Going in circles

Kinda describes my life right now! Trying to use up some of my SAB stuff, this one was easy peasy with punches, DSP, and sticky cardstock elements!

Put Me In Coach

Ahhh Spring, time for baseball, tree climbing, hiking, and all other things "boy." This was a club project for a boy's b'day card, seems like everyone has problems with pre-teen/teenage boys! So it was Woodland Walk DSP to the rescue with a freehanded baseball bat with linen thread on the handle, a punched baseball with Real Red marker stitching, and a red crimped paper strip - Hope you likey!

Watercolor Splendor

Another April CC challenge was to use watercoloring. I made a watercolor wash background and added dimension by using Crystal effects on my coneflowers. All supplies are Stampin' Up!

Happy Easter

I love vintage images! I used this old vintage postcard image to make Easter cards in My Ditigal Studio. The background is the MDS exclusive Springtime Splendor DSP.

From my family to yours, have a joyous Easter!

All Because Of Blueberry Crisp

This month the Creative Crew was challenged to use the DSP Blueberry Crisp. Now I must admit, this particular DSP is not my normal cup of tea, however I'm pretty pleased with this ensemble overall - Thanks for Looking!

Recycled Signs

I've had these wooden signs a while. Originally they had a vintage bathroom theme on them. I stripped that off, repainted them, mod podged the Woodland Walk DSP, added the Decor Element word, some older SU twill ribbon & felt flowers, then some charms and punches for embellishments. I think I may give this to my niece as a house warming gift ;)

Wedding Cake Inspired

The Fan Club inspiration this month is a lovely wedding cake! I literally cased the cake! I used the Bella Toile, and Short & Sweet sets, Black & White cardstock and ink, added some Ribbon, punches, & Pearls. Ben ended up stealing this card for his best friend's wedding :_

Popping Daffodil

Most people think of red when doing Black & White with a "pop" of color - I love Yellow with it (which is about the only time I like yellow!) Daffodil Delight is a nice yellow to play with! I don't remember where the ribbon is from but I knew I wanted the ruffled Organdy you get when you "melt" the ribbon with your heat tool. Everything else on this card is SU!
