Easter Goodies

I cased this card exactly from Glenda Calkins
she always has something I need to case :-) Her original post can be found here.
I used the following supplies:

Cardstock: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler and Sahara Sand

Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Sahara Sand

Stamp Set: Easter Blossoms

Accessories: Itty Bitty Flower, Scallop Trim border punches, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Basic Pearls
This is the inside of the card using the Cherry Blossoms Stamp from the same set stamped in a tone on tone with Sahara Sand and over stamped with the Easter Wishes in Cherry Cobbler. I really like this card.

This cute little guy was, again, cased from a fellow demo. There have been several similar to this one posted but I really like the use of the Ornament punch for the bunny's face.
I used the Petal Cone Bigz die and cut it once in Pumpkin Pie card stock then ran it through the Big Shot with the Polka Dots embossing folder. I cut off one of the rounded flaps and glued it together to create a pocket.

The bunny is created with the ornament punch for his head and the large and small oval punches for the ears. I used circle punched for his cheeks and eyes( I don't remember the size for his cheeks, either 1" or 3/4", eyes are the eyes from the owl punch). I sponged the cheeks in Pretty in Pink ink. His nose is a petal from the 5 petal flower punch the was repunched in the 1/2 inch circle punch to get the shape I needed. His hands are one of the flowers from the Boho Blossoms punch. His whiskers are drawn on with the basic black Stampin'Write marker. I used the Scallop Oval( Old Olive) and large oval punch for the sentiment which is from the Easter Blossoms set.  The carrot top is a piece of the large Scallop Circle punch that has been cut down between the scallops.

Hope you like these.
Thanks for coming by.

So Sorry! I've been MIA!

Hi Everyone! I did not fall off the face of the earth even though it has been forever since I posted anything here. I have been working away at casing several projects. These are the projects for the Easter card classes that were scheduled for April 11th and 14th. The projects were all cased from fellow demos.

I loved the whimsey of this first card. It is a total case but the picture I saved for future use was not watermarked so I could identify the original poster. If it is you please let me know so I can give you credit. The supplies used are:

Card Stock: Whisper White, Concord Crush, Pear Pizzazz and Peach Parfait,

The strip of DSP is from the paper stack of the In-Colors. It has been stamped in Black Stazon

Inks: Concord Crush, Pear Pizzazz and Peach Parfait

Stamp Sets: Easter Blossoms and Sweet Summer from the SAB catalogue

Accessories: Scallop Border, Square Scallop, 1 1/4 inch Square, Large Oval and Scallop oval Punches, Bitty Flower Punch, Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding, Basic Pearls, White Gel pen

 This beautiful card was cased from Annette Stewart, the original can be found here.
Cardstock: Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Basic Black and Whisper White

Ink: Black Stazon, Rose Red

Stamp Set: Easter Blossoms

Accessories: Big Shot, Square Lattice embossing Folder, Blender Pen

This is the inside which is as pretty as the front. This is a gatefold card the cardstock measures 5 1/2" x 12 and it is scored and folded at 2", 4", 8" and 10".

 The 3D project is cased from Angie Juda and her post and video link can be found here.

It is so cute in real life!

I used:

Cardstock: Textured Tangerine, Whisper White

Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Pumpkin Pie

Stamp Set: For You Flower

Accessories: Fancy Flower and 1 1/4" circle punches, Old Olive 1/8" taffeta, and retired Old Olive 3/8" taffeta, Tangerine Tango pom pom trim and Pear Pizzazz button found in current mini catalogue, crop-a-dile and Blender pen.

Here is a close up view of the embellishment.
I inked the image twice in Pear Pizzazz and the second one I used a blender pen to remove the pear pizzazz ink and then the Pumpkin Pie Stampin'Write marker to ink the "For You".

Thanks for sticking with me I have many more projects to share so come on back soon to see.
