Every other week I get to create a card for the Sisterhood of Crafters Design Team, and today is all about “Spring.”
The Peaceful Poppies Designer Paper is wonderful, and I saw this selection as having unusual possibilities. I used a Friendly Silhouettes die to cut the flowers across the top, leaving the green stems and ground at the bottom.
I glued this to Whisper White Cardstock, with a Purple Posy card base.
“Happy Easter, Happy Spring, happy, happy everything” is from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set, stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink. I could have stopped there, but decided to add “spring” using the Hand-Lettered Prose Dies. I cut the letters from another selection of Peaceful Poppies Designer Paper, and layered for thickness.

Stampin’ Up’s Cross of Hope Die Set makes the most beautiful crosses for Easter cards!
I made this cross by using Garden Green and So Saffron inks with an Aqua Painter on Watercolor Paper. The pattern on the cross was created with Glossy White Cardstock and Blushing Bride Ink. Then, I used two dies from the Cross of Hope Die Set for cutting, and glued them together.
The beautiful vine surrounding the cross was made with a Hold On To Hope stamp and Pear Pizzazz Ink. I used more Pear Pizzazz Ink with a Painted Poppies stamp for the “splotches” on the lower portion of the card.
“Easter Blessings” is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set, stamped in Pear Pizzazz Ink, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die.
After attaching the card front to the Pear Pizzazz card base, I added some Iridescent Sequins.

8-1/2″ X 11″ Glossy White Cardstock
I love seeing patterned umbrellas, and here are some beauties made with Peaceful Poppies Designer Paper. Even the rain is included in this paper pack!
I began with an Under My Umbrella stamp and Memento Black Ink, stamping the frame on four of the patterns from Peaceful Poppies DSP. Then, I used the Umbrella Builder Punch for cutting.
It’s called a “builder” punch, because it comes with the umbrella handle, which I used for cutting four handles from Thick Whisper White Cardstock. It also has a partially opened umbrella, which I’m not using today. What a great punch!
Next, I trimmed the “rain paper” to size, and used a Be Mine Stitched Die to give the top and bottom, stitched, scalloped edges.
“Rain or shine, you’re always on my mind” is from the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink, and cut with a Stitched So Sweetly Die.
I appreciate you visiting today, and I hope you enjoyed see the beautifully patterned umbrellas. Thank you!

It’s a “Tea Time Party” at the Sisterhood of Crafters, and the birds are joining in!
When I found out there was going to be a Tea Party, I immediately thought of the Tea Together Stamp Set. I chose Bird Ballad Designer Paper to create the scene, and stamped the teacup in Early Espresso ink on the pin dot DSP. Then, I used a Tea Time Die for cutting, and layered it for thickness.
The hearts were cut with a Be Mine Stitched Die from Thick Whisper White Cardstock.
For the background, I made a frame using a Be Mine Stitched Die (outside) and a Stitched So Sweetly Die (inside) with Bird Ballad DSP. I glued the frame to a Thick Whisper White card base that I had embossed with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder.
The three, sweet, birds are from Bird Ballad DSP, which I fussy cut, and they flew into position.
Prior to embossing the background, I stamped “party” in Early Espresso Ink. It’s from a retired stamp set, Endless Birthday Wishes.
Thank you for joining the Tea Party. I hope you feel welcome; we love having you here!

Today’s card was a especially fun, because it’s the first one I designed as a new Design Team member of The Sisterhood of Crafters. I’m honored that I was selected, and looking forward to participating as a designer in the Wednesday, bi-weekly challenges.
The theme for this two-week period is “newly acquired stash,” and I couldn’t wait to get started!
But, this was one of those days when I had a design in mind, and it turned out completely different.
Mouse’s “thank you”
I was thinking of a card featuring beautiful, Poppy Parade poppies from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set. I managed to stamp one, before the mouse appeared from behind the Brick & Mortar embossed wall.
i have to take the blame, because I made the mouse from the Special Someone Stamp Set and Special Day Die Set, and set him aside. He was ready to jump on a card ASAP!
Mouse insisted on writing the sentiment with a large pen from the Crafting Forever Stamp Set. Therefore, I made the pen by stamping it in Memento Black Ink on Thick Whisper White Cardstock, coloring with Stampin’ Blends, and fussy cutting.
Other than the ink splatters, the mouse did a good job of writing “thank you,” don’t you agree?
To hide the hole in the brick wall that led to Mouse’s home, we added a raised rectangle. I cut this with one of the new Stitched So Sweetly Dies, which worked perfectly.
CAS(E) this sketch was the inspiration for my design.
Thank you for stopping by. I know Mouse is happy to show off his Thank You card. Keep scrolling to see the new supplies in my Product List. Just click on the pictures to go shopping at my store. Thanks!
P.S. The Special Day Dies are available now for Demonstrators, and Feb 4 for customers. And, they will be carrying-over to the new Annual Catalog!
