Today's card is inspired by my kids who have been tring to catch a tricky little leprechaun lately; and we all know that it is the leprechaun who hides his pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. So if you have not made a St. Patrick's Day card, what are you waiting for, here is a card that you can make using the rainbow of colours you have on hand.
Today's project was designed by fellow demonstrator Susan Easter. It uses the stampin' markers and blender pen to colour in the fabulous card. I had a customer that saw this card and wanted to learn how to do it, so we made this card with a group of her friends.
Stamp: Birthday Blooms
Paper: Whisper White, Blushing Bride, Mint Macaron CS, Birthday Bouquet DSP
Ink: Memento Black, Mint Macaron, Blushing Bride
Accessories: Blender Pen, Wink of Stella, White Gel Pen, Bitty Banner Punch
Adhesive: Snail, Stampin' Dimentionals
Today's technique features embossing folders. I used the hexagon embossing folder to emboss the card stock, plus a bunch of the Cherry of Top paper stack DSP. I then cut out the small inside hexagons from the DSP so they were the size I needed and glued them into the embossed background. Since this was a Birthday card for my husband I thought it was fitting to include some of the "wood spaghetti" he was creating, rather than use some ribbon or twin. I think it added a bit more of a masculine touch too.

It was such a great use of the honeycome embellishments and the coordinating Sale-a-bration stamp set Honeycomb Happiness, and our fabulous Birthday Bouquet DSP that I just had to re-create the card. I chose to make a Vanilla ice cream cone, however you could also make strawberry or mint, or use the Stampin' Spritzer to create your favourite flavour.
Welcome, today's technique is a 3D project. This Easter basket that was made using the envelope punch board.
Start with a 6 x 6 pie e of paper and punch and score at 1 3/8" & 4", rotate 90 degrees and line up your score lines as punch and score the other 3 sides. You will end up with 2 sides that have larger triangle points then the other. Cut up this side to the score line, and fold to make the basket. Decorate and punch handles with the petite petal punch. These are quick and easy to make and would look great on your table this Easter.
This project was created as I needed a hostess gift for a workshop I recently did. The host chose to base her party around the Birthday Bouquet suite, so I wanted here hostess gift to match. These little 3 x 3 cards are quick and simple to make and are great when you need just a little card for a gift or a quick thank you. I even used the envelope paper and envelope punch board to create coordinating envelopes.
Today's card is inspired by a card that was in a Stampin' Up! Newsletter. I just love this DSP that you get for FREE with your $60 order (before shipping and taxes). If you have not had a chance to order this or the other limited time Sale-a-Bration items, today is the last day they are available. Tomorrow there are 3 more items available that I know you are just going to want to have as well. Come back tomorrow to check out the new products.
With Valentine's day only a few days off I couldn't resist making these cute little hand bags. They measure only 2 1/2". They are the perfect size for a pair of earings, or chocolates for that someone special. The neat thing about this project is that you can make it any size you want easily as it is made from the square box that the gift box punch board makes.This project was from another Demonstrator Elaine Jackson, she has a made a video tutorial of this project you can check out here. I chose to latch mine closed by using a mini brad.
