Easter Egg!

Hello friends!  I made this card using my Silhouette. I cut the card base (the egg) out of Hero Arts layering papers and then added some punched chevron strips of patterned paper. This bunny is from an older Hero Arts set, but I still love him. The flower is also from a Hero Arts stamp and die set called Garden Flowers. I didn't want to distract from the cute scene, so I put the greeting on the inside of the card.

Hope your week is off to a good start!

Online Card Class - Pattern Play

I've been taking the Online Card Class called Pattern Play and I've created the following two cards as "homework."  On the first card, I used the embossed resist technique on pattern paper that Jennifer demonstrated in her video. Sorry about the poor lighting in the photos. I had to take the pictures at night and the lighting was not good.

On this second card, I used Kristina's technique for using bold patterned paper and cutting it into strips.

I'm loving this class! That's all for today. Hope your day is awesome!  :)

Colorful Spring Flowers

It's only 34 degrees here on March 19th.....which is 20 degrees below normal. I'm still longing for Spring.

That's all. :)

To celebrate Lawn Fawn's birthday, I made two cards.  I love the Fanciful Frame stamp on the first card! I combined it with the greeting and the tiny images from the So Much to Say stamp set. I cut the Happy Birthday stamp so I could stamp the Happy on top of Birthday. After I colored the image with Copic markers, I added glossy accents to the balloons and the party hat to give them some shine.  

On my second card, I challenged myself to use only paper from the Fa La La paper pad for a birthday card. I think it worked out well. :)  I also used the Say Cheese stamp set. This is one of my favorite Lawn Fawn sets.
