World Card Making Day Blog Hop Using Stampin' Up! Products

Hello and welcome to our World Card Making Day Blog Hop showcasing current Stampin' Up!® products. 

I'm so excited to be participating in this event!  This hop is such a fantastic way to celebrate World Card Making Day and I can't wait to see what everyone has created.

You are currently visiting Lissa Carter in Australia and from here you will be hopping to many other places around the world. There is a list at the end of the page which will help you to move along from blog to blog so you see 20 amazing projects all up.

Here in Sydney, where I live, spring has sprung! It's really warming up and my garden has begun to bloom. I've got my summer vegetable seedlings planted and they're getting bigger every day. All this has my spirits soaring, so I thought I'd create a Spring-themed card for you.

I've chosen Stampin' Up!'s Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP as the background for my card. This DSP is so beautiful and makes creating stunning cards so simple.  The flower stamp and sentiment are from the Crazy About You stamp set. This stamp set comes with so many different words that you can mix and match to make interesting phrases to suit.  The leaves featured in this card are from the Flourish Thinlits - the yellow sprigs in my second card below uses another thinlit from this set. The flower colours are Watermelon Wonder, Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo and I've added White Perfect Accents to centre of each flower for extra dimension, but it's a bit difficult to tell from the photo. 

Below is another card using a different paper from the same Affectionately Yours Specialty DSP.  This card features the fabulous flower from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set and a super sentiment from the Flower Patch stamp set. The colour scheme I've selected for this card is Cucumber Crush, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake and Whisper White. The white text and leaf motif has been embossed using white embossing powder.
