I always love it when a new catalog comes out. And the new 2018/19 catalog is great! There are some absolutely gotta' have new sets in there, I've ordered several already! I got the Springtime Impressions thinlit set and found a little time to play with it. It's a great set!
BTW, I don't think the link to my website on the right sidebar is working. You can try this link to see the new catalog. www.elainestamps.stampinup.net
Here is another card with the Springtime Impressions thinlits. The 3 flowers are clipped from a portion of the large flowered piece but the single flower is one of the dies in the set, as is the butterfly.
I did the background by scribbling long strokes on the largest clear block with the broad tip of 6 different color markers. Then I spritzed it with water and stamped it onto the card front. I love the delicate touch it gives to the background.
This is the full design of the largest piece in the Springtime Impressions framelits. I cut it 4 times of different colors and snipped them apart and arranged them on the green background. It wasn't easy to snip either. I forgot to bring my Stampin' Up paper snips to Wyoming with me so I had to use regular scissors. Needless to say, I ordered another pair on my last order for the new stamps! I sure miss those little guys. :~)
And my last project to share today uses the Springtime Impressions upside down so it embosses instead of cutting the cardstock. Then I used a few of the leftover flowers from the previous projects and another new thinlet set that says Happy Birthday. It was a quick and simple card since I had the leftover flowers laying around.
A thank you to a friend who is a blessing to me!
