Our theme this week features Favorite New In-Color.
Ok. Tough one. They are all easily a favorite!!
Thursday, I featured a card with tones close to Lovely Lipstick. So, today, shades of green for the new In-Color, Call Me Clover.
I randomly stamped the small and large leaves in Call Me Clover on Soft Sea Foam, also a new color. I inked them once and stamped them up to three times before inking them up again. Made for the softer colors.
The framelit cut leaves are really cool as you cut the outer shape, then emboss the leaf pattern in the center. Either order works. I can’t wait to play with these more!
Happy Easter my friends! Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and see my creations!
I decided to CASE this post from Mary Blocher of Power Huff stamping. Take a quick peek, but come right back so you can follow the hop! She made a set of narrow cards using this Designer Series Paper, oval and circle framelits, and flowers.
These are my cards –
They are the Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes from the Occasions Mini. The set comes with Whisper White, but I made mine in these soon to be retiring In-Colors. These are cut 9 x 2 1/2, scored at 4 1/2.
Here is an up close of each card and a little about them – This is Flirty Flamingo card stock. I used the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper on all the cards.
This is Peekaboo Peach. I used two different framelits on the set, Petals & More and Stitched Shapes. I have gotten so much use from these two – well worth the investment!
This is Sweet Sugarplum card stock. All the sentiments are from the hostess set in the Occasions mini, Yay You. Very encouraging words – I love them!

Perfect, as I made these sweet little Easter bunny treats for my co-workers and Card Buffet attendees on Sunday.
Aren’t these just too sweet? I originally saw these from a European demonstrator. I modified them to fit American nugget chocolates.
Super, super easy!
Bunny is a strip of designer series paper, 1 x 12. Score at 2, 5 1/4, 6 3/4 and 10. Nugget wrap is 1 x 3.
Use Tear & Tape on the ends, folding in, towards the center on the ends.
The two center score lines, fold towards each other.
On one of the ends, doesn’t matter which one, where the edge is adhered, apply another strip of Tear & Tape.
Stand bunny up, and adhere two ears together.
Wrap nugget and insert in bunny base.
Decorate. I used the Silver Baker’s Twine from the Spring mini to tie around the ears. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes punches with the Classic Label Punch. Pink flower is from the Petals & More atop the trimmed Leaf Punch
The side view shows the beautiful colors of the paper –
It took way longer to write out the directions than it did to whip up a batch of these! it’s a nice favor because you can use any kind of designer series or patterned paper you have on hand. Great for those scrap strips too!
I am so excited to go forward to Debbie Henderson, and back to Mary Brown to see their Easter treats! I might be making even more treats for friends!!!
I love this sketch! It’s fabulous! Nice, clean, bold blocks of color.
I went with a nontraditional Easter theme on my card –
It’s just adorable! Wouldn’t you agree?
I started out with my colors and then went to adding the embossing and placement on the card.
I cut the ‘bunnies’ from the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. I removed the ‘arms’ with a straight cut. And, I cut the ears a little deeper and longer. Stamped the face from the Foxy Friends and this is what I call a bunny!
The other Design team members created some nice Easter cards too! Check them out on our blog. If you like to link up a card, you can do so on our blog or our Facebook page. Hope to see you there!
