Sale-A-Bration is coming to and so quickly!  I haven’t even shared all the things I have made using these stamp sets.  Here is another idea for you using the Bloomin’ Marvelous stamp set.


I know I got this idea from somewhere – but can’t seem to find it now – I checked my Pinterest boards but don’t see it on there.   So if you know where I saw this let me know.  I know I made some changes but the card idea and I’m pretty sure the stamp set was the same.

I’m not sure you can tell in the first photo – you can probably tell better in this one but the front of the card has 1″ cut off of it and the Designer Paper is glued to the inside of the card and peeks through to the front.  The 1″ strip that I cut off was used to stamp the butterflies that are punched out and added to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.


Here are a few more details for you:

  • Card base is Naturals White
  • Designer Paper is Tea for Two from the Spring catalog
  • Near the fold I did some embossing with the Simply Scored Borders plate
  • colors are Calypso Coral, Marina Mist and Wild Wasabi and Early Espresso for the words
  • Pearls in the centers of the flowers

And a quick bird update – the Bluebirds are right on schedule – egg #4 came today –


Bluebirds lay 4-5 eggs so we’ll see if she adds one more tomorrow or if she is done.  It is supposed to get cold here – we have had nice spring weather and we could get some snow flurries Thursday or Friday – I hope she keeps those eggs warm.  I feel like these are really early this year.  Let me go see when they were doing this last year.  So I wend back and check my blog posts from last spring and on March 18th I was posting about the Chickadees and Bluebirds fighting over the same house.  Perhaps the Bluebirds didn’t want that problem this time (they lost out last year) and started earlier to beat them.  I guess I’ll have to wait and see where the chickadees go – no nests in the other houses yet.

Have a great day!
