Happy Easter

A beautiful day here before storms this evening. I hope you all have a great day celebrating with your family and friends.

Today's card again uses an older Stampin' Up wood mount set called Hey, Chick. I used the small egg stamp and a larger Poppy Stamps egg die.  For the sentiment I used a mom unknown stamp and a Lawn Fawn question mark die and speech bubble die.

With all this rain we need an ark. I Noah a guy.

Be kind to one another.

Cover Die Eclipse

This month our Group of Seven Cardmakers are making cards using cover dies over a stamped image. The look is great and so easy. I went to some older Stampin' Up red rubber stamps for my images. The first card uses SU Wonderful Romance colored with Copics. The cover die is from Gina Marie that comes with two cover dies but I only used one. I stamped the image on two panels and colored both, then cut one with the cover die and matched the design and glued together. The second card is a SU  stamp called Blessed Easter. I stamped it in black ink and cut with a cover die from Frantic Stamper, matched it up and glued over the first panel.  The sentiment is from Poppy Stamps. I will add a sentiment to the first card when I use it. 

Don't let other people rain on your day. It's your day, rain on it yourself.


Be kind to one another.

Spring is here

Our Spring is weird so far. Cold in the mornings like in the 20's. May warm up a bit OR it's in the high 60's, low 70's and sometimes both in the same day!

My card today uses an older Stampin' Up wood mount set called Spring Gifts and a die from Lawn Fawn called Peekaboo Backdrop. The images were colored with Copics and the sentiment is Poppy Stamps.

No matter how much chocolate you eat, your earrings will still fit.

Be kind to one another.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

He's here. My second great grandchild was born yesterday at 3:55 p.m. His name is Jackson and he is a burrito wearing a blue hat! I forgot how small they come. I can't wait for his big sister to meet him.

 Life has gotten in the way these past few weeks and I'm missing crafting and hope to get back in the stamp room soon. I did make a quick new baby card. I dug out an old, old stamp of baby shoes by StampCraft and used blue ink to stamp it. Then added a circle from Impression Obession. The greeting is from La La Land crafts.

Did you hear about the population of Ireland's capital?       It's Dublin.
                     (Best I could do on St. Patrick's Day).

Be kind to one another.

Using some pattern paper

I don't have a lot of Easter paper but I did think this one went with the die I used. This paper came from an Echo Park 6x6 pad and the die is Poppy Stamps. The sentiment is also Poppy Stamps.

So much to do, so little desire to do it.

Be kind to one another.

Easter basket

Still working on Easter cards. This one uses the basket of eggs from Sunny Studio and the pussy willow dies are Alexandra Renke dies. Both are colored with Copics. The sentiment is also Sunny Studio. You get to pick which egg is the good one!

Did you know that water is the most essential element of life? Without it you cannot make coffee.

Be kind to one another.
