SF March Hop - EASTER

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Easter Blog Hop!  This month we have 2 amazing guest hoppers that you should DEFINITELY check out - Mandy Reedyk and Sue Vine.  I had so much fun creating these projects for this month's hop.  I love Spring and it has it has Sprung for sure here in Prescott - just look at these beautiful blossoms on my Ornamental plum tree. 
So I was inspired by the gorgeous pink and here's what I came up with.  The first picture is a bit washed out - but I wanted to show the two projects side by side.
But this photo shows the coloring more accurately.  I used two of the projects that you can get free till March 31 during Stampin' Up!'s Sale-a-bration.  Products are listed at the end.  They came together beautifully.  I started by sponging color randomly over the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper - then punched out a partial circle and layered it on Bermuda Bay cardstock and the white base.  Finally I cut out the butterfly from our SAB Glimmer paper on the Big Shot and adhered with a glue dot and added a few gems.


The little treat bag was sponged the same way and the butterfly adhered the same way.  After I added a few little treats to it, I closed it with a mini paperclip and a bit of glimmery ribbon.  I used the pattern information from Lynn Ellis on her blog HERE.

I'm just so happy with how they turned out.  We'll be making this card at my Wine and Design class tonight- and I hope the ladies like it too.  If you want to know how you can get the Inside the Lines DSP or the Pastel Glimmer Paper FREE - be sure to contact me and I'll get you all the information - but remember - this opportunity ends 3/31/17.  Now be sure to continue on the hop by clicking the names below! You’re at Maureen Rauchfuss’ post to help orient yourself.  ~Maureen
