Spring Thing

Happy Saturday!
Pacific Point hasn't been a colour I have used all that often yet I do love the look...especially with this Designer Paper. For this card I've used Lauren's Saturday Sketch #25. It started out being a SU! only card but then I decided to use some smaller white brads instead....then heck since I did that...I decided to use the Curvy Rectangle Nestie....haha!
Stamps: Cheep Talk; Cardstock: Pacific Point, WW and Good Morning DP; Inks: Pacific Point, Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Close to Cocoa; Accessories: White Brads, Curvy Rectangle Nesties, Pacific Point Ribbon, Eyelet Border Punch, Dimensionals
My All That Scraps preview today is from CC Designs and is called Gingersnaps Spring Thing. Totally adorabe eh?
My layout comes from the Our Creative Corner Sketch that Laurie came up with. Stop by the OCC blog to see the sketch up close and what beautiful samples have been made!
I added some Crystal Effects to the puddle and some Stardust stickles to all the hearts.

Love these, especially that blue card for Lauren's sketch. Love all the different blue patterns and the birds are adorable. When I did the GSG thing, I had to make a SU only card and I KEPT reaching for nesties. It's hard to make a SUO if you ask me.

I'm working on my card so I can play in the OCC too today! Have a good one, Dawn!

This sweet makeover to your blog LOOKS JUST LIKE YOU!!! And I love both your cards -- especially your 'blue birds of happiness' one! :) Have a great weekend, gf!

Kelly Lunceford said...

So cute, dawn! You know how challenged I am with pacific point! I love this! I purchased that stamp set so that I could use that paper and use up some of my pacific point. I love this!

Kristin Bueter said...

How funny :O) You sound like me when I attempt to make a SUO card! It's really hard not to use nesties and simple embellishments that aren't SU.

I love your take on both challenges! Like you, I'm a huge fan of Pacific Point, but I haven't been very successful at pulling the right elements together and creating a stand-out card with it yet. Thanks for inspiring me with your creation :O)

Have a great weekend.
