Easter Bunny Carrots

I saw these adorable little Easter Bunny carrots on Barb's blog and thought they would be perfect little gifts for my daughter's preschool! I sponged all the pieces for the bunny with pretty in pink and I used the sentiment from Easter Blossoms. My daughter is so excited to share them with her preschool friends!


Four Frames Card & Top Note Tote

I have to say that out of all the Designer Series Paper, the new Paisley Petals is my new favorite! I love all the designs and colors of each sheet! I'm going to have to buy another pack when the new catalog comes out in July! But for now I'll make do with just one. And of course the Four Frames stamp set perfectly coordinates with the paper!

I used baja breeze, chocolate chip and old olive markers to color the stamp and then added the sentiment from the Great Friend stamp set. I punched it out with the coordinating Decorative Label Punch and layered some Chocolate chip behind it. I used two of my favorite sheets from the Paisley Petals DSP and layered them with Not Quite Navy.

For the tote, I started with a 6" x 8-1/2" piece of chocolate chip and scored at 2-1/2" and 3-1/2" on the 6" side and at 2-1/2" and 6" on the 8-1/2" side. I trimmed the bottom of the top notes and added a piece of 1/2" x 8-1/2" for the handle.

Don't miss out on this great stamp set and Designer Series Paper! Order $20 of merchandise and you can purchase one of each item before they are available in the new catalog coming out in July!


Leftovers Can be a Good Thing!

These projects were started with some of my Leftovers - elements from other projects that I ended up not using. I had originally planned to use the Fancy Flower on a box, but went with another color flower instead. So I made the card with the flower as the focus. To make the flower I punched out 5 fancy flowers in Pink Pirouette, spritzed them with water, crinkled them up and then let them dry. After they were dry, I adhered them together and added a button to the middle.

I used the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder for the background of the card and added a Chocolate Chip Top Note stamped with the En Francois background stamp. I added a Decorative Label Punch with the Four Frames stamp set and the Great Friend stamp set.

For the top note box, I started with a 9"x 6" sheet of cardstock scored at 1" from each edge and 4" and 5" with the the 9" side across the top. I cut along the score lines to create tabs and put the box together, then added the top notes to the top and bottom.

For the Top Note box, I actually started with the Eat Chocolate medallion that I made using the Eyelet punch. I used the Perfect Polka Dots to emboss the Top Notes and added some Pretty in Pink Satin ribbon around the box. Now I'm off to add some chocolate to the box!


Top Note Totes

I made these cute little totes with the Top Note die! I cute the top note in half and adhered it to the front and back of some little boxes. For the boxes, I started with a 5-1/2" x 7" piece of cardstock and scored at 2" & 3-1/2" on the 5-1/2" side and 2" & 5" on the 7" side. I cut along the score lines on opposite sides and put the box together. I added a 1/2" x 8-1/2" handle to each box.

I used the new sneak peak Four Frames stamp set that is available this month with any $20 order. Sneak Peek alert: I added the flower punched out with the new Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch from the upcoming Summer Mini Catalog. This new punch will punch out three different images! I'm having lots of fun punching out the different images from one punch!

Here is a list of the supplies that I used!  Place an order and you will receive a free surprise gift from me!

Nature Walk Card

I'm in love with the Nature Walk stamp set and Botanical Gazette Designer Series Paper. They create such beautiful cards together! I decided to create a two-fold card with Marina Mist, Always Artichoke and So Saffron.

I used a 4-1/4" x 8-1/2" and scored at 3" for the larger card and a 3" x 8" and scored at 4" for the smaller card. Here is what it looks like when it is opened.
