First up, a fresh and fun Easter card with the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set and just a knot of ruffled ribbon!  Lucky Limeade, Old Olive Whisper White and Pretty In Pink card stock were used in this first card along with Lucky Limeade and Melon Mambo ink pads.2.tiny pearl jewels and blossom punched leaf wedges

Teeny Tiny pearl jewels were added to the center of the large blossom punch and background stamped blooms.  Leaves behind the blossom are actually an wedges of the blossom punch cut from lucky limeade card stock!3.tinyPearls_and_Stmapin_Dimensional_accents

The leaf wedges were attached to the back of the blossom punched flower, and then to the stamped whisper white card stock with a stampin’ dimensional aka pop dot.low_profile_usps_Friendly

The overall profile is quite flat as the teeny tiny pearls almost disappear into the blooms.5.up_in_The_Air_Fresh_And_Fun_Colors

Don’t you just love this occasions mini hostess stamp set “Up In The Air”?   LOL, the title sounds like it’s about hot air balloons, or planes!  Love the blooms and butterflies and use this image often!torn wisteria wonder embossed card stock and fresh celery ribbon

Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White, Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery are crisp and fresh colors for spring.  The Wisteria Wonder card stock was embossed using petals-a-plenty embossing folder, then torn along the long edge.simple_up in the air image and simple coloring great seniors card

Every now and then I break out my retired pure color pencils… I wish SU still carried them, love the way the color flows onto card stock.  LOL, if you color outside the lines it’s easy to remove the color with an ordinary eraser too!

Tomorrow I’ll be back with a new Super Saturday Tutorial… and now I’m off to my stamp room!  I’ve got to cut and prep for Saturday’s Lovely Layers Class… see you there!
