Happy Good Friday everyone! I am happy that they are predicting nice weather for our Easter weekend - makes for a good family day! We are going over to the in-laws to watch all the kiddos hunt for eggs and to have a nice meal together.  We have not seen them in awhile so it should be nice.  And, I only have to make deviled eggs, and rolls so I am good, lol! I plan on spending a lot of this weekend stamping as well in order to get ready for two large events I have coming up!  Meanwhile, I wanted to share two more of the cards I made with the beautiful Four Frames stamp set and the Paisley Petals designer paper - I just love them! Remember, they are only on sale until the 30th of April - you won't see them again until the new catalog comes out in July!  This first one is made with a Whisper White base that I ran through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder - just love it! I used some Bravo Burgundy with the patterned paper, both of which I punched with the Scalloped Trim border punch.  The image and sentiment are stamped on Baha Breeze in Bravo Burgundy then punched out with the Designer Label punch.  And, I could not resist - I had to add a sweet little bitty clear heart button!  The ribbon is the gorgeous Whisper White organza ribbon - it adds a touch of elegance to any project you use it on! I tend to hoard this ribbon, it is just sooooooo pretty, lol! 
This second card focuses on the Pear Pizazz that you find in the patterned paper pack.  I just love how many beautiful colors you can use with this same paper - makes it really easy to create several different looks with the same paper! And, those big flowers are gorgeous, aren't they??!The base card is again Whisper White, but this time I used the Finial Press embossing folder.  I paired the patterned paper with some Baha Breeze and Peach Parfait card stock, and punched all three with the Eyelet Border punch.  The ribbon is the yummy Pear Pizazz twill ribbon - love how beautiful this ribbon is! The stamp I actually colored using my Peach Parfait and Pear Pizazz stampin' write markers - love how it turned out! I then punched it out with the Designer Label punch and added some rhinestones to make it pop! I am really enjoying playing with this paper and this stamp set - endless possibilities here, don't you think??!! If you like the items you see here, you can order them in my online store or send me an email and I will place your order for you! For all the details on this special, check out my post from yesterday where you can find all the details! I hope you all enjoy your wonderful Easter weekend - I will back on Monday with some more fun projects that I am making for the craft fairs! Until then, happy stamping!!
