Life is Grand with Crackle and Sparkle

I asked Hunter to help me design the card my club would be making because she designs such pretty cards. I told her the main stamp set I wanted to use (Life is Grand) and she put together this beauty – background stamp (Crackle Paint), the springy colors (Grapefruit Grove & Mango Melody), the Sale-a-Bration ribbon, the Rectangle Stitched Framelits. I added the sequins, of course. Because I have been on a sequin frenzy lately. I can’t get enough of them! Thank you, Hunter, for not only designing the card, but being a guest at last night’s club meeting!

Hunter’s Hues & Celebrating Swaps

Today we are snowed it, so it’s been a fun stamping day for Hunter and me. I wanted something bright and happy to send out to my group of 7 ladies around the U.S. that I swap cards with each month and it’s the perfect time to sit down and make a stack of cards.  I knew I wanted Tangelo Twist and Mossy Meadow, but I just couldn’t figure out what third color to use.

Hunter came up with a super fun color combo that really allows the colors to pop. I told her we need to post color inspiration for people, so we came up with the name “Hunter’s Hues”.  Let us know what you think!
