Washi Label Punch

Here is a simple card that you could do with scraps of designer paper.
I used the Wildflower Fields designer series paper that is only available through March 31 in the sale-a-bration catalog.
With the Washi Label punch I punched out some pieces of designer paper and a plain white one to stamp the greeting on.  The "just for you" greeting is from the stamp set Watercolor Wings.

Easter Lamb

The Easter Lamb stamp is so cute.
On this card I stamped the lamb image on watercolor paper with StazOn ink and then watercolored with ink refills and an Aqua Painter.  The floral paper is from the Birthday Bouquet designer series paper and the greeting on the card is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

I used the "Happy Easter" from the Easter Lamb stamp (this comes as one image and I cut the words off and put them on one edge of the wooden block so they could be easily used separately) and a piece of the Birthday Bouquet paper to make a banner tag for the Polka Dot Cone Cellophane Bag full of jelly beans. 
And after Easter cards are no longer needed you can use the image for baby cards...
The greeting on this card is from the Petite Pairs stamp set and the striped paper is from the Wildflower Fields designer series paper in the sale-a-bration catalog which ends March 31st.
After watercoloring the lambs I added some sparkle with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush...it is a must have!

Bloomin' Heart Die

The Bloomin' Heart Thinlits Die is beautiful but I don't always want a heart shape.
Here are some ideas for using it behind an oval framelit cut out as an "egg" and then two cards with the die behind the Bold Butterfly framelit cut out.

Flowering Fields

Sale-a-bration will be ending March 31 and I have several cards that I need to share before the products are no longer available.
These all feature the stamp set Flowering Fields.
This card features the Wildflower Fields designer series paper that is also in the sale-a-bration catalog.  The "thank you" is from the sale-a-bration stamp set What I Love.

On this card I just heat embossed the flower images with white embossing powder on Sahara Sand cardstock.  The "hello" is cut out of Cherry Cobbler cardstock with a die from the Hello You Thinlits.
The Night of Navy cardstock is embossed with the Elegant Dots embossing folder.

Here I again heat embossed the flower images with white embossing powder on Pear Pizzazz cardstock and added a piece of Wildflower Fields dsp.  A bow of Calypso Coral seam binding ribbon and a little "hello" banner from the stamp set Perfect Pennants finish off this simple card.

Easter Truffle Box

This is just the cutest little box and perfectly fits a Lindor truffle.
I searched on Pinterest to find a truffle box and the one that I went with is Chocolate Box tutorial by Paper Smycho found HERE .   Make sure you check out her YouTube video to make this adorable box.
These are for gifts for co-workers but wouldn't they also be cute for place settings on Easter.

I used the Birthday Bouquet designer series paper, Honeycomb Happiness and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets, Pool Party Glitter Ribbon, Note Tag and 1" Circle punches.

St. Patrick's Day Treats

Whipped up these cute little treat bags and tags this morning for St. Patrick's Day gifts.
I filled the 1" x 8" Cellophane bags with Mint M&M's.
Made a tag with the Note Tag punch and stamped "Happy St. Patrick's Day" with a stamp from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.
The 4-leaf clover is made using the Pansy punch and cutting a stem out of one of the petals.
To add a little golden shimmer I colored the clover with the Gold Wink of Stella pen.

A Nice Cuppa

I love tea and have a rather large collection of tea cups and tea pots so the stamp set A Nice Cuppa and the coordinating Cups & Kettle Framelits Dies were a must for me.
On these two cards I have them paired up with the Love Blossoms designer series paper stack.

Party Pop-Up

 Party with Cake and Party Pop-up dies along with the Confetti embossing folder were used to make these cards.
They also feature Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay cardstock and inks.
Okay, on this first card I overdid it with the sponge daubers and ink.  I should have just lightly brushed it on but I went all out pouncing down and leaving round marks from the daubers...live and learn...but I went ahead and used it even after stamping my words a little crooked.

For the pop-up on the inside I colored with markers and did a very poor job.
I don't even know why I am sharing this...only as a lesson in what not to do I guess.
Next card turned out better...

This is one of those Z-fold cards I have been seeing done on Pinterest.
It turned out fun and bright.
Love the Party Pants stamp set from Sale-a-bration.

Oh, Hello

Wow, how did it become a week into March already!
Sale-a-bration will be ending March 31.
I just love this cute little birdie from the Honeycomb Happiness stamp set in the sale-a-bration catalog.
Keepin' it real simple with this card using the Whisper White Thick Cardstock as the base and stamping the little bird and saying in Black.
Using and Aqua Painter and Marina Mist ink colored the bird's body then added color to the beak and feet with Stampin' Write markers.

The little birdie card below uses a greeting from another Sale-a-bration stamp set called Perfect Pairing.
Also used is the Perfectly Artistic designer series paper that was available for a limited time so if you were able to get some of that fun paper here is something to do with it.

I stamped the little bird image twice, once on the white cardstock and then once on the blue paper from the Perfectly Artistic designer series paper.  Cut out the bird image from the blue paper, no need to cut the feet out.  Adhere over stamped image on white paper and now you have a blue bird.
Colored in the beak and feet with Stampin' Write markers.
