Stand up for Spring

Happy Sunday everybody,

How are you enjoying the new Spring?  I've made an easel card today hence the post title!  :D

Our sponsors this month are:

 I used the lovely Rose Tag digi stamp from Bugaboo Digi Stamps and the Impression Obsession - Butterfly Set which can be found at Dies R Us for my card.  Let's take a look:

I coloured the image with colouring pencils, and smooth with a bit of solvent.  I prop it up on an easel card base covered with pattern paper.  Embellished with butterflies that's been die cut from Sookwang on white CS, then adhered with glitter.

Here's a couple of close up:


Bugaboo Digi Stamps: Rose Tag
Impression Obsession cutting die: Butterfly Set
Avery Elle stamp: Simply Said: Happy
Lawn Fawn cutting die: Stitched Labels
Colouring pencils
Memento Dye Ink (Tuxedo Black)
Elizabeth Craft Design Microfine Glitter (Diamond)

Wearing of the Green

I've combined Dies R Us and Bugaboo Digi Stamps to create a card to celebrate St. Patty's Day coming up on the 17th.  My sample card for the challenge this month was a fun one.  

I thought a little green beer wouldn't hurt anything.  I made this image a modern take using the cool grays instead of warming her up.  I think she's already warmed up with that beer.  
Happy St. Patrick's Day

A close-up of this darling below.

Welcome to our newest Team member

Hi there.  One of our team, Rebecca, has stepped down but we are now happy to welcome our latest member of the team.

Welcome Carol Gunn....
Carol Gunn

Here's a little about her.

"I am a silver haired wife, mother of four, and nonna of eight, living in Hamilton, New Zealand. I have been a crafter ever since I can remember; with my grandmothers and mother being crafters what chance did I have really?

I love working with paper and fabric, so on my blog you will see both aspects of my work. I don't seem to have a specific style (too easily distracted) and like to have a go if something takes my fancy. I hope you will enjoy the variety, and maybe be inspired to try something for yourself."

You can visit Carol at her blog  Carol G... CreationsNZ.  There is lots of amazing interesting projects and, as Carol told me, she loves to make at least one card a day, so there is lots to see.  Please give her a warm welcome. 

Here's a little sample of Carol's cards
