Our Weekly Reveal

C created this spring card using a cute digital stamp set from Michelle's Scrapbooking & More who happens to be Papercraft Star's grand prize sponsor this month. This stamp is called Puddle Jumper and with the rain that has been hitting us lately I thought it would be perfect. The card uses everything from Copic markers and stickles to Spellbinder and Papertrey Ink dies. To see details about this card stop on over at Trade Fish Designs.
When Kim saw the challenge this week was inspired by Spring, she immediately thought of warm sunny weather and outdoor picnics. Using purple as her main color, Kim created a lovely card as an invitation to step outside in the warm sun, grab a bite to eat, and enjoy the company of good friends. For more photos and a list of supplies, visit Kim's blog.

Angi loved the Spring theme for this week's challenge. She drew from the green color and made a Spring themed "Pocket Card". They are great for gift giving or to write a sweet note to a loved one. Angi tucked a journal card and a pen into her pocket card. She even added a green springy butterfly to the top of the pen. To see more details please be sure to check out Angi's blog.

Jennifer picked patterned paper with this week's challenge colors in it and paper pieced some lanterns for this springy card! The outline images of this fun set from Lawn Fawn are perfect stamps for this technique. Head over to her blog to learn more!

Tracy picked up on the purples shades in this weeks color palette challenge. Her spring card uses a Michelle Perkett image called "Sisters of Spring" and is colored with Copic Markers. The card is made in the twisted easel style. You can find further details on the card at Tracy's blog.

Regan chose to use the color green, out of the challenge colors, on her layout. She used green and yellow as her accent colors against blue to give her layout a spring feel. Using kraft as her neutral tone she brought balance to her layout. For more photos and details, please visit her blog Emora Designs.

Birds, branches, dragonflies, leaves and flowers combine to make Jan's spring card. A trifold card always looks so complicated, but sure is easy. Stop by Jan's blog for a link on how to make this trifold !

Don't forget we have new deadlines for our linky - Sunday 9PM (Eastern US) submissions close, and voting closes on Tuesday at 6AM (Eastern US.)

Tomorrow's tutorial features Kim, and Kristina has our Executive Team Reveal on Friday !!
