Phew! Another busy week...
I held my monthly stamp-a-stack for April last week and wanted to share the cards with you. This card features designer paper from the Springtime Vintage DSP pack that was in the Occasions Mini catalog along with the Upsy Daisy and Sanded stamp sets. The color combination is very vanilla, pear pizzazz, crumb cake and rose red. Do you see the cute fork bow in the corner? That is made with the crumb cake seam binding ribbon.. no worries, you are still able to purchase the seam binding ribbon from the Occasions mini catalog as they are carryover items!
Here is card #2 - it features the Paisley Petals DSP and Four Frames stamp set that were part of our sneak peek "Spring is Blossoming" special during April. I CASE'd this card layout idea from Julie Davison and tweaked it just a tiny bit... using the scallop border and decorative label punches for my card. The color combination is not quite navy, whisper white and river rock. If you weren't able to purchase these items last month you'll only have a few months to wait before you can get your hands on them... they'll be back in the new Idea Book & Catalog that debuts on July 1st!
Card #3 is a graduation card - I left the colors neutral because I wanted those who didn't need four graduation cards to be able to change the stamp and make this a wedding or anniversary card. The stamp set Word Play that was used for this card is part of our May scrapbooking promotion and is on sale for 30% off this month.. be sure and get it while it is on sale because it is a fantastic set!! The texture on the whisper white piece was added with the Vintage Wallpaper impressions folder for the Big Shot (I love this one!!).
The last card of the night was a CASE of one I created last year featuring the Flores Suaves stamp set from our Spanish catalog. I absolutely love this stamp set! The color combination is one that I have used over and over and found it in our Color Coach - pretty in pink, rich razzleberry and early espresso. The pretty in pink card stock is stamped with the Teahouse background stamp and the script that is on the panel behind the flower is actually from the Flores Suaves stamp set and is just stamped twice. It looks very similar to our retired FrenchScript stamp set that I loved!!
Thanks for visiting.. I'll be back tomorrow for Fabulous Friday with a project featuring products from our Summer Mini catlog.
