Easter Blessings


Hello Everyone!!  Happy Easter!  Today's card is one that I made for two challenges over at Splitcoaststampers - Free For All (Show Me The Bunny) and Way To Use It (Ovals/Eggs).

This card uses a base of white and then I've overlaid a panel of Wild Wasabi cut with Radiant Rectangles.  Next I've used Radiant Rectangles to cut the white decorative panel and put that over the top.  Next I've added a panel of green gingham paper cut with the same die set and wrapped a piece of white ribbon around it.  I've stamped the frame from Welcome Spring in Bamboo Leaves, then stamped the basket in the middle in Tuxedo Black.  I've masked the basket and then stamped the bunny inside the basket and coloured it all in Copics (Frame - Y000, Basket - E31, E33, E35, Bunny - E50, E51, E53, RV000, RV52, RV55, E34, Grass - G40, G43, G46, E84, Sky - BG0000).  I've then stamped the eggs also from Welcome Spring in Memento Angel Pink, Summer Sky, Cantaloupe, fussy cut them and popped them up on foam tape.  I needed a little sentiment to pop into the top of the frame and found one from Easter Blessings.  To finish I added a bow to the top corner.

Stamps - Welcome Spring, Easter Blessings (JustRite)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, White, Wild Wasabi, MME Breeze DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Summer Sky, Cantaloupe, Angel Pink, Bamboo Leaves

Cross of Nails

Hello Everyone!  The Easter Season is upon us and in amongst the chocolate and bunnies, many of us reflect on the meaning of Easter and that Christ died for us.  I think it was last Easter, I was driving past a local church and saw on the sign a saying......."The key to Heaven was hung on a nail" - what an amazing, powerful image this brings and it has stayed with me.  I thought this Cross of Nails by ODBD would be perfect for an Easter card.

So I decided to play along with this week's ODBD Shining the Light challenge - He is Risen.....but I forgot the 'PASTELS' part!!!  D'OH!!!  To be fair, I did make this particular card for a man who probably wouldn't appreciate the delicate pastel shades anyway.  :)  Anyway, I'm going to submit it even though it's not very pastely!  :)

I've used a base of Very Vanilla and layered with green card, topped with very dark green cut with A2 Filigree Delight Die.  The dark green panel had the middle cut out with the oval die that comes with A2 Filigree Delight and the light green panel was cut with Small Oval Nestabilities.  I've then added another oval panel embossed with Spellbinders Cane Weave 3D MBossibilities and topped that with more dark green cut with a smaller die from A2 Filigree Delight.  The cross is the single set called Cross of Nails and has been stamped in black and coloured with Copics (N1, N3, N5, N7, E31, E33, E35) and fussy cut.  To finish I've stamped the sentiment from The Lord Has Risen and turned it into a double notched tag.

Stamps - Cross of Nails, The Lord Has Risen (ODBD)
Paper - Very Vanilla, Light Green, Dark Green, X-press It Blending Card
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Spellbinders A2 Filigree Delight, Small Oval Nestabilities; Cane Weave MBossilibilies

Build Me Up Buttercup!

Hello Everyone!  Today's card is for the Deconstructed Sketch Challenge (Number 147).  This is the first time that I've played along with the challenge!  I just loved this fun sketch and knew exactly what I wanted to do as soon as I saw it!!  :)

I've used a base of Baja Breeze and layered it with So Saffron and then a piece of white.  Over the top part of the white I've added the strips of paper for the Starburst technique and then added some So Saffron ribbon across the join.  Across the bottom I've stamped the sentiment from Marcella's Mixtape Vol.1 in Memento Tuxedo Black.  I've stamped these adorable buttercups, also from Marcella's Mixtape Vol.1  in Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (B00, B12, B14, B16, BG13, BG11, N5, Y21, Y38, G21, G24, E11, E13).  I've then cut it out with Large Circle Nestabilities and matted with more Baja Breeze cut with Lacey Circles and popped it up on foam tape.  To finish I've added a few Kaisercraft Lemon Pearls on each side of the sentiment.

Stamps - Marcella's Mixtape Vol.1 (Power Poppy)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Baja Breeze, So Saffron, White, MME Bluebell DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Spellbinders Large Circle and Lacey Circle Nestabilities, So Saffron Ribbon, Kaisercraft Lemon Pearls, X-press It Foam Tape.

