Sweet Friend Pull Up Card & an Easter Party in a Box

I know it's now March but I have one last card from our February Bloom Box I want to share with you. I will be ordering the March Bloom Box later today but this card uses a die that has become very popular. I don't know if the fun stamp bundle, Spread Happiness, will be in the big catalog July 1.  Guess we'll have to wait and see but for now it has retired.  Our Bloom Box stamps are only available the month they're a part of the Bloom Box. (But this month's box is really cool!)

I don't think you can see the special use of the die in this photo but this card is just so cute! It used 3 card stocks: Whip Cream, Lemon Drop, and Lavender Fusion.  I used just 1 ink, Black Licorice, and I colored with our Color Splash Watercolor Pencils and a small Blending Brush.

So here's how we used our fun Window Pop die.  I used to do this with my Paper Trimmer but this is so much faster and easier! This die is currently in our Bloom This Way mini catalog and is only available through the end of this month.  Hopefully it will be in our big catalog or even carried over like so many of our great Holiday products were!

I also used our Ovals dies (I'm on my 3rd set as they get SO much used I wear them out), Lavender Fusion Satin Ribbon, Journey Glaze, Sparkle Dust, Amaze machine, Easy Glide Runner, and Foam Squares.  I think the hardest part of making this card was getting the sentiment on the oval exactly where I wanted it so that the flowers framed it nicely.

Today I will be doing my FB Friday Live Video at about 2 pm Mountain Standard Time.  Pop by my page at Stampin Hot With Carol if you're available.  I'm making a fun little Easter treat!  I will be sharing it on Monday, too, and hopefully get that video made into a YouTube to embed.

And do you like to celebrate Easter?  We have teamed up with Brittany Young, Certified Celebrator on FB to bring you a fun Bundle called Easter Party in a Box! Check out the flyer!

This will be available to order starting March 6 so don't try (like I just did) until then! And if you looked at the flyer did you notice you get a pair of our fun Fringe Shears as part of the package!  These are great but there is a trick to using them, don't try cutting at the end of the shears but at the base to middle!
