Easter Egg Card

Stampin Up Framelits are wonderful.  I used them to create the card base and the lattice embossed layer.  The extra large oval punch created the eggs. The Starburst framelits made the sun, and the Bitty Banners did the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes .  The bunny from Baby We've Grown was printed from MDS and cut out.  I love the way he peeks out from behind those eggs!  The little bunny in the grass is from Eggstra Spectacular.  Tiny flowers were punched with the flower in the Itty Bitty Punch Pack. I added pearls and rhinestones and one little candy dot on the banner.  Hope you like my card today.  Thanks for visiting.

Vintage Spiral Flower

This is my first Spiral Flower - that I actually liked!  Don't ask how many trial flowers hit the dust bin!  This one is done in Primrose Petals Coordinations cardstock with a Gumball Green leaf also Coordinations cardstock.  I sanded the edges and scrunched them up a bit before rolling.  I used two pieces of cs rolled at the same time.  There is a Large Pearl Basic Jewel in the center.  There are many videos out there in blog land.  Patty Bennett from Patty Stamps and Kay Kaltoff from Stamping to Share were a big help with their videos.

It does take a bit of least for me.  My older hands and fingers aren't what they used to be!  But it's well worth it to have a bit of patience and if I can do it....I know you can.

Supplies:  Stampin Up Spiral Flower Originals Die, Sanding Block, Primrose Petals and Gumball Green Coordinations cs, Large Pearls Basic Jewels and the leaf die from the Secret Garden Die set.

Thank for stopping by.

Spring Card in a Box

This card in a box was soooo much fun to make!  I wasn't sure I wanted to make one but I'm glad I did.  And I really like how this one turned out considering it's my first one.  Me and little tiny things do not see eye to eye if you know what I mean!  Thank goodness for punches and dies.  I haven't put a sentiment (other than Happy Spring) on it yet.  I'll wait until I know how I'm going to use it.  Below is a close up photo.


DSP:  Gingham Garden
CS: Strawberry Slush, Pear Pizzazz, Rose Red, Garden Green, Daffodil Delight, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Island Indigo
Other:  Bitty Banner die, The hot air balloon was cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  
The trees were a punch I've had in my stash for years.  The bunnies, fence, tulips and flowers on the trees were non-SU dies.  The grass was a Martha Stewart punch.  Happy Spring was computer generated onto the Bitty Banner flag.

I hope you like it.  I think I'll make more of these!  Thanks for visiting today.
