Especially for You

Happy Tuesday!
Easter is almost here and I wanted to share my little Peep with you today.
This little guy was part of the new release. I just simply covered him in
Lemon Butter 3D enamel gel and let him dry.
The Tulip Lattice stencil has been a popular little number as well and I just
shaded that in bright green ink.
Topped off with a few more enamel dots created with Deep Red and Avocado and a bow.
A fairly simple, but bright/fun design.
I hope you enjoyed him.  
Be sure to peek in on the latest challenge.  
Scroll down to yesterday's post
for all of the details on how you can win some Sweet Stamps cash.
Until next time...Happy Easter to you.

Here's a fun trick. I've used some of the Spring Release Piccolo products to add a personal touch to a purchased card.

I simply glittered two of the bunny shapes and added eyes with seed beads.

Then took two sizes of flower cut from the borders set. I used pastel chalks to color the flowers and coated them with more Glastique to seal them.

Glue it all down and add a flat rhinestone to the center of the flowers.

Done. Quick. Simple. Fun.

Have a great week.

Easter Quarter Fold Card

Good morning!!  Happy Saturday too!
Today, I am up to share my creation with you for this weeks challenge over at SweetStamps.
This week it's: Technique Spotlight: Quarter Fold Card
I have personally never seen or even heard of this type of card before, but it seemed interesting and even fun to try.  You can find a tutorial HERE

This is what my card looks like completed and folded!!  
The fun comes to life when you open it.  :)
The tutorial suggested 4 squares, but I opted for cutting the patterned paper the length and width of the card, since I knew I was going to be doing a lot of layering. 
This is what the card looks like once it is all opened up.
The sentiment is from the Cute As A Bunny stamp set.
This is what the outer layers of the card looks like.  This was the only way I could capture how cute this card really is!!
Finally here is that cute mocha bunny all colored up and sitting on that fence surrounded by those flowers!!  I really love this set...can you tell!!!  :)  Well I hope you will give this technique a try if you haven't already joined us this week.  The possibilities are endless.

Here are the product I used on my card:

Mixed Media.. Spread Your Wings...

Hi!  Lisa here today and I'm so excited to share this new Mixed Media project I created this week!  I have been crazy busy, and sick lately so I was so happy to squeeze in some time to get messy and just have fun.  Take a look at what I've created with the new Piccolo Accents...

Supplies Used:

I started by wetting my watercolored cardstock and then dropping in various colors from my peerless water color set.  Once this dried I used my ATC mini stencil and white embossing paste on various parts of the background.  Next I embossed the different accents in various enamel powders.  These enamel powders are so beautiful in person, they have a gorgeous shine and shimmer!  I then used the Glastique to adhere the accents to the dry background.  To finish it off I used a sentiment from the Doodle Butterflies Stamp Set.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see your creations in our newest challenge: The Quarter Fold Card!

Happy Crafting!

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!
