Hi there Stampin Friends! Welcome to our March Blog Hop featuring lots of Easter, Spring and soft pastel colors to inspire you! I can’t wait to see everyone’s creations! If you arrived from Leanne’s blog, WELCOME, and thank you for continuing with the blog hop! Isn’t she just amazing? I love her work- I love that her initials became her blog name “Literally My Joy”, isn’t that sweet? I got to meet Leanne last summer on my late night flight home from Convention in Salt Lake City, it was great meeting you Leanne! Hope to see you next month at OnStage!
We have three guest bloggers this month, be sure to check out their work (and remember to leave them a comment for the “Mystery Giveaway”):
Ready to see what I have created for you this month? Here is an assortment of projects that I created for this theme of welcoming spring by using soft pastels:
First up a card using the stamp “swallowtail” from the Stampin’ Up! annual catalog. I used my sponge daubers to sponge on pastel colors all over this butterfly. After I was happy with the color I hand cut this butterfly out, and using my bone folder, gave it some 3-D.
Next up I wanted to make another card using the Rose wonder bundle. This was a big hit at my stamp-a-stack class last month. It is so easy to remove the Rose piece from the die with the help of the new die brush and sponge pad, what a fantastic tool!!
The past few cards I have made with this technique were birthday cards, but I needed a special Easter card so I changed it up. Can you see the glimmer? The clear wink of Stella pen helped to glam this card up! I made this card by using the negative space from the card stock as my stencil to sponge on the pink and green ink for the background underneath the rose die.
Next up is my 3-D project I knew immediately I wanted to try my hand at a project that Erika Cerwin featured last spring on her blog using the intricate butterfly dies here on the curvy keepsake box. She made them in a variety of colors and they’re so beautiful. I followed her video and just added the wink of Stella clear glimmer pen over the vellum butterfly and on the circles made with the stencil and Stampin’ marker- can you see it?
So what did you think? I would love to hear from you, I adore reading all of your comments, it really makes my day!
Wishing you all a very Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and remember to leave a comment with the #SFMarhop to be entered into the drawing.
