Spring Pinwheel

Here is another pinwheel card we made at my Hostess Club a last week. I posted another pinwheel card a few months ago and you can see it here. For this card I used the Razzleberry Lemonade DSP and the card base is Razzleberry. The scallop oval and base for my pinwheel is Melon Mambo cardstock. These are fun to make and so easy!

I want to say thank you to all of the military men and women who served and are serving our country. Thank you so much.

Second Stencil Card

Here's another card using the Elegant Trio stencil. This time I used Elegant Eggplant and Rose Red. I think this is such a beautiful combination. Both colors are so vivid and it is quite striking. I also used the Perfect Polka Dots impression folder. This embossing folder was in the Occasions Mini catalog but can still be ordered (#117335). I love this folder and have used it for so many of my cards. It just adds such an extra touch to the card. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me (see the email button on the right side of my blog). If you would like to place an order you can also email me or go directly to my Stampin' Up! website. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Elegant Flower

I have been so busy this month and my blog has been neglected. I am a teacher and between Open House and report cards, I haven't had a chance to play with my stamps like I would like to! I did have a Hostess Club meeting last week though and created this card for it. I used a stencil from the 2010 Definitely Decorative insert called Elegant Trio (page 11). You receive 3 stencils for $9.95. I used our sponge daubers to apply the ink from my stamp pad. I had a lot of fun making this! Tomorrow I will show you another card using the same stencil. Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Thank you for stopping by!
