Let's Get This Party Started...Again!

Alright we are back at it with Stampin' Celebration. It was just the motivation I needed to get back here. I've been in my craft room a few times to play but just haven't gotten anything posted. Well it's high time I made an appearance.
Stampin' Celebration is kicking things off with a Spring theme. We have got some super inspiration photos for you. We have changed things a bit though. We will be having a challenge only once a month, but you will have almost a whole month to play. Also we have set things up like a blog hop and we even acquired a few more people on our design team. We hope you like our new setup. Leave us a comment on Stampin' Celebration or here and let us know what you think.
Here is something I've been playing with alot lately that has the whole Spring theme in mind. It all has to do with aluminum flashing. I heard they were making garden stakes at the SU! leadership convention but I never got to see any but I knew I had to try and figure it out. Well I figured it out alright and then some. Here are my first ones.
For the most part I used the Beautiful Butterfly Die, Scallop Circle die, Flower Folds Die and Fun Flowers Die. I also tried pretty much every embossing folder that SU! makes. What fun :) To jazz it up a bit and also to attach layers I used Rhinestone brads. The Crop-A-Dile punches through this stuff with real ease. I used 12 gauge wire, bought at our local craft store, as the hangers.

So I had to make a card using this. Plus why not add a little gift bag. Here I used the Top Note Die and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.

Hope you enjoyed your visit. You probably came from Krystal's blog and next in line after me is Rochelle. Hope you have fun hopping! See you next time!

What fun projects!! The rhinestone brads with the flashing is perfect! I just might have to try this!


What a perfect way to dress up the outside of the home too! LOVE the plant stakes
Your card is beautiful! Love the silver reflecting the bright colors! The little gift bag is so sweet too!


Oh wow! I love all of these--the butterfly card in particular caught my eye. Great take on the inspiration piece!
