For Peeps' Sake!

Hello my stampin' Friends!

I hope your weekend is going well!  In my house, this weekend is met with mixed was the last of the kids hockey ice times yesterday!  On one hand it feels so refreshing to have much more free time on our social calendar.  But on the other hand , we know that it will be a few months before we see some of our hockey friends again.  I am very sure it will be just a few days before I hear one of my boys say ' I REALLY miss hockey'!

Well, you stopped by to see what I have created today, so........I had Easter on my mind and the cute For Peeps' Sake! stampset on my table!  I wanted to try a bit of a different layout that I saw somewhere on line - I think Pinterest - don't you just LOVE Pinterest?

I found a great pattern in my DSP pack from Halloween, yep, Halloween! which then gave me the colour of card base.  I chose the other colours for my card by looking at the colour family that the orange came from - easy right?

For Peeps's Sake! is the perfect stampset to use your Stampin' Write Markers to colour the images.  For my little chick, I colour in his beak and eyes after he was on the paper. 

My greeting was stamped and then punch with the Modern Label Punch.  I then punched a second in yellow and cut it in half to make my frame - my little magic trick ;)

Any finally, I added some ribbon - voila!  A card is created! 

Here is my card.....

Stay tuned later this week, I will be showing you some of my Easter projects I made for my Roger's Daytime TV Easter show. 

Happy Stampin'

Easter with Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

Hello my stampin' friends!

I have another Easter card for you today!  Are you ready?  I know I still have some work to do with treats and cards and I will also be participating in an Easter themed show on Roger's Daytime TV!  Stay tuned for some more details on my projects for the show!

So the challenge over at Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge is based on a really cute picture involving Jelly Beans! Don't they just say Easter?

Here is the picture that has inspired our projects....

Aren't the colours great!  Here is the card I created with the challenge as inspiration....

The little sunshine patterned paper is from the Sweet Dreams DSP pack in the Occasions catalogueI used my new fringe scissors to make the grass and my Extra Large Oval punch to make the Jelly Beans or Easter Eggs.  The stampsets I used are Four Frames and Teeny Tiny Wishes.

I hope you like my card.

Happy Easter Bunny for Freshly Made Sketches!

Hello there,

I have a card to show you that I made using the design challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches!  Be sure to pop on over and check out all of the designs - they are lovely!

I wanted to make an Easter card - it is coming up fast!  And the perfect stamp for this design was perfect for the Happy Easter Bunny Stamp that is in the Occasions Catalogue! 

I used my Oval Framelits to cut it out and make a nice border. 

I used my Subtles DSP stack for my patterned paper and some Whisteria Wonder cardstock that I used  my Scalloped Edge Border Punch to spruce it up!

Here is my card - picture isn't great.  But in real life, the card is pretty cute!

Happy Stampin'
