Happy Easter 2018

Hey Crafters!! Happy Easter! Just quick little cards and gifts for my coworkers today on Good Friday.

These small cards are a piece of card stock cut at 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″ scored at 2 3/4″.

The bunnies are a Martha Stewart punch punched twice, once in brown for a shadow and once in white doodled on with alcohol markers and fine point sharpie.

Chicks are a tiny punch from Michael’s a few seasons ago, also doubled punched for a shadow in orange and yellow doodled on to bring the flat piece to life.

A few sprigs of grass with a green Copic marker. I also made some shadows on each egg (these are really just small die cut ovals from solid and patterned card stock). And a strip of patterned paper glued on for some decoration.

Easter greeting from a $1.00 stamp set from a previous season.

I always keep any extra die cuts or colored images from a previous project and tuck them away in the bucket they fit best in (Easter bucket in this case) so they are easy to find in a pinch.

These magnets are left over from an Easter past and there were just enough to let each person have 2. When I made them before everyone got 4-6 because I made a ton of them!

I get my flat marbles at the Dollar Tree, Michael’s or where ever I can find them. I will stamp a bunch of images on a whole sheet of white card stock. Color them. Punch them out with a 1 inch circle punch. Glue them to the marbles with Glossy Accents and let them dry over night on the Tim Holtz craft sheet.

These magnets are from Wal-mart Super center in the craft dept. They come in a package of about 50 for $4-5.

I like to use E6000 to glue them on.

The hand sanitizers are from Dollar Tree for $1.00, a great steal for 3 in each little pouch and I will reuse the little pouches another time.

May you All have a Blessed and Happy Easter!!

Farm Card Mar. 2018

Hey Crafters!! My wee honey boy (grand baby) turned 3 this month. The birthday party theme was Farm and he loves the large round hay bales. LOL

The stamps on this card are from a cute photopolymer stamp set by SaltBox Studio called, Farm Friends.

My card base is light blue for the sky, it’s an 8 1/2 inch by 11 inch piece of heavy weight card stock from The Paper Studio, scored in half lengthwise to make a wide top folding card. This would fit in a size 10 envelope, but I didn’t use one. I cut layers of landscape to mount to the card base using border dies from Lawn Fawn and Pretty Pink Posh.

The yellow layer is “hay” for hay bails, green is “grass” for cows and brown is “dirt” for pigs. LOL. I love making scenic cards!!

I used some Spellbinder circle dies for hay bales and colored them with Yellow and brown Copics.

Stamped the barn twice and mounted them together with Scotch foam tape.

Two large hay bales were mounted together with foam tape and glued down with Scotch ATG gun. Everything was colored with Copic alcohol markers.

Hay layer was adhered flat with ATG. Grass layer was mounted with foam tape. Dirt layer was mounted with foam tape.

A top view of some of the dimension.

I messed up coloring the legs of this bird, so I cut him away from the cow and glued him to the top of this big hay bale, which worked out perfectly and gave more balance to the scene. Mistakes happen. I’ve invested a lot of time so I make things work. Every detail no matter how small adds character.

Here is another card made with this same stamp set. Ironically, it was for my honey girl (grand daughter) when she turned 3.
