Easter Masterpiece!


It’s Wednesday, and this week I used High Hopes Rubber Stamps Bunny Masterpiece – S063 for the main image and Egg-Stra Special -G243 for the sentiment. These little bunnies are getting prepared for Easter. I remember making painted eggs every year in the kitchen with my mom and brothers as a child. Do you have an Easter tradition of painting eggs too?

To create the card I coloured in the image and then popped it up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I also popped up the sentiment. I found some old cardstock and cut out some of the little eggs and then edged around each of them with various Tim Holtz colours listed below. The card is 6″ x 6″.

Party Animals


Welcome OCS Fans!

Sharing a fun card featuring: High Hopes – Wild Party and sentiment High Hopes – Birthday Party Animals! I just love these little characters.

 

I first stamped the sentiment using Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Dusty Concord and then to emboss it I used some Versamark and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. Using my MISTI, made this very easy to do. I decided to add a little bit of bling as well, so I die cut a few small balloons and added them on each side of the sentiment. I also decided to give them some fuzzy pop-poms on their hats to finish them off. Enjoy!

Thank You Sew Much Card


Hi There!

My parents recently celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary! Such an accomplishment and we are all so proud of them! We had a wonderful celebration with close friends and family.

I wanted to make my parents something special and unique for their special anniversary and I knew a friend who did quilting. I’ve always wanted to learn how to hand quilt and so I approached her and asked her if she would teach me. She agreed and I was super excited, I was going to learn how to do quilting.

First thing!!!!! I have a lot more respect for all of you quilting ladies and gentlemen out there!!! I had no idea how much work went into it! LOL! However, I loved the final result and so did my parents and family and that made it all worth it!

As a thank you to my friend Marilyn who graciously put up with all my questions and who assisted me on how to cut the fabric and line it up as well as doing the 3 layer sandwich and then sewing the border, I made her this little thank you card.
