Some Bunny Loves You

Happy Sunday and a cold Sunday it is - 35 degrees and windy. It was actually sleeting earlier this morning. I wish Spring would hurry and make its appearance!
I have a couple more Easter cards to share and a birthday card.

 I made this little bunny out of a circle and oval punch. Even the cute little flower is a punch! The card stock and pattern paper was in my scraps. The ribbon is from Stampin Up.

I got the idea for these 2 cards off Pinterest. Same pattern paper, just different colored card stock and the bows I tied differently on each card.

I am done with Easter cards for this year. I packed up everything pertaining to Easter and made room on my table for my next project. Whatever that may be....
But for now, I had a request for a birthday card. I pulled out my Melissa Francis "Sweet Life" and made a couple more birthday cards. You can never have too many.

 I added glitter to the icing on the cupcakes to add a bit of sparkle!

The gray ribbon and flower is from my stash.
And here is a card that started out to be an Easter card but ended up a birthday card....

I embossed the green cardstock from Stampin Up with their polka dotted embossing folder. The pattern paper is from Melissa Frances and the sheer ribbon and lace is from Stamp Simply Ribbon  store. The button and pearls from my stash.
That is it from me. Looking forward to our weather warming up a bit next week!
Until next Sunday~

You crack me up!

Happy Sunday! I'm popping in with a couple of Easter cards that I've made during the last couple of weeks. Using an old stamp set from Stampin Up - and an old pack of designer paper also from Stampin' Up -

And this next card also uses the same stamp set. I used an embossing folder and ran a piece of blue cardstock through my Big Shot. I pulled out my Stampin Up colored markers and colored in the little chick (looks orange but is really yellow) and design on the large Easter egg. I shaded the sides of the eggs with blue ink.

A couple weeks ago I made a birthday card  following a tutorial on a blog I came across not too long ago.  I think it's called a gate fold card? It was very easy and I had a lot of fun making it!

The card stock, stamp set and glitter is from Stampin Up, and pattern paper is an old design from Melissa Frances.
I started the same style card but made it an Easter themed card. I haven't finished it yet but will have it ready for next post!
Enjoy your week ahead. They're calling for more snow for Tuesday - wah wah!!!

With Sympathy

Happy March everyone! In a few short weeks, spring will be here - yippee! I am so anxious for the snow to melt and tulips to break through the frozen ground!
I have been busy making another pocket mini album. This last one has a Valentine theme and unfortunately I didn't finish it on time. As soon as it is, I will post a few pictures of it and put it away  for next year.
For now, I have a few sympathy cards to post. I find I never have any when I need them as I did last week. So once I got started, I made 3 to keep when needed.


All 3 cards uses stamps from the Stampin Up set Thoughts and Prayers. All card stock used is from Stampin Up too. Ribbons and pearls are from my stash. Border punch is from Martha Steward, die cut butterfly is from MFT.

And here is a birthday card I made for my younger sister who celebrated her special day Feb 9th.

Once again, I used a newer stamp set from Stampin Up called Sheltering Tree.

Because we have had the coldest February on record, I kept the branches bare and stamped snow flakes and added sparkle to them.
You may not be able to see it in the above photo, but I added a patch of snow by stamping the image in versamark and added glitter. The sentiment is from a Crafty Secrets set called Grand Greetings.

That is it from me. Enjoy your week!
