Egg Crate Easter Bunnies for Ronald McDonald House

Hi Friends,

It’s Easter and how adorable is this little egg crate bunny?

TOO DARN CUTE

Had an incredibly FUN TIME three days ago with my ‘peeps’ –how appropriate -PEEPS!
We made 40 Easter Egg Baskets for the kids at the Charlestown and Springfield Ronald McDonald Houses..
The “bunnies” were very busy!!!

All delivered and they will ‘pop’ up at the Houses on Sunday. I think the kids will love them!

Of course I had to make some for my grand-kids. They are so cute and make me smile.

SO…….. I wish each of you a Happy Easter and lovely SPRING!!

As I look outside, I can envision the garden being planted, the lawn waking up and MY POOL OPENED!!!

So much to enjoy come spring…

Enjoy the day..

Enjoy the season!

Hope to see YOU soon!

We used the retired Egg Crates from last year plus some retired ribbons. Of course the body of the work was done simply with punches and adhered with Tombow glue. You can’t see the tail–but IT IS CUTE!…. a big fluffy cotton ball! We added Cadbury Eggs (4 fit perfectly in the egg holes) and voila!

Here is a quick video about the basics of using Stampin' Blends.

 

Improve with Wine

Hi Friends,

 I LOVE this stamp set – Half Full -designed by Stampin' Up! Demonstrator,  Linda Bauwin!

When a Demonstrator surpasses $1,000,000 in sales she/he gets to DESIGN their own set!

How cool is that!!!!!

And I love the cards we just made at my class on Saturday!

For this one, we used a  base of Crumb Cake card stock. Then a layer of Very Vanilla and topped off with another layer of Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and THEN a Gold Foil Snowflake with fresh Fig and Gold Metallic Edge ribbons!

A little stamping, cutting  and Wink of Stella and voila!

What do you think?

Of course this was copied/tweaked from a card in Stampin' Up!

Check this one out and then come back this Wednesday to see the second card we made!

Glittery Thank You Daisy Delight

Hi Friends,

Where has the week gone????

Well to start off your fun weekend, take a look at this card!

I know you can't see ALL the glitz,  but it's there and I think it adds just the right amount to make this card a sparkling surprise!

Daisy-delight-thank-you-card-stampin-up-delightul-daisy-DSP

This card starts out on a thick Whisper White card base and then layered with Calypso Coral card stock and Delightful Daisy DSP. 

The square was cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies

Look closely!!! It adds the stitching!  How cool is that!?!? 

This set comes with circles, ovals and squares!

In my opinion, this set of Framelits is a MUST for any stamper who owns a BIG SHOT!

It's like a basic in my opinion! ( and if you don't own a Big Shot–why not? That too is a basic paper crafting tool!)

145372G

The Thank You sentiment was stamped onto the Whisper White square in Calypso Coral ink. 

The daisy from the Daisy Delight stamp set was stamped onto Whisper White card stock with Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight ink and then punched out with the coordinating daisy punch. 

The gold faceted gems and 5/8" burlap ribbon give this card the perfect shabby chic look.

So what do YOU think??

Wouldn't a set of these make a very nice gift for one of your friends???

Easey-peasey and made with YOUR hands and from YOUR heart!

Check out this video –you can change up the DSP with any of these!

Options, options options!

 

Any of these can be purchased 24/7 in my online store.

Hugs,

Barbara

Delightful Daisy Thank You

Hi Friends,

This card just might be one of my all time favorites!

I love love love the Designer Paper and the format. These will make a lovely gift all boxed up with a pretty tag and bow!

What do you think?

 

Daisy-Delight-Stampin-Up-Delightful-Daisy-Thank-you-card

This card is made on a thick Whisper White card base for that reliable stability we expect from Stampin' Up! 

Then I added a layer of Wisteria Wonder cardstock and topped it with DSP.

To cover the seam between the two top layers I adhered those pieces to the Wisteria Wonder layer and then used 1/4" double stitched ribbon in Daffodil Delight. 

Note that I adhered it with glue dots and then wrapped it around the the back of the Wisteria Wonder layer to attached in the back. (no frayed edges, yeah!). That layer was then attached the the card base hiding those ends.

I then stamped the daisy from the Daisy Delight stamp set in Wisteria Wonder ink onto Wisteria Wonder card stock and then punched out with the coordinating punch from the bundle.

Of COURSE I accented with some Wink of Stella and a faceted gem for a little sparkle. 

The sentiment is stamped in Wisteria Wonder too.
