Hearts A Flutter - More Amore

Only 10 more days to the end of the Spring Catalogue!

I LOVE the Designer Builder Brads in the 2013 Spring Catalogue!  I made the card on page 12 of the catalogue.  I also love the dimension the brads and butterfly give.

Paper is More Amore (page 10) and there is a wee bit of stamping to make the brad centres.  To make the hearts for the centre, I used the Hearts a Flutter stamp set (page 11) and punched it out with the circle from the Itty Bitty Shapes pack.  The rounded pennants were die cut with the Hearts A Flutter Framelits Dies also on page 11.  

The sentiment is from Oh, Hello on page 4.  I used my Basic Grey marker and coloured just the "thanks".    There's also a new Bitty Butterfly punch  (page 13) which made a lovely centre piece!

Here's a closer look at the Designer Builder Brads

Stippled Blossoms - Hamilton Regional 2012 Swap

The 2012 Hamilton Stampin' Up! Regionals seems like such a long time ago, but I have been meaning to post the wonderful swaps that I got while there.

This one is by Lisa Cheney.  She came all the way from Nova Scotia to join in on the fun.  I sat with her at convention and it was fun getting to know her a little.  Her work is lovely to say the least.  I love her card and the colours she used.  It is so pretty.

Lisa was kind enough to include the they are:

Stamp Set:  Stippled Blossoms
Paper:  Comfort Cafe DSP, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White, Island Indigo
Inks:  Baja Breeze, Island Indigo, Wild Wasabi and Always Artichoke
Accessories:  Delicate Designs folder, Delicate Doilies Sizzlets, 2 12" circle punch, Dazzling Details and Island Indigo Ruffled ribbon.

I don't own this stamp set so it's great to have a sample!
Thanks Lisa!

Happy Stamping...
