All Things Easter

I wanted to try the Quarter Fold Challenge this week, as I have never tried this before- it was so quick and easy to put together!
 There is a tutorial on Splitcoast for this card design HERE

 My card shows so many things Easter- The Cross, Peeps, an Easter Basket and decorated Easter eggs. SOmething for everyone......  and inside:
 A cute bunny too anxious for treats to wait!'

Supplies I used from the store:




I had a blast embossing the Piccolo Accents- the Enamel Embossing Powders are all shimmery and are great to work with! I tool one of the large solid eggs and trimmed out a little bit of the top and made the Easter Basket. Can you see how intricate the cuts are on the piccolos?  I used the Enamel Gel on the yellow bunny, then sprinkled on some Ultrafine glitter.

Have a great day, and hope to see you join in the challenge!

Peep Peep

Here's another cute image from the set Easter Basket from SweetStamps.com

The background panel was sponged using the Art Stencil TULIP LATTICE using Memento - Grape Jelly and  Ranger - Spun Sugar distress ink.  I then sprayed the panel with Ranger - Spun Sugar Spray Stains.

The easter eggs are from Globecraft and Piccolo - Easter Eggs Mini Accents. They are covered with Micro White Enamel Powder, and the gaps filled with Aged Pink Enamel Powder, 24K Gold Enamel Powder. Embossing Powder Adhesive EEPA was adhesive used to apply the powders.

Chameleon Pens were used to color the image: chicks - YO3, OR4, basket - BR5, Ribbon - VO4, grass, YG3, GR3, blue shading - BL3

Paper: Becket Expressions for image, The Paper Company - purple, unknown white for panels

Ink: listed above and Memento - Tuxedo Black for image and sentiment, Memento Grape Jelly marker to color the edge of the white border to the image

Tools: Perfect Paper Crafting - Perect Layers Mini, Perfect Cutting Mat, Sizzix lace die.

Accessories: gems and Paper Glaze for adhesive, foam tape to pop the image.

Lucky "87"

Today is my Father's 87th Birthday!  I think I am 'Lucky' to have him around- so this is my interpretation of the "lucky" challenge this week : )

 I wanted to use a Green shade, as my Dad is 100% Irish. I cherish each visit I have with him (and my Mother) these days : )

Products I used from the SweetStamps.com Store:


Plus- the Braided Borders Piccolo is HERE,  I dabbed Montego Bay Ink Spot on my craft mat, and added in Gesso. I painted that on the Border, then sponged on a bit of ink over the dried color before adding WInk of Stella for shimmer, then teal pearls.

We hope you will join us in the challenge this week.

 AND, please join us Friday for a Blog Hop  featuring the Sweet Stamps New Release Products!
