HAPPY EASTER!!!!

Easter is here, but it doesn't mean that Spring and Sprung! We have had frost several days this week, but hopefully will have warmer weather soon.

I have made a few cards for Easter and Graduation this past couple of weeks and I want to share them with you.  The bunnies are all little different, but I love the pompom tails. Colored with copics, paper from stash-most is from Marco's and The Paper Company.  The punch bunnies were done with nestie's dies and 1/4 round circle from Stampin Up. The embossing folder is Tim Holtz's, then I used a little momento ink on top of the raised areas.

The graduation hat is a square punch, used the score board to score around the edges, brad in center, made the tassel from DMC floss. Finally a use for all of that floss from my cross stitching days.
Used pop dots to raise it off the page, the background paper (congrats) is from Michaels.

See what ya think.........................................................

New A Muse Stamps and Dies Are in the House!



These flowers are from the Friend to Friend A Muse Set.  I stamped it in VersaMark ink and then embossed it using clear powder. Added some skaura pen for glitter. The “Hello” is made using the new word dies in the Spring Supplement. Love those word dies!

Happy Birthday!

 

 

I used another word die from A Muse here! I love these word dies- check out the Spring Supplement from A Muse-if you would like to order-please contact me. They have been very popular!

The keys, yep, you guessed it from an old laptop computer that was being thrown away. I love the look of scrabble tiles, so I thought about trying computer keys!

See what think…………….

Cards for Boys!

I found these really cute Mylar stickers (3-D) and have made a few cards with them. I wanted to share a few with you as they have been really popular especially for boys.  The greetings from a couple of the A Muse stamp sets are perfect captions for these.  I love it when things come together!
I used the A Muse Stamp Sets "Love Machines" and "Greetings Earthling".
These sets have some really cute stamps and greetings! So check them out too!

Another Birthday Card

I received this cute stamp set and dies from the Stamps of Life a few weeks ago.
I made this cute birthday card that has a spinner arrow on it. It really works!

You could use this die set for many occasions!

See what ya think.....

It's Shamrocks in March Time!!

I made a few cards for March Birthdays and also a few cards for Saint Patrick's Day which is March 17.  March 17 just happens to be my birthday also.  I found some various Shamrocks in the dollar bins at Michael's and AC Moore's that I thought were pretty cute. Also while at AC Moore's I found some March paper with shamrocks and some adorable shamrock ribbon. I had a few embellishments in my stash and use some various green memento inks, copics, and some great green cardstock from The Paper Company. Also, at ACM's they had these terrific embossing folders made by Darcie and so I got the Shamrock one...just could not resist.

So here are a few of the green Shamrock cards I made.  See what ya think......

More Snowmen, Sweet Valentine's Day Cards 2014

Over the last couple of weeks I have not had much stamping time....life/work has been busy.
But here are a couple of more snowmen cards I have made for friends at the Stamp Shack.
As you can see I love snowmen!!! These I think are adorable for this time of year with the little hearts.
I colored each a little different. This snowman is from Unity! Unity had so many adorable snowmen this season...I hope I bought them all!!
See what ya think.....

Snowmen for 2014...

With all of this cold and the need to make a few New Year's Cards for 2014 I just had to use some more Snowmen stamps...The top one with the blue and red is an image that I received from a friend (directmailswapper aka Nancy). It is so adorable.
The bottom two are from Unity-new this year. Perfect for New Year's Cards. The first one does not have snow added, the second one does.  See what ya think.........
