Spring Fling!!

Happy Tuesday friends!! Oh, how I wish I could say "Happy Spring" to ya too, lol! Looks like we've got a few more weeks of winter unfortunately & its supposed to be yucky and snowy here tomorrow! Dumb groundhog and his horrible predictions (giggle)!! To cheer ya up (if you're in a winter hating mood like myself) I've got a couple of spring projects for you today!

I also wanted to let you in on some news of mine too---I have been guest designing for Heather Rolin of H&M Stamps for a couple of months & I'm honored & thrilled to say that she has asked me to remain on the DT for the next 6 mos---Wahooooo! So thank you Heather for asking me and if you haven't checked out her stamps--whatcha' waitin' for!! LOL! She has a few new sets coming out next month so stay tuned for those too. I'll have some projects tomorrow using some of her fun sets that are in the store right now!!

My first project today is for "Try It Out Tuesday" challenge #6 over on Susana's Custom Art & Card Design store blog "Follow Your Heart"! This week's challenge was to use any of the new "Anki's Sweetheart" stamps to make anything BUT a card! And lucky me that yesterday's Technique Challenge #208 on SCS was a round-top box template---yay! Such a fun and easy project to do---just print out the template right onto your cs and cut out, a bit of scor-tape and its assembled! The dp is from DCWV new "Whimsey" stack (fabby spring papers) and all the cs is from PTI.

I chose the "Catherine with Butterfly" stamp for my project because she just looks so carefree & spring-like to me! The sentiment is from Verve Stamps "Fairy Tales" and then I stamped over it with their flower stamp from "Beautiful You". The circles including the background one were all made with my circle nestabilities and my hole punch. I punched 2 butterflies out of vellum with my MS butterfly punch and attached them---so pretty and delicate looking! I think this would make a wonderful Easter or spring treat box---mine is filled with those yummy strawberry Whoppers (oh so good) and tied off with ribbon from PTI!!

Make sure and head over to the store blog HERE, to see what the rest of the DT has come up with for their projects! And we'd love to have you join in too! Also visit the store's PaperCraft Planet site to join in on our sketch challenge contest we have running--all details can be seen HERE!

My second project uses stamps from Whiff of Joy's new Spring stamp kit which has been shipped out to everyone (so if you ordered it, it will be their very soon)! All of these stamps will be available for individual purchase at the end of this week at the Whiff of Joy site in case you're dying for some of these adorable Elisabeth Bell cuties! (I have not recieved my Medieval stamps yet, but hopefully this week & then I'll have some projects up w/ them too)



I used 3 of the new stamps (girl, tree stump and butterfly) on this card---the sentiment is from the "Party Animal" sentiment set. Isn't she just so adorable dressed up in her spring best--I love that their are a couple of images in this set that you can "sit" on things including this stump. All the papers are from Basic Grey's "Lily Kate" paired up with PTI's spring rain cs! I sponged my sky/cloud bg and popped the girl and butterfly up w/ dimensionals. The corner brackets are a Spellbinders die and the pearls are by KaiserKraft.


Check out the rest of the WOJ DT's blogs (on my sidebar) today for more peeks at the Spring Stamp Kit--they've got some beautiful projects up!



See ya tomorrow & hugz,
Suzanne

    Since this shade of blue is my favorite color, I tend to drift toward flowers like these. You did such a good job with the white/blue & a pretty bow.
