We have an amazing guest designers with us this month - Laurie Willison !

My cards today are featuring the new background stamp - Link it up.   My first card is a feminine spring colored card.  I used one of the pattern from the new set to create the background.  The flowers are from Petals and Stems set.  I stamped flowers with rock and roll technique.  Those beautiful sequins are also new release of the month.  There are different shade and size of each color!


My second card is mainly focused on pattern stamps - Link it up and several other Avery Elle background stamps. I cut white card stock to 1.25 by 1.25 inch squares and stamped various patterns in Fresh Ink ginger.  The squares were adhere to fog card stock. The sentiment is from another new release set Bonjour.

Fresh Squeezed Stamps March Release Day 2


Today is the second day of Fresh Squeezed Stamps March release. We are featuring stamp set We go together.



It is a sweet set perfect for some punny valentine or love cards.  I decided to use the two small stamps and make a baby card for my geek friend who is expecting.  The onesie was die cut out and stamped.  The onesie is a little small for the "Ctrl" and "V" stamps with the frames.  So I did some selective inking and kept the letters only.  Sentiment is from You said it, Sister set.


All the stamps previewed this week will be available for purchase in the online store on March 10th.

For your chance to win the stamp set, visit Fresh Squeezed Stamps blog and enter the giveaway there.

Supplies:

Patterned paper: too lazy to go back to check right now
Stamp: Fresh squeezed Stamps We go together; you said it, sister

Celebrate

Today's card is created with Avery Elle February new release stamp set celebrate.


Love the sentiments in this set.  For this card, I colored each letter with a rainbow color.   The sentiment itself is so awesome.  I decided to keep it as the mail focus for the card.
