Make It Monday #102

I am IN LOVE with this spring color combo: Aqua Mist, Berry Sorbet and Vintage Cream.  I threw some Valentine's Day Andes Mints the pockets for now, but I think I might add mini Valentine cards before I give it away.

JOY Garland

I made this garland for my sister for Christmas this year.  Her Christmas colors are royal blue, silver and white.  

I stamped the background with snowflakes and white ink.

 Using Stampin' Up! heat and stick powder, I added glitter to these stamped Snow Bursts to make a background for my 'J'.
 Versamark ink and the retired Medallion background stamp, and a graduated rhinestones for the 'O'.
This is hard to see, but I spritzed the blue with Vanilla Paper Smooches (it adds a white pearl background), then added stickers and self adhesive rhinestones.

 For this weeks colors, I chose to use the My Favorite Things sketch from The Sweetest Thing blog.  It's actually for a guest design team slot, but I just liked the sketch.

Because the back is done in black, it's a little hard to see that the background is embossed using the SU! houndstooth embossing folder.  I'm in love with houndstooth this season (I've got my eye and a cute pair of peep toe sling backs in houndstooth!).
I just got this stamp last month and I love that there are sentiments perfect for a teacher, or a friend.  I also love the 'oversized' accessories (the notebook paper here) from this stamp line.
This beautiful button I picked up while I was visiting my family in AZ a couple weeks ago.  Isn't it gorgeous?!  And the package contained two sizes.  I just snipped the back off, but they'd be perfect as the centers of a flower clip for your hair too.

Missed the Blog Hop :(

The hubby was hogging the computer last night and I didn't have a chance to post to the blog hop on PTI.  So sad.  But here's my card anyway.  I saw someone post a card with this stamp set where they had used Copic markers to add extra color and dimension to the flowers.  I loved this idea, so I thought I'd try it with my card.
