Stampin Friends Spring Has Sprung Blog Hop

Welcome to the April Stampin Friends Blog Hop. If you came from Sandra Mastello's blog, thank you for continuing the hop to my blog, her projects were awesome. This month our theme is "Spring Has Sprung". To see the projects from each blogger, you will simply click on the next name from the blog list below to continue through the hop.  I hope you enjoy all the creative ideas these talented stampers are showing on this hop. 

Last month we had a giveaway and many comments from all the blogs were entered into the drawing to win a Stamparatus and Carry Bag.  Congratulations to our winner...

Let's get right to my projects.  Nothing says welcome Spring like beautiful Daisies.  All of the products I used are from ©Stampin' Up!  I hope you enjoy seeing what I created to share with you today and are inspired to create cards and projects to give to your friends or family. 

I created a card using the Delightful Daisy set and 2 spring color favors which hold a chapstick.

For my card I used Marina Mist Cardstock for the base, Daffodil Delight and Wood textures DSP for the layers.  I stamped the daisies (4) in Daffodil Delight onto Whisper White Cardstock.  The coordinating Daisy Punch makes for easy and quick cut outs. The leaves are stamped in Garden Green and cut out by hand.

My project is a set of spring color favors that can hold candy, or a chapstick.  I used the Lots of Labels framelits to cut the Peekaboo Peach and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, placed a chapstick in the center and attached a tag and tied matching ribbon to hold it closed.  The DSP strip is adhered to the front and back.
Back and side view of the favor.  These are so versatile and easy enough to make several for a party or gifts for friends.

I hope my projects have inspired you to be creative, make a card or a favor to give to a special someone who needs to be remembered.  To help orient yourself, you are at Barbara Welch's blog.
