HAPPY MONDAY - LOTS TO SHARE TODAY!

Hi all!! I hope you had a good weekend - mine was FABULOUS!!! I really enjoyed some quality time with my husband, not doing chores, or yard work, or running around. It was really nice!! I even had time to do some stamping, and I am going to share some of what I did today! This first card is made using Jen's SFYTT - loved this sketch! I wanted to use my new hostess set called God's Beauty because I really love the saying that goes with this, and I know the friend I am sending this to will like it too! (sorry for the funny angle of this pic, makes everything look crooked) The butterfly in this set is awesome....I decided to emboss mine with Iridescent Ice and I really like how it turned out! Here is the recipe for this card!
Card Recipe:
Paper - Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Baha Breeze, Whisper White card stock, Rainbow Sherbet Designer Series paper
Inks - Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, Black Stazon stamp pads
Stamps - God's Beauty
Accessories - 1/2 inch circle punch, 2/3 inch circle punch, fire circle rhinestones, Baha Breeze double-striped ribbon, ticket corner punch, versamark, iridescent ice, heat gun, buttons, stampin' dimensionals
This next card uses the sketch posted Limelight Papercrafts that also wants you to use something fuzzy or furry! I used some on my little bunnies tail although it's kind of hard to see it here...it looks really cute IRL because I also added a touch of bling (I couldn't help myself!) I also made a matching little treat bag using my new Scallop Bag die for my Big Shot. I thought it would make a nice hostess gift for my workshop on Wednesday! I used a lot of bright, fun colors on these two because they remind me so much of Easter and Spring! And, I used my new set from the upcoming Spring Mini called An Eggcelent Easter, which has the cutest little bunny images! Here is the recipe for these two!
Card and Bag Recipe:
Paper - Green Galore, Summer Sun, Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White card stock, Pink Flamingo Designer Series Paper
Inks - Black Stazon, Green Galore, Pretty in Pink, Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Write Markers
Stamps - An Eggcelent Easter
Accessories - Eyelet Border Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, Circle Scallop Punch, Square Scallop Punch, Mat Stack and paper piercer, Pumpkin Pie narrow grosgrain ribbon, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie brads, Crop-a-Dile, Scallop Bag Bigz Die for Big Shot, Wide Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Designer Label Punch, Boho Blossoms Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today - make sure and check back tomorrow, I have some fun workshop projects to share!! Enjoy your day!!
