Today is Stamp-4-Fun hosted by my SU! demonstrator Donna Henley. I am really looking forward to it. July 1st I am signing up to be a SU! Demonstrator myself and I can't wait! There are so many benefits to being a demonstrator!

I made 10 swap cards for today's event. I used Kraft as my base (also known as Crumb Cake as of July 1st). I used Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red (a retired in-colour returning July 1st) and of course whisper white. The stamp set is Eastern Blooms. I cut the flowers out and popped them up. I also added Crystal effects in the middle of each flower which I'm sure is difficult to see. The small piece of riding hood red across the middle is embossed on my Big Shot using texture plates #4 from SU! The ribbon is also riding hood red. The sentiment is from One of a Kind. Enjoy and have a Happy Saturday!

For All You Do

Hello All:

This morning I finally had some free time to sit down and make an Easter card for my Mom. I made a 6 x 6 easel card (great instructions here).

My newest stamp set from SU - For All You Do has quickly become a favourite of mine. The sentiment is from "Well Scripted" from the Occasions Mini. I used Cottage Wall DP and for cardstock I used old olive, rich razzleberry, orchid opulence and whisper white. The scalloped circles are a spellbinders die which I cut and embossed on my Big Shot. I have a small butterfly punch and I used the DP to cut a few out and added some pearls from my "Pretties Kit". I also embossed the orchid opulence flowers although it's hard to tell from the pictures. The ribbon is rich razzleberry.

I am hosting Easter dinner on Sunday for 12 people so I will give my Mom the card then. In the meantime, I hope she doesn't check out my Blog and spoil the surprise!

Have a great day and Happy Easter All!
