Kay's Easter Bunny

Hello Stamp Friends!

Today I would like to share a card that I made using Kay Sha's Easter Bunny Tutorial. Check out her tutorial here. I've been wanting to make one since I saw this last year, but never had a chance. I wasn't about to let it get away from me again this year:) Thank you to Kay for sharing the directions to make this adorable little guy!

Supplies Used: (Besides the bunny, which are listed in Kay's tutorial)

Stamps: Eggcoutrements
Ink: Listed in Kay's tutorial
Paper: Marina Mist, Old Olive, Whisper White & Ice Cream Parlor DSP (last years SAB DSP)
Other: Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Beautiful Wings embosslits Die, Punches (1 3/8 & Designer Label), glue dots & Stampin' Dimensionals©

Isn't he just adorable? It just goes perfect with the weather we're having today. It's almost 70 degrees here in Maryland, with a nice breeze. It certainly looks to be a gorgeous day. I think I will take Tebow for a walk, since he's sitting here starting at me with that "Are you going to take me for a walk?" look on his face. He has those sad little eyes, which make it impossible to say no. LOL!

I hope you have a great day!

Best of Everything

Hello Stamp Friends!

Today I would like to share a card that I made for a small swap. I used the Best Of Everything Stamp Set and Cheerful Treat DSP, which you can get with hostess dollars, when hosting a workshop of $150 or more. I love the colors in this Designer Series Paper. I was going for a Spring feel for this card, so I chose Subtle colors for the base & layers. Then I chose darker colors so the Sentiment, birds wing, and flowers so they would stand out more. I love the way it turned out.

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Best of Everything & Perfect Pennants

Paper: Wisteria Wonder, Pink Pirouette, Concord Crush, Whisper White & Cheerful Treat DSP

Ink: Pads: (Bashful Blue, Corcord Crush & Melon Mambo) & Markers: (Chocolate Chip, Lucky Limeade & Pumpkin Pie)

Other: Big Shot dies (Scallop Circles # 2 & 3” Circle), Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Punches (3/4” x 15/16” oval & ¾” Circle) Mini Brads, Wisteria Wonder 3/8" ruffled ribbon, glue dots & Stampin’ Dimensionals©

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a terrific day:)

Hello Stamp Friends!

Today, I would like to share a Journal that I took to a gathering a couple weeks ago. I cased this journal by Sharlene Meyer here. If you've never seen her work, you've got to check it out! The only things I did differently, is I took the ring off of the book, so I could cover the whole thing. I cut the card stock 5 1/4" x 5 1/4", then traced the two wholes closest to the ends with pencil. Then I used the retired Stampin' Up! Spiral Border punch to punch the wholes. (The only confusing thing, was trying to put it back together once I got it covered:) Then I glued the card stock to the chipboard album using the Anywhere Glue Stick. The only other thing I did differently is, I used the Timeless Type alphabet Medium Sizzlits dies to make the initials of the first names of the people attending. I wanted to personalize them a bit. Everyone loved them. Thanks Sharlene for sharing your beautiful work:)

Supplies Used:

Stamps: Fresh Vintage
Paper: Pool Party, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, Whisper White, & Everyday Elegance DSP
Ink: Poppy Parade Classic Ink Pad & Peach Parfait, Pool. Party & Lucky Limeade Markers
Other: Big Shot, Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die, Scallop Square Clear Bigz die, Timeless Type Medium Sizzlits die, 5 x 5 On Board Art Journal, Everyday Enchantment ribbon & brads, Basic Rhinestones & Stampin' Dimensionals©

Fresh Vintage Stamp set, Everyday Enchantment DSP & Everyday Enchantment Ribbon & Brad Pack are all items that you can choose for free with a $50 order. Sale-A-Bration continues through March 31, 2012. Don't miss out!

Thanks so much for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful week:)
