Happy Easter SSC203

March 21, 2019

HAPPY Easter and/or Happy Passover to all of you that celebrate!  

This beauty bloomed in my yard this week.  It is just the right color for this week's color combo!  I love the white azaleas that are blooming everywhere in Atlanta. 

I also looked out the window a few minutes ago and saw the Easter bunny in my yard!  Hope he leaves some treats! 

It's time for a new challenge at Sunday Stamps!

My card is created on a white card base.  I cut a yellow scalloped rectangle for the top layer.  I cut a large white scalloped oval for the top layer.  I cut the rabbit using the Simon Says Stamp Filigree Bunny Die.  I distressed a piece of white card stock with three Distress Inks --Squeezed Lemonade, Dusty Concord, Mowed Lawn.  I placed part of it behind the filigree rabbit.  I used the other part to create the Easter sentiment using the SSS Easter Die.  Happy was stamped using black ink.  A few yellow sequins were added to complete my card.

Swinging By With a "Hi" PP438

Happy Easter and/or Passover to all that celebrate!

Addison, Victoria and Robert came to visit me during their Spring Break.  We had so much fun dying eggs.  It is always so exciting to see the expressions on their faces!  I hadn't done this in years, and I think I had as much fun as they did!   

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!  The amazing Ann Marie is our hostess this week and she has a fabulous Clean and Simple challenge for all of us.  I love "Paper Piecing" so, I found this challenge extra fun!  


What do we mean by Clean and Simple?
  • Minimal layers and embellishments
  • Plenty of open space, aka "white" space
  • Simple and uncluttered

My card is created on a white card base.  I cut the top layer with watercolor paper.  I trimmed it with the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches Die.  I smooshed Twisted Citron and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide inks to create the background.  I splattered some water on it after it dried to create this look.  The little girl is from MFT Pure Innocence Start Each Day With A Whee.  I colored her with Copic Markers.  I paper pieced her shirt and shorts with scraps I found in my stash.  I cut her out using the matching dies.  I stamped the sentiment in black.  It is from the same stamp set.  I still love to swing so, this card makes me smile!

I Love Reading! Inspired By #68

April 18, 2019

It's time for another fun challenge at Inspired By.  

What inspires you about this photo?   Is it the colors, globes, books, plants???  We can't wait to see what you create!

My card is created on a Kraft card base.  I was inspired by the globes in the photo and found some map paper in my stash and used it at the top of my card.  I added a strip of wood grained paper for the bottom of my card.  I used the MFT BB Our Story set to create the items in my card.  I colored them with Copic Markers.  I paper pieced the chair.  All of the pieces were cut out using the matching dies.   The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp  Bookworms Rule! stamp set.  I added a pink enamel heart in the center.  Wink of Stella was added to most of the items for shine.   Since the theme is Earth Day, I printed this on the title of her book.   I think she is enjoying this book, don't you?
