Some Bunny Loves You!


March29-1

I created a fun little bunny inspired card using the Papertry Ink set "Polkadot Parade #1". This little bunny is so cute! The  grass die-cut is from Your Next Stamp. I stamped my bunnies using A Muse Studio, and Fresh Ink, and adhered them to a piece of white card stock embossed with the PTI Aida cloth impression plate. I'm happy you hopped by today! (Sorry, couldn't resist.)

Playing With Unity Stamps!

PCchallange

  Hello! Recently I had a card published using Unity stamps, and in-case you didn't know this, they have a fantastic publication incentive - $25 Pay-Pal payment, AND a FREE stamp set of your choice! I received my stamp set yesterday, and was excited to ink it up so I created a card for the Paper Crafts Connection March Gallery Challenge that ended last night. (I took a pic last night and uploaded it to Flick, but took more in the sunlight today.) The Unity stamp set is a beautiful "create your own quilt design" called "Leaves All Over Faux Quilting by Ann Butler". This set is so pretty! I also used my new PTI stitching dies, and this time I did add the stitching. It takes awhile, but turns out so beautifully!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

To create my card I used a die-cut  from Mega Gracious Vases that I coated in glitter, and added a strip of gold sequins. I also used my new Rosie Posie shading set along with the original Rosie Posie stamp set to create my stamped roses. I stamped my roses using Stampin Up Ruby Red, and Cherry Cobbler classic ink.  I SO love these sets! To finish off my card I added a sentiment from the new Quick Stitched Sentiments die set. I'm happy you stopped by and I hope you have a great day!

Your Next Stamp March Release Sneak Peek Blog Hop!

Click HERE for my TCM March Release Preview Day #3 post!



YNS2



Hello!  I am happy to be here today along with the rest of the YNS design team for our March Release Sneak Peek Blog Hop! I am excited to show you a few projects I created using the YNS Whatnots Set 5 - Easter Goodies that is now available in the YNS store!




So cute, and fun....seriously!

YNS1

        I used the "Peeps" bunny to create 3 Peep chipboard bunnies, and a sentiment I created myself. Now I don't know about you, but when I was little, the Easter Bunny would always leave us Peeps in our Easter baskets, but sadly, none of us EVER ate them. They usually got thrown away along with the green Easter grass that inevitably would get stuck to the Peeps. Sad, right? So, I thought it would be fun to pay homage to Peeps for all Easter baskets they have filled, and for the beautiful color they bring to Easter baskets all over the world!

I also created two tags that I will be gifting this year.


YNS3

Can you see the embossing on the basket, carrots and bows? Amazing and oh so cute! I added a sentiment from the YNS set "Fancy Frame and Die Set".

I am so happy you stopped by and be sure to leave comments on all of the DT blogs.  Karen is giving away a New Release stamp set of your choice to one lucky winner!

Today I am also playing along with the CAS-ual Friday: Chipboard challenge with my Peeps Bunnies card!

I created two, complimenting cards for my peek. I embossed the cake platform using silver embossing powder. I stamped the layers, cut them out and built my wedding cake!

Happy St. Patrick's Day - May Good Luck Be Your Friend!




YNSMarch17

  Hello! I am happy to be here today to wish you a Happy St. Patrick's Day (1 day early)! I am also excited to give you an early sneak peek of a sentiment stamp set being released by YNS on March 20th! I also used a shamrock from the YNS die set Seasonal Icons Set 1. I created a die-window, and added a piece of green glitter card stock behind it. The black card stock came with the woodgrain embossing already. I used my Perfect Layers tool to add the white matted border.  I finished off my card with buttons from October Afternoon, and a a double machine stitched border. I am entering this card in the Moxie Fab World Card Creations Week: Emphasize The Negative challenge. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and thank YOU for stopping by!
