March Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop

Another month has flown by and it is time for the Blog Hop. This month our theme is Spring. There is so much that can be celebrated in Spring. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone came up with and I'm sure you wouldn't want to miss out either so make sure to hop along to all the blogs.

My first card I used a layout from a card that I saw in the annual catalog on page 166. I was a little stumped when creating so I flipped open the catalog and looked and all the beautiful samples. When I saw the one on page 166, the idea to use the pinwheel sizzlit came to mind and this is what I ended up with.

Items Used:
Stamp Set: Best Dad Ever
Paper: Sycamore DSP, Summer Starfruit, Tangerine Tango, Pool Party, Sahara Sand
Ink: Island Indigo
Other: Pinwheel Sizzlit, Big Shot, Brad, Adorning Accents Embossing Folder

Stampin' Up has been releasing some awesome single stamps and I couldn't pass up the Ears to You Stamp Set. Those bunnies are just to cute. I don't own many Easter stamp sets so this was the perfect reason to purchase it.

I paired the stamp with some springy colors and it made for a great simple Easter card.

Items Used:
Stamp Set- Ears to You
Paper- Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White
Ink- Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, Pink Pirouette
Other- Big Shot, Honeycomb Embossing folder, Labels Collection Framelits, Paper Piercing Pack

Still have time to Sale-A-Bration

There is still time to get those cute Sale-A-Bration items for FREE! When you spend $50.00 on product you get to chose one of the Sale-A-Bration items for absolutely free.

This card showcases several of the free items you can choose from: Sycamore Street DSP, Vine Street Embossing Folder, and the greeting was stamped with the Feeling Sentimental Stamp Set. I love how they all coordinate together.

I used the Oval Framelits to cut out the sentiment and used the new Bitty Butterfly Punch from the Spring Catalog. That little butterfly is adorable. It even coordinates with the larger butterfly punch from the regular catalog.

I did remake this card and only changed one thing. I used the Honeycomb embossing folder instead of the Vine Street. I love embossing folders! I think that they add so much to a card and I often have a hard time not using one.

Make sure to check back tomorrow as it is time for the Stylin' Stampin' Blog Hop.
