Hi Crafters!

Happy Spring!  The days are slowly becoming warmer and the extra hour of daylight are certainly wonderful.  This month we are celebrating friends as we create our card projects.  I absolutely love our first card:

WP_20180308_13_01_02_Pro 1Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts is indeed sweet!  I love the flower cart brimming with blossoms.  In this image, the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folder has actually been debossed on the crumb cake layer versus being embossed.  Debossing gives a different texture to the card stock.  The flower cart is colored with Stampin’ Blends and layered on a colored scalloped circle.


WP_20180308_14_07_28_Pro 1The art piece is then layered onto a crisp white doily which is popped up on the card front.  A bit of ribbon adds both texture and fun to the card.  One of the messages with this limited time stamp set reads “Beauty blooms where you are”.  I think this is a great sentiment for those friends who are near and dear to us. 



WP_20180308_15_01_40_Pro 1I love how the bright springy colors make this card “pop.”  There are so many combinations we could go with.  Note how this card and the one above have been embossed with the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folder versus the debossed version in the first card. Also,  Wink of Stella adds glimmer to all 3 samples


WP_20180308_12_56_52_Pro 1I think this message stamp from “Friendship’s Sweetest Thought’s” is perfect for those friends we hold dear to us.  “Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts blossom In The heart.”  How absolutely perfect.  Note the addition of the flower bench and the small flower in the corner.  These stamps add so much to the message layer.

So, in case you’ve forgotten, April Stamp Camp will be held on Thursday, April 5th from 1 – 7 PM, on Friday, April 6th from 2 – 7 PM, and Saturday April 7th from 9 AM to 4 PM.  Note the starting time on Thursdays is one hour earlier than listed on the calendar.  This was due to a request from several crafters to start earlier on Thursdays.  The cost remains $12 for our 4 cards.  If you choose to do extra cards, the cost is $2 for each. 

Looking forward to seeing you!  Rosemary – (home)630/759-3089 – (cell)630/965-1965 –
