Spring Lilacs x5

Our team was challenged to make a card with these 5 colors: Wisteria Wonder, Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleberry. Perfect Plum, and Elegant Eggplant.  Now, I typically work with 3 colors on a project so this boggled my mind!

was collecting lilacs from the yard this afternoon and admiring all the hues in the lilac bloom.  As I started looking at pieces I had on hand and embellishments that matched I started to get ideas.  Those lilacs were inspiring!  I sure hope you like my card.   I was so happy as I saw the colors meld and echo in various layers. What element is your favorite?

Please shop with me to purchase any of these products you need to make this card:

Floral Boxes

I made this design as a door prize for our team meeting in March.  It is my second version of a boxed floral project by Hélène Legrand.
.


The Gift Box Punch Board is the tool for success with this project.  The Under the Tree Specialty Designer Series Paper works beautifully for this project, it is on the clearance rack so don't wait to get a pack.


These boxes are perfect for floral foam and flower arrangement.



This is an individual gift box floral arrangement.  It was a fun gift to surprise a friend.



I am writing a step-by-step tutorial for this project, $10.00.  Email me for purchase: janey(.)backer(@)gmail(.)com

Busy with Cards

I have been super busy making cards this weekend and can't wait to start posting them.  Here is one that I am quite happy about - so much spring happiness to this card!



The colors are: Crumb Cake, Pool Party, Blushing Bride, So Saffron.  The woodgrain embossing add lots of nature-themed texture.  The Itty Bitty Accents flower punch and the Petite Petals punch layer to make adorable flowers.  A pearl in the center adds sophisticated style.  Butterflys are enchanting with this thinlit that is available to order after April 15.  Read the update below.


UPDATE ON BUTTERFLIES THINLITS AND A SPECIAL OFFER!

April 10, 2015
Like you, we sincerely hoped that the Butterflies Thinlits Dies would arrive in time for Sale-A-Bration, and when that didn't happen, again like you, we hoped they would be here in time for our Free Shipping promotion. Unfortunately, that is not going to be the case.
Originally they were scheduled to arrive by April 8; we then received notification from our supplier that although the ship had reached the west coast port, the container containing the Thinlits was still on the ship. We have since received verification from a third party that the vessel is still in the port--and though it docked on Friday, April 3, the container with the Thinlits has yet to be pulled.
Because the container has yet to be discharged from the vessel, the soonest the Butterflies Thinlits will arrive in our warehouse is the beginning of the week of April 13; our best estimate for orderability, based on this information, is April 15.
We realize you and your customers may be disappointed you were not able to purchase the Thinlits in time to receive Sale-A-Bration rewards--especially in the discounted bundles. Therefore, from the day Butterflies Thinlits are again available through April 30, we are bringing you two special offers:

  1. Get the Butterflies Thinlits at a 15 percent discount--just $21.20!
  2. Buy any of the Butterflies Thinlits Bundles at the already-discounted price and choose one of three FREE Sale-A-Bration items (only available while supplies last)!

Paper Flowers

I started learning how to make paper flowers in February and am now continuing.  Still not thrilled with my results.  However I have made progress and I know that I will continue to improve.  What do you think of 3-D flowers?


This is my little collection of flowers in spring time colors.


This flower from the Bouquet BIGZ die is really BIG!  
So much fun and beautiful.


I think that these are my favorites.  The Flower Spiral BIGZ die makes these adorable flowers.  
I am looking forward to making more of these in other colors.
