Bright Birthday Butterflies

Here's a bright and cheerful card I made for a friends birthday. Bright and cheery sounds pretty good on this "Spring" morning since it's snowing and everything is turning white instead of green. :-( Last weekend it was 85 and let me tell you I was so ready for warm weather! Oh well, I'm sure this won't last long, and hopefully it will be the last snow...until at least November. Anyways...I'm sure you didn't come here to hear me complain, right? So here's the bright, cheery card I was talking about before my rant.

I punched out squares of patterned papers from the Brights Pattern stack...Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango & Tempting Turquoise, and added a die cut butterfly using the Beautiful Wings Sizzlet. Each one is accented with a Basic Rhinestone. The birthday block was embossed with Black EP. I layered the black polka dotted ribbon over Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding Ribbon.

I hope wherever you are that you are experiencing much better weather!

Sweet Child O' Mine

Today is my oldest sons Birthday, so I thought I'd share a scrapbook page I created using one of my favorite photos of him when he was just a little guy along with lyrics to one of my favorite songs.

The year he was born the song "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns 'n Roses was a huge hit. To this day, the song always reminds me of Chris who is still a sweetie and has "eyes of the bluest skies". This page was created using My Digital Studio.

Have a great weekend!

Paisley Petals Best Wishes

Here's a quick card using the gorgeous Paisley Petals paper and Four Frames stamp set which are part of the Spring is Blossoming special for April. The print I chose for this card is the other side of the paper I used in my last post.

I cut a mask for this cute bird frame image out of a post it note, and while that was in place I used the Very Vintage roller inked in River Rock to make the background inside the frame. Then I sponged a little Chocolate Chip ink around the inside edge before removing the mask.

Thanks for stopping by today,

I'm Seriously in Love!

...with both the new Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper and the Four Frames Stamp Set! Does that make me involved in a love triangle? Seriously, I aint foolin'...(yes, today is April 1st so had to work that in somewhere) these are both must have items. Check out this card I made using the new paper and stamps.

I think my favorite stamp in the Four Frames set is the one I used here because it works so well with one of my absolute favorite stamp sets - Elements of Style. I also used the Watercolor Trio set for the sentiment. I hope that set makes it into the new IB&C...{LOVE} that set too!

Stamps: Elements of Style, Four Frames & Watercolor Trio
Card stock: Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White & Paisley Petals DSP
Ink: Black Stazon, Pear Pizzazz & various other Classic Inks for watercoloring
Accessories: Decorative Label Punch, Antique Brads, Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon, Aqua Painter & Nesties
The Four Frames stamp set and the Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper will be in the upcoming Idea Book & Catalog, but right now it's part of Stampin' Up!'s "Spring is Blossoming" April Special. If you want to know more about the Spring is Blossoming Special, you can read all about it right here.
