Easter Greetings

Supplies: Stamps: Amuse Ink: Memento Espresso truffle  Paper: Neenah white, Doodlebug patterened paper  Accessories: Amuse basket and egg die, Impression Obsession bunny die, Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die, Martha Stewart grass border punch, SU daffodil delight ribbon, diamond glaze, dimensionals, heart gem, googlie eyes
Another Easter card using burlap as promised.  This time I used the burlap as the basket and I love the texture it gives to this die cut.  I added diamond glaze to the eggs to give the look of the traditional plastic eggs used during the holiday.  For the bunny I added googlie eyes, and a heart gem for the nose.  I am entering this in the Paper Players challenge as well.

Happy Easter

Supplies: Stamps: Lawn Fawn  Ink: SU Bahama Blue  Paper: Neenah white. DCWV burlap paper  Accessories: Offray ribbon, Amuse bunny die cut, tiny heart button, pom pom
Hello Stampers!  As frigid temperatures are upon us today here in Wisconsin, lets think springtime!  Easter is on it's way, and hopefully so is springtime weather!  Burlap seems to be in a lot of craft projects lately and this bunny die seemed to be the perfect match to use it with.  I added a button and pom pom to finish off the burlap bunny, added a sentiment, and some ribbon and it was done.  Paper Players challenge this week is to think spring, so I will be linking it to this challenge.  Stay tuned, I have one more burlap project to share tomorrow. 
Thanks for stopping by!

February Calendar

Supplies: Stamps: Savvy Paper: red and white cardstock  Ink: Versamark  Accessories: detail white embossing powder, SU border punch, gingham ribbon, computer generated calendar, Martha Stewart scallop heart punch, solid heart created and cut out on Silhouette Cameo, self adhesive gems, SU embossing folder, red DMC floss

Hi!  These calendars are so fun to make.  When I sat down to make the February calendar, I used this card as inspiration. I thought it would be easy, peasy!  Ha!  It was difficult finding the scallop heart in such a tiny size.  I ended up using a scallop Martha Stewart heart punch, but then I had to create a heart cut out for the solid heart!  An hour later...I had my hearts figured out.  After that things fell into place.  Thank you for stopping by!

Celebrate With Cake and Ice Cream!

Supplies: Stamps: Big Day Ink: Memento tuxedo black, Versamark Paper: Papercut whip cream, raspberry, Basic Grey 6x6 kneehigh  Accessories: Zingo vanilla embossing powder, Lawn Fawn scalloped stitched border die cuts, twine, MFT banner die cut, Cranberry colored pencil, Gamosol
Hi!  Does this look familiar??  I used the same layout as my last card, except this time I used the banner die cut for my focal image.  I also colored in part of the sentiment with colored pencils and gamosol to highlight a couple of words in the focal image.  I made this card for the Paper Players challenge, to make your sentiment the focal image.  This stamp set is so fun to arrange different sentiments, so I decided to use it again.  Thank you for stopping by!

Celebrate with Cake!

Supplies: Stamps: Big Day  Ink: SU white craft ink Paper: 6x6 Basic Grey Kneehigh, black cardstock, light blue cardstock  Accessories: SU chalk talk die cuts, Lawn Fawn stitched scallop die cuts, bakers twine, multi matte medium
Hi!  The CAS challenge on SCS was to use the sentiment as your focal image.  I thought this sentiment worked well with the chalk talk tag.  The trick was figuring out how to stamp it to show up nicely on black cardstock.  I ended up using SU white craft ink and then heat embossing it with detail clear embossing powder.  I added some layers, and fancied up the bakers twine using the multi matte medium.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Heart Day

Supplies: Stamps: Whipper Snapper Ink: Memento tuxedo black  Paper: Gina K layering and base weight white cardstock  Accessories: Hot Off The Press embossing folder, Doodlebug twine, circle nestabilities, copic markers, crystal effects, wink of stella marker clear
Hi!  Thought I would get a jump start on a Valentine card.  I made this with inspiration from the featured stamper challenge on SCS.  I cut out the partial circle, embossed the focal panel, added some twine, and adhered it to the card base.  Then I used my trusty stamp-a-ma-jig and stamped the heart bee.  I colored the image with copic markers, added wink of stella to the wings and heart.  Then I added crystal effects to the heart as well.  I wanted a little sentiment to fit in the cut out circle, but I couldn't find one that was just right!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
