Stamp Club March Projects

Here are a couple of goodies I made for my stamp club. The Parisian Breeze DSP is my new favorite paper  - if you don't have it, you MUST get it! As with some of the Designer Series papers in the catalog, it's so much prettier in person! 

This page uses the Delicate Dots DSP and So Saffron grosgrain ribbon, both FREE Sale-A-Bration items. I love free stuff! The scalloped oval will be available in the Occasions mini catalog beginning April 1st. 

Now, I know that my flowers look a little squished on the tag  - that's because this isn't MY card, lol. MINE had my sentiment stamped a little lower so that everything looked perfectly balanced in the tag. I'm not saying who took my card home, but I know who you are...!  I'm "so glad we're friends", lol! :) BTW, every sentiment in the Best Yet set, which is the set I used on this card, fits perfectly in the large metal edge tags (also by SU).  I've had these tags laying around forever wondering what to put on them, and now I know!

Easter Card

My girlfriend asked me if I could come up with a simple Easter card project for an upcoming event. It's a small get together with no sales involved (though there is a small fee to make the card), so I thought it would be ok to use some retired products.  Until my new sets from the Occasions mini-catalog arrive, I have to make do with Faith & Hope, and oldie but much loved Easter stamp set from the 2006 mini catalog. I love this set, and I don't think I'll ever part with it! I used the phrase stamp from that set, along with the retired Spring Flowers punch. I feel like it's missing something though...maybe more layers? 

As I was making this card, I realized that I'm a total ribbon addict, and I was wondering if it was possible for me to make a card, scrapbook page, anything without ribbon on it... Maybe that will be a challenge for me this month!

Supplies used: Faith & Hope stamp set, Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip, Kraft, So Saffron and Kiwi Kiss cardstock, Washington Apple DSP, Chocolate Chip ink and wide grosgrain ribbon, Spring Flowers punch, silver brads, Big Shot "Little Leaves" die, Cuttlebug polka dot embossing folder.
