Another share today. I love the color 'Red' and with the black Designer Series Paper, this card is a striking.
I used just a few tools to make this card which includes: Card Stock, Markers, Designer Series Paper, Black StazOn Ink, 1/8" Taffet Ribbon and the stamp set 'So Very Grateful'.
The two pictures below show the outside and inside of the card I am sharing today.
An Easter card showing the joy that spring brings, a butterfly represents New Life at Easter time and the flowers we are all looking forward to see in our gardens. I had fun making this card, I haven't used the large butterfly stamp for about a year now.
We sprung ahead in time this month, does that mean the time is going around the clock at a faster speed?
I can't believe it is already March 11th! I love how my days are full, but I also feel I can't do all I want to do.
Well, I will enjoy the ride and take it as it is. I hope this post finds you in good health and spirit. Spring is on its way and the weather reminds us of that everyday. I am looking forward to the warm sunny days.
Today I will share another Easter card. What I like about this card is the versatility for any occasion you might need. A Thank You, Thinking of You or Birthday greeting would go well. Many of the ladies I stamp with save the greeting stamping until they know how they are going to use the card. Of course that means they need to have stamps in their possession. Building a word stamp collection is a good idea.
I used the 'Scallop Tag Topper Fold Technique' in making the card below, using the new tag punch. This is a popular technique among stampers and I thank the person (whoever you are) for coming up with this idea and sharing it. I used the stamp set 'Peaceful Petals' from the 'Celebrate The Everyday spring' catalog from Stampin Up. This card is great for the spring season.
The next card, located below, is another Easter card. I used an old retired Easter stamp, but you could substitute it with a current stamp. The flowers are stamped from the 'Flower Shop' stamp set found in the current Stampin Up catalog. I used the scissors to cut across the top of the flowers.
The picture below shows the inside of the card and how I repeated the same steps from the front of the card. There are different ways of using the flowers on this card. I gave the challenge to my stamping ladies yesterday to create their own design using the same materials and technique of stamping and cutting around the flowers. Everyone came up with a different looking card. I was proud of them. It was fun and a great learning lesson on designing a card.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you enjoyed it and will check back tomorrow for more ideas.

Oh, one more thing I need to share.
Yesterday I mentioned I am teaching classes at Hobby Lobby and my classes are full. Well, I need to correct that statement. My Friday night class, March 28th is full but I still have openings for the Thursday class, March 20th (10:00 am - Noon) and the Friday night class, March 14 (5:30 - 7:30) has 2 openings. So, if you are interested in taking part in these classes, please call me at 253- 941-8233 or e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org . You need to register for the class (no later than two days before the class meeting) so I can prepare all the materials. Hope to see you in a class.
I hope you have an enjoyable day.
Heart to You,
Hello! I hope you had a good week-end. I had a great experience meeting new people at Hobby Lobby this last Friday and Saturday. I am offering a day and night class at the store, so to inform people about the class, I set up a table for people to view my cards and sign up for the class. The night class was certainly a popular time for a class. I am please to say I have full classes and really look forward to teaching my new students.
I made this card for an up coming class I will be having this week with my new student. I wanted to make a card that is easy and quick using the 'Free' designer series paper I earned by buying $50. of products during the Sale -A-Bration special. I love this paper!! The name of the paper is 'Sweet 'Sorbet'. The stamp set 'Eggstra Spectacular', (# 133068 wood, # 133071 clear), is from the Spring 'Celebrate The Everyday" catalog.
You can earn free products this month during the special by placing a $50 order.

Heart to You,
I have created a wreath of my own,using punches, die cuts and the new Fringe Scissors. It looks very much like the Stampin Up Wreath in the new spring catalog, but is smaller and has different flowers.
A busy day but a fun day, so this is a short post. I do have to share with you, I have recruited 2 people this
past week!!!!!!!!!!!!! A Big and Happy 'Smile', along with a Thankful Heart, is my joy and appreciation these days. I can't wait to share all about Stampin Up!!
Good Day to You. Hope you enjoyed yesterday's Blog Hop.
Below is my Punch Art: Easter Card.
I am getting ready for Easter. My customers like to make their holiday cards way in advance, so we made the card below yesterday, during our stamping class. It took some time to make, but we were happy with the finish card. Most of the ladies have a child or grandchild to give it to, but I got a laugh, when one lady said, she was excited to give it to her 80 year old friend. We are never to old to enjoy Spring and Easter.
The base of the card is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. Insert the card stock into the paper trimmer at 3 inches and cut at the 1" inch mark to the 6 1/2" mark and then score at 1", 1 3/4", 3 1/2", 5" and 6 1/2 on the smaller side of the card stock. On the 3" side of the card stock score at 4 1/4". Decorate the card using your punches to create your flower and animals. Be sure to view my blog tomorrow for another project. Heart to You, Olivia
Welcome to our Blog Hop. We had fun designing our projects to share with you. Hope you enjoy visiting all the blogs, and they inspire you to create your own cards. All the projects in this Blog Hop are focess from products found in the 'Celebrate The Everyday' catalog, which is good from January 3 to June 1st.
My card below, one of many you will be able to see throughout the month, is a birthday celebration card.
I used the stamp set 'Another Great Year' found on page 34. There are five stamps in the set. You can buy it in wood (133038, $23.95) or clear (133041, $17.95). The main stamp is large, so you would need the E clear block . The new 'Fringe Scissors' was fun to use and I was surprised how easy and quick it was to complete the step. The scissors can be found on page 31, the # is 133325 for $9.95. I will be using this product on some future cards, so make sure you view my postings.. The last new item I want to mention is the super new 'Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper' on page 23 #132994 $10.95. I love all the sheets in this packet.
