Spring Fling

It’s the first weekend of Spring – time to put Winter behind us and to start thinking about blooming flowers, pastel colors and warmer weather! To help get you in the Spring mood, put off that Spring cleaning this weekend and get creative with these projects from our Artists In Residence.

Hello Spring


I love playing with Pico’s and with Spring just around the corner, this is a fun embossing folder to play with. I’ve kept it fairly simply, but I can envision a really colorful zentangle with all the Pico colors. Say ‘Hello” to Spring by creating your own card created by Penny.


Lollipop Flowers


Get creative with Amplify! with this fun project from Clare. Use her easy to follow tutorial to make your own boquet of Spring blooms. When heated on waxed paper, Amplify has the look and feel of suede!

  1. Both are really lovely projects. Love the idea of adding ink to the embossing folder. I have done it where I’ve used versamark on a stencil and embossed so will definitely try this. Not heard of Amplify before, will definitely try it out. Thanks for the inspiration ladies 🙂

  2. Penny’s card is amazing! LOVELOVELOVE it!
    I just used the Amplify for the first time today and am in LOVE with it!! I am using it as foam on waves and it is PERFECT for that! What an amazing effect! I can see myself going through it by the gallon! LOL TFS!
