Spring is in the Air...promotion!!!

Where have I been???  I apologize for not sharing anything with you in the last week!  My hubby had to have his knee redone (YES AGAIN!!!) on the 7th.  It was infected and wouldn't heal...so I am playing NURSE KELLY again.  He's finally turned the corner (on Friday) and is starting to get through the day and night without excruciating pain.  And it's the middle of Sale-a-Bration - LOL!  Things have been just a little hectic...to say the least!  I promise to share more stamping ideas with you...but maybe not until next week.  I have an event every night this week - and really look forward to them!!!!  It's a fun escape!  SHhhhhhh don't tell him I said that!

Spring Card

100_9349

Here's another pretty card I received in a swap from Debbie Naylor - again using the Bloomin' Marvelous stamp set. This card just screams spring - doesn't it???
.
100_9350
.
Debbie used Summer Starfruit for her card base with Rich Razzleberry, Summer Starfruit and Pool Party ink.  The scallop square punch is the perfect layer behind the 1-1/4 square punch - to let the little scallops peek out. The wide oval punch was used for the "bloomin marvelous" greeting.

Technique Tuesday!!!!

100_9358

 

Join me on:

Tuesday, March 5th

6:30 pm

Trinity Lutheran School - Menasha

...for a fabulous Technique Tuesday class!  The class is $5 with a $15 order or FREE with a $40 order.

We'll be making all three cards shown here - a motion technique card, a fun punch card and a fun fold card!!! YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS ONE!  Pop me an email to let me know you're coming!

100_9357

Here's the fun punch card we'll be making....France Martin shared this idea and I just modified it a tiny bit for my class.  I used the Polka Dot Parade Designer Paper for my shamrock leaves...and they're made out of the large heart punch - how cute!!!  You need to punch 6 hearts and fold them each in half.  Then butt the folded edges up against each other to make 3 hearts.  You glue one side of each heart down so that the fold will pop up the petals.  Easy peasy, lemon squeezie!!!

I also used the Jumbo Rhinestones in the center of my clover and the adorable little stamp set called Itty Bitties from the spring catalog.  My greeting comes from Teeny Tiny Wishes and if you look closely, you can see the splattering of color under the tiny shamrocks - I used the Color Spritzer Tool and an Old Olive Marker.  And the stem was just cut freehand.
