How sweet is this huge stamp? I just love this dancing bunny!

This card was included in the Easter Class that I had over this past weekend. It is such a fun image to color. Well, I should say that we did use Blendabilities because I already had this class planned with these markers. This would be just as cute colored with Blender Pens and Ink Pads!

It may be a little hard to see but, we did add some Dazzling Diamond Glitter to a few of the eggs AND that cute bunny tail. You know that I love my glitter! …can’t have too much sparkle!

Are you beginning to get ready for the Easter Bunny’s arrival? Today I am going to get up a few bunny decorations. We are having the family over for Easter Sunday and I can not believe we are only just over two weeks away from the big day! Time to get busy. 🙂

I have been missing in action around here but, I have completely changed my daughter’s room over the last few days. For her 10th Birthday she wanted a new bedroom and I can say that the room looks completely different. Bye Bye little girls room and HELLO ‘tween. Lots of painting and shopping. It’s been fun going out together trying to find the perfect pieces to complement her new teal, gray, and white theme. My goal was to have this project finished during their Spring Break and we did it! Yay!

“You crack me up!”, this gave one of the girls that attended the class a case of the giggles after she saw the card we were creating. I *love* when this happens!

Can you believe that Easter is only 3 weeks away?! I just realized that. I need to get to stamping some more cute Easter goodies. 🙂

Here are the Supplies that I used to create today’s card:

Have a wonderful day!
By the way, it’s absolutely gorgeous around here. 🙂
I hope that you are getting a bit of the Spring weather where ever you are!

Funky Fold: Celebrate Today

1 crafts 2015-03-03 019

How about another Celebrate Today card? This was my daughter’s birthday card. Perfect for a 10 year old girl, right?! Nice and bright!

I used the masking technique with the balloons. That’s where you stamp your image that you want to see the entire image (in this case it was the blue balloon). I then stamped that balloon image on a post-it note and cut it out (make sure that you stamp near the top of the post-it that has sticky on the back). Place that post-it over your already stamped image then stamp your next image over the post-it! In my case, I stamped the pink balloon and then the orange one.

*I stamped off once before stamping my solid balloons onto my whisper white. That way when I added the detailed stamp to the balloons it would stand out.*

To get my pink balloon to “hang” off the right side I made a cut from the top and bottom of the whisper white cardstock to the balloon and trimmed the side of the balloon with scissors.

How do you like this fold? I thought that it was cute and fun! Something different from the “regular” fold. 🙂

I used a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock. I scored that at 3 1/2″ and again at 9″ on the long side. I also added some glossy patterned paper (not Stampin’ Up!) to each section of the card.

I hope that you get some stamping time in this weekend! My kiddos get out of school in just about an hour (yep, 1/2 day, YAY!, ok, not really, LOL, I have lots to do). They are on Spring Break next week! We have no big plans for the week. What do you do for Spring Break?

Have a wonderful day! 🙂

Celebrate Today Thank You Cards

1 crafts 2015-03-03 014

Do you have your kids send thank you’s after a birthday party? to their family members that give them gifts? I try to and I will admit that sometimes time just slips away and then I forget. 🙁  This time I worked ahead and actually finished Allison’s thank you’s before her parties. Now she can write a sweet note to family and friends! I always feel better when we are able to show our gratitude for their kindness.

Speaking of gratitude, I actually used this design to create my customer thank you’s! I really appreciate when you choose me as your demonstrator because I know that there are a TON of us out there! If you placed an order in February you should have received the card below. I ran out of Coastal Cabana cardstock by the time I finished Allison’s cards (she is a lover of blue-NO pink) so with a quick switch of the cardstock and ink I was good to continue. I’m loving this stamp set/bundle: Celebrate Today because it is so versatile. I will share a baby card that I created with this bundle later on!
