New Month, New Goodies!

Good day, Stampers!  Welcome back to The Classic Card! 

I'm always happy to turn the calendar page to a fresh new month, how about you?  I'm hopeful that April, May, and June will bring us some spring-like weather with a lot more sun than we saw in January, February, and March.  I'm thrilled that the daffodils are up everywhere, trees are blossoming, and that the trees by the pond are beginning to leaf-out.  The birds have begun their crazy spring antics too!  I even see a bit of sun out there as well, so I'm hoping we have turned the page on winter.  I can't wait to get out my sandals and cropped pants... I'm just a summer girl at heart!

To add a little spice to the month of April, Stampin'Up! is giving us a sneak peek of some new products that will be featured as the "Summer Smooches" product suite in the new catalog, which comes out June 1st.  What a silly name for some very pretty products!  I think Stampin'Up! might need my help when they are trying to come up with names for their products.  I sent out an email yesterday, April 1st, with the Summer Smooches flyer attached showing you these items.  If you didn't receive the email, check your spam box as it may have ended up there.
Today's bright and summery card was designed by B Schreiber, a fellow demonstrator, and we made it at one of our monthly Stamp2gethers.  It features the new stamp set "Bright Blossoms", some of the new Summer Smooches designer paper, and some new Daffodil Delight seam binding.  Check it out...

Doesn't this remind you of a warm and sunny summer day?    Let me give you a quick list of the products used to create this little bit of summer:

Bright Blossoms ( 125497, $12.95)

Cherry Cobbler (for the base of the card)
Tangerine Tango
Daffodil Delight
Whisper White
Summer Smooches Designer Paper (125409, $10.95)

Old Olive
Daffodil Delight
Cherry Cobbler
Tangerine Tango
Rich Razzleberry
note-- we colored directly on the stamps with markers

Designer Frames embossing folder
Daffodil Delight seam binding (125583, $ 6.95)
Brights designer buttons

These products are only available until April 30th.  Then you'll be able to order them again once the new catalog is out June 1st.  The fabric brads (not shown on this card)  will not be in the new catalog, so you need to get those before April 30th.
I'm sure you know someone who'd love to receive a bright and happy card like this, so get out your stamps today and make a pretty card and then send it off!  That way, there'll be two happier people in the world---the sender and the receiver! 
Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy stamping,
