Easter Eggs For You

Happy Thursday! Yes, Thursday. Already. Looks like another month is flying by before our eyes!

And, you know what that means? Time for another Create with Connie and Mary challenge.

What a cool layout we have today –

I decided to go with a fun Easter type card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Jar of Love, Basket Builder Framelits, 6x6 Glimmer Pack Assortment , Easter, SAB17, Sale-a-Bration 2017, Occasions 2017

Isn’t this cute, cute?

I just love how the glimmer paper ‘eggs’ are sort of hidden in the grass. This glimmer paper can be yours for FREE through the end of the month during Sale-a-Bration.

libbystamps, stampin up, Jar of Love, Basket Builder Framelits, 6x6 Glimmer Pack Assortment , Easter, SAB17, Sale-a-Bration 2017, Occasions 2017

I raised the white panel to give the card a little extra ‘pop’ – although it’d look great without it too.

This is a really fun layout and I enjoyed creating a great card with it. For more great inspiration, check out our website or create your own take on the challenge and link up on our Facebook page.

Wacky Watercooler Spring Fever February Blog Hop

I’m back for another fabulous blog hop of paper crafting talent with the Wacky Watercooler!

2017-february-spring-fever-banner

Our theme this month is Spring Fever! And, boy did I catch it!

I’ve been itching to play with the new Window Box Thinlits and the Basket Bunch stamp set. I think they’d make a great combination! And, they did. Just look at what I created –

libbystamps, stampin up, occasions 2017, Basket Bunch, Basket Builder Framelits, Window Box Thinlits, Easter, basket, Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop

A sweet little basket just filled with mini cards!!! I used half, or one, of the basket pieces to create this basket.

Here are the cards individually –

Who doesn’t love a chocolate bunny???

…..and, Peeps? Did someone say, Peeps???

Of course you have your Easter eggs.

And let’s not forget about carrots. Carrots are very springy!

The cards are all 2×3, perfect for tags or little ‘love’ notes!

The basket grass was adhered with dimensionals to give a 3D or stacked appearance.

Thanks a Bunch

Playing around with the Spring themed bundle, Basket Builder.

I got some color inspiration from Color Throwdown

And, a layout inspiration from CAS(E) this sketch

Great starting points, right?

And, we can always use thank you cards –

libbystamps, stampin up, Basket Bunch, Basket Builder Framelits, Occasions Mini 2017, Easter

Cute. Thank you cards.

libbystamps, stampin up, Basket Bunch, Basket Builder Framelits, Occasions Mini 2017, Easter

I just loved these sweet little carrots! A whole bunch! Lol!

libbystamps, stampin up, Basket Bunch, Basket Builder Framelits, Occasions Mini 2017, Easter

The sentiment is in the stamp set too! Coordinates perfectly!

So? Winner? Perhaps I should create a bunch of these? Orange you glad you stopped by?

Hello, My Peeps

Happy Sunday!

I decided to play around with this Basket Bunch Bundle from the Occasion Mini catalog.

I didn’t get too far in playing because I stopped with these little cuties! You’ll understand…..

I get weekly updates from Freshly Made Sketches. It was my first sketch challenge to follow and play around with. I still love their style, but haven’t played around with then in forever!

This week, this is their challenge –

I struck me as I was looking at the pieces from this bundle. I quickly came up with this sweet little card –

libbystamps, stampin up, Basket Bunch, Basket Builder, Labeler Alphabet, Peeps, Freshly Made Sketches, FSM273, hello

AhDOORable, right?? Because who doesn’t love Peeps??

libbystamps, stampin up, Basket Bunch, Basket Builder, Labeler Alphabet, Peeps, Freshly Made Sketches, FSM273, hello

I stamped each one and framelit cut them out. Yes. there IS a coordinating framelit for these little cuties! 

libbystamps, stampin up, Basket Bunch, Basket Builder, Labeler Alphabet, Peeps, Freshly Made Sketches, FSM273, hello

I stamped the greeting after eyeballing the placement of the Peeps. I popped each one up on a partial Dimensional. The inside of the card says ‘Peeps’ using the same Labeler Alphabet.

In looking at the sketch, the solid color lines reminded me of the long narrow boxes Peeps come in. Sometimes, the larger packs have 9 peeps if I recall…..Anyway, this sketch just spoke to me with these Peeps!!

I’d love to hear what you think of the card! I can’t wait to make a few more and send them out!!!

Chick Out This Easter Bunny

I made this adorable card using the Sale-a-Bration set, Honeycomb Happiness.

It’s just too cute not to share –

libbystamps, stampin up. Honeycomb Happiness Stamp Set, And Many More Stamp Set, Wildflower Fields DSP, Easter, Sale-a-Bration 2016,

Isn’t it?

I had a several of these chicks cut out and decided to use them in random cards. This one, I turned into a bunny by adding some ears! These were actually two different butterfly punches!

libbystamps, stampin up. Honeycomb Happiness Stamp Set, And Many More Stamp Set, Wildflower Fields DSP, Easter, Sale-a-Bration 2016,

The flowers were made by punching tiny flowers around the Wildflower Fields DSP, another great Sale-a-Bration choice! You can never go wrong with DSP, and FREE DSP at that!

One more look at my cutie.

You’ve come this far in my post. You should practice good ‘card carma’ and leave a comment.

Easter Egg Burst

Got a sweet Easter card to show you today – yes. straight to the point –

libbystamps, Stampin Up, Suite Sayings, Ovals Collection Framelits, Sunburst Thinlits, Easter

It’s sooo pretty in person!

I used the Ovals Collection Framelits, largest scalloped one, as a base. I had cut three sunburst out and used just the inner pieces in a pattern. I could actually have made three at one time too, but I didn’t. I did save those scraps…

I combined Whisper White and Very Vanilla in this card for something a little different. The stamped sentiment worked perfectly in the Oval framelit too.

The bright are fun for Easter. The lighter colors are problematic to photograph sometimes. But, nonetheless, you still see a very lovely card!

So, you’ve come this far in my post. You should practice good ‘card carma’ and leave a comment.
