This card was a little more challenging, so I didn't want to use it for card nights, but I knew my Club gals would be up to the challenge. So we made this tonight along with the St. Patty's Day mint I posted earlier. They were treated to frosted brownies afterwards thanks to Becky!
This card uses a Basic Grey base layered with a piece of Whisper White Cardstock. We used a template and punched out a circle using the 1 1/4" Circle Punch. We used the Send Me Soaring stamp set from the Occasions Mini-one of my favorites! We stamped the clouds in Pool Party and used Blender Pens to color them in. We used Basic Grey ink to stamp the sentiment.
Next, we used the Mat Pack template to add the dotted lines with the Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade Markers. We punched a strip of Pool Party and some DSP with the Scallop Border Punch. The Small Heart Punch was used on the Lucky Limeade cardstock at the bottom.
Then we used the 3" Circle Die to cut out a circle with the Big Shot and attached it to the Basic Grey cardstock with a Mini Brad. We then stamped 3 different kites in different colors through the circle window, so you can turn the circle to see different kites-so cute!
Finally, we punched out a couple of Pool Party hearts and put a white brad through the center of each. We put half a dimensional behind them and attached them to the back of the envelope. We wrapped a piece of Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine around the hearts for a cute alternative on the envelope.
We had a great time getting together tonight. I hope you enjoyed the card! Thanks for coming by and make sure to check back tomorrow for a 'sweet' project. Thanks so much!

I started with a Very Vanilla base and added a Baja Breeze layer which I ran through the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. I ran a sponge over it with Soft Suede ink to age it a bit. I used the Top Note Die in Soft Suede and tucked it under the Baja Breeze Cardstock. I punched a strip of So Saffron with the Lace Ribbon Border Punch, and stuck the banner on top of it.
I stamped the heart image in Basic Grey on Watercolor Paper and colored it in with Watercolor Wonder Crayons. I used Blender Pens to smooth it out a bit and then spritzed it with Shimmer Paint mixed with alcohol. I then ran it through the Big Shot using the brand new Hearts Framelit Dies.
I added a Baja Breeze Seam Binding bow with some Crochet Trim underneath. I added a Basic Pearl to the bottom and that's about it. I'm feeling a little guilty about missing a couple days of posting, so here's a few extra pictures I want to share with you.

It has a Crumb Cake base, with a piece of paper from the Sweet Shop DSP-LOVE this Product Suite-it's a sweet suite! ha ha. Next we used the line image from the Send Me Soaring set for the flower stem. We stamped the polka dot kite image in Lucky Limeade and then punched out the leaf shape using the 1 1/4" Circle Punch.
Next, we punched out 3 flower shapes in Calypso Coral using the Triple Flower Punch-I don't think that's what it's called, but I'm too lazy to go look! On top of that, we stamped 4 polka dot kites again, this time in Calypso Coral, and punched them out with the Small Heart Punch-again, don't quote me on that. We put some Dimensional halves on the back and stuck them to the Calypso flowers. We tied some Baker's Twine in a Bitty Button and attached it to the center with a Glue Dot.
We added a strip of DSP from the Berry Blossoms paper and punched it with the Scallop Border Punch. The sentiment was stamped in Pool Party on Whisper White and punched out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch, with a 1 3/8" Calypso Coral circle behind it.
We added a loop of Pool Party Ruffled Ribbon and some faux stitching with our white gel pen, and Calypso Coral Marker on the smaller circle. The Sweet Shop DSP and stamp set Send Me Soaring can both be found in the Occasions Mini. But they're only available through April 30! Well I'm off to make some cards-YAY! Thanks for stopping by. Stay warm!

I stamped 4 of the heart images in Lucky Limeade onto Whisper White Cardstock and cut them out. I layered a piece of the SAB Everyday Enchantment DSP onto a piece of Pool Party Cardstock that I punched with the Scallop Edge Border Punch. I stamped the shamrock image from Got Treats? and punched them out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch, and tucked them under the DSP. I wrapped some Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine around it and adhered it to a Whisper White base.
Next, I stamped the sentiment in Lucky Limeade and punched it out with the Modern Label Punch. I stuck a piece of Old Olive Dotted Scallop Ribbon under the shamrock as a stem and added a Brights Button in the center with a knot of Lucky Limeade Baker's Twine. Make sure to stop back tomorrow for another card. But before I go, I had to share a few photos of Quinten, who is 2 months old today:
Now you know why I don't get anything done all day! Have a great night!
