Springy Club Cards

These are the two cards we made at April's Stamp Club. I was thinking "Mother's Day" when I made them but they are so perfect for Spring too. I love monotone colors....its simplistic but elegant. You can click on the photos to enlarge them and see the details more clearly.

I got my inspiration for this card from one of my favorite blogs, This n' That. Gretchen Clark make the prettiest cards. I love everything she does.

I L-O-V-E the Filigree Brads. They are so pretty and add so much to a project.

I used the new Scallop Oval Punch and the Large Oval Punch for the sentiment. Love how they nest....I want more sizes now! Hopefully SU! will offer them someday soon. The Scallop Oval Punch is available for purchase from the Occasions Mini Catalog until June 30Th. Go here if you would like to order it. You can also purchase the other oval punches that coordinate with it as well.

March Featured Project

Every month Stampin' Up! features a project for us to make and use for demonstrations and inspiration. I love this month's card mainly because of the butterflies. I am so ready for Spring weather to really be here for good! This card is also super easy to make but doesn't look like it kind of card!

Here 's the info on making it if you'd like to recreate it:


Stamps: Great Friend (Occasions Mini Catalog)

Paper: Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss & Whisper White

Ink: Basic Gray, Baja Breeze & Kiwi Kiss

Accessories: Stampin' Dimensionals, Summer Love Rub-Ons (Occasions Mini Catalog)

I don't think my love for this set will be over any time soon though! : D

Occasions Mini Catalog

Today is the first day you can order from the Occasions Mini Catalog. As a demonstrator, I was able to preview the catalog and preorder some of the goodies. One of the things I got was the new scallop oval punch. Its awesome and coordinates with the small and large oval punches from the big catalog. It also coordinates with a new stamp set from the mini catalog, Oval Alls. I love that whole matchy-matchy thing that Stampin' Up is known for. It makes projects easy and look so good. I'll have some projects using some of my new stuff up in the near future so look out for them! If you would like to look at the catalog and shop from it, click here, then on "Shop Now" and then on "Specials".
