Easter is around the corner and this card (page 19 Occasions catalog)is a lovely way to send a greeting. I used the Falling in Love DSP, gold foil and gold embossing to make it. Very quick but a pretty look. Hugs, Fran
I thought I’d change my Valentine sampler to an Easter Sampler. I used the Circle Spring, Basket Bunch and Suite Sayings stamp sets along with the matching dies to make this one. The matting is Pear Pizzazz and Calypso Coral. You can click on the image to see the squares. Hugs, Fran
We had a team meeting recently and I had challenged my team to use the egg cartons for a project. Some of the gals took me up on my challenge and I want to share the results with you today! Send out some love for……..
Our beach loving friend, Anne! She did a home decor egg carton.
The carton is decorated with Swirly Bird and the matching dies and filled with…..
sea shells! Brilliant! Next up is Lynne……….
She used the Salebration set Hey Chick and made the chicks stand up on the top of her colored egg carton!
Can you see how they stand up?
Inside she made an Easter treat box. Cute! Then there was Elena’s carton – which made everyone gasp!
Yeah, I know! She used paper succulents and some store bought succulents to create a rock garden!
There were so many gorgeous things going here! See her cute sign? I played along too……..
I used Bunny Basket to make a traditional Easter egg carton.
And that’s it! Thanks to gals who participated and hope you’ve enjoyed seeing all these ideas. Hugs, Fran
Lucky the Rabbit is getting ready for Easter! This month’s challenge is glitter and this card is covered with it! It’s a Fancy Label Accordion – and a lot more. Behind Lucky are some clouds stenciled with Karen Burniston’s Partly Cloudy stencil. Lucky is painting an egg from the Easter Egg die all done with Silk Microfine Glitter. His paintbrush is the spatula from Props 8. I cut down the handle and dipped it glue and several colors of glitter. The paint drops and splatters are from the Cake Pop Up (candle flames and strawberry tops.)
The edges are from the Star Fancy Edges and glittered too.
Here’s the card open!
The sentiment is from Stampin Up’s new Greatest Greetings. To make the paint bucket, I used Lucky’s basket cut in Silver foil with drops of glue and glitter. Make sure to check out the other cards on Karen’s Blog! Hugs, Fran
Double your fun with this Berry Basket 🙂 I made this one out of Coaster Board and it is sturdy, sturdy, sturdy! To do this, I cut the Berry Basket Die 4 times and assembled them 3/4 of the way – meaning on one piece for each basket I cut off one flap. Cut a piece of Coaster Board 3 x 6 and layer the 3/4 baskets on top of it. Line the inside with some of the Best Year Ever DSP and make a long edge to go around the basket. The handle is a 1/2 x 12 piece of Coaster Board. Decorate and fill with lots of Easter candy – it can handle it! Hugs, Fran
This is a new die in the Mini Catalog called Berry Basket. It’s a Bigz die and makes a lovely basket that is a nice size for all kinds of things. To do this basket I adhered a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of Whisper White and Best Year Ever Designer Series paper together and run it through the Big Shot Whisper White side down. You need to do this twice so you have 2 pieces. Assembly is simple and the basket is very sturdy when assembled. I added half a Doily, a Coastal Cabana butterfly from the Butterfly Framelits and a Calypso Coral stamped from the Butterfly Basics set and die cut. The center is a Calypso Coral pom-pom. I assembled my basket using the hand-held stapler.
Still snowed in with more snow coming tomorrow. Going. Stir. Crazy. Hugs, Fran
This beautiful set is called Indescribable Gift. I stamped the flower twice and colored the background and flower using Blendabilities. The ribbon goes through a slit in the front, cut with a craft knife.
Then I fussy cut the flowers and popped them up and added some Dazzling Details.
This is a card we did yesterday at stamp club. Inspired by Pinterest, it features the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series paper and the Lattice die. The front is embossed with the Mosaic embossing folder and I found it easiest to emboss it first and then die cut it with the Oval Framelits.
Stamp Set – Delightful Dozen, Petite Petals
Cardstock – Whisper White, Watercolor Wonder DSP
Ink – Crushed Curry, Crisp Cantaloupe
Etc – Lattice die, Mosaic embossing folder, Oval Franelits, large pearl, Petite Petal punch, Bird punch
It was fun playing with the Lattice die again. I had to dust it off and I’m glad I did! Hugs, Fran
Here’s a bunny for your banner On Tuesday, Stampin Up released Eggstra Spectacular as a download (1379120). I imported the svg file into my ecutter and enlarged the bunny, deleted his tail and cut him out of Whisper White cardstock. He is adhered to a banner from the Celebration Basics Kit (133007) and has a pom-pom from the banner that was available during Saleabration. Making an entire banner of these would be so cute – but I am going to tie this one on to an Easter basket. Just a funny idea! Hugs, Fran
