Lace Border Easter Card

I can't remember whose original idea for the Lace Border punch was, but I just had to try it!  I folded a 4 1/4 x 11 piece of  Pool Party cardstock in half and then punched one side with the Lace Border punch and then flipped it over and punched the other side.  I have so much SAB paper left over and I love it, and I think it is great spring colors, I used that as my pattern paper on top of a piece of Calypso Coral under the cross that I cut out from a Lattice die.  I then punched out, yep, that Itty Bitty flower, because I LOVE those little punches, and added a pearl to it.  I then stamped Happy Easter from Delightful Dozen stamp set and punched out with Modern Label punch.  This may be my last posting for Easter unless I get some time today to stamp, but if so, HAPPY EASTER my friends!

Easter Basket/Punch Art Bunny

I had this tutorial for a long time now and finally got around to trying it.  I had fun making it and have big plans for it for something for summer themed.  I had a BLAST making the bunny, made them last year too, but this is so cute and so little.  I used the small oval punch(body), 3/4 circle punch for the head, and 5 Petal Flower punch for the ears and of course those Itty Bitty punches are some of my FAVORITES!  I added a pearl to his tail to give some depth.  I used the 1 3/4 circle punch for the tag and punched out Basic Gray cardstock, stamped the Happy Easter in Basic Black onto it from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and tied it onto the basket with the White Baker's Twine.  ****Pardon the extra little hole punched over on the right hand side, truly didn't see it until after I uploaded it*****

Sweet Shoppe Vanilla scented card

This is one of my last workshop cards I did for SAB. I used my color coach for this one because I am not a "purple fanatic" so I had to find some colors "out of my comfort" zone to go along with the Wisteria Wonder in the DSP on this card.  So, I chose Cherry Cobbler and Pink Pirouette(the cherry on top).  I stamped the cupcake stamp with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with Vanilla Scented Embossing Powder in the Occasions Mini, onto Crumb Cake cardstock and cut it out.  I then stamped the So Sweet in Cherry Cobbler.  And for the Large Pearl, I used a Sharpie Marker and colored it close to Pink Pirouette as I could, but it's more like Pretty in Pink.  I used my Edglelit die and cut out one in Wisteria Wonder  and layered it behind the cupcake cutout.  I tied a nice big Cherry Cobbler bow around the whole thing and viola!

I have to admit, FREE stamps DO stamp best! I earned this set FREE during the Booking Blitz back in January.  I had to use this stamp set because,well, it was FREE!  It's paired up with the stamp set "Gnomenclature"(the sentiments that go with the Gnome Sweet Gnome set in the Ocassions Mini catalog that is availabe until April 31st.  I traced a door shaped card and then another and cut it into strips and inked the edges and then laid them on top of the solid one to give it dimension.  I then punched out the circle for the gnome to pop her head into. Stamp the sentiment onto Crumb Cake cardstock, cut it out and stuck it to a toothpick.  I stamped the grass and mushrooms and colored them with my markers and cut them out and adhered to the card front and stuck my gnome side in behind it.
