Quick and Easy Raining Flowers

This is a quick and easy card to make up for any occasion.  Sometimes a simple, single layer card is what the occasion calls for.  Of course I cant go COMPLETELY flat so the Early Espresso flower center is popped up with a dimensional and I added some Linen Thread around the spine.  :)

Masculine Elegance

If you are ever trying to make a card for a man, keep in mind what mostly makes it masculine is the colors you choose.  This card could easily be used for a male birthday despite having pearls, swirls, and butterflies.

Notice that I used dimensionals to pop the saying up off the card.  I just can't have a flat card ;)

Card Stock - Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Ink - Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake
Accessories - Basic Pearls, Curly Label Punch, Dimensionals

Easter Chick

My last Easter project this year, an ADORABLE chick!  All the So Saffron paper is sponged with More Mustard on the edges to give it some accent color.  The staple that holds the bag shut and the head topper in place is hidden under the nose.  The wings are held onto the bag with Glue Dots.  I just LOVE him!  It helps that his belly is full of yummy chocolate :)  And shopping for the candy I discovered that they make Reese Cup mini eggs!  The BEST!!!  You will notice there are none of those in that bag, hee hee.

Card Stock - So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink - More Mustard
Accessories - 1-1/4" Square Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Build A Blossom Punch, Sponge Daubers, Big Shot, Top Note Die, Glue Dots, Small Cellophane Bag

Here is one of my Easter cards.  I just love its fun, spring look.  The flowers are adhered with Glue Dots and then Pearls are added for some beautiful bling!  The coloring is done with ink pads and a blender pen.  This card is done with Naturals Ivory but only because I ran out of my Naturals White from my class.  It looks better with Naturals White.

Candy Carrot Fun

Here is another great treat for the Easter basket. I think this little Candy Carrot is my favorite and very simple. 

And here is how:  After getting two Petal Cones cut out with the die, use Sticky Strip to adhere them together.  In the top, punch two holes for the Satin Ribbon to go through.  Fill with candy and then seal with a bow.  Tie the Taffeta Ribbon in a knot around the bow.  Sponge the edges of the label with Pumpkin Pie ink.  Stamp Happy Easter on it.  Roll the edges with your fingers and adhere to the carrot with glue dots.  Accent the ends with Basic Pearls.

Ink - Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories - Big Shot, Petal Cone Die, 5/8" Old Olive Satin Ribbon, 1/8" Old Olive Taffeta Ribbon, Basic Pearls, Sponge Dauber, Crop-a-dile, Sticky Strip, Glue Dots