SC483 Love


Hello Everyone!!  Today I've played along with the Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge!  It has been a looooooong time since I've joined in this challenge, so it was such fun to actually play along this week.  :)

I've used a base of Vintage Pink Bazzill and layered with white (pierced), pink bazzill and some pretty Maja Designs Vintage Summer Basics 1925 DP.  Across this I've added a piece of Vintage Pink, punched with Deco Fan Punch and topped with white lace and pink ribbon.  The panel is created of pink bazzill topped with Maja Designs DP.  For the feature panel, I've stamped this gorgeous image from Power Poppy called Springtime Love in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (G20, G21, G24, G28, YG11, YG13, YG17, E23, RV000, RV32, RV34, B0000, B00, B01, B04) and matted it with Vintage Pink Bazzill.  The sentiment is also from Springtime Love, has been stamped in Memento Angel Pink and cut with Large Circle Nestabilities.  I've finished by adding a bow to the ribbon.

Happy 40th!


Hello Everyone!!  Today I have a different sort of card to show and I've made it for my brother who turns 40 this week!  :)  I've seen a few of this box cards around (and they fold FLAT to fit into a standard size envelope, how cool is that!) and thought I'd have a go making one since it's a biggish occasion! 

I actually found this download file at the Silhouette Store called Box Card: Birthday 30, 40, 50 (yes, it has all three ages as part of the download file! There are also other downloads for other ages.) by Lori Whitlock.  If you don't have a Silhouette, then you can follow the Pop Up Box Card Tutorial by the amazing Dina Kowal at Splitcoaststampers!


I simply cut out all the pieces in a variety of colours and used a piece of masculine type heavy DP from my stash and glued it all together.  It was fun and something a bit different for me and I hope he likes it, even if I am reminding him that's he's now hit the big 4-0!  LOL!!  I did write a little birthday wish for him on the front panel, just forgot to photograph it *before* I wrote it, so I've just blurred it, the cardstock was plain white!  ;)

Stamps - NONE (GASP!)
Paper - Brown, White, Red, Blue, Yellow, Green, DP
Ink - NONE
Accessories - Silhouette Store Download File, Silhouette, Glue

Gift Card Thank You!


Hello Everyone!!  Today's project is one that is a little different for me - I've used a Silhouette File from the Silhouette Online Store to cut this cut Present Gift Card Holder and then stamped it with Quilted Circles Background Stamp and Burlap Background Stamp and created a thank you tag with Congrats Vintage Labels Three and Seven.




I had to make a thank you for a male friend (and we all know how difficult those MAN CARDS are!) and found this fun Present Gift Card file in the Silhouette Online Store and thought it would be perfect.  :)  I've cut the present out with blue card and the ribbon/bow accents in yellow.  I've stamped the blue present with Quilted Circles Background (in Memento Rich Cocoa) and then coloured parts of it in yellow and blue Copic.  Then I stamped the ribbon/bow with Burlap Background (in Memento Desert Sand).  The sentiment is from Congrats Vintage Labels Three and Seven, stamped in Rich Cocoa and made into a notched tag.  Super quick and easy!!  :)

The inside looks like this.....

We did add a little white panel opposite the gift card where my son wrote his message, thanking our friend for helping him get to and from cricket games during the season.  :)

Stamps - Burlap Background, Stitched Circles Background, Congrats Vintage Labels Three and Seven (JustRite)

Garden Tools!


Hello Everyone!!  It's time for another fun Spring inspired set by JustRite Papercraft!!  Today we've left the birdhouses of yesterday and got digging in the garden with seeds, tools and a watering can!  This super cute set is simply called Garden Tools!


And YES....there is a matching SVG file!

Did you see the Burlap Background Stamp that was showcased on Wednesday??  Well, I thought it would be *perfect* with the Garden Tools stamps!  :)

I've used a base of So Saffron and layered with Baked Brown Sugar (with two corners chomped with the corner rounder) and added a little 'stitching' with my Copic Multiliner.  Next I've added a piece of Summer Breeze DP and cut the side with Spellbinders A2 Scallop Borders One.  I've also added a strip of Baked Brown Sugar down one side.  I've stamped the Burlap Background in Memento Desert Sand onto Very Vanilla and then very carefully cut out the little pieces to create the frayed edge!  I've cut the shapes with SVG Garden Tools and then stamped the images from Garden Tools with Memento Tuxedo Black.  I've coloured the ladybird, watering can, flowers and leaf with Copics.....RV000, RV52, RV55, N3, N5, N7, Y11, Y15, Y17, V22, V25, YG13, YG17.  I've stamped the sentiment in black and cut out with JustRite Vintage Sentiment Tag Die and attached as shown.  The watering can and ladybird have been popped up on foam tape.
