Embrace Life Flip Fold Card

After seeing some really cool projects done with this et, I finally ordered it. I saw a flap fold card featured on SCS and thought this set would be great for this project! I haven't used my blender pens for a while, so I pulled them out and colored in the flowers using them. I colored the whole flower using the Groovy Guava inkpad, then used the Ruby Red inkpad to add color to the edges. So here it is - hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by today!

Stamp Set: Embrace Life
Paper: Groovy Guava, Ruby Red, River Rock, Whisper White, Ginger Blossom DP
Inks: Basic Black, Groovy Guava, Ruby Red
Accessories: Groovy Guava Ribbon, Gold Brads, 1/16" Punch, Large Oval Punch, Blender Pen, Ticket Corner Punch, Coluzzle Template & Blade, Scissors, Stampin' Dimensional

Heartfelt Thanks

I had a little time today to stamp and thought I would try the SCS Misting with Markers challenge. I think this card turned out ok. I inked up the flower with the Pixie Pink marked then edged it with a Pink Passion marker. I then did the stem with a Gable Green marker and edges with a Green Galore marker. Then I lightly sprayed water on the stamp and quickly stamped three flowers. I then inked up another flower using the Pixie Pink and Pink Passions markers, lightly sprayed the stamp and stamped on the white cardstock (layered over the Barely Banana c/s). I used the Mat Pack and a needle to do the holes at the corners. Here's what I used:

Stamp Set: Heartfelt Thanks
Inks: Pink Passion inkpad, Markers: Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Green Galore, Gable Green, Barely Banana
Cardstock: Whisper White, Barely Banana, Pink Passion
Accessories: Gold Cording, Mat Pack, Needle, 1/16" Punch, Large Oval Punch, Sponge, Stampin' Dimensionals

Vase with Rub Ons

I found a vase that I bought at a garage sale many years ago and thought I would try to dress it up on with some Stampin' Up! Rub Ons! I also put one on the candle. I had to rub the candle with some paper towel before the rub on would stick to it. Have a blessed Easter everyone - had to believe it's spring with 6 inches of snow on the ground today!!!
