Chocolate Bunny and Gable Green

This weeks challenge on my demo blog uses the Stampin Up Color "Gable Green".  Now this is probably one of my least favorite colors but I think it turned out really cute. 

I have embossed the bunny in clear embossing powder on Chocolate Chip Cardstock to make him look like a real chocolate bunny (Thanks Kathy) and then I used my scallop scissors and took a "bite" off of his ear (Thanks Keri). I cut a piece of Gable Green cardstock and cut individual blades of grass and went back and cut a few on the diagional.  I also used my daubers and shaded a little Gable Green around the edge of the shimmery cardstock.

I'll be working in my craftroom today as I have an album for hire to complete and plan or doing a little organizing along the way!  It's a beautiful day outside so I hope to sneak out for just a bit!

Get Well Soon

Good morning everyone!  I am actually making cards to SEND today!  I make a ton of cards but most of them don't seem to find  their way to the mailbox. 

I can "officially" use my two-step bird punch since my sister now has hers so I pulled it out first thing this morning to use on my card.  I really like the three different shapes on the card and the "triangle" placement on the card creates a nice collage.

Don't forget my supply list is at the bottom of each post in the "Labels" section and if you have any questions, leave me a comment and I"ll get back to you.

What a Difference a Day Makes - Happy Easter!

I went to bed after I finished my Happy Easter card last night and thought I had done such a good job on a simple little card.  Well, that was last night.  I got up this morning and got Katie off to school in the 28 degree Florida temperature and came up stairs to my humble craft room and took one look at the card and said to myself "WHAT WAS I THINKING???". 

I immediately pulled apart the card and ran that pink piece of cardstock through my dots embossing folder and reassembled the card and NOW it is the cutest little card!  This is a perfect example of how changing one little thing can make a world of difference.

TGIF Everyone!

Happy Easter!

I don't know where Florida went but I sure wish it would come back!  It has been chilly here all day and supposed to be in the twenties tonight!  I am SO ready for spring and some nice weather!  I'm glad they decided to make heaters for Florida because mine is cranking tonight!

I thought I would spring into some warmer weather and make an Easter card with the Stampin Up Chocolate Bunny stamp I received today.  He is too cute.  I have a few other plans for a couple other projects so I"ll post them as soon as I get them done.

Here is the cute little card I made tonight..  TGIF tomorrow!!!

Cherish Magnetic Frame

Happy Monday everyone!  I left work on a dreary and rainy Monday afternoon and came home wondering what I was going to create today!  I knew I had a package coming from Stampin Up so I checked the tracking and it was TODAY!  I was so excited as it was the 2-step bird punch I have been waiting on for a month!  Now my sister and a friend also ordered one so as SOON as I cut the tape on the box the phone rang!  HOW did my sister know I was opening that box with the long awaited punches????????

She said "Now you and Marcy cannot use your punch until I get mine!"  She lives in another state so it will take a few more days until I get it in the mail but I will do my best to get it to her by the weekend but please don't tell her I didn't listen and used mine to create this adorable magnetic frame! ;)

I covered the magnetic frame with Stampin Up Designer Paper and punched the bird from the reverse side. I used my paper piercer and pierced around the wing and scallop oval.  See the Labels below for a full supply list.

Sweetest Ever - Color me Sunday Challenge - Green Galore

Hi everyone!  Sorry I missed you yesterday.  The whole family spent the day shopping!  Not alot of great deals out there but the weather was wonderful and our best mall is an outside Town Center so it made for a wonderful day of being outside in the beautiful Florida sun!  It's even warmer outside today so after this post we are out again to soak up some more sun!

I am the coordinator for the Color Me Sunday Challenge in my Stampin Up demonstrator group.  Each week I post a color from the wonderful selection of yummy Stampin Up colors and each member can take on the challenge of creating something that includes that color.  It's a great motivator to use colors we don't reach for often and sometimes may even become a new favorite!

For my card, I used Green Galore ink on the Green Galore cardstock and stamped the cupcake border in rows for the background.  I then stamped three of the cupcakes on white, cut them out and used dimensionals and placed them over the tone on tone cupcakes in the background.  I started to get REALLY energetic and cover EVERY cupcake but that will be another day!  I'll post when I do as I think it will be really cool!

If you want to follow along with the challenge, create something with Green Galore and post a link in the comments section.  I'd love to see what you do with this weeks color!

Have a wonderful day!

For You

Morning all! It's another chilly morning in Florida.  I am certainly ready to see some Florida weather and green grass.  I don't think I have seen a winter as cold as this one has been and it's not consistent, just when you think it is going to warm up it's freezing again. 

Here is a card that can be used for just about any occassion. I used my dauber and added the shading at the top of the white centerpiece and folded the butterfly so it would have more dimension.

TGIF everyone and have a great day!

Happy Thursday!

Praying for You

Creating sincere cards is not an easy task.  It requires the right colors, theme and saying.  I have created this card to send to a friend going through a rough time.  The bird is a little cheerful but not "cutesy" and the sentiment is just what I was looking for. 

I like to have several of these types of cards on hand so they are ready when I need them.

Thanks for visiting.
