Dress with an Apron.

I love how velum looks like on top of designer series paper. So I thought how nice it would be to create an Apron on top of a dress. So here is my card.

This card is an easel card which means when you open it it stands up. I love how it looks if you would like directions to the card check out the link at splitcoaststampers

Vacation was wonderful!

Wow Vacation was wonderful! I spent last week In Florida with my Mom and Mother in Law. It was wonderful to see them Ann spend time catching up. It was also wonderful to get out of the snow up north! While it wasn't hot by any means, walking the beach and soaking up the rays was wonderful!
This card is one we did at this month's stamp ten groups and I will be doing this Thursday night with my open stamping night!


Paper Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay, Whisper white
Ink Bermuda Bay, Old Olive, Certainly celery
Stamps Great friend
Accessories Curly label Punch, Soft Suede Polka dot ribbon, perfect polka dots embossing folder, Certainly celery, Old olive and Bermuda Bay reinkers

The technique to get the butterfly multi colored is the baby wipe technique. You fold a baby wipe to create a stamping pad. Place it on top of a plastic container(new acrylic blocks work great). Using Certainly celery, Old olive and Bermuda Bay reinkers, drop ink on top of baby wipe to make multi colored stamp pad

Thanks for looking Virginia

Paper Craft Sampler Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Paper Crafters Sampler Easter Bonnet Hop.

Paper Craft Sampler (PCS) is a digital magazine that I am a designer for.

The PCS design team was given a challenge to create an Easter bonnet. The Sampler is an online publication featuring projects using Stampin’ Up! products based on themes, typically seasonal and holiday. The February issue, Baskets, Bunnies and Bonnets focuses on the upcoming Easter Holiday.

The template used by the design team was designed exclusively for the upcoming February issue of Paper Crafters Sampler. Be sure you check out the sampler and sign up by February 10th and your name will be entered in our monthly drawing for $15.00 of Samplers bucks. One lucky winner will be randomly selected on February 11th.

For more information on our February issue, follow this link. Design Team members get credit from the moderator for all referrals, so please use the code: PCSvk.

I made a hat from one of the tutorials featured this month by Melanie Schulenberg, The editor. Isn't it adorable! What a great project for Easter and the template can be easily used for other holidays.
