Swingin' Spring


Gourmet Rubber Stamps is previewing a new Diner's Club set today!  If you've not seen the subscription deals for Diner's Club sets, make sure you read all about them.  You can, of course, just plain old buy each Diner's Club set.  For May, the set is called Swingin' Spring, and it has a fantastic mix of fun/springy and vintage/classic stamps. Today I've used the Sketch Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers as my starting point, and paired the great picket fence image with the cutie patootie little girl on a swing to make a cheerful spring card.

Most of the pretties I used on this card are available at i {heart} papers - I'm a one stop shopping kind of girl!  I used the Country Drive paper from Echo Park because I just love how bright and happy the colors are.  I added some fabulous Pink Tinsel Ribbon, and opted to tie it in a knot and then turn that into a loose rose, secured with stick pins.  All I did was wind the ribbon around itself, and then around in a circle until I achieved the look I wanted! The Swingin' Spring set is also now available over at i {heart} papers - you can order it today!

And one more thing...well, two actually!  Gourmet Rubber Stamps is welcoming TWO new members to the team!  Head over to the blog, and get to know the fabulous Jennifer Ingle and Stephanie Lee (and let me just say.......I super {puffy heart} love these girlies!
