As promised, here is the vase with five fuchsias. This actually went together quickly and I’m very pleased with how it came out. These flowers are difficult to grow in SoCal, but now I can have them inside without worrying about killing them.

The punches needed to make these flowers are the five petal, oval scallop, extra large heart (leaves), Boho Blossoms, large scallop oval and large circle. Lots of punching, but quite worth it. Valita (thanks for the inspiration) sponged everything with Real Red, which gives it a little real life dimension. The vase is made with the Petal Cone die (sure hope it makes the new catalog in July) and stamped with the Very Vintage jumbo wheel  – Crumb Cake on Crumb Cake. I wonder which flowers I can make next?

The projects for this month were a lot of fun. The first is a card made with Easter Blossoms from the Occasions mini, Newsprint dsp, Crumb Cake and Baja Breeze card stock and white embossing powder. Stamping on dsp adds a nice touch as does sponging around the embossed image. This is a CASE of mnfroggie on splitcoast.

The second was inspired by Valita. I love her punched paper flower creations. I used my favorite Petal Cone die to make the box, stamped with the Very Vintage wheel;  stamped the circle scallop with the Vintage Vogue set and attached the fuchsia. The leaves are made with the heart punch, sponged and run through the crimper. Next project: a vase full of fuchsias!

Yes, I’m still making roses! This one was requested by Kim and it’s gorgeous. The colors are Cherry Cobbler, Pink Pirouette and Daffodil Delight. Happy Easter!

This is another CAS card, no layers, which means it was quick too. The cardstock is Confetti Cream, sponged with some Night of Navy inside an oval template, which I cut with the Coluzzle (too bad we don’t sell it anymore, it’s a good tool). Then I pulled out a great stamp set from several years ago called Schooner and stamped the ship. Added the sentiment from Sincere Salutations in Cherry Cobbler and that was it. It’s nice for a guy – no frou frou.

Unfortunately we all need sympathy cards. I kept these clean and simple (or CAS in stampese). The base of all three is Confetti White and so is the front piece. I used Close as a Memory and Watercolor Trio (both retired) with Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive ink. Dimensionals under the front piece give it a little depth.
