Happy Easter Card

Hello!  Today I'm sharing this sweet Easter card for my guest designer post over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  The bunnies in this die set are absolutely adorable.
I cut out all of my pieces from the Spring Potted Bunnies in white card stock and shaded them with my Oxide Inks.  The colors of the pots are deeper shades so they would pop on my card.  A few extra carrots were cut out for embellishments.  The strips of grass were cut from the Spring Grass die.
The inspiration for my card came from the pretty striped paper I had in my stash.  The colors remind me of Spring which are perfect for an Easter card.  I layered a piece of white card stock to break up the background.
To create the scene on my card I pieced the strips of grass along the bottom edge of the white card stock. The strips of grass were trimmed on the edges so that it would fit perfectly.
Next, the potted bunnies were placed along the bed of grass.  The carrots were adhered as extra embellishments.  The "Happy Easter" sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms (retired) For Peep's Sake stamp set.
Here are the dies I used to create my card available in the shop:

Happy Birthday Card

Hello!  Today I'm sharing a quick card I created for my daughter's birthday last week.  The color combination is one of my favorites!  The block style paper pattern made this card super easy to create with a few fun dies from Momenta.
I layered the Intricate Flower border along the top edge of each of the colored panels in the paper.  The excess border was simply trimmed off the edges.  Next, I added the sentiment from the Momenta Happy Birthday Cut and Emboss set.  A few enamel dots were the finishing touch on my card.

Birthday Wishes Card

Hello!  Today I'm sharing this sweet birthday card over on the Scrapping Cottage blog for my guest designer post.  With it being the first day of Spring today, the floral design is perfect to share.  This die is so versatile and can be used for many occasions.
I used the Spring Teacup Bouquet for the focal point of my card.  Once I die cut all of the pieces out of white card stock, I watercolored everything with some Distress Inks. I went with a non-traditional color theme for my flowers.  I used some kraft card stock for the cup.
The background was kept simple with some kraft and watercolor card stock.  The frame was cut from the Stitched Wide Rectangle Frame Set
The flower clusters were assembled inside of the frame and adhered to the base of my card.  The arrangement of flowers was spread out to fill up the inside of my frame.
As a finishing accent, I added a sentiment from the My Craft Spot (retired) Tiny Tags 3 stamp set. The sentiment was attached to the cup handle with a jute bow.
I used these dies on my card, available here:

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Hello!  Today I'm sharing a card for my guest designer post over on the Scrapping Cottage blog.  My card was created with dies from the Valentine's release featuring the darling scottie!
I cut out the oversized sentiment in two different shades of green from the St. Patrick's Day Phrases & More die set.  The sentiments were adhered together and offset slightly.  The two colors give the sentiment some depth and dimension.
I also pieced together the Shamrock & Valentine Scottie and the hat from the St. Patrick's Day Cupcake die.  The hat on the scottie was bit oversized for my card so I cut out a tiny bow from the Lovebug Bee & Ladybug die set instead.
Once I selected the colors for my A2 card base, I used a circle from the Stitched Circle Set to create a window.  A smaller circle was also die cut.
The layers were adhered on my card base.  Next, I  placed the die cut circle inside of the window ensuring it was centered.
The sentiment was added to my card at an angle for a whimsical look and anchored with the hat.
Here are all of the dies I used on my card available in the shop:

Easter Wishes Card

Hello!  Today I'm sharing another card for my guest designer post over on the Scrapping Cottage blog. I used a combination of dies from the Spring release for this project.  These dies are currently on sale too! It's been a very, rainy few weeks here in Northern California which makes me eager for Spring.
I reached for sunny yellow and aqua inks for my die cuts.  I also incorporated some pinks, purples and greens which all remind me of Spring. The little bunnies in the collection are absolutely adorable.  I combined the Hatching Bunny, Peeking Egg Bunny, Spring Bunny w/Cart and the Bunny Kisses and Easter Wishes die sets for my card.
I created a polaroid type frame with the Stitched Square Set. A larger square was cut with my paper trimmer and inked.  The blue square was adhered inside of the frame and layered on the card base.
The bed of grass was adhered from one side of the frame to the other and the bunny eggs were tucked into the corners.  I slightly trimmed the bunny ear for a better fit on my card.
The bunny and cart were popped up on foam dots for added dimension.  A few flowers were tucked amongst the bed of grass and also popped up.
The "Easter Wishes" sentiment was stretched across the top of my card.  The whimsical color combination plays off the Spring color theme.
Here are the dies used on my card, available here:

HB2U Card

Hello! This CAS card came together very quickly using some scraps of paper left over from another project.  The background paper has a beautiful textured appearance.  I layered the chevron paper on the die cut background for a pop of color.
The doily was cut from the Momenta Doily die and adhered over a hand cut flag.  Next I used the Momenta Alphabet and Numbers Cutting Templates.  A simple bow in Totally Grape Trendy Twine finished off my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
