Fabulous Spring Cards with Feels Good stamp set

The flowers are finally blooming around town here in the Pacific Northwest and the sun is coming out more often than not… so how about some fun ideas for ways to bring the colors and feeling of the gardens outside into your craft room?  Its like a mailable garden!  🙂

Both of these cards are ones I received as swaps and they are the reason I decided I had to the the Feels Good stamp set.  Both also use the ribbon that I love – Ruffled In Color Ribbon.  Don’t forget – this ribbon is retiring at the end of the month, so if you love it like me, you might want to snag a roll or two before they sell out and are gone for good!

Love the ruffled ribbon and the use of the Pop Up Posies kit.  This kit is only available through the end of the month as well as part of the Spring Catalog!

I thought this was so clever to cut out the oval from from the front of the card using the Oval Framelits and then add the flowers and leaves from the Secret Garden stamps & framelits.

And again… can we all shed a tear for that super cute ribbon going away?

Ok, I’m dabbing my eyes but I love these cards and am grateful for these talented demonstrators sharing these swaps!

Our Snowy Snowy Vacation

Just when I was sad that we didn’t get any snow in Seattle this year, I learned the day before our trip to Kansas that a winter storm was due shortly after we arrived in town.  And we got in, went to bed, and woke up to tons of snow!

While Caitlin wasn’t too sure about it (when the snow is above your knees, it’s kind of hard to get around!); Nicholas loved stomping around!

So, we’ve been a bit busy watching and playing in the snow and visiting family this week. 

For all of you in the Midwest being affected by this storm, I hope you are all safe and staying nice and warm!  And if you are on the coasts…. well, I’ll throw a snowball on your behalf.  Smile 

In the meantime, I thought I’d share a bright and cheery card I received at a swap at Leadership.  I love how Kim mixed and matched the bright colors and did the super pretty emboss-resist technique with the Secret Garden stamp set!

So, enjoy!  And I’ll be back tomorrow with a fun treat box idea for you!
