April 16, 2016 Card Class

Here's the cards my stamping group made for April. Since Stampin' Up! is promoting #imbringingbirthdaysback I thought I would do the same with this collection of cards.

I CASEd this sunny card from Pinterest, but it didn't have a watermark on it. 
The source I believe is
The materials used were the thick Whisper White cardstock, Crushed Curry cardstock and heavy vellum, Tree Builder punch to make the clouds, the Sunburst Thinlits Die, Circle Framelits, Hello stamp set from the recent Sale-A-Bration promotion, and It's My Party Designer Series Paper plus The Big Shot die machine. Crushed Curry ink, Basic Black Archival Ink and a Rhinestone Jewel to top it off. The only non SU item was the vellum adhesive tape. Unfortunately I've had that so long I don't remember where I purchased it.

I CASEd the layout from but changed up a few materials and increased the size of the rose to the larger one from the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies. Those dies coordinate with the Rose Wonder Stamp set. The color theme is Pool Party, Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Mossy Meadow, Watermelon Wonder plus the lovely floral from Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper pack. You'll also need the Blushing Bride ribbon from the Love Blossoms Embellishment kit, the small flower punch from Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Pearl Jewels, Fine Tip Glue Pin, Dimensionals and your Big Shot machine.

I was inspired by many cards on Pinterest that used the Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper. This is the easiest card to make! You need Mint Macaron cardstock, Basic Black cardstock, two pieces (rose and lace) from the Timeless Elegance DSP, a sponge dauber, Mint Macaron ink, and the Mint Macaron Lace ribbon. Just sponge lightly over the roses in your choice of location until you achieve your desired darkness of ink. Assemble the layers and tie the lace. The greeting I used was from Circle of Spring stamp set stamped in Black Stazon ink.

My card's layout was inspired by Barb Mullikin of
This drapery fold is so lovely and really popular now plus it is not too hard to do. You'll just need your Score Board to make it happen. The color scheme is Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Old Olive and Lost Lagoon. The Designer Series Paper is Wildflower Fields from the recent Sale-A-Bration promotion. You can't see it in the photo, but I used the Stripes embossing folder on the Blackberry Bliss paper for added texture. The stamp set is Watercolor Words. The flower and leaves are fussy cut and assembled before attaching it to the Lost Lagoon ribbon. The flower center is a polka dotted brad that's about 4 years old I had in my collection.

Hope you are having a sunny spring and enjoying making pretty cards like these. Thanks for stopping by!
