This beautiful card was one of the creations we made in my April Hands On Class.  It uses the Nature Walk stamp set from the Occasions Mini Catalog and a technique called Faux Silk.  This particular card design is from Sandy MacIver – she is a very creative demonstrator.  Nature Walk is one of my favorite stamp sets and I’m hoping so much that it ends up in our next Idea Book & Catalog so I can keep using it for classes and clubs.  I think it is so pretty that I bought the wood set so I could put it out on a shelf for decoration!  I just love all the images in the set.  So when I saw this design from Sandy I wanted to use it.

Other items from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Mini Catalog that I used are the Framed Tulips embossing folder, the Botanical Gazette Designer Series paper and the Cherry Cobbler seam binding.  The Mini Catalog ends in just a few days so hurry if you would like to purchase any of these items.  I do know that the embossing folder will continue to be available but not the other products.  I always hate the end of a mini catalog – especially this one it had so many wonderful products in it – I only hope that is a sign of what’s to come in our new Idea Book.

I hope your Easter was wonderful – ours was just perfect.  We were here with 32 family members and friends.  We had great company, great weather and wonderful home cooked food.  We had three tables set up in the new sunroom and it was perfect.  This year we had a lot of different states represented – while most of the group was from all over Georgia – we also had some from Indiana, Florida, South Carolina, Louisiana, and even one from California.  How fun to have us all together in one place.

Have a great week!
