Bunny Boxes

Hello everyone!  With Easter practically here, I had to make these cute bunnies for my boys and friends.  They were just too cute not to make.  :-D
I used the same Silhouette file for Santa Petal box, but used white cardstock instead of red.  I also drew an oval and used internal offset to create the ears.
I also took the heart shape from this mitten Silhouette file to create the nose.  Then I cut thin strips of black cardstock for the whiskers.  I add googly eyes to the bunnies before adding the nose and whiskers.  
 I curled this bunnies ears with a pen.
 I couldn't find my pom-poms so I made some with some yarn and glued it to the back.
Really easy and fast to make.  Great for filling with chocolate eggs and little trinkets!  

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy crafting!

Birthday Cupcake

Hello everyone!  Another generic birthday card made for the guys in my life.  I am determined to make a bunch of cards to have on hand so I have time to play with other techniques.  I find myself keeping things simple but still adding some nice finishing touches to them.
First, I die cut a stitched rectangle and then stamped the background with Hero Arts Looped Circle Background stamps with Versamark ink.  Then I stamped the cupcake and candles from Avery Elle Cupcakes set and color in the candle and the shadow for the wrapper.
I stamped the frosting again and cut that out to add to the top of the cupcake with foam adhesive.  I added Wink of Stella to the frosting and candle.  I stamped the sentiment from Winnie & Walter Winter Woodland set and cut a banner tail before adding it to the card with foam adhesive.

Floral Anniversary Cards

Hello everyone!  I have become a big fan of Altenew stamps and love Marika Rahtu's work.  She recently posted a card and tutorial using the Altenew Peony Bouquet set that made me so excited to try out her techniques.  Her cards and coloring are phenomenal if you have not been to her site!  I thought I give her coloring technique a try by CASE-ing her card first.  I didn't have the same colors so I selected something similar in the pink shade.  After that I decided to vary the design to make it my own.  It is amazing how the dark marker can make the image pop.
Anniversary card made with Altenew Peony Bouquet
First, I embossed a white cardstock with Cuttlebug Kaleidoscope embossing folder and cut it in half diagonally.  Then I cut a blue cardstock diagonally that I stamped the sentiment on from Fresh Squeezed Stamps before placing it onto the card base.
I stamped the peonies using Memento Summer Sky ink and colored them in with Copic markers (B00, B12, B14).  Then I cut the strip of flowers and placed it onto the cardbase with foam tape.  I finished the card with Pretty Pink Posh sparkling sequins.
For this pink card, I used RV00, RV02 and RV23 to color the flowers to CASE Marika's card but did not use any color pencils.



Thanks for stopping by.  Happy crafting!

Simple Floral Birthday Wishes

Hello everyone!  I love Altenew's Peony Bouquet set and it was sold out everywhere, except Doodle Bugs.  This is the second time I order from them and the service was excellent.  Their packaging is also awesome.  See at the end of this post at how they package their orders and I also got a complimentary stamp with each of my orders.  Anyway, I have been trying very hard to make a stash of birthday cards and this layout was perfect to make multiple cards.  
First, I stamped the flowers and the coordinating layers onto a stitched rectangle die cut.  I love how easy it is to use this set.  Then I stamp the sentiment and add it to the card base.  
I finished the card with sequins.
