The card I designed today says "spring!" Kris Kilcoyne has a seriously chic color (purple and yellow) and sketch challenge happening on her Kween Bee Kreations blog. I simply had to give it a try. Kris is one of my Stampin' Pretty Pals and a master of the minimalist look in paper crafting. Stop by her blog and give this challenge a go!
Isn't the Floral Fusion Sizzlits Die adorable? On today's card, it reminds me of a retro pansy in So Saffron, Lovely Lilac and Elegant Eggplant. The Floral Fusion die is a budget-friendly ($5.50) Stampin' Up! exclusive Sizzlits die that works with the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine.
- As many of you know, I'm a huge fan of Stampin' Up!'s new clear-mount stamps. I added the "kind" sentiment in the exact spot I wanted it. Look Ma, no Stamp-A-Ma-Jig!
- Remember my Three Second Rule. For the best grip, press the clear-mount stamp (cling side) to the clear block and hold firm for three seconds. Ditto on the DVD storage case.

- Line up brads with precision. A Piercing Mat and Paper-Piercing Tool guarantee success.
