The Last Abby's Showers Card

Happy Saturday!

I am sharing my final card made with the Abby's Showers stamps and dies from Simon Says Stamp.  Still using the Lunch Box Note die from Papertrey Ink and the Doily Details die.  This time I put the rabbit and the bear on the front with a speech bubble sentiment from Chit Chat.

These images [not the speech bubble] were coloured with my Spectrum Noir pencil crayons.  Still learning to colour with them.  I think I like Copics better at this point.

Thank You Note

Happy "short week Friday!'  For this card, I used the Lunch Box Note Die from Papertrey Ink.

I plopped him on a Doily Details die from Papertrey Ink and the speech bubble is from Lawn Fawn Chit Chat.

The bear is coloured with Copics, again.  No sentiment...he's ready for any occasion

I'm sharing another fun card I made with the stamp and die set called Abby's Spring Showers from Simon Says Stamp.  I'm sure this layout has been done before.  I'm still on a "use up some patterned paper" kick.  This is from a really old Echo Park pad called Hello Summer.

Supplies:  Bunny/Umbrella Stamps and dies from Simon Says Stamp, Stitched Rectangle from Lawn Fawn, Sentiment from Thank You Tags from Lawn Fawn.

I coloured the two images with Copics.  Happy #bigwordwednesday!

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Beginnings

I totally have not had time to participate in many challenges lately.  But this one really spoke to me and more importantly, a design came to me!

Note the Spring colours and Spring icons like a lamb, tulips, budding trees....lovely!

I chose to focus on the colours and the lamb.  I had to make a shaker card because I haven't made one in a while and they are so much fun!

Supplies:  Stitched Circle Dies [Lawn Fawn], Bow Die [Simon Says Stamp], Stamps [Mama Elephant, Taylored Expressions], Patterned Paper [Echo Park]

Note that the lamb is floating along with the sequins!  This gets rid of that nasty potential issue of crooked images on a circular card :)

Abby's Spring Showers

I hope it's not raining wherever you are in the world today!

I recently ordered the absolutely, over-the-top, super sweet stamp and die set called Abby's Spring Showers from Simon Says Stamp.  This set is just so much fun to play with.  Over the next few days, I'll be posting some cards I made with the stamps and dies.

Here is my favourite of the bunch:

Supplies:  Stamps and Dies [Abby's Spring Showers from Simon Says Stamp], Sun die [Lil' Inker Designs], Lawn [Stitched Rectangle and Landscape dies [Lawn Fawn], Sentiment [Simon Says Stamp Handwritten Borders]

I coloured this little guy with Copics.

Staff Easter Treats for 2015


Dropping by quickly with some pictures of the Easter treats I made for the staff in the office at the high school where I work.

Supplies: Cardstock [Recollections/Bazzill], Patterned Paper is a scrap from my scrap bin but I think it is from Frosty Friends by Doodlebug], Perfect Bow Die [Simon Says Stamp], Bunny Die [Impression Obsession], EAster Bunny Petal Box by Lori Whitlock Cut file # 77336. 

Unfortunately, I took all 15 of them into work already and only had my prototype to photograph.  I found that if I "warmed up" the cardstock where his face is and I avoided the creasing that you can see in this sample.

I put each person's name on the little bunny tag and slipped a bag of chocolate eggs inside each bunny.  I'm delivering them this morning.

Such a fun file from the Silhouette store!
