Boho Backgrounds, RAK

OK, so I go out to my mailbox last week and see this clear envelope, you all know which ones I am talking about, I have them too, but I've never sent a card using one. Well I got this one last week from a dear friend, and of course a great stamper.
I just love it! Thank you so much, Deah. I hope you don't mind me sharing it with the world!
As you can see, she used the Stampin' Up!, Boho Backgrounds stamp set along with the Scallop Circle punch, Apricot Appeal, Regal Rose and Very Vanilla card stock, a Regal Rose stamp pad, glitter and some lace and oh, what a beautiful card. Again Deah, thank you so much!!!

Easter Center Piece

This center piece was so much fun to make. I saw an idea similiar to this on Splitcoast. The first thing is to find a container. I used a clay flower pot and painted it with an acrylic paint, then lightly sprayed it with Krylon® latex enamel. I added a rub on from the Love & Happiness Rub On's in Stampin' Up's, Sale-A-Bration brochure. Using the 5 Petal Flower Punch and the Trio Flower Punch from the Three for you Punch Box, I punched out flowers using Prints Designer Series Paper. Taking a styrofoam ball, I added the flowers using dress pins. I pushed a small dowel up through the bottom center and tied on a few Double Stitched Ribbons. I placed the dowel into the pot and added Easter grass and jelly beans. Any questions, leave a comment and I'll get back to you!

Photo Holder, Using Rub Ons

I found these great photo holders at a local craft store and couldn't resist buying them. I knew Stampin' Up!'s Rub On's would make a wonderful addition to an all ready cute item. I used the Sale-A-Bration, Love & Happiness Rub On's.
Don't forget, Monday March 17th is the last day of Sale-A-Bration! There is still 1 day left to earn free stamps with every $50.00 spent.
