Mother's Day Blog Hop

April is almost at an end and Mother's Day is quickly approaching.  Welcome to my entry in the Team Stamp It! Mother's Day Theme Blog Hop.

I am loving the Painted Petals Stamp set and the matching Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper.

I do love my Decorative Label Punch, but I always want to layer it.  This is an easy way to create layers with your punch.

The April Paper Pumpkin is wonderful if you need to make a quick gift card holder.  Of course, a gift subscription to Paper Pumpkin would be a wonderful gift to give your Mom this Mother's Day.  If you don't have a demonstrator, contact me to find out how to purchase a gift subscription for your Mother.

Team Stamp It! Easter Blog Hop

Welcome to my entry in the Team Stamp It! Easter Blog Hop.  I think I may have gotten a little carried away with the bunny butts.  LOL

Click next to go back to the beginning or scroll on down to see more about how to make this card.

I have decided for the blog hop, I will showcase this card.  I love the way it turned out.  It uses three of my favorite products from the Occasions Catalog.  I have way more than just three.  This has been one of my favorite catalogs so far.

How to make a bunny butt.  The bunny butt is a 2 inch circle punch.  The cute little tail is the 7/8 scallop punch.  The feet are a couple of different punches.  The main foot is the extra large oval punch.  To complete the foot you use the small oval punch and the owl builder punch (the two small circles at the top).  I sponged the edges with Pink Pirouette to add dimension.

I used a combination of snail adhesive and liquid glue to assemble the bunny butt.  Isn't it just so cute.  On the card I punched a 2 inch black circle to give him a hole to jump into.

The base of my card is Whisper White(5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4) with a layer of Wild Wasabi      (5 1/4 x 4) topped with a piece of the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper (5 x 3 3/4).

The Easter Sentiment was from the Crazy About You stamp set.  I just love all the combinations of greetings you get with this stamp set.

I stamped the sentiment in Wild Wasabi and punched it out with the Word Window Punch.  Then I layered it on a piece of Wild Wasabi cardstock I punched out with the Modern Label Punch.

You can't just have it say Easter.  That's where this gem comes in.  I used the Happy die and Blackberry Bliss cardstock to complete the sentiment.
  I love the thinlits dies.  The Hello You Thinlits Dies comes with four dies.  It coordinates with the Crazy About You stamp set.  You can purchase them together in a bundle and save 15%.  It's a great deal.
I hope you have enjoyed my entry in the blog hop.  Below are pictures of the other 2 projects I made.  They will be getting their own blog posts in the near future.  Stop back by to see them

Sheltering Tree Thinking of You

After all the snow we have had recently, I am in the mood for spring.  Hopefully the pink dogwoods will be in bloom around here.  Hope you enjoy the card.

Sending Wishes

This is the final design in the Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP.  Before using this design, I didn't think I liked it.  I used the Blackberry Bliss ink pad in a direct to paper technique to color the background.  I also used the Blackberry Bliss ink pad and blender pens to color in the flowers.  The center of the flowers is Hello Honey and the stems and leaves are Mossy Meadow.  I think this is my favorite card in my Irresistibly Yours series.

Thinking of you

I started out coloring this beautiful image from Butterfly Basics with my Blendabilities.  Then the dreaded announcement came that Stampin' Up! was suspending the sale of these markers due to a quality issue from the manufacturer.  I had already colored the flower and now I had to decide what to do about the stem and leaves.  I pulled out my ink pad and my blender pen and proceeded to color it the way I did before Blendabilities were introduced.  The background paper is one of the designs from the Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP.  I have one more design left to show you.

Love Who You Are

Three tone card using Soft Sky, Marina Mist, and Night of Navy.  This is another one of the designs that comes in the Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP.  I sure hope they offer something similar to this in the next annual catalog.  I just love it.  I used the sponge daubers to create this background and to do the different colors on the stamped image.
