Spring Fling Blog Hop


Welcome to the Stamp It Groups Spring Fling Blog Hop.  Whether you started with my blog or "hopped" over from one of my teammate’s blogs, I am happy you stopped by!
I know I say this on every blog hop, but I had so much fun making this card.  
The card front was made using the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper and the Grown with Love Bundle.
Just looking at the front of this card, it doesn't look like much, but when you open it up.....WOW!

I think what I like the most about this card is you can make it as simple or as difficult as you want. Once you get the card scored and cut out, you can just let your imagination run wild and decorate to your hearts content. I was having so much fun, it was hard to stop adding more to the card.  Here are some close-up views of the inside of the card.
The center opening was made using the Charming Cafe Bundle.  The flower banners were adhered onto the card using mini dimensionals.  The forest animals are from the We Must Celebrate stamp set.  The bird houses in the background are made from the Flying Home stamp set.  A couple of the bird houses were fussy cut and then adhered to the card with Stampin' dimensionals.  The banner is from the Birthday Banner stamp set and the Bunch of Banners framelits.  The Hello Spring sentiment is from the Hello Easter stamp set and is adhered to the card with Stampin' dimensionals. Everything was colored using Stampin' Blends.
 The background paper on the side panels is from the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper pack. The bird nest from the Flying Home stamp set was first stamped onto Whisper White cardstock using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Then colored with Stampin' Blends and fussy cut out.  The bird nest was adhered to the card using Stampin' dimensionals.
 Here's a look at the inside of the card laid out flat, and then below, what the card looks like looking down from the top.
The inspiration for this card came from a YouTube video by 
Maymay Made it Crafts!  For the card base cutting dimensions, please click here!  All of the products I used to make this card are available at my online store.
The winner of last month's Team Stamp It Valentines Theme Blog Hop was Phyllis Sinclair.

Valentine's Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stamp It Groups Valentine's Day Theme Blog Hop.  Whether you started with my blog or "hopped" over from one of my teammate’s blogs, I am happy you stopped by!
Valentine's is such a fun time of year!  And this card was no different, it was lots of fun to make!  Product from both the new 2018 Occasions catalog and the 2018 Sale-A-Bration catalog were used to make this card.
The panda bear is from the Party Pandas stamp set that is available for free with a qualifying purchase in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.
The sentiment for the inside of the card is from the Sure Do Love You stamp set.  For complete instructions on how to make this card, please click here.
I had such a hard time coming up with the final design for this card.  I had a concept in my mind, but just couldn't get it to fruition.  
This is what the original card looked like.  It's cute, but just didn't have the WOW factor I was looking for.
Speaking of WOW!
Congratulations Barbara Brennan!
