

Gina K Designs inspirational hop day one

Welcome, Welcome!  Today I am sharing a few cards from Gina K’s newest release.  Be sure to catch all the other samples from the Design Team today  –  And make sure to check out all the new stamps on the All New page!!

First up is Melanies Stately Flowers 3 set.   I like to use the stamps to make backgrounds- here, I randomly used the flower all over the top 2/3 of the card.  I ran the bottom piece through an M-Bossibilities folder AFTER stamping the sentiment.   I finished it off with a few gems from Want2Scrap.

My second card for today uses Mehndi Wishes from Rupa.  I have always loved those pretty henna tattoos that women get all over their hands, this one realllly reminds of them.  The Gandhi sentiment is one of my favorites!
