Easter in December?

Well I think since we can have Christmas in July there's nothing wrong with Easter in December! LOL. I got my small preorder from the new occasions mini yesterday and I literally squealed in delight when I saw the new punches and the clear mount stamps. I am in LOVE with the clear mount, I didn't think I would be but I ordered one anyway and I think I'll be going clear mount. And the best part? It's cheaper!! Saving money means more stamp sets... only a woman could rationalize it like that.

This card is made using one of the new stamp sets, called Abundant Hope, beautiful set. Plus, you might notice the new border punch!! Wow I am so excited about this punch, and it comes with a matching corner punch so the possibilities are huge. You can expect to see a lot more cards from me using this punch, lol.

I also used some designer paper that had been on Stampin' Up's clearance rack, unfortunately it's all sold out now, I knew I should have ordered more. The flowers were stamped on watercolour paper and then painted with my aqua painters.

Stamps: Abundant Hope
Paper: Pacific Blue, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White, Watercolour pp, DSP-retired
Ink: Pacific Blue, Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive, Basic Black
Other: Rhinestone Brads

Have a great day!

Very nice Tina! I know I got in my order a few days ago but I haven't really had the chance to try anything though. I love the clear mount stamps, as well as their new punches! Can't wait to share all the excitement with customers too. Cheaper stamps isn't gonna mean that I will spend any less though, LOL, I will just get more for my money :)

OOOh, Tina, this is absolutely gorgeous!!!! I really love this stamp set and the dsp you used. I'm getting a little Christmas carded out right now and was really happy to see something so spring like this morning! Thanks for sharing. :-)
