SomeBUNNY loves you...

Hey y'all! Shelly, here.
Happy Friday!!

Today, I'm swinging in to share a sweet Easter card with you and it happens to be a shaped card! ;)

I started with making my base card, which I used the egg shape die for. (note: make sure to have the die hang slightly off the cardstock at the top so it could fold. Or so it can be a shaped card rather than two egg die cut pieces. Hopefully that makes sense?! ;)) Then I used the same egg die with some patterned paper and then I layered together the large egg die with the smaller egg die to get my 'frame'. I used a light purple cardstock for the outer frame and a white cardstock for the inner frame. Simple, right?!...

Next, I used white cardstock with the grass die and the banner die. Then set those aside, and used the bunny die with brown cardstock and the bow die with light blue cardstock. After having all my die cut pieces I started assembling my card together. Adding on the largest egg first, then frames, and then the bunny and bow. Lastely, I added on my grass, which I placed foam tape on the back and then stamped on my sentiment to the banner and before adhering, adding foam tape on the back as well. Sweet, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

You Crack Me Up!

Ardyth here with a card using the new EGGstra Special Create-A-Card die in a fun way.

I cut the large egg from a panel of white cardstock. Then I used the zig-zag from the Elegant Stitched Dot Edge dies to 'crack' it. Because it's so big, I had to cut the top again, moving the zig-zag die about 1/2 inch up, so that it would 'open' and still fit on an A2 card. I love that the two dies have the same stitched-dot pattern, so it looks like it was meant to be!

Next, I cut the chick and 'face' pieces from the Hey Chick die set as well as the grass from EGGstra Special. I blended Limoncello and Tiki Torch onto the chick, Melon Ice and Lime Rickey onto the grass.

Then I blended It's a Boy, Fiesta Blue, Something Borrowed and a tiny bit of Suede Shoes onto another white panel to create a sky and cut that with the largest Stitched Dot Rectangle die.

FURever friends...

Hello everyone!  Happy first day of spring!  Rosemary here with a card that isn't spring inspired, but one that is geared more toward the animal lovers out there.  A Jillian Vance Design has a fun new stamp set called PAWty On and it coordinates perfectly with the FURever Friends die set.  I used both to create my card today.

Two years ago I bought a fun pad of paper from My Mind's Eye called Meow.  I don't currently have a cat (much to the dismay of my youngest!), but when I saw this pad of paper it made me think of my sweet kitty Cleo and so I purchased it.  The new PAWty On stamp set and the FURever Friends dies were the perfect opportunity to finally use the papers.  I went with a white, pink, gray and black color scheme and used the layout from Mojo Monday for the design.  Used lots of other A Jillian Vance Design dies to create my layers.  For the paw print I used a white paper with tiny little dots on it and then a pink one.   I didn't want to cover up the cute paw print so I stamped the sentiment down in that open area on the card.  The purrfect card (ha ha!) for your cat loving friend!  Going to add this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge because I think my card is pretty cute!

Easter Joy

Hi there it's Tracey, and I'm back today with a sweet card for Easter. Stretch your mind with your supplies, I used stamps and dies today that were not meant for Easter to create my scene.

The bunny peeking out from behind the pile of watercoloured eggs was made from the Dancing Daisies Cover Plate die. I cut one from a panel of white cardstock and then I used scissors to trim off one of the daisies to make the ears that pop up behind the eggs!

I started with a panel of Bristol Smooth cardstock that I ink blended with green for the grass and blue for the sky. The panel was cut down using the Stitched Dot Rectangle Backdrop dies, I used the second largest die. Joy from the Poinsettia Greeting Stamp set   was stamped on to the grass with black ink. The background panel was adhered to the card base using foam tape for dimension.

Five eggs were cut with the Cracked Egg Die using watercolour paper. Then I watercoloured the egg in different colours. Once they were dry I flicked some clean water on them to create some speckles. The ears were adhered first and then I arranged the eggs onto the background as though they were in a pile. What bunny wouldn't hide behind these brightly coloured Easter eggs!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Enjoy the rest of your week!

Mother's Day Gift Bag!

Hello, everyone! Jillian here. I have a really fun gift bag today using the new Create-A-Card series! I used the Delightful Daisy set for this one to create a Mother's Day bag! These dies are so fun because you can create shaped cards, or you can just put them on your cards/gift bags. I really love these sets and I hope you do too!

I thought the Dainty Dots stamped in Party Dress made the perfect background! Added the paper bow and Circle Charm from our Mini Bag Mega Die Set or you can get it separately as the Charming Circle Die for a perfect finish!
Fun, but quick way to dress up a Kraft Gift bag!

Have a GREAT week!

Bloom where you are planted

Hey y'all! Shelly, here.
Happy Friday!!

Today, I'm sharing a simple and sweet 'Spring' card with you!

This was such a easy and fun card to make. :) I started with heat embossing my stamped image in white. After I choose some watercolors to use on my card. And rather than adding the watercolors straight to my card/image, I chose to do it a slightly different way. ;)

I first added my watercolor onto a piece of watercolor paper and made sure it was quite 'wet'. Then I took my embossed image/panel and placed it on top of my watercolor. Quickly and somewhat lightly pressing my hand over that area, then flipping it over to see what it looks like. Hopefully, that makes sense?! ;) I did that same process four times, one time for each of the colors.

Once done, I finished things off by using the smallest sentiment strip from the die set and then stamping on my sentiment. Easy peasy, right?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

Posy Thanks

Good morning! Ardyth here with a different take on an older floral set, Pretty Posies.

I started by stamping the smallest posy and then covering it with a mask before stamping the mid-size one. Then I masked that and stamped the largest. The result is a multi-layered flower that's just perfect for some Copic colouring!

I used 3 shades of pink, colouring one petal at a time to be sure to get a good blend. At the end, I added some touches of darker pink and also a pale lemon yellow for some fun highlights.

I used the largest die to cut it out and I popped it up on a white panel where I had already stamped the sentiment from the same set.
