Easter Showcase

Today, in honour of the Easter holiday, we are featuring spring projects over at the myStamp BOX blog!  My design teammates have shared some incredible work - be sure to check them out here!

Here's my contribution to the showcase:

Supplies:  Bazzill Basics cardstock; Chatterbox patterned paper; myStamp BOX stamps (Mini Pennants, Colorful Companions, Straightforward); Stampin' Up ink and glitter, Glue Dots; Martha Stewart Crafts punch; twine (unknown)

Here's a close-up view, to show you the dimension of the card.  I covered the butterflies in Glossy Accents and then sprinkled Stampin' Up's Dazzling Diamonds over them for a sparkly effect:

Bettina had asked us all to use pastel colours for this project.  And it occurred to me, as I rifled through mounds of patterned paper, that I don't use pastels very often!  I finally found some papers that were somewhat reminiscent of a pastel hue - in this old Chatterbox paper!

Say what you will - they may be old papers, but I still think they're pretty!  It seems that sometimes, we get so caught up in all of the new papers and products, that we forget that there was a reason that we bought all of our old supplies in the first place... because it appealed to us!  

So, in honour of Earth Day today, I am making a pledge to use up more of my old product before purchasing anything new. 

Not including the box of goodies that I have coming my way from LCOM... *grin*

Starting today, that is... ;)


  1. What a beautiful card Sue. You got me thinking and I don't use pastels very often.
    I keep threatening to use up old stash!lol
    Hugs xx

  2. Oohhh pretty card sue! Love the pastel colours and the glittery butterfly. I'm glad my stash is nothing more than 6 mths old! That's because i scrap often and only 1 1/2 yrs into this hobby! lol :)))

  3. Very pretty card Sue! I recognized that paper right away. :)
