Tulips in a Flower Frame

Flowers Tulips Frame

This week was a very busy one for me and in between the chaos I found time to stamp just a couple of times.  However, last weeks Pals Blog Hop: Spring Is Here was what I called my 10th one hit wonder… LoL.  I’m working on my 11th, but I’ll need your help.  Emails continue to pour in about the Blessed Easter stamp I used.

The stamp set is in the 2014 Occasions Catalog, page 20 and I highly suggest you get yours now!  Also, my BFF Pam has challenged me to show you the versatility in this ONE stamp.  Can’t wait for you to see the other card I made already either… it’s crying out, “post me, post me, I’m next” LoL.

The snipping took the longest, but I know in my heart it will be loved once it is received by a very special friend of mine.  The picture below shows the inside of the card and the stamp I used for that is the Really Good Greetings Clear Mount, but you can write in it too.

A Very Bright Easter

One of my team members (Melanie Greenfield) once told me that her favorite color was green.  She said that green complimented all colors.  She was absolutely right!  Thanks Melanie for opening my eyes to color.  I LOVE the mix of these colors… they put me in a happy mood.  =)  The sentiment is in Spanish and translates to Happy Easter.

MaggieMade Tips:  A great way to spruce up a card without spending more money on ribbon is to simulate ribbon with a with paper.  I NEVER throw away any left over paper from a project for this specific reason.  I used a brown polka dotted paper to add a little extra slice of color between the pink lime green.   It somehow blends the two colors and give it an added “pop” to the card.

Blog Candy Give-a-Way:  Originally posted on April 1st, be ensured it was not an April Fools joke.  It is the “Sprinkled Expressions” clear cling stamp set from Sale-a-Bration. The clear-mount block is not included.  All you have to do is take a look at the new Summer Smooches and leave me a comment and tell me which products I should buy.  The winner will be chosen using the random number generator.  I really do want to give this awesome stamp set away…. will you help me?
