Spring Fresh

I know that it is winter in many locations but here in Florida where I live it is like spring so I was inspired by a card I saw done by a demonstrator to create this card.  I have to admit that this is my first time using Calypso Coral and...yep, I'm lovin' it!  I did two cards, one with the Pear Pizzazz Pleated Satin Ribbon and the other with the Baja Breeze...I think I am leaning toward the Baja Breeze as my favorite but it is definitely close!  This is a great card for any occasion.  Except for the first one shown here, I left the saying off so that I could use it any time.

Card Stock - Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral
Ink - Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral, Baja Breeze Markers

Bordering on Romance

I have to admit, I love the new Adorning Accents Dies and Embossing Folders!  The next two cards I am going to post use these.  I know that these types of dies are not new to the crafting world but they are new to Stampin' Up!  And, as SU always does, they did it one better than what has been done till now.  Not only can you buy these great edgelits that you can use with your Big Shot to cut out borders and trim but you can also emboss the image and stamp the image with the coordinating products!  I think that is what I LOVE the most about SU, how everything coordinates!

This card uses the Adorning Accents Die and the coordinating set, Bordering on Romance, to create a border accent on the card.  This is a simple and elegant card.  As is, it can be used for Valentine's Day or any other occasion.  If you wish, you can add a small saying at the bottom.
