The Easter Bunny

Hello everyone!  It's Anita here today to share the card I made for our challenge this week over on the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog



I used this adorable Sylvia Zet image by Whimsy called Easter Bunny.  This is one of my favorite images by Sylvia and I think it makes such a beautiful Easter card!  I colored the image with my copics and colored pencils and used some Liquid Applique on the bunny tail for some texture. 

Our challenge is "anything goes" and it's open for two weeks so there's plenty of time for you to join in.  You can find all the challenge details over on our 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog.

Have you seen the adorable SugarPea Designs stamp sets? I am truly in love with their sweetness. Not only are the images fantastic, but each set comes with several marvelous sentiments that coordinate to perfection. :o)

For this card, I used goodies from the precious One Big Hoppy Family!
How heartwarming is this stamp? And it's not even the only image that comes with the set! I colored up these sweethearts with Copics, adding sprinkles of Star Dust to the mommy and Polar White Flower Soft to the tiny tails. I used Springy papers from Wild Rose Studio's Vintage Rose Collection to create my scene.

A little closer peek at one of the lovely sentiments that comes with the stamp set:
I highly encourage you to check out the SugarPea Designs line, as it is filled with character that brings such joy to our crafting and to the recipients of our creations. :o)

Couture by Graphic 45

It is Tuesday...guess what that means??? It is my turn to host this site!
I decided to share a tag that I made using the GORGEOUS Graphic 45 papers called Couture!





First, I stained my manilla tag with some Barn Door and Tumbled Glass Distress inks. I then inked the edges with some Black Soot and Tea Dye Distress inks. If you look real close, you can see where I also added some Gold Embossing Enamel fran-tage. Finally, I rubbed the edges of the tag with Viva Inka-Gold.
I used my beautiful paper from my Couture (Graphic45) 12X12 pad.
I fussy cut one of the ladies and framed her with a chipboard frame from this collection.  I added this fabulous red tulle flower which I backed with some black tulle. I felt this gave it some vintage appeal.
Then I added 2 more aqua flowers to give it a pop of color! Added some leaves and sequin centers!
Hope you like or are inspired by my "roarin 20's" theme tag!
I sure had fun making it!

It's time for another Anything Goes Challenge at 7Kids College Fund starting tomorrow!
Please join in our fun and show us your stuff!
You may be chosen as one of the Top Three or  if you use an image from the 7Kids College Fund Store, you will be eligible to win a gift certificate to the 7Kids Store! WOWSA!!


Items I used for this tag that are available at the 7Kids Store are linked below!

Happy Spring

Happy Spring and Happy Friday!!!!  I am sharing another card I made with this great stamp by Crafty individuals
  
This time instead of using the whole stamp, I just used the nest part. I like  see how many different ways I can use one stamp and this stamp is great for that.  So don't be surprised if you see me using it again in a completely different way. LOL  



If you missed out on my last card you can check it out on our challenge blog.  Or you can always go to my blog for more information.
I hope you enjoy the weekend and hopefully some spring weather :)
Happy card making
Michele

Stenciling with Memory Box!

Happy Wednesday, everyone! It's Karen here to share a new card with you showcasing some new and older Memory Box goodies.

One of the surprises from January's CHA was Memory Box releasing stencils. I was ecstatic! Although I had never used one, I admired the beauty they create and their endless opportunities for color and layering. Since I love Memory Box, I chose one of their new releases to dabble into the world of stenciling. :o)

One of the many wonderful options is this gorgeous Birch Trees Stencil:
I confess I was a wee bit nervous when I began! That all proved silly, as in only a few minutes I had a beautiful twilight background surrounding the birch trees. I taped down the corners to prevent movement and was delighted with my baby step into stenciling. Three shades of Tim Holtz distress inks where used for my sky, beginning with the lightest: Broken China, Tumbled Glass, and Faded Jeans.
The stencils are fantastic in quality and design, providing a blank canvas with which to decorate. Many designs can even stand on their own. For this project, I created a little winter scene. The biggest (and layered) snowflake in the right corner is from the Memory Box Precious Snowflakes set. The sweet Deer Trio is also from Memory Box, which I popped up with foam tape for dimension. Star Dust accents the snowflakes and snowy landscape.

A week remains in our current challenge at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog, so I hope you'll join the fun! We look forward to seeing your creations. :o) Have a blessed day!

Four Little Songbirds

Hello! Hope you are having a Terrific Tuesday!!!  Welcome to the 7Kids Store blog!
Just wanted to share a birthday card that I made for a good friend!




First I inked white card stock with Picked Raspberry and Squeezed Lemonade Distress inks for my flowers and my background panel.  I cut out a 3 3/4 X 3 3/4 square and then stamped the background panel with my new Crafty Individuals Four Little Songbirds Stamp set. I just LOVE these little birds! I think the stamp really looks good for the background.

Thanks for stopping by!

Previous Prima preorder straggler Betty is expected to arrive in mid April. And, the new dies have also had a date push to mid-April, as well, most likely due to manufacturing delays.

Do you have your green on? :) It's Rosie here to share the details on the card I made for the current challenge over on the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog.

Beautiful Dies



 I made a canvas for our challenge over at 7 Kids College Fund - Anything Goes with a Twist Dies.

I used a cloth canvas and painted it with Twinkling H20's then used a sea sponge and used a Gold Silk (by Viva). After the paint dried I used Magnolia Postale stamps using Black Archival Ink. Below I have before photos below. After the paint and ink was dry I created the design on my canvas. I hope I have inspired you today! Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget my celebration candy!
