Tri-fold Nature Card

I know this says Happy Easter, but it could say anything or you could just have the image on the front without any words.
I know I am a little behind in posting the Easter cards, I am sorry but I have been staying with my folks and taking care of them so I am not at home with my software and things. It took me days to figure out what I can use on their computer to get my images to post.

I like the job that Currie did on this card, I think you will too.
The stamps she used are Crackerbox Palace stamps also Stampscapes stamps. On all of the panels, she used Stampscape stamps for the background, and the other images are Crackerbox Palace stamps.
Currie stamped the trees and grasses with green ink and the rest of  Stampscapes with brown ink.
The front of the card on the right side with brown ink is one of Crackerbox's stamps, and the water area is chalked. The bunny was stamped and cut out. The image is mounted on printed paper and the edges were distressed.
The whole card is 11 x 5 1/4.
Scored at 3 3/4 and 7 1/2.
The panel that is 3 3/4, is the front of the card. The last panel will be 3 1/4 to be able to fold into the card.
The inside panels are stamped on a light card stock that is 4 1/2 x 10 1/4.  After the image is stamped, cut the inside panels at 3 1/2 and 7 inches. the 1st and 2nd panel will be 3 1/2 but the last panel will be 3 1/4. When you see the card open you can not tell that each panel is not the same.
Use a corner rounder punch on each corner and mount the panels.
The frame on the middle panel is our barbwire frame stamp used with orange ink.
The 4th panel (the one with the chicks) is on the back of the 3rd panel, that is also 4 1/4 x 3 1/4. The chicks are stamped and cut out.
Maybe change the images a little and you would have a great guy card for birthday or Father's day.

Sew a Tree

Currie made this card, and I know this says Easter, but you could use this idea at any time this spring and summer.
You can draw a tree or use a stencil. Poke holes on the outline.
Currie used variegated embroidery thread for the green leaves and brown for the trunk of the tree.
She stamped and colored the chick, bunny and grass around the tree.
Mount on brown card stock and then mounted on lighter brown and stamp a saying at the bottom. Finally mount on a card made with kraft card stock.

this card and I just had to share it.

Jelly Bean Tag

Isn't this a great tag that Currie made?
You can cut a tag out of light tan or a file folder.
Punch a small circle and glue it where the hole will go.
Stamp the outline jelly bean all over tag and color. I am not sure if you can see that Currie used Smooch on the highlights of the jelly beans.
Stamp a couple of background stamps to add interest.
Stamp Happy Easter with blue ink, cut out and use ink to distress around the edges and glue to tag.
Stamp frame, color around the edge and cut out. Stamp Spring in the center.
Stamp bunny, color and cut out and add to tag.
Stamp saying on colored paper, cut out and glue to Tim Holtz Fragments.
Cut burlap a little bigger than tag and fray edges and glue to tag.
Punch hole with Crop-a-dile, put pink ribbon through the hole and add safety pin.
I think this would even make a cute door hanger!
Happy Easter !!

Wanted Easter Bunny

Who doesn't Want the Easter Bunny?
A Wanted Easter Bunny by Currie
She stamped and colored the bunny on the poster stamp on light colored card stock then colored the outer edge of the poster with dark marker. She cut around the poster and mounted it on kraft colored card stock then on black which was put on a white card.
Currie stamped the word 'Wanted' on white card stock, cut it out and mounted it on black then to the poster.
I think anyone would find this card humorous for Easter.

Get Well with Feet

I hope you never have to use this saying, but if you do, here is an idea.

First I used the tag stamp and stamped the saying on it and cut it out.
Then I stamped the feet stamp on the printed paper as well as on Cyrgen white paper.  I colored the feet with Copic and then cut them out with the flower.  I cut off the flower stem, but since I stamped it on the printed paper it was there.  I stamped the flowers that I normally use with the small feet and put them on the tag.
The grass is the Martha Stewart punch.
This saying is also the Martha Stewart punch with the Crackebox Palace stamps.
thanks for looking
