So not Easter images

Mar 23, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards

So the owner of All that scraps has desinged her own stamps!! Check them out as they are oooozing cuteness! The next 3 cards use ALL my goodies from there, and she’s getting in the new cuttlebug stuff soon. Tell her Lauren sent ya!

Anyway-I like using images ALL year, so I took her Easter images and made them all year friendly (I think). All my cardstock for these posts is Bazzil as well. My very first time using it! I have to say, I can definitely see why people go nutts for it!

I LOVE this one. Its a little duck, dressed as a bunny,holding 2 Easter Eggs. I covered the eggs and made her hold a Prima instead! LOL! I loved the sentiment “Believe in yourself” for this cause the duck is trying to a bunny, and should just be happy to be a cute duck.

OK too deep for a cute image but that was my though process. The senitment is by CTMH and is called “faith hop & charity”.

The paper is super cool, and its by 3 Bugs in a rug The Blossom collection. Of course the Mega circle scalloped punch, and the delicious May Arts sheer ribbon which is to die for! She also sells the little plastic thingys to wrap your ribbon around. Not to mention cool storage by CK.

just ducky

Next we have a cute bunny!

bunny thoughts

Where to start….

Well I got this patterned paper by Sweetwater. It is the month by month one. Basically they have DP for every month. Pretty cool, espcially for those who scrap! Well since April is coming, figured I’d use the April paper. Plus I loved the colors.

The thoughtful is a cuttlebug embossing folder-I just rubbed craft white over it so you could read the “thoughtful”. I love these flowers by Bazzil. They are so sweet. The ribbon is also May Arts!

Last but not least. Jenn posted a challenge today to a card that was non gender baby, and well I think this could certainly qualify for a pregnancy don’t you? See the sweet little egg in the flower center? You could put “Congratulations on you eggciting news!” The paper is like my favorite. Love the colors. Its by Piggy Tales, and is the Little Red Riding Hood collection. They ahve the most cute new line-seriously! Hope you likey!

Dont you just wanna go grab a holiday specific stamp and use if for everyday? C’mon give it a try.


Recipe Set- Bake off!

Mar 23, 2007 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards

set for recipew

So I just got some new goodies in from All That Scraps. This paper is so cute! Its called Bake off and its put out by Flair designs. I used it for Emily’s CC116 Really Rust Marigold Morning and Brocade Blue.

First I made the card

egg card

Its a new stamp made by the owner Christine. Isn’t she sweet. I made my own “eggs” by using my coluzzle, and creamy caramel card-stock. I sponged the “eggs” with craft white, then speckled them with my color spritzer and choc. chip marker. She is actually primarily an Easter image, but I knew I could transformher! LOL! This paper was perfect. Once I got started the ideas were flowin.

Next came the basket

Basket sample

This basket is a stamp from Inky Antics. You stamp it twice, cut, score and adhere! Cute huh? I figured some little goodies could go inside with the set. Maybe some sort of mix for baking?

recipe box

Then the big idea hit! This is a magnetic recipe/note holder! It goes on the fridge! I used the Whats for Dinner set by SU to make recipe cards (you could of course fill them out before giving away). I used a large memo cube and took a portion for the dinner note. Remember last year at the Target Dollar spot there were some cute little notepads that looked like aprons? Well, here it is! I knew I was hoarding it for a reason! I found it while I was searching for the memo notes. Perfect match don’t you think?

Only problem was when I was using my cuttlebug to do the “recipe” word I found out I am missing a die!!! Can you believe that? I called provocraft and they are sending my plate. Of course you can guess it was the E! LOL! Figures.

Lesson learned-check your cuttlebug alphas when you first open them.

Box of Easter Chocolates

chocolate bunnies in a box

Well my friend AJ (aka willowsmama) sent me this sweet bunny from Impress Rubber Stamps (and some yummy prima’s)! Thanks AJ! How did you know I loved this bunny. Here is your cyber thank you-:D

Well my mom’s birthday is on Easter this year, so I figured since I am giving her gourmet chocolates in her own Easter basket as part of her gift, that this card would be perfect! Can you say yummy Lindt chocolate bunny? I hope it makes it to her.

This was going to be for the LSC on SCS then I realized it says no choc. or coffee themed items-oops!

I made my own “candy” box. Just cut, scored and folded using the same idea as Alexa’s purse template below! Only ALOT smaller! I used my square punch for the cover. Then adhered the acetate sheet underneath, just like a real candy box. The bunnies are stamped on cocoa cardstock, in choc. chip, the cut out. The box still opens too.

Needed to use my weave bkgd I just got from Cornish Heritage Farms. Isn’t it cool? The ribbon is from Jody’s ribbon share. Its my favorite of the Lollipop ribbon. Anyway, finished with my sweet shop stamp by A Muse. Sentiment is from a retired SU set called Oh So Sweet (i think). Paper is Au Chocolat by SU! If you don’t have it you need it!

Masculine my way

Masculine card

OK I’m sure I’m not the only one who finds guy cards difficult. But I have to say I liked this one alot. Will I give it to “my” dad, NO! LOL! But I still love it.

 A girl on SCS and I switched images (sorry I forget who!) and she was sweet to send me several of this image in vanilla and white. Its Classic pick ups by Stampin up! You may not see that the image is filled in with pearlescent pastels. I like the rustic, vinatage-y (yeah I know its not a word but I like it) feel. I LOVE my Prism paper! Its got a soft textured side which was perfect for this card. Plus it matched my ribbon and PP. I love combining my goodies from different companies. What do you think? Should I buy this set?

Let me know what masculine sets you love, and feel free to enable me with a link. This is my toughest area of creativity!
