Llama Colors of Spring Blog Hop

WELCOME to the Colors of Spring
Llama Blog Hop!
You probably have just gotten a 
look at Darrah's wonderful samples at 
If not, you can click the link above,
or icon below to check out her Colors of Spring ideas.


My FAVORITE SU product is the Big Shot,
with the Framelits the best accessory ever! 
Cristy Butzen developed this technique for using
the Labels Collection Framelits (page 6 of the
Occasions Mini), to make a kind of a flip-flop card.

Below are pictures of the card opening, and the
back of this project.

Sets:  Easy Events
Colors:  More Mustard, Pear Pizzaz,
Poppy Parade, Very Vanilla, black Stazon
Accessories:  Labels Collection Framelits,
Lace Ribbon Border Punch, Itty Bitty Shapes
Punch Pack, Pearls, Square Lattice EF

If you don't own a Big Shot, the 
Lace Ribbon Border Punch is a nice way
to add texture to a card or scrapbook project.


 This card uses several more In-colors that
are retiring in June; Concord Crush,  Peach Parfait 
and Pear Pizzazz on a Crumb Cake card base.

The stamp set,  Best of Everything,
can be found on page 103 of the regular catalog.

Accessories:  Scallop Border Punch, Pear Pizzazz
Ribbon, Big Shot Lots of Tags Sizzlits Die,
Circle Punches, Linen Thread, Versa Mark.


This final project uses the retiring In-Color
Blushing Bride with the Field Flowers set.
The Big Shot Finial Press Embossing Folder created
texture on the card base.  The Lace Ribbon
Border Punch strip was run through the Square Lattice
Folder to create additional texture.
For some reason, I ALWAYS have to place
3 rhinestones under that leaf.  Don't ask me why,
it's just not done until they're in position!


Now hop on ahead to see Joanne's beautiful projects!

Beautiful, Jackie. My favorite, of course, is the Field Flowers one. I love the white on white, and, of course, Blushing Bride became one of my favorite new colors.

Christine said...

Jackie, they are all wonderful. I haven't done any white on white yet. I'm now inspired.

Joanne said...

Jackie, your flip-flop card is terrific - how in the world did you do it? It's much fancier than the plain rectangle cut I've done before. The four little flowers on the corners are a really nice touch!

Kath said...

I am with Buffy, the Field Flowers are my favorite.

Darrah said...

You do such beautiful things with that Field Flowers.

Linda said...

Wow. I can't pick a favorite because they are all gorgeous!

Stephanie said...

Jackie, I really like your White embossed Field of Flowers card. Makes me want to do more color-on-color cards. Very nice job! I also want to learn how to make the flip-flop card. You made it look like so much fun. Will have to try it!

Stephanie Osgood said...

Love the flip-flop card. Another technique to look up. The Field Flowers are very beautiful. Great job.

Debbie Martin said...

In awe of the flip flop card, i'll have to try this now.
