3 Bunnies

Sorry it's been a while since I have put something up, we had computer problems-all better now!
Currie made this cute card with one stamp. She used Bunny in hat F02503.  Each bunny is colored a little different, she used Copic markers and Copic clear pen.  She did stamp the nose with pink ink and cut them out so they popped up a little.  She put little gems in the flower centers.
She used a Crop-a-dile and put in eyelets on the side and tied ribbon through them.  Eyelets were also put between the bunnies and red thread was used as a great embellishment.  The card looks very bright and can be used for Easter or for a Spring card-
Great job Currie!

Anything is Possible

Currie has been doing some more stamping.  She has done a great job on this card.  Doesn't this look like it would make a cute fairy tale card or a card for some inspiration for a little or even a big girl?  She took the castle from the web site and enlarged it, stamped the unicorn and daisies.  She used Copic markers, Copic glitter pen and a Gelly roll pen to color the card.
This is the inside of the card. I like how she followed the theme to the inside of the card also. It just makes the card complete.  At the end of her instructions, she added "I love your stamps", and we are happy she does!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
I stamped the clouds and dusted Brillance Sky Blue for the background. I stamped the rocks and colored them with Copic markers and filled the bottom of the card with Martha Stewart grass punch and inked the tips of the grass with ink.  The leprechaun was colored with Copic also. The jar was stamped on white cs and the coin pile was stamped on the bottom of the jar and colored with glitter markers. I cut out the jar and put clear lacquer over it. The three coins were stamped on the card, also stamped on a seperate piece, colored cut out and poped up to give them dimention.  I stamped Happy St. Patrick's Day and cut the top off with Spellbinder Circle and then cut the bottom off with Spellbinder Long Rectangle Lg.

Vicki Is Irish

Vicki Hill made this card and sent it to me.  Thanks Vicki.  She used Crackerbox Palace stamp, Petal on the Shamrock E02404.  She also used the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder of swirls. The glitter embellishments are buttons, great idea~!  Here is Vicki's blog site, stop by her blog and get some great ideas.  She has more St. Patrick's Day cards and others that I am sure you will like to see!

A Jar of Shamrocks

This is the regular size A-2 card.  I cut the yellow cs to 5 1/4 x 4, ran it through the Cuttlebug with one of their folders and rounded the corners. The dark green cs is cut to 5 1/8 x 3 7/8, rounded the corners and cut out the middle with Spellbinder Label 8.  I used Label 11 for the saying and the dark green mounting cs.  I stamped out Stipple Shamrock and cut it out. The jar was stamped and the solid shamrocks were stamped with Brillance ink and cut out, and poped up.  Green Faux Pearls are in the corner.
Stamps used: Crackerbox Palace rubber stamps

Full of Luck

St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner. So I made a quick and easy St. Patrick's Day card. 
I can't believe how fast this year is going.
I used a Cuttlebug folder on the white background piece of cs. I didn't put the cs all the way into the folder, about 1" was hanging out the end so the top wouldn't be embossed. I cut a piece of printed paper for the band across the top.  I stamped and embossed the saying and stamped the shamrocks in the corners.  I cut out the saying with Spellbinder Mega Curved Rectangle.  I stamped and embossed the horse shoe on silver mirrored cs and cut it out.  I layed it on the white cs and penciled the inside of the horse shoe, I stamped the shamrocks with Brillance Thyme ink and erased the pencil line. I cut out the shape of the white cs with Spellbinder Label 11 and glued the horse shoe on. I then cut out a gree mat.

Sorry about Accident

This is a card that Claudia Schroedl made. She stamped the feet and cut them out so she could add gauze around the leg. She also has gauze on the inside of the card.

Chick Alizadeh made this card a while back but I thought it would brighten up the day.  In Wisconsin, it is foggy, drizzly but warm for WI in Feb. it is already 34 degrees WooHoo. Being warm out, the snow is melting and looks dirty all over that is why I thought something bright, pretty, and cheery would be good for today.
She used a Spellbinder Pierceabilities and embossed our Blooms word.
