Circle of Spring

The Circle of Spring Stamp Set that coordinates with the Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies can be used for Easter, Mother's Day, Birthday, Thank you, and any spring occasion. Then when the winter occasions come around use the Framelits with the  coordinating Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set. 

My card base of Whisper White Card Stock was layered with a piece of Daffodil Delight Card Stock that was embossed with the Flutteriong Embossing Folder.  I stamped my wreath with Wild Wasabi Ink and filled in the flowers with a Daffodil Delight Marker.  This was cut out with the coordinating framelit and placed onto my card using Dimensionals.  The Happy Easter Sentiment was punched out using the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch and placed in the middle of the wreath.   I added my cut bow and finished it off with a Candy Dot.

Balloon Celebrations

Birthdays and balloons make for a fun and festive card, and purchasing the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set and coordinating Balloon Bouquet Punch in a bundle saved me 15%.  I used these products with a lot of other coordinating products, which is just one of the many things I love about Stampin' Up!.

My card base of Melon Mambo Card Stock was layered with a piece of Whisper White Card Stock and strips of It's My Party Designer Series Paper.  I then cut two smaller layers of Melon Mambo and Whisper White and added my stamped and punched balloons.  I stamped the full balloon in a lighter ink and the dots for the balloon in a coordinating darker color.  Before I placed them onto my card I stamped my strings.  Some of the balloons were put directly onto the layer with Snail Adhesive and a few were placed on using Dimensionals to make them pop.  I added my birthday sentiment which I punched out with the Washi Label Punch and added a few It's My Party Enamel Dots.

Grateful Bunch

Another fun bundle is the Grateful Bunch Stamp Set and coordinating Blossom Bunch Punch.  One of the stamps in this 8 piece photopolymer set has the three coordinating flowers all on one stamp making punching them out quick and easy.

My card base of Whisper White Card Stock was layered with a piece of Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper.  Before I stamped my flowers and leaves I stamped my Happy Birthday, which is from the Rose Wonder Stamp Set, so I knew where I could place my flowers.   I then stamped my images onto this one sheet of Whisper White Card Stock that measured 3 3/4" x 4 1/2".  After my images were stamped I cut this paper into three equal pieces measuring 3 3/4" x 1 1/2" each.    I stamped my three flowers that coordinated with the punch in a darker color, placed them onto my card using Dimensionals and added some White Perfect Accents to the center of these flowers to finish my card.  
The credit for this design goes to many other talented Stampin' Up! demonstrators who share their projects.  I saw this cut out done a few times and thought I would try it at the workshop I had on Wednesday.

Easter Lamb

Easter will soon be here so I started to prepare some Easter Cards for my class this month.  One of the cards uses the new Easter Lamb stamp.  He's really cute all by himself, but I  added a few punched flowers and pretty designer paper to make him stand out a bit more.

My card base is Whisper White Card Stock that was layered  with a piece of Pool Party Card Stock, a small piece of Old Olive Card Stock and some Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper.  I punched out two different sizes of flowers, and added small pearls to the flower centers.  My lamp, stamped on Whisper White Card Stock was cut out with a Circle Framelit and placed onto the card using Dimensionals.
