Fab Five March!

Were back on for another Fab Five, I couldnt be more excited...for more resons than just one, Its March (my favorite month) they month of Springtime, St. Patricks Day, and my birthday!! Spring mean Summer, not to get a head of myself!! We got a lovely pile of wet messy snow and freezing rain last night/this morning so this card surely put me in a better mood pretending I was on the beach somewhere.

Fab Five this month is featuring McRice Medley Paper, most of the pictures on their scrapbooking paper is taking around the area (WI, MN, and MI) we love to support them! this card was made with their medley paper (perfect for cardmaking) Moxie patterned Paper, and My Favorite Things Sun die and stamp, enjoy!

Fab Five Day 1

Here is day one of Fab Five, I wanted to start with a simple feminine card, this could be easily mass-produced as a thank you card for a bridal shower, girls birthday, ect. I wanted to show that the Judith "stubby" stamps arent only used with the "tree for all seasons" stamp. This card has a simple "thanks" in the corner, My Minds Eye paper and Liquid Pearls dotted along on the paper to accent the swirls in the pattern.

"Wine a little, you'll feel better"

I found inspiration from a popular stamp set we have in the store,"Twisted Threesome" by My Favorite Things, I decorated this wine box with My Minds Eye paper from the "Lime Twist" Collection. The bow on top and tag were both made out of coordinating MME paper as well.

If you didnt know, Im absolutely obsessed with Greeting Farm stamps and the girls at work all knew I was patiently waiting for the arrival of "Cheeky Beach" These girls are sooo cute! As soon as the shipment came in Paula stuck one on my shelf and as soon as I saw it I took it home and started coloring.

Here is the purse I made for my last class a couple of weeks ago using Spellbinders Grand Calibur and Grand dies. The ladies in class had a ton of fun and some were especially excited to fill it with goodies and give as a present.

Fab Five Day 4 "Best Fishes!"

Id have to say that I think this card turned out super cute for how simple it was, The Spellbinders I used were from the new "Foliage" Spellbinders. I cut them out in two different shades of green cardstock, I inked & stickled the larger one and cut a slice in the paper to tuck the bottom of the diecut behind. The fish sticker was from a Reminisce 12x12 sticker sheet, I placed it on paper, cut it out, and then put pop dots behind the fish to make him pop out from the coral in the background. Then I stamped Amuse stamp "best fishes!" in the bottom corner. Hope You Enjoy!
