EtsyInspired with Caffinated Cropper

Hello, friends:}

Well, today is my 3rd post as Guest DT member over at EtsyInspired! LOVE these challenges! This week's featured Etsy shop is Cose Dolci. The items in this shop are inspired by her time spent in Italy and Europe! LOVE it so much, that I made two cards!

This first card was inspired by the quilted pillow. I love the different squares and designs. I used my new mini April kit, A Cherry on Top, from Caffinated Cropper {THANK YOU, AMY!!!}! They are our sponsor this week--and they have AMAZING kits available each month!! **NOTE:: There is a special on the Cherry on Top kit right now!! Go check it out HERE. LOVE these papers and all the goodies in this kit! I used my new Smooch Spritz for the heart chipboard (both are in the mini kit!). I used a decorative stitch to piece together the front. I tried to get a stitch just like the pillow. Love this card--LOVE this April kit! Love Caffinated Cropper and EtsyInspired!
Kind of plain....but I like that:} **NOTE:: This is a great stitching card for Lucy's challenge! 

My second card was inspired by this felted box. Love the white and purple together. I instantly thought of Mother's Day. So I made a simple yet elegant Mother's Day card. I used Unity's Dec. KOTM floral stamp. I also used Kaiser pearls and gems. Super pretty! 
Be sure to head over to EtsyInspired for all the deets on this challenge! And please stop by all the other DT members' blogs--they have created even more crafty goodness with the April mini kits from the Caffinated Cropper

Until next time~
Love, Sav

ps...both of these cards fit in with the KISS challenge over at Stampin' Royalty
