Happy Easter

Wow, three post this week, some weeks are harder than other to get cards made, edit and posted but I will try to do better!

This card is another CASE card, this time from Diana Gibbs.  I knew I would need a fast and easy one to make so I saved this one to my Pinterest board for future use, what did we do before Pinterest?!

While her background was plain, I wanted to add some interest to mine, so I used the Decorative Dots embossing folder and really like how it makes the card look.  I also use the Circle and Oval Framelits for the rabbit, along with a 1/2 inch circle punch and the small heart punch.  Sadly, my whiskers leave much to be desired.  Oh I also embossed the inside of the ears using the Square Lattice embossing folder.  Added a little bit of sponging for cheeks.  I did use some retired card stock and some retired ribbon but I think that is alright!  I used Teeny Tiny Wishes along with the Word Window and Modern Label punches.  A few pearls to finish it all off.

Thank you for dropping in today, I hope you have a wonderful week-end too.  Mary

Giggle Greetings

Good mid-week to all of you, I hope you all are having a lovely day so far too.

This card came to me via my inbox from Lee Conley and I really like how she did hers, so I CASE'd it, but I changed the color that I used for mine. I like how well it came together too.

I used Whisper White, Real Red and Marina Mist card stock along with the Polka-Dot Parade DSP.  I then used the same color of markers to color the cherries and the bowl with.  I used the embossing folder, Decorative Dots (which will appear in the upcoming new catalog).  I used my Circle Framelits to cut out the circle with.  I put a piece of Scotch tape over the bottom of the sentiment, inked, removed the tape, stamped and then put another piece over the top part of the stamp, inked, remove the tape, stamp, so I could stamp the bottom part of the sentiment on the inside of my card,

As you can see, I added a strip of the DSP on the inside to.  This card came together pretty quick too.

Thanks for stopping!  Mary

Life in the Forest

Hi everyone, it's nice to be back again, got so busy last week forgot to set up my blog posts.

Today I'm going to share the birthday card that I made for my daughter, Denise.  Her birthday is tomorrow, but I know she has already received her card, so I can go ahead and post it.

When the new Occasion Catalog came out, this cute stamp set, Life in the Forest was in it.  Well I didn't think I would need it but then thought it would make some cute cards for kids, so I got it.  Well, it wasn't long after that the song came out, "What Does the Fox say" and cards using this set popped up all over the internet.  Yep, I'm late to the party with this one, but I knew I wanted to make this card for my daughter's birthday because of some Facebook comments she had made sending links to her roommate.  So this is the card that I made,

For the title, I printed it off on my computer.  I used Pear Pizzazz for the grass, Soft Sky for the sky, Watercolor DSP for the trees, and my fringe scissors to make the grass.  I stamps all of the images with Black StazOn, colored them in with markers and hand cut them out.  Here is a picture of the inside of the card,

The birthday sentiment is from Remembering Your Birthday, and I used the Word Bubble Framelits to cut it out with.  When I was finished, I was very happy with how it turned out!  My daughter told me really like it too!

I hope you all have a great day,  Mary.

Vivid Vases

Good day to all of my blogging friends, I hope your week if off to a wonderful start too!

Today is the last day that you can order and receive free Sale-A-Bration items. Also, there is only one month left to redeem for a free stamp set if you bought six or more of the Best of Series that Stampin' Up! offered during their 25 years of Stampin' Up! celebration.

Today I'm sharing a card that I made with the Vivid Vase single stamp.  Why I haven't used it sooner is a mystery to me.  It makes a really cute card and is oh so quick too!

I used a left-over piece of embossed paper, it was embossed with the Argyle embossing folder.  I used some Gold Foil to mat all of my pieces with.  The image was stamped with StazOn Black ink and then with a blender pen, I pick up some color from my Gold Metallic Encore ink pad to lightly shade the vases with.  Used various color markers to color the flowers in with, nice and subtle, just what I wanted.  To find the size of my Very Vanilla card stock, I just measured the wood block the stamp is mounted on, easy peasy and then just added a quarter of an inch to both sides for a nice, small mat.  I love how it turned out too!

Thanks for dropping in to see me, hope to be back on Wednesday with another share :).  Mary
