The season of Spring is about here even though it doesn't feel like it outside. SUO Challenges #196 is all about Spring and it's wonderful events. Go visit their blog for some great ideas for Spring themed cards. I designed this card so that it would fit into a standard business sized envelope for mailing. It features the Sweet Sugarplum 2016-2018 in-color, lots of gold accents, and a Very Vanilla Background.

One of the biggest trends in paper crafting is foil. Stampin' UP has made it easy with the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper. There are no machines or glue involved here. This paper pack has three foil patterns printed on heavyweight Kraft paper and includes 1 of each 3 single sided designs in 4 colors. The colors included are Berry Burst (used on this card), Lemon Lime Twist, Soft Sky and Tangerine Tango.
It is always a fun time of year when Stampin' UP releases the new in color palette that is good for the next two years. I was ecstatic when I saw the new Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst. It reminds me so much of those neon colors that I grew up with as a teenager in the '80s. Simply fun and beautiful!
Dragonfly Dreams is definitely one of my favorite product bundles in the Occasions catalog. This card features a technique for coloring vellum. I created my first online video for this bundle. Please consider subscribing to my youTube channel to see all the videos that I create.
