Hippity Happity Hoppity Easter

  • Stamps –
    • Whipper Snapper Designs “Cute Bunny Butt”
    • Printworks “Hoppity Easter”
  • Die – Little B “Labels”
  • Patterned paper – American Crafts “Lovely Bunny” (both sides)
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Brads – Making Memories – Sherbet Flower Brads

I colored this nice bunny image with Copic markers in bright colors. I layered the patterned papers onto a square card base and placed the sentiment at an angle. That accentuates the whimsical sentiment that I’ve had in my stash for years! I repeated the springy look by adding some flower brads to the edges, and yes I’ve had those from the days when we put brads on every card or paper project! Thanks for stopping by and Happy Easter!

  • Stamps – from Penny Black “Loads of Love” set and Simon Says Stamp “Tag Sayings”
  • Patterned papers – Echo Park “Yours Truly” and American Crafts “Smitten”
  • Die – Spellbinders/Just Rite “Nested Oval Medallion Labels”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

Here is another late-to-my-blog card–it is already on the way to OWH! And it is another kids’ love card for the OWH¬†Midweek Throwdown from two weeks ago. I really enjoy making kids cards and I know it must be fun for our heroes to send cards home to their kids and young friends and relatives. I colored this hedgehog stamped image with Copic markers and layered it up with some nice contrasting colors. Thanks for stopping by.


Operation Write Home Sketch #199 – Sent with Love

owh-sketch199-love

  • Stamps – Simon Says Stamp “Square Sayings” clear set
  • Dies – Simon Says Stamp “Tri Square”
  • Patterned papers – American Crafts Dear Lizzy “Lucky Charm”
  • Embossing folder – Cuttlebug “Polka Dots”
  • Stampendous “Detail White” embossing powder
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

For this card, I used Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps Sketch #199 as inspiration. I decided to emboss the entire background to add a little visual interest to all of that negative space. For the top square, I used patterned paper and embossed a heart I stamped with the Simon Says Stamp set, using white powder. For the second, I stamped the background with a heart pattern in the set and then over-stamped the sentiment with black ink. For the final square, I used the patterned paper for both the little envelope and the background, popping up the envelope with a bit more dimensional adhesive. Thanks for visiting.
