The new Cross of Hope Framelits Dies are beautiful. There are four (4) cross dies of varying sizes, but I must say this one is my favorite. It’s a beautiful filagree cross, and it seems appropriate to be cut from Whisper White card stock 🙂
The background of the front of this card is a piece of the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. And, I have good news about this fabulous paper…it’s continuing into the new annual catalog! Yeah! I love it and if you’ve used it I know you feel the same!
When I look at these photos, the card almost looks like the front of a Bible! I didn’t intend that at all, but I have to say I love the way ti turned out. The flowers at the base of the cross are from the Blooming Basket stamp set which is a FREE gift during Sale-a-Bration (Blooming Basket Bundle is free with a minimum $100 purchase through March 31).
The flowers from the Blooming Basket Bundle were colored with the wonderful Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. Oh wow are these great markers. Each color comes in a light and a dark shade and you can get a set of each color including both shades! The leaves behind the flowers were punched with the Leaf Punch.

Happy Monday my friends! I’ve been really liking the new Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and find that I’m using it over and over! Today it created a great textured background for my floral Easter card ~ and I love it in Pool Party blue!
Of course any Easter card has to have pretty pastels! My color theme came from the triangle sheet of Petal Garden Designer Series Paper that’s layered on top of the basket embossed panel. I just began to build on that with some florals.
The beautiful white cross is really the centerpiece of the card. It’s created by a beautiful die from the Cross of Hope Framelits set. It’s really a classic die set and I’ll be keeping it for a long time 🙂

Oh boy! Over the past weekend I was able to get the new 2017-18 Annual Catalog early AND order some items!! Well, I got a big box from the UPS man today and whee–fun stuff was inside! I want to show you a few sneak peeks from my box 🙂 I’ve mixed a bit of the new with a bit of the retiring items!
So, what’s new? Can you spot the items? First, the sentiment is punched out with a brand new punch called the Pretty Label Punch (it really is pretty!). Do you see the Gold Faceted Gems? Big and bold and bling – love them!! And then finally, there’s a brand new In Color cardstock called Powder Pink. It’s a gorgeous color and seems to be almost a neutral…it blends with anything. Here on my card it forms the panel behind the dsp and the punched label.
Now for the retiring items. 🙂 The sentiment is from the Suite Sentiments set. It’s a lovely sentiment and all of the stamps in the set are great. And the fonts are really nice! If you need a good sentiment set, this is one worth getting.
The paper has been one of my favorites from the Occasions Catalog, it’s the Cupcakes & Carousels dsp (right now 40% OFF!), and the bigger label with gold is from the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishments Kit (right now 30% OFF!).

Oh my goodness, look at these cute eggs! I can’t even stand it they’re so adorable! And they have personalities…look at the feet!
I’m just now starting to play with the Hey Chick stamp set. It’s one of the FREE Sale-a-Bration stamp sets that you can only get with an order of $50 or more from Stampin’ Up! All I can tell you is that you’ve got to get this adorable set! It’s going to be perfect for all of our Easter and spring cards 🙂
The egg basket was created with a die from the Window Box Thinlits (the basket base) and the oval Stitched Shapes Framelits. The basket was stamped with one of the stamps from the Delicate Details stamp set.
I can see I’m going to have lots of fun with this set. What about you? Have you gotten this set yet? 🙂
