HAPPY ALMOST SPRING

March is right around the corner and we have had some beautiful weather.  Our March Stamp Camp will feature a bit of spring and Easter.  It appears I will be out of circulation for April Stamp Camp, so we are going to do Easter cards in March.  However, as long as you let me know by Tuesday, February 28th, you can choose the cards you wish to do – and maybe you won’t want to do Easter.  Dates/times for March Stamp Camp are Thursday March 2nd from 2 – 9 pm, Friday March 3rd from 2 – 9 pm, and Saturday March 4th from 9 am – 4 pm.  I do ask you to let me know if you are going to come in the 6-9 pm time frame so that I can fix my mother’s dinner prior to your arrival.  On to the first card:

FullSizeRenderThis card comes from the “Special Reason” stamp set and the Stylish Stems Framelits.  The Blushing Bride card is accented with Rose Red flowers framing the Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper background.  Smoky Slate DSP from the Carried Away pack provides background interest.  Flecks of color speckle the background and the white doily peeking thru softens the overall effect.  I added rhinestones in the flower centers and several throughout the card.  This is a beautiful card for almost any occasion. 

 

 

 

 

FullSizeRender 1The second sample was actually my first card and I tweaked the measurements of the DSP just a bit.  The main difference between the two samples is the glimmer paper background for the Rose Red flowers.  Blushing Bride was used in this sample and the overall card appears darker.  It is actually more attractive than it looks.  The embellishments in the lower right corner are also a bit different.  These embellishments add weight to the right side of the card helping with balance. 

This card is not difficult or time consuming.  The flowers and leaves die cut easily.  You just need to insure you use sufficient liquid glue to insure the Rose Red flower will adhere to the roughness of the glimmer paper. 

So guess what our next card will be?  It’s a new fold that several of you have asked for!  Don’t forget to let me know when you will be coming and what cards you wish to do.  $12 for 4 and $2 for each card beyond that.  See you in a bit.
