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.

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.

Bunny for Watercooler Wednesday #110

Ahhhh. Middle of the week. I hope your Spring break has been good for you! Have you been able to have some you time? Perhaps this new sketch from Watercooler Wednesday will help!

Isn’t this just adorable? We all thought so!

But, remember, this is a CLEAN & SIMPLE challenge – so not a lot of stuff with that bunny – simple is the key.

I whipped this up quickly –

It helps having an adorable stamp set and coordinating framelits! And, yes, DSP on hand too.

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.

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

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?

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!

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 Joys

We recently had our postponed December Team meeting, dinner, card swap, and gift exchange!

I made this little simple number of a card to share –

libbystamps, stampin up, Suite Saying, Birthday Bouquet DSP, Easter, Cut Away Card

It’s such a sweet design. Great for Easter.

libbystamps, stampin up, Suite Saying, Birthday Bouquet DSP, Easter, Cut Away Card

I took a few pictures to show off this neat style of a cut apart card, because the front is not all there.

libbystamps, stampin up, Suite Saying, Birthday Bouquet DSP, Easter, Cut Away Card

It’s very east and you don’t use any more card stock than a typical 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card.

You cut a basic card, 4 1/4 x 11. Score as usual at 5 1/2.

Place that score line in your trimmer at the 1 3/4 mark and cut. Basically, you’ve cut most of the front of the card off! What’s left, trim to 1 3/4 (this becomes your bottom panel) and the remainder, trim to 3 1/2 x 2.

I just decorated those pieces with DSP, 1 1/2 x 4 and the center panel I stamped is 1 3/3 x 3 1/4.

Quite lovely, yes?

I saw this idea over at Julie’s Stamping Spot. Very talented designer.

I’d love to read what you think about my card creation today!

Happy Easter Great Niece

Candy Bunny, again! This time a quick post for my great nieces, I have a few of them.

It’s quick because I’m still sick. Never got to make these for my great nephews either. Needed to make more of these, but my ‘throat infection’ got in the way.

But, you get to see it anyway!

Having these Note Card sets around really help in expediting cards sometimes. That is what I used here.

Sour Cream Carrots

Sour cream what? Carrots. You know, those sour cream containers you make with paper? Mine are carrots. Just look at them.

Adorbs, right?

Thought you’d like them. I do too. I made these quick treats for my co-workers. They were super easy. Used some retired items which is always a plus.

I have made these containers before, but for these, I got my inspiration here. I just wanted to use this large Gumball Green Sweater Trim. It made the perfect floppy carrot tops!

When I assembled these, I did use sticky strip, however, in my humid climate – it just did not cut it. I added a little invisible tape to the bottom to make sure it stayed closed. And, instead of using that for the top, I punched a whole so that I could feed the trim through. This way, the container would not be destroyed when getting to the candy! I know, I think of everything.

I started with a 4×4 piece of DSP and got 9 out of one sheet. Pretty cool, huh?
