Eggceptional Hoppy Easter

2014_04_20Eggstra Special Since today is Easter I thought I would post 2 cards from Cammie.  The first card is a pretty “eggceptional” card.  Cammie brayered the background and made clouds using the Word Bubbles Framelits #132968 and added the grass using the super popular Fringe Scissors #133325 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog. She added eggs using the ovals framelits #129381 and the Gorgeous Grunge #130517 to decorate the eggs.



2014_04_20Hoppy Easter Today’s 2nd Easter card is  a real cutie.  As usual she brayered the sky and carrot field and then added the cute bunny from the Eggstra Spectacular #133071 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog  Cammie used a retired alphabet die set to cut out her sweet sentiment.

Hoppy Easter one and all.

Candy Basket

2014_04_20_20140413_0907404_04_20 Two postings from baby Blair in 24 hours is pretty incredible.  Here is a pix of the Pinterest inspired candy Easter baskets that Blair made for our twin niece, Claire and nephew, Dylan. Movie Theatre size candy boxes make up the foundation of the basket and a nerd rope forms the handle.  And if that is not enough candy, then she filled it with all kinds of confections.

Happy Easter

2014_04_19bunnymoney20140414_222946 Today’s second post is a fun way to add money to your kids Easter basket.  Our sister Blair loves to create cutesy stuff for her 3 girls and really loves Googley eyes.  She used her origami skills to make some funny money bunnies for he daughter who is in college and not spending time with the family this Easter.

Bunny Bags

2014_04_19IMG_1185 Check out these cute bunny bags I made for my sisters and a friend using the muslin bags #132160 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog. The bags were fun to make but the hard part was prepping the bag by removing the cord and ripping the channel for the cord away that is why I just made 3!!! I used a template to make the nose and ears so I could easily dauber the ink and then hand drew the rest of the face.  I filled them with black jelly beans for my sisters and chocolate and regular jellybeans for my friend.  Hope they enjoy them.

Hey there chick

2014_04_18IMG_1188Of all my Easter cards I made this year, I think this is my favorite.  I think it is because I love punch art.  Technically this is framelit art coupled with punches but I love it just the same.  When I saw this piece of DSP from the Watercolor wonder DSP, I knew I wanted to do an Easter Egg with it.  The basic egg shape was cut from the Ovals collection framelits#129381 and then I hand cut the “cracked” egg.   The cute little chick (head and wing) is made from the Starburst framelits #132967 in the Stampin Up occasions catalog. The eyes are punched from the Owl Builder punch #118074 and then I used the fun googley eyes (on the Stampin Up Clearance rack),  The beak is a modified Mosaic punch #131267. I added a bow in her hair using the now retired 1/8 ” taffeta daffodil ribbon.  The Hey there sentiment is from Just Saying #133203 stampset and the coordinating Word Bubbles framelits #132968.  The Just Saying and the Word Bubbles are a bundle and save item (wood #134819 and clear #134820).  When purchasing them together you can save 15%.

Easter Basket 2014


Today’s post is a fun card I made using the Stampin Up ovals framelits #129381.  To create the basket I stamped the hardwood stamp # 133035 and then cut it into strips along the grain.  I then wove the strips and placed it on top of the oval ring and trimmed down to shape the basket.  I filled the basket with eggs cut using the ovals framelits and used the Gorgeous Grunge #130517 t0 the eggs in a matching ink to add texture.  I added a piece of strawberry slush 3/8″ ruffle stretch ribbon and the sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes #127802 stampset.  The assembled basket was place on the “grunged” card front.

Blessed Water Color Easter


Today’s card is the final Easter card I made using the Blessed Easter single stamp #133212 from the Stampin Up occasions catalog.  I paired it with the fabulous Watercolor Wonder DSP #132994.  I used the masking technique to stamp the flowers on the main panel and the words on the circle.  I used the Stampin Up blender pens and daffodil and crisp cantaloupe inks to color the tulips.  The sentiment was stamped in the gold ink and the Starburst framelit3132967 was cut using the yummy gold foil sheets #132622.

2014_04_16IMG_1133 As a recap, here are the 4 Easter cards I made using the Blessed Easter stamp.  1 Stamp 4 looks and I am not done yet.  I plan to use the stamp again for my upcoming Flower Power workshop.
