Papertrey Ink Blog Hop: March

Just a quick post for today's blog hop at Papertrey Inks.  The challenge is based on this photo.

Blog inspiration

 Here's my card.

I used my MISTI to stamp the multiple bitty bouquet die cuts.  Soooo easy and fast too! I just love that tool. So worth the price.

 Here's a different version; added the ribbon and left off the raindrops.

Do you have a favorite?

A Couple of March Birthdays

  When I bought The Shaker & Sprinkle kit I rationalized my purchase that I would create a shaker card for everyone's birthday. Here it's 6 months later and I'm just beginning to make good on my promise. I have several March birthdays. The first card is for my sister. The pink and ruffle heat with a little bling definitely makes it girly.

 For my son's card, I changed the colors, omitted the ruffles and bling and changed the sentiment. Since I really don't like working with the sticky foam that came in the kit, I used multiple layers of the die cut to build up the shaker. I definitely like that method much better. In fact the sprinkles inside tend to move better instead of sticking to the foam.

I'm submitting this card to Unilo Studio Challenge where the theme is birthday.

Easter Invitation

 It's snowing right now. Expecting at least 6 inches before day break. It's hard to believe that Easter is just a month away. I decided to break out some old stamp sets to create some Easter Invitations.
My idea was to combine the chick in the egg with the flowers from Sweet Spring. However when I assembled the card, I wasn't exactly crazy about it.

With a few minor changes, I ended up with this version.

I used my computer to generate the sentiment and my MISTI to stamp the label and flowers. Love this tool. It makes multiple card stamping a breeze. So which invite do you think I should actually send?

I'm submitting this to the challenge to Addicted To Stamps.  The theme is holiday.
