Stamp Giveaway and Some Cards

I made it to Spring Break and I'm so excited! I have nine glorious days off. Don't get me wrong, I really love the kids I teach and my job, but it's definitely exhausting. Just knowing that I can do whatever I want for the next week is such a relief. I'm planning on lots of lunches with friends, scrapping and maybe even a little spring cleaning. We'll see.

I have a few things to share this week. First up today is a card I made for Emma's Paperie. I used AC Lucky Charm, some Studio Calico and some Crate Maggie Holme's line.

I started off by embossing the background with my favorite swiss dots embossing folder. Then I layered on the papers and the die cuts. This card is based on March's sketch at Emma's Paperie.

 The next two cards are ones I did for the You've Got Mail Class at Studio Calico. I've been really enjoying this class and the challenges they've offered. On here, I created the background paper I stamped my sentiment on, using mists. It's hard to see,but it has a mix of pinks and yellows on it. I also stamped the tag in the background.

My final card uses a lot of Silhouette die cuts. The polaroid frame comes from the SC class files. I added the flowers. 
 There's lots of dimension on here. I love the colors. And that triangle paper is one of my absolute faves. It came from the SC card kit, Neverland.

Finally, I have a giveaway. I have this unused Studio Calico stamp. If you'd like to win it, just leave a comment by Wednesday, 3/27 at midnight. I'll pick a winner and send it out. (Sorry for the blurry image.)

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!
