Hi friends! I wanted to take the time to share with you this morning that SU! has a new suite of products making their debut on May 1-31. I know you are going to love them. There is so much that can be done with these new products. These are products that will appear in the new catalog on June 1, but from May 1-31 you will be able to purchase these as a bundle and save. They will not be in a bundle come June 1. Watch this short video and then let me know that you are interested in attending my Eastern Elegance class in May. I will be giving more class details in the next couple of days. Meanwhile, enjoy the video and get ready for some awesome fun come May. I promise you wont' be disappointed.

Welcome to the OSAT April blog hop. Our theme this month is Flower Power. I decided to use my favorite set Oh So Succulent. This set is unfortunately on the Stampin'Up! retirement list. I'm so sad. I love this stamp set and the matching framelits. This will for sure stay in my private collection even though I can't demo it past May. If you haven't gotten this set be sure to do so before they are gone for good.
Now onto my projects. I chose to use various images from the stamp set to make my own background paper for my card. This is always a fun technique. You can take a full sheet of cardstock and stamp till your heart's content or until you think it looks just right. Yeah, sometimes you can go a little overboard if you don't stop yourself. LOL! I like to pick it up after I've stamped a few images just to see what it looks like. I chose our current in colors for this project. I have them listed on the bottom of this post. I went for a very simple design and layout. Sometimes I see such awesome works of art when it comes to cards, but realistically I think when people need to mass produce cards or only have a limited time to stamp they want some quick, simple, cute ideas and I think this card fits the bill.
For my 3D project I actually started out with some flowers that I had previously die cut awhile ago. I started layering them and before I glued them down I took my Wink of Stella pen and went to town on them. If you haven't guessed by now I'm a shiny girl. I like sparkles. After that I started to glue them down. Once they were glued down I realized it needed something in the middle so I pulled out the Falling in Love embellishments and added one to the middle. Then it was like ok, I have a flower, whatever shall I do with it and then I spied a package of 4" gold paperclips I had picked up with the intention of making something with them. I hot glued the flower to the paperclip and on the back to cover up the glue I used a 1-3/4" circle. I then glue on the loops of the 1/4" very vanilla satin ribbon and added another circle to finish it off. I didn't photograph the back so if you'd like to see that please let me know and I can post a pic of the back. This will make a great bookmark or you can use it as a regular paper clip to keep organized in a pretty way.
I seem to always have a hard time photographing the Wink of Stella, but I think this time it turned out pretty good.
