Easter Tags and a Card

Good Morning!  I have a tag I put together to hold a chocolate square and another bunny card to show you today!
For the first project I created my own tag out of PTI Tag Sale #10 and MCT 4x4 Journal Die and More dies.
The Bunny, eggs and sentiment are from Hippity Hoppity stamp set and die set.
 I cut two of the frames out and attached them back to back on to the tag.  On the back I attached a cute Easter chocolate treat.  The Happy Easter sentiment is from Polka Dot Basics #1.

Bright and Cheerful Duck Card

Hi!  For the first time in a long while I am entering a challenge!  It feels good!!!
I've been way out of practice!  I'm entering this card into the PKS color/photo inspiration challenge you can see here.
 The color and photo for the challenge inspired me to use the bright papers and cute little duck.   I cut the bottom layer to size and then place the top layer where I wanted it to be.  I carefully turned both papers over and marked where I needed to cut the green paper.  I then glued the green paper within the marks and then cut of the edges that hung off.
 I used chalk and a make-up brush from ELF to do the cheeks.  I've used a couple of things (cotton swab, paint brush, sponge) to make the cheeks but a small soft make-up brush has been my favorite.
My Supplies:
Duck w/Egg  -  Peachy Keen Stamps and Cottage Cutz
The Spring and Summer Mat Stack  -  DCWV
Hibiscus Burst, Summer Sunrise, Lemon Tart and Orange Zest Card Stock  -  Papertrey Ink
Scattered Straw and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks
Copic Markers, Glossy Accents
Sentiment, Happy Hunting stamp set  -  My Creative Time
Chalk and eye makeup blender brush for cheeks  -  ELF

I'm so glad you stopped by today!  I have two more posts to show you this week so I hope you come back!  See you next time!!!

Hello From The Easter Bunny Card

Good Morning.  Another Easter Card to show you today.  I'm trying to get all my cards made and sent by Thursday but it's hard with the kids on Spring Break!
 The Speech Bubble Border die is my new FAVORITE thing!  Lots of possibilities.  The best place I have found to get Lawn Fawn products is , they have a good selection and shipping is free over $25.
I cut a tiny slit in the patterned paper and slipped in the butterfly paper clip.  Then I added a gem for a little sparkle.

Tag Sale #10, Wonderful Words: Hello, Polka Dot Parade #1 stamp set and die set  -  Papertrey Ink

Hippity Hoppity Easter Candy Tags

Hello, TGIF!!!!  My kiddos are on spring break after school today!  I'm so happy for them.  It has been such a loooooong cold winter!

First is Miss Isabel's Pink!

 Next Master Zachary's Green!

Now, Miss Cassie's Purple!

I love to make them a little something special in their favorite colors.  I don't do many fancy scrapbook pages for my kids but what I DO like to do is put the card or tag I made for them in a page with a picture or two from the occasion.

Tremendous Tags dies,
Hippity Hoppity stamp set and die set,

Daisy Tags for Treat Bags

Hello my friends!  I made some tags to attach to pretty organza pull string bags I filled with some fruit gems candy.  One of my family's favorite treats!  I used 2 of My Creative Time's die sets for these; Stitched Daisy die and Just Tags die set.
I was able to use mostly scraps to put these together.  It makes me feel good to use up little pieces of paper I had laying around instead of throwing them out.
 I embossed the "wish" sentiment to make it stand out nicely on the patterned papers and I added a few gems for some sparkle on some of them.
 These were a very fun, quick project to put together!  Wonderful gifts to make if you need a bunch.

My Supplies:
Stitched Daisy die and Just Tags dies  -  My Creative Time
Sentiment  -  Heidi Swapp stamp set
Versamark ink pad and Black Embossing Powder
Organza Bags  -  Gifts International
Lemon Tart card stock  -  Papertrey Ink
Assorted Scraps
Twine and Candy

As always, thank you for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderful day!  I will be back with another project tomorrow.  See you then!!!

Journal Crazy!!! - Flip Flops and Video Games

Hello friends!  I went a little crazy when I was making journals today!  I apologize for this post a being so picture heavy, but I just couldn't help myself.  I used a new stamp set from Papertrey Ink called Wet Paint along with a few oldies too!
 Here's Journal #1.
I embossed the sentiment with White Embossing powder and I LOVE how beautiful this set looks stamped this way! 
The flip flops are from the Flipping Out die set.

Here is Journal #2.  Same thing but different paper and I embossed this sentiment with Clear powder and Orange Ink.

 Journal #3.  I added a little cute trim and some flowers to the flip flops.  I love this paper from W R Memory Keepers called White Out.  Each 12x12 sheet had 4 6x6 patterns.  That's why I couldn't stop making more, so easy to put together!

For Journal #4  I used PTI's Game On stamp set.  I needed at least one journal with a boy theme.  I also used the new Limitless Layers 1 1/2" Squares.

My Supplies:
Wet Paint stamp set, Boy Basics: Game On stamp set, Flipping Out die and Limitless Layers 1 1/2" die set  -  Papertrey Ink
All Journals  -  Michaels
Orange Ink Pad  -  Colorbox
Versamark Ink Pad
White and Clear Embossing Powders
Assorted Trim and Ribbon from my stash

I hope you enjoyed my projects today!  Have a good one!
See you next time.
