Now that we’ve made all of the formal introductions, let’s get onto the projects!



Lizzie Jones is featuring Penned Elegance + Bold Borders: Blooming

Lizzie paired watercolor and ink blending on this colorful project. The ink splatters in the background add texture and interest without competing with the flowers and vines in the Bold Borders die.
  • STAMPS: Penned Elegance
  • INK: Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Smokey Shadow
  • PAPER: Raspberry Fizz, Ranger Watercolor Cardstock, White
  • DIES: Bold Borders: Blooming, Double Ups: Rectangles
  • OTHER: Scotch Foam Tape, Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens, Multi Matte Medium
Using the Bold Borders die as an impression plate gives it a much more delicate, understated appearance. The vellum die cut Lizzie used gives her project an even airier feel. Using pale blending on the lower layer gives it subtle definition that sets it apart without distracting from the beautifully hand-drawn sentiment.
  • STAMPS: Penned Elegance
  • INK: Spring Rain, Stormy Sea
  • PAPER: Stormy Sea, Stamper’s Select Vellum, White
  • DIES: Penned ElegancE, Bold Borders: Blooming, Friendship Jar Flowers
  • OTHER: Scotch Foam Tape, Martha Stewart Crystal Glitter, Embossing Pad Kit


Nesting sections of the Bold Borders die like Lizzie has on this card creates such a fun, unique layout! She used glitter in the negative spaces to give her card front plenty of sparkle and shine.
  • STAMPS: Penned Elegance
  • INK: Smokey Shadow
  • PAPER: Berry Sorbet, Pale Peony, Sweet Blush, Lavender Moon, White Adhesive Sheets, White
  • DIES: Bold Borders: Blooming, Noted: Scalloped Square, Noted: Scalloped A2 Vertical
  • OTHER: Scotch Foam Tape, Martha Stewart Crystal Glitter, Embossing Pad Kit



Laurie Schmidlin is featuring Bunny Blessings + Big Egg + Egg Stripes

Laurie’s charming monogrammed Easter tags are almost too cute for words! The embossed white stripes are a wonderful contrast against the colorful eggs. And the bunnies are absolute perfection with their shading and pom-pom tails.
  • STAMPS: Bunny Blessings, Egg Stripes, Botanical Letters
  • INK: Sweet Blush, Hibiscus Burst, Lovely Lady, Raspberry Fizz, Green Parakeet, New Leaf, Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky, Hawaiian Shores, Tropical Teal Harvest Gold, Lemon Tart, Honey Nut, Lilac Grace, Amethyst Allure, Smokey Shadow, Versamark
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, Sweet Blush, Green Parakeet, Hawaiian Shores, Lilac Grace, Harvest Gold
  • DIES: Bunny Blessings, Big Egg, Botanical Letters, Fun Frames
  • OTHER: White detail embossing powder, White poms, Sequins, Sweet Blush Grosgrain, Spring Moss Satin Ribbon, Hawaiian Shores Satin Ribbon, Plum Pudding Satin Ribbon, Harvest Gold Grosgrain


Laurie cleverly used the Big Egg Die to create the focal point mat for her bunny. She added so much wonderful, spring color with her clusters of flowers and the pom-pom trim is a fabulous way to repeat the texture of the bunny’s tail. Her use of dimension and depth makes this card something truly special.
  • STAMPS: Bunny Blessings, Big Egg Stripes
  • INK: Lemon Tart, Harvest Gold, Honey Nut, Aqua Mist, Tropical Teal, Lilac Grace, Amethyst Allure, Pale Peony, Raspberry Fizz, Green Parakeet, New Leaf, True Black, Soft Stone, Versamark

  • DIES: Bunny Blessings, Big Egg, Tag Sale: Quilted, Mix & Mat: Confetti
  • OTHER: White detail embossing powder, White pom, Trim, String, Harvest Gold Satin Ribbon, Rhinestones


Everyone loves an interactive card and Laurie’s pocket tag card is sure to delight! A simple tug of the tag reveals the bunny’s hidden stash of decorated eggs. Her stitched layer also adds the perfect carefree finishing touch to her background, don’t you think?
  • STAMPS: Bunny Blessings, A Bit More: Bunny Blessings
  • INK: Spring Moss, New Leaf, Ocean Tides, Blueberry Sky, Stormy Sea, Tropical Teal, Fresh Snow, True Black, Versamark
  • PAPER: Stamper’s Select White, Patterned Vellum, Kraft, Bitty Big: Spring Moss
