Spring is in the Air with Daffodils

Happy Thursday!  Spring is clearly in the air and I wanted to share with you this pretty yet simple daffodil card.

I used this very versatile die set from Leane Creatief.  This die set has 14 pieces and allows you to  make two flowers in two sizes and two views.  It also includes the leaves, all at a very reasonable price of $18. Please, let me know if you want a set; and remember we  can easily ship this in a padded envelope to you!

And here is a picture of the die set:

Every year I pick up a bunch of daffodils at the supermarket and this year I was lucky to be able to do it for 2 weeks!  I always pick a bunch where the bulbs are mostly closed; this way they bloom for me at home and I get to enjoy them for a whole week!  When I made this card, I knew I wanted to take a picture of my vase of daffodils with my handmade card.  Hope you enjoy the look:

Now if you like this look, stop by on Saturday, March 28 for the Daffodil Card Make and Take.  

OR, you may decide to stay and make several cards in our Easter and spring cards class.

Either way you'll be ready for Easter if you do!

Thanks, have a wonderful day and celebrate; tomorrow is spring!

Supplies used:
Dies:  Leane Creatief Lea'bilities daffodils
Stamps:  Impression Obsession Happy Easter

Anja Large Oval Die and Two Cards

Happy Day Everyone!

Today I want to share with you two cards I made recently using the same Anja background die.  One card was an anniversary card for Maria & Gary (Can you believe that the kids celebrated their One Year Anniversary already?!?  Sometimes it feels like it was just yesterday we were all celebrating in sunny Barbados.  Would have loved to have been there this horrendous winter.)  OK, I guess I'm going off on a tangent -- so back to the cards --- The second card was a card for a baby shower that a friend had asked me to make for her.  And so here are the cards...

The layouts are pretty much self explanatory and I have to say the cards look very elegant.  Also, you can see I used Dee's "Love" die on both cards.

Supplies used:
Dies:   Anja's Large Oval, Dee's "Love" word die, Marianne's Baby carriage and baby pins, Impression Obsession Tags
Stamps:   Impression Obsession "On Your Anniversary", Stampin' Up "Happy Hour"
Punches:  Nellie Snellen flower punch and embosser, Marvy heart punch
Embossing folder:  Tattered Lace Itsy bitsy embossing folder
Other:  Viva Decor pearl pens, Stick on crystals for bling

Hope you're enjoying the wonderful spring weather!
And thanks so much for "stamping" by,
