It's finally beginning to feel like spring!  Yeah!  Here are our projects for May. 

Gate Fold Card (perfect for Dads and Grads):

Gate away

Gate close 2

We will stamp on foil with staz-on!  For the textured craft paper, we'll ink up the embossing folder, insert the craft paper and run thru the big shot.  The base card textured paper is heat embossed in white or black, then run thru the big shot with an embossing folder.  This card has plenty of textures!

Flower card:

So, it's an understatement to say I became LOST making this project.  That is a good thing!  Picture this: a mad scientist coming close to perfecting his invention…  stuff is scattered about and his hair is standing on end from static.  As someone walks into the door to his labratory, imagine the look on his face when you disturbed him.  Scarey image?  Okay, imagine me in my 'make-shift' stampin room – but I'll smile!  Wha-laa…  yup, this flower card project became that same scenario.  It started simple and grew… and grew…  You will have LOTS of choices!  I wanted to share spring flowers and colors.  The Stampin Up 2010-2012 'in colors' are going away.  They are perfect for spring flowers.  I could jabber on and on… how about I just share the photos:

The flower project looks so much better in person.  It's crazy fun to do too!  Hint: do the watercoloring 1st so it has time to dry.

Flowers peach island close
Bring an aqua painter if you have one. 

Notice the center of these big flowers is ribbon?  That is a know with the feet of the knot pulled thru a hole in the center of the flower. 

I could tell you many of the steps, but this post would be a mile long.  I look forward to seeing you this month. 

Happy Stampin,



PS-I'm sure you've seen the retired list of stamp sets and accessories.  Gosh, this is always a hard transition.  It's SO difficult to see everything going away.  I sorted thru my sets and accessories to bring everything to a Stampin Up Garage sale May 19th and gooolllhee, ouch!  Bad for me, great for shoppers!
