JustRite Papercraft Friday Challenge - Spring Cheer

I am covered in too much snow.  We had a wicked snowstorm dumping 12 or more inches of snow on the state of MN.  It is definitely time to start thinking about the Spring!  So I created this card for the JustRite®Papercraft Friday Challenge - Spring Cheer thinking of nothing but daisies and the wonderful sound of buzzing bees and looking forward to my seasonal campsite!!  Come on Spring and Summer!

My background is made alternating and coloring the bee and small daisy from "Black-Eyed Susan Vintage Labels Five".  Next, I stamped and colored with Copic markers the large and small frames from the same stamp set.  Cut them out and layer them with pop dots.  Using one of the sentiments from the same set, I framed it with "Vintage Labels Three", both die and stamp set are from JustRite® Papercraft.  My finishing touches are yellow ribbon/bow from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, the bow was made with the Craft-Dee Bowz bow maker. And tiny white pearls and a golden yellow butterfly with pearls.

Craft-Dee BowZ Guest Designer - Sending Love

I am thrilled to be the Guest Designer for Craft-Dee Bowz!  It is a fabulous monthly challenge with great prizes to win!  I just love this wonderful bow maker that you can get from Craft-Dee BowZ.  It is the easiest and it creates gorgeous bows!  No craft room can go with out the bow maker (hurry and buy yours today, you won't regret it)!

I have created this card using a pre-colored image that my sister sent to me when I first started making cards.  My designer paper is from Hobby Lobby. To create my frame around my darling snowman I used "Opulent Ovals" by Spellbinders® Paperarts.  The bow is made with the bow maker and I even used eyelet trim, any ribbon/trim used with the Craft-Dee BowZ bow maker turns out stunning! My finishing touches are three pink heart buttons.

Sweets ...

I'm excited to be participating for the second day of the JustRite Papercraft February Blog Hop! They are introducing a fun stamp set called Home Bakery Labels and I created this yummy treat bag! My sister makes a 'to-die-for' white chocolate Chex Mix during the holidays and I decided to dress it up!

I paired the stamp set with another by JustRite called Happy Occasion Belly Band Two which coordinates with Spellbinders® Belly Band Two die templates.

Please take some time to visit all the designers participating in today's Blog Hop!

It's day four of the JustRite Papercraft Release and we are still sending out positive thoughts that Spring is just around the corner... even if the ground hog didn't think so! Who knew when Samantha and Kellie picked the name for this set that everyone across the North America would be so looking forward to Welcoming Spring!!  Today we have a stamp set and a coordinating die designed by Samantha Walker to share with you. Can't wait for you to see the adorable projects the design team created with this fun Easter/Spring Set.

and here is my card:

I also used their Diamond Filigree background stamp, Vintage Labels Seven, and a die set by Becca Feeken called Filigree Corners. My silk bow is from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.
