Easter Egg Card

Hello Everybody!

It's my turn over at Unique Laser Designs, and I have created this CAS card.

Here's my card:

Here is a close-up of the eggs.  I used TH Distress Paint Spun Sugar and Peeled Paint on the wooden eggs.  Then I applied Crystal Stickles over them.  When you buy the eggs there are 6 different designs in a pack-so there will be more egg projects! :)

Other Supplies: Stencil-Dylusions/Ranger, light modeling paste, gelatos-spearmint and lime, Hampton Art Stamp

Thank you for stopping by!  Over at Unique Laser Designs we are hosting a challenge-go see!

Mixed Media Bunny

Hello Everybody!

I am working on my Easter cards-and I am loving the prompts that the challenges are offering.  These prompts are helping my mojo! :)

So here is my mixed media bunny card.  Here are the challenges that I am submitting it to:

Digi Haven: Easter Challenge with a Twist-Use the Color Brown.  I used kraft paper for the background and walnut distress ink around the bunny square.

Moxie Fab World: Styling with Stencils Challenge in the Moxie Fab World:  I used a Heidi Swapp stencil and mustard seed distress paint for the yellow chevrons on the right side of the bunny.

Make My Monday:  Easter

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge:  Happy Easter

Catch the Bug Challenge Blog: Anything Goes

Here are some details on my card:
I used a Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous for the pink design.  I used Stampendous pink embossing powder.
The bunny is from Bugaboo Stamps.  I used copics to color him and distressed the square.  I also used walnut ink distress ink around the edges.  The flower strip is from Wasau Paper and a Martha Stewart punch.  The chevrons are from mustard seed distress paint and a Heidi Swapp chevrons stencil.  Then some random sequins.  Oh-also, I used a cream white cat eye around the edges of the kraft paper to soften them.

Here is a little big of a close-up.

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time my friends..have a good night! :)

Cute Lil' Bunny

Hello Everybody!

I finished an Easter card this evening.  I used a Bugaboo waving bunny on it.  I think he is super cute!

I colored him with Copics.  I used the swiss dots embossing folder for the purple cardstock.  The flowers are from a trim I have.  And the background paper is a scrap (Yay!).  I used a little pink ink around the bunny square too.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...keep craftin'! :)

Tag of Zeal

Hello Everybody!

I am back real quick tonight to post this tag that I have made for the challenge at DragonsDream Tag It On: Challenge #163 Letter Z and a face.

For the base of the tag I glued a dictionary page to it.  A page from the letter Z!  I used modge podge and it worked well-no bubbles or anything.  Once dried I used a brayer to apply Distress Paints-ripe persimmon, spiced marmalade, and mustard seed.  Then I used white (picket fence) and brayered it over so it was the last color applied.

I bought this face stamp a few months ago, and this is the first time I used it.  Yay!  It's from Hampton Art.  The light bulb is from Prima.  Zeal is spelled out using a Tim Holtz Stencil.  I used some bright orange ric rac from my stash, also.

Here is a close-up.  They look enthusiastic, right?  ;)  Maybe they got a zealous idea!  Anyways-this was a super fun challenge.  I enjoyed making this tag and breaking in this face stamp.  I look forward to the next challenge :)

Until next time my friends...I'm gonna get ready for some zzzzz's.  :)

Spring Card

Hello Everybody!

Spring is in the air-and maybe on your car and sidewalks.  ;)  But there isn't any pollen on this card-just a beautiful tree with flowers!

Today it is my turn to post a project over at Unique Laser Designs.  This tree started off bare.  So I added some flower soft to create the look of flower buds on tree.

And here is my card.  I used paper from Echo Park, Pink Paisley, and white card stock.  I also used some light modeling paste and a stencil from Dylusions for the left side and bottom corner.  The ribbon was in my stash.  I have had it so long that they used to be called fibers and were all the rage.  (LOL!)  :)

This is flower soft.  It is sort of like pretty colored pencil eraser shavings.  It comes in different colors and blends.  This one is Soft Pea.

Here is a side view of my card.  Love this tree! :)

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...Happy Spring!
