Spring Flower Wreath: Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Thank you so much for visiting. 

Are you ready for Spring where you live? I sure am. I will admit that we've had a very mild winter, but there was a dusting of snow earlier this week that didn't impress me. I'm ready for green grass and sunshine!!! Well Mother Nature isn't delivering those things to Calgary soon, so I thought it was time spoil myself with a new Spring wreath.
I made these flowers with the Bouquet Bigz L Die and my Big Shot, as well as a selection of flower punches (there's a full supply list at the bottom of this post). The White Jute Ribbon makes a stunning bow that's just stiff enough to hold it's shape without looking like a crunchy, wired bow. 
This sentiment from the Hello Life stamp set is the perfect touch, and such a great reminder for everyone.

Now let's go visit my friend Barbara! I'm certain she has something amazing to share with us!
Happy Stampin'

Celebrate Today & Work of Art Card

 Hi friends. Happy Saturday! It's a DIY project weekend around here. I've got a quilt on the go, plus several pieces of string art, and of course some chalk painted mason jars. I'm a crafty girl to the core. :) If you want to check out the progress on all my projects make sure you follow me on Instagram

Today's card is another from my February Stamp Club. Yes yes, I know, I know. I'm BEHIND! But the good news is this is the last of the February Stamp Club projects and next week I'll have the March projects to share. 
The Celebrate Today stamp set and framelits are perfect paired with the Work of Art stamp set to make this fun scene. The brush strokes from the Work of Art set make the perfect grass and clouds. And well, you had me at ballon with the Celebrate Today set. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today. 
Happy Stampin'

Little Sunshine Card: Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Did you know that we share our creations with you every Wednesday night/Thursday on our blogs? Yep, we blog hop EVERY week. We also have our own Pinterest page. You should follow us. It makes us feel special.

On to the card I'm sharing today. It uses lots of fun things from both the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue and Annual Catalogue. Wondering where those cute hearts came from? Meet the Little Sunshine stamp set. I LOVE the chevron design!
I made the fab #CUTE using Simply Pressed Clay and the new Alphanumeric Clay Mold. What's great is you can colour the clay both before and after you've made your letters/numbers. I used the Gold Encore Metallic Ink to make mine super shiny.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Now head on over to my friend Barbara and see what she has to share!

Sheltering Tree Card

Hi friends. I'm still playing catch-up, so this card is another project we did at my February Stamp Clubs. There's so many reasons to love the Sheltering Tree stamp set, but that beautiful handwritten font is near the top for me.
This card is certainly the 'spring' version, but just switch up your ink and cardstock colours and this card easily transforms in to a fall or winter beauty.
Make sure you come back tomorrow to see the last of the February Stamp Club projects. :)


Registration deadline: March 15th

Happy Stampin'
