The sentiment on this card is from Suite Sayings, page 41 of the OC.  The background paper is English Garden DSP page 142 of the AC.  I used Mossy Meadow and Blushing Bride Card Stock.  The butterfly was cut out with the Butterfly Thinlits, page 172 of the AC and I used the Blushing Bride Glimmer paper.   In addition, I used the sequins from Love Blossoms embellishment kit, page 17 of the OC.

Not too soon to be thinking of Easter and this set, Easter Lamb, page 24 of the OC is so cute.  I embossed the image in white on Navy Blue and used the DSP background paper, English Garden, page 142 from the AC and the silver Metallic thread, also from same, page 159.

We demonstrators try to get together every couple of months and do what we call a SHOE BOX SWAP.  It is a sort of make and take that everyone brings so that we can all have hands on experience making a card designed by each demonstrator.  It is pretty amazing what all the demos come up with and tons of fun.
This month’s shoe box was catered by one of the Demos who also caters on the side along with being a flower designer for a local florist shop.  She is also an incredible artist and designs the coolest cards.  I have all her information if you are interested in having someone create the perfect wedding, Anniversary or birthday celebration.
This card below is my contribution to the shoe box.

The flowers on this card were from the Crazy About you Set on page 31 in the OC.  I used Lost Lagoon and punched them out with the Scalloped Circle punch and the new punch, Flower Medallion, on page 23.  The DSP is Something Borrowed on page 42.  The sentiments are from Indescribable Gift, page 35.

I was inspired to make this little treat box that was posted on Stampin’Connection by Demo Andrea Brewster.  I changed it up with the sentiment but used her same colors.  Thanks Andrea for your creative use of this die cut.

I know you probably thought I used Blendabilities to color this image but I did not.  I used an aqua painter and our dye based inks, Island Indigo, Early Espresso, Wild Wasabi and soft suede with Whisper White card stock.  In addition, I used a brayer and rolled the background paper, Irresistibly Yours, page 15 of the SABC, with Island Indigo.  It is a white background paper with embossed diagonal white lines.  When you brayer over it, the ink stays on the white paper but the embossed lines can be wiped off with a soft cloth because the ink will resists the areas embossed.  I used soft Sky ink to lay a color around my image and after painting the image I used a white gel pen to highlight.

I created this Easter card with the set called Happy Easter Bunny, page 35 of the OC and he is a happy little guy and so stinkin’ cute!  I used Blendabilites and DSP called Best Year Ever, page 4 of the SABC.  You can get this DSP FREE with a $50 purchase before tax and shipping.  I used the ribbon, same page that mathes this DSP.  It also has matching buttons.  Both the Ribbons and Buttons you can get FREE with a $50 purchase.  Such a Deal!
Did you know that you can choose as your FREE item from the SABC a package of Blendabilites?  You can read all about it and the colors available on page 20 of the SABC.  Contact me here if you do not have an SAB Catalog.

I just love this stamp.  It is one of our singles in the new catalog to be released on January 1st.  I have made several cards with it already, with and without the sentiment.  This is going to be a very popular stamp because it is so easy to color, with both markers, blender pens and aqua painter.
