Easter Bunny

April is here and that means that Easter will be here soon.  This year it will be very different for families.....however we still need to have positive thoughts...so I am sharing this card made with the cute little bunny from Fabled Friends in the Annual Catalogue!


I have to admit that one of the papers is from the Coordinating Product Release that is now over but I just loved the checkered pattern with the Rose Gold that looked great with the Petal Pink cardstock and ribbon. I also used some of the So Very Vellum that was a Sale-A-Bration item in the Pool Party colour that is layered over the DSP.

The bunny is stamped onto Whisper White and coloured with Stampin' Blends and then fussy cut out with snips.

ICS Blog Hop April 2020 - Timeless Tulips


Hello and Welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share blog hop for April. 
This month our theme is "It's A Girl Thing, Monochromatic Style."

We are allowed to use black, white or very vanilla along with our colour choice. 
 Without this I really find that monochromatic cards are just too hard to make when the paper and ink all have to be the same colour!
My chosen colour is Purple Posy and this is my card:


The Purple Posy stamp pad is no longer available so I used the Purple Posy Stampin Write Marker to colour my stamp with colour before stamping the image.

The White Crinkled Seam Binding and Pearl Embellishments were coloured with the Dark Purple Posy Stampin Blend.  The scallop ribbon edge at the top and bottom of the DSP piece is the  Purple Posy Scalloped Linen ribbon cut in half and added to the back.








Use the next button to hop over to see the project created by June.

PPP Blog Hop No Matter the Weather


Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kit is that you can follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as they were designed, or use the supplies as a starting point and let your creativity run wild.
On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use the
March Paper Pumpkin kit: "No Matter the Weather".

With the current health crisis around the world I think the title 
of this month's kit is very appropriate!

These are the original cards:


Kit contains supplies for 12 cards and envelopes (4 cards of 3 designs)
Notecard size: 5" x 3-1/2" (12.7 x 8.9 cm)
Envelope size: 5-1/8" x 3-5/8" (13 x 9.2 cm)
Coordinating Colors: Balmy Blue, Basic Gray, Calypso Coral, Grapefruit Grove, Gray Granite, Pear Pizzazz, Petal Pink, Shaded Spruce, and So Saffron


This is my alternate project:


I made a card using one of the card fronts which I matted onto Balmy Blue and then added a Basic Gray card base.

I used the stamp set that came with the kit and also the Bonus free stamp set plus some of the pieces from the kit.  I stamped the images I wanted onto the back of the card that I cut apart.

The stamp set that is included with the kit and the free stamp set:





 The supplies for my projects are listed below.
