Chicks Rule!

I love making goodies for Easter so I'll be posting lots of Easter ideas for the next couple of weeks. This is a card from my stash that I made several years ago and couldn't part with! I just love this cute, little chick! He is from the Good Egg stamp set by Stampin' Up! The patterned papers are also from SU!

A Little Yummy for your Tummy!

This set was made using Delicate Dots patterned paper, and the Polka Dot Punches and Yummy stamp sets from Stampin' Up! I thought it made a cute, Spring set. The pillow box is just big enough to add some M&M's or other little candies.

Too Cute!

I went to my friend's Stampin' Up! workshop in Nacogdoches. The demonstrator, Dara Gloden, sent me this card as a thank you for my order. The base of the card is one piece of white cardstock with the stripe, olive strip, and pink piece layered on top. Then you punch a hole and add a brad so the pink piece can hinge open.

Minimal stamping involved!

These cards were made using the Sweet Pea patterned paper from Stampin' Up! Since the papers already have cute designs,  I simply added an embellishment and a sentiment. Quick and Easy! The felt flower, sentiment stamps, and punches are all from Stampin' Up!

Hi Friend!

Do You Feel Lucky?

Would you believe that out of the hundreds of stamps I own, I don't have a shamrock or any St. Patrick's stamps?! I used this stamp for inspiration and cut 1 petal off each of my flowers to make shamrocks. Then I used a marker to draw my stems and ink the Lucky Me portion of the stamp. The stamp is from the Eight Great Greetings set from Stampin' Up! The patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Origins collection.

So Tweet

In honor of the bird couple we evicted from our back patio this morning! The cat was freaking out so Gary, armed with a patio cushion and rake, went out to knock down the nest. Fortunately, there weren't any eggs in it so I didn't feel too guilty about it!

Sweet Pea cards

Here are some cards I made using stamps and Sweet Pea paper from Stampin' Up! The first is a Z-fold card. You simply score the top of your card and fold it back. The second was made using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit from Stampin' Up! I love the butterflies! They're the perfect little thing to add to any card.
