Easter Bunny

Design Team

Happy Monday! It's almost April! And have you heard the news yet?
There's a huge new design team here at Sunsational Stamps, a whole new website and a blog hop coming up on April 5th!!
So many exciting things coming our way.  Be sure to click on the badge above, I linked you right to the cute image I used on  my card today and while you are there, look around and get your new account set up!
If you haven't noticed, my last 2 posts have been getting you ready for Easter, it will be here pretty quick.
 So for my card, I let my Cameo cut this cute bunny out, I added crystal effects and some glitter to him.  For the card background I used some die cuts and cute polka dot embossed paper.

Happy Easter

Today I pulled out on of my polymer stamps!
Shocker right?  I've neglected my stamps for so long.
I did some paper piecing with this one, using the Flower girl image as an Easter theme.

I stamped her 3 times, once on the skin tone, once on brown for the basket and once on the pink for her dress.  I then cut everything out with my (gasp) scissors!! NO CAMEO on this card!
Maybe I'm getting ill...

I used some die cuts instead of my Cameo.  We have a local lady who sets up a store at the flea market, she sells her cuts from her dies for quarter or 50 cents so it's very affordable for me.
I used gel pens to color as well as sharpies.

Don't forget, there's a design team call going on! Be sure to submit your emails to Lisa!

Sew loved

Today I'm sharing a sweet mother's day card.  
I kept it simple and added some real twine to the thread image and some gems to the top of the pins.
I was going to add some real buttons but I felt it was too busy.
I wanted it to look like a sewing table.

Kiss me

St. Patrick's day is right around the corner! Where did February go?

I used the digital image and cut an extra pair of legs and lips to pop them up and added crystal effects to her eyes and lips.

Beach day

Today I'm using the little crab and taking a trip to the beach!

I created the background using digital papers then printed and cut out my pieces.
I love adding real shells to beach cards.

Out of this world

I'm using the alien set today for this fun Valentine card.

I used my digital papers to create this card.  I printed everything and let my Cameo cut the pieces out.

Batty for you

Today I'm using Batty for you.  I really love these bats, they are so cute!

I used my digital papers for this one, aren't these colors pretty?

I mounted the bat on an action wobble so when you open the card she sways. SO fun!!
Excuse the clothes pin holding the card closed here, with the action wobble it wanted to pop open.

 I added some heart gems to bling it up.

Sweet friend

Hello, it's Monday already?  How is that possible?

Today I've got a cute little bear with a chocolate kiss.
This is from the Addicted to Chocolate bears set.
I am still trying to get comfortable with my new Cricut and I actually did the print and cut with that machine! I was impressed, no tracing, just import it and tell it to print then cut.  It even cut the little spaces between his head and his hat straps.

 I pulled out my fun acrylic embellishments to add to the fun.
I bought the jar die cut through  I was leary ordering from them since it was only a dollar but it it pretty cute.  It cut the paper fine, but I had to add a paper shim to get it to cut the acetate.
 My little friend looks kind of sad to be trapped in the jar, or maybe he's worried he will get eaten too!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope I made you smile today!
