Last call for Sale-A-Bration!

This time of year always seems to fly by at light speed!  Well maybe it is all times of year lol!  I can’t believe tomorrow is already April 1st!!  Anyway, that means that today is the end of Sale-a-Bration!  So you only have a few more hours to get in on some of the super cute items that come for free with a $50 order.  One of my absolute favorites this year is this Botanical Butterfly DSP.  It is so cute and the colors are so perfect!  Best of all, many of the butterfly images fit right in the Butterfly Duet punch!  I love this the most!

Here’s a trick to punch out just the large butterfly from the paper and not damage any surrounding images with the smaller butterfly part of the punch.  Trim the butterfly from the paper and then use a post it to create a “handle” so you can put the butterfly image in the punch.  It works every time!  See pics below:

I love the lemon lime twist, grapefruit grove and highland heather together in this card, I think this color combination is so pretty and springy 🙂

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 134!!!!

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop!  You won’t want to miss the amazing prettiness that I know you will find at all the stops along the way!

I have been stamping like a kook the last few weeks, now I need to share like a kook!  I gold embossed my butterflies, colored them with Blends and then punched them out with the Butterfly Duo Punch.  So fast and easy and they came out so lovely I think!  A little watercolor wash in Lemon Lime Twist, a little splatter and a gorgeous “friend” die cut in Gold Foil and this sweet card was almost finished!  The final touches of vellum, sequins and flax ribbon strings brought this card right over the top for me!

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 131!!!!

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop!  You won’t want to miss the amazing prettiness that I know you will find at all the stops along the way!

This week I have another sweet new coordinated stamp set and framelit set in the new Occasions Catalog!  I just love how easy it is to create something fabulous with these new items 🙂  This card looks amazing but was super easy to make.  I brought in some Brusho to give that extra pop of color and I love how it came out.  I also love how the white embossed flourish stamp peeks through the butterfly die cut.
