Everybunny Easter Treat

I’m so excited that spring is almost here!  In anticipation  I created this adorable pillow box and card  for Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.  A perfect treat to put in an Easter basket or to give just as is.  The challenge this week is a color challenge.  Create any paper crafting project with the colors of Real Red, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Daffodil Delight.

I used the new Easter stamp set, Everybunny, featured in the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog.  This set has so many cute stamps perfect for Easter.  I made the box using the Pillow Box die.  I stamped the hot air balloon image on Crumb Cake with Soft Suede and Versamark then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I used a blender pen to add color to the bunny and the balloon.  I then cut out the image and for a finishing touch I used Dazzling Details on the balloon.  I punched the flowers with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack then embellished with rhinestones.  I stamped the sentiment on Daffodil Delight and tied hemp twine around the box.  The 3″ x 3″ card was so easy to make.  I embossed the Daffodil Delight layer with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  The chick image I stamped then clear embossed and punched with the 1-3/8″ circle.  The flower layer is punched with the Fancy Flower punch.

Summertime Splendor cards

Continuing with yesterday’s theme I also created these cards using the digital download Summertime Splendor.  These  beautiful backgrounds are perfect for any of your summer projects.  In my previous post I created beautiful party favor or gift boxes.  Today with the help of My Digital Studio and the Summertime Splendor digital backgrounds these are the cards I created.  Patty Bennett has a wonderful tutorial showing how to make card fronts in My Digital studio.  I made these four cards in about 45 minutes.  So easy!

Hand Stamped Sentiments – Anything but a card – Garden Party

Another sunny week and I’ve been a bit under the weather.  To cheer me up I thought I would play with My Digital Studio and the Summertime Splendor designer series printed backgrounds.  Since this week’s challenge for Hand Stamped Sentiments is – Anything but a Card – I thought this would also be a perfect time to make some favor/gift boxes using the Summertime Splendor digital backgrounds with My Digital Studio.    I also used my Beautiful Wings Embosslits die for the butterflies and some ribbon.  If you want extra embellishments you can also add a border like I did on the yellow and black & white boxes.  The box templates are also from My Digital Studio and can be purchased for a $1.95.  Plus you also get two printed patterns.   These boxes are perfect for any summer party, shower, birthday or wedding.  Remember you can purchase the templates and use them without owning the My Digital Studio Software.  You can use any of the templates and images in any program where you can import images.  I really tried in the photos to show the vivid colors of summer but these are the best of all the photos I took.  Tomorrow I will post the cards I made using the Summertime Splendor DSP digital backgrounds.

I have been wanting to use the Daisy die so I created this cute gift box.  The template for this box is here.  I used my Big Shot to die cut the daisies and emboss the box.  I traced the leaves freehand and scored them in the middle.

Bunny Box

Click here for bunny box template.  I printed the template on Very Vanilla CS then cut it out.  I decorated the front and the sides of the box with following.

Chocolate Bunny and flowers from Vintage Vogue – I stamped the Chocolate Bunny with Chocolate Chip on Very Vanilla CS then cut him out.  I stamped the Vintage Vogue flowers with So Saffron and Pretty Pink on Very Vanilla CS then cut them out.

The small flowers on the green branch were punched using the Trio Flower punch and the branch with leaves was stamped using the Two-Step Bird Punch.  The Pretty in Pink egg was punched using the Wide Oval punch then decorated with the flowers and the Whisper White grosgrain ribbon which was dyed with So Saffron ink.

The small flowers on the vine that are on the side of the box were stamped using Regal Rose and Old Olive markers.  The stamp is from Tiny Tags.

Half pearls from the Pretties kit were adhered to the center of the flowers.

The small tags were stamped with stamps from Tiny Tags on Very Vanilla CS then punched using the Medium Jewelry Tag punch.
