Lovely Springtime Colors

I almost ran out of time to post these cards for the ColorQ challenge last week.  I just had to make some cards with these beautiful, soft, Spring colors.  Want to see?

These are the colors that Arielle chose.  Aren't they sweet?

This Sale-a-bration set didn't get used anywhere near enough so it's not going to get put too far back yet.  I colored it with markers and used my favorite Square Lattice Embossing Folder and a craft frame to emboss a frame around it.

Since it's one layer, and it doesn't have a sentiment on the front, I can send it to Susan's One Layer Wednesday challenge too.

And while I had the stamps and markers out, I did another bookmark card.

The bookmark has magnets in it so it can keep your place right to the line.  I need to make some more of these for gifts.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe (card 1)
Stamps:  Fresh Vintage
Ink:  SU Markers (Blushing Bride, Peach Parfait, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz)
Paper:  Whisper White
Other:  Square Lattice EF, Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, thin wood craft frame (non SU)

Card Recipe (card 2)
Stamps:  Fresh Vintage, Loving Thoughts
Ink:  SU Markers (Blushing Bride, Peach Parfait, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz)
Paper:  Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz
Other:  Stripes EF, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding, Scallop Circle Nesties, Magnetic Snaps (non SU)

I hope you've had a wonderful Easter.  We had an eggciting exciting day here with all five of the grandchildren.  I think they found all the eggs.  They sure had enough sugar!  My, oh my!  It's blissfully quiet now.  Maybe I can even get to my craft room for a few minutes after I call my Dad.

Thanks for stopping by.  I sure do enjoy your visits.

What a beautiful couple of cards! The lattice embossing folder really is stunning, I think and it works so well with Fresh Vintage. Glad you had a lovely Easter!

Beautiful cards and bookmark, Bonnie. I do love those colors from the Color Q challenge. They're awesome.

Too much sugar and kids...yep, that can be a bad mix. LOL

One layer cards are such a challenge, but you've certainly made this one interesting!
