March Pals Blog Hop


Thank you for joining us for the March Pals Blog Hop! Today the Stampin' Pretty Pals are excited to share new ideas and projects to get you ready for spring.
You should have just left stop number 26 on the Pals Hop - Penny Nichols at Sierra Stampin!  If so, you are in the right spot. If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

My card today features the Feels Good Stamp Set.  These sayings are so special and the font is just beautiful.  They will be perfect for all of the special people in your life.

The card base is made from a 5" X 10" piece of Island Indigo, scored in half to make a 5" X 5" card.  The Whisper White card front was put through the Big Shot in the new Cloudy Day Texture Folder.  One of the Label Framelits was used to cut a window out of the clouds.  The white card front was popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals.  The sentiment was stamped on a DSP print from the Sent With Love paper pack.  A piece of Island Indigo and Whisper White DSP runs along the bottom of the card.  It measures 1 1/4" X 5".   The sun peeking out of the clouds was made with a 1 1/4" circle framed with 8 small pennants.  The pennants were punched with the petite pennantx builder punch and then approximately 1/4" was cut away from the flat part of each pennant to make them smaller.
Card Recipe:
Stamp Sets:  Feel Goods
Paper:  Sent With Love, Whisper White, Island Indigo
Ink:  Black Staz'On
Tools and Accessories:  Island Indigo Sycamore Street Ribbon, Designer Rhinestones, Labels Framelits, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Petite Pennants Punch, and Cloudy Day Texture Folder.
I am giving away the Bloomin' Marvelous Stamp Set as my Blog Candy this week.  It is a great set.
