Another Mother’s Day card

I created this mother’s day card for PPA38 Sketch Challenge.  I used the Sending Love DSP which will only be available until the end of this month so be sure to place an order before it’s gone.  I love this paper because one side has a glittery side and the other a beautiful print.  I used the glittery pink daisy print and for the flowers I stamped the heart flower image on vellum and punched out with the scallop circle punch.  I then used my bone folder to curl the petals, used a rhinestone brad to attach to the Whisper White CS square.  A very easy card.  So feminine and soft.

Fancy Easter Basket

I recently purchased this template from Waltzingmouse Stamps and I love it.  You get two basket versions.  One tall basket like in my photos below or a small basket.  You choose.  But whichever one you decide to make they will turn out fabulous.  I am also submitting my basket for PPA35 – Anything but a card challenge.  I used the Sending Love DSP.  I am sad to say I’m down to my last few sheets.  I need to order more before the April 30th deadline.  On may May 1st a new mini catalog will take its place.  I am so excited.  The new catalog is full of new products and you’ll want them all like me.  So if you want any of the products in the current occasions mini, order soon before April 30th.  Now on to my project.  I am making a few of these baskets for gifts and for my Easter table decorations.  I decorated eggs with the Eggcellent kit which I am sorry to say is sold out!  But the basket with these eggs will be for my Easter table.  I’ll fill the ones as gifts with chocolate eggs.  Now who wouldn’t want a basket filled with chocolate eggs.

Eggcellent Eggs and Chocolate Bunny

This past weekend I had a workshop and one of the make and takes was the chocolate bunny basket.  So easy!  I CASED the idea from Angie Kennedy Juda.  The pink basket with yellow button is also very easy to make.  See below for recipe and templates.  The eggs were decorated using the Stampin’ Up’s! Eggcellent Eggs Kit.  At $9.95 this kit is a great value because it contains two 6″ x 6″ sheet of rub-ons, 24 die-cut egg stands, two 6″ x 6″ sheets of self-adhesive rhinestones, four sheets of 6″ x 6″ die-cut flowers in four colors and one 6″ x 6″ sheet of die-cut leaves.   There’s still time to order for your Easter projects.

For the Birds

I am a big fan of the new Two Step Bird and Fancy Flower punches.  I made these two cards with scraps and it took no time to make them.  The new slim shape makes them easy to store and they take up less room.  Both cards use scraps from the new Sending Love Designer Series Paper.  Because each sheet features beautiful prints and a sparkly side it’s so difficult to choose which side to use.  It’s also very versatile for many occasions.  I am buying more because lately I have been using them for all my cards.
