To a classic


This is a card I made for the father of a guy I work with.  I saw something similar on Pinterest and used what I had.  I really love the look.  I got the airplane stamp from Stampin' Up during Celebration.

Just for You

I was in the mood to use a few of the many tools in my stash.  I used some dies and some punches.  I just got the main sentiment stamp from Stampin' Up and wanted to use it.

Colored Stone Silk

This is a technique from Technique Junkies.  I stamped on white tissue paper with black Momento ink.  Cut a piece of tissue paper bigger than needed.  The next step was to apply alcohol ink to felt and dap onto the tissue paper.  Apply three colors randomly.  Let the paper dry and then crumple the paper.  I  used stick glue to attach to cardstock.  Trim to the size of cardstock and layer as you like. 
I added the sentiment and butterfly to finish things off,

Easter Wishes

Starting to plan a little ahead and get a few Easter cards made.  The base for this car is Neenah Solar White.
The second layer is Laser Silver Lustre and is shimmery and has a stripe to it.
The shiny dark pink.. layers used to accent the main image and as a background layer is Azalea Mica Metallic.  I also used the Neenah Solar White to make the lacy look.
The main image was stamped on Cotton Candy Pop Tones.
I wanted to include one more picture to show the shimmer in the cardstock.

Candy chicks


These are little chicks I made for mom to give out at the nursing home.  It is pretty simple because I was going to make 40. 

The yellow base is 2 x 5 1/2 inches.  I used a Scalloped Tag Topper punch on both ends. 
Score at 2 5/8 and 2 7/8 inches

I cut a 1 3/4 inch circle in half.  Highlight edges with orange on wings and body of chick.  Attach wings on the backside of the front. 

Tag is 4 1/4 x 3/4 inch.  Scored at 7/8,1 1/8,3 1/8 and 3 3/8.  Fold on score lines and make the middle pop up.  I glued the tag to the chick so that it stuck up a little bit.

I put the eyes and beak on.  Insert a piece of small flat candy and tie it shut.

There goes the Easter Bunny

This is the Easter card that I made for a dear uncle.  I thought he would find it humorous.  Thank Pinterest for some inspiration.  All the paper is from Paper Temptress.
The base and all the white are Neenah Solar White.  The tail I punched out and then covered it with stickles.  The background in Pop Tones Gumdrop green.  The pink on the feet is also from the Pop Tones collection and is Cotton Candy Pop Tones. The piece that looks like the rabbit hole is Black Basis
The ribbon that I used on this card also came from Paper Temptress.   It is 3/8 reversible Satin Ribbon  with stitches.  I love the two tone because depending how you tie your bow or knot, both colors can show.
