Hoppy Easter!

Happy Easter and Happy April!

 

I finally got back in my craft room this morning. I created this card for my nephew using 3 different challenges, listed below.

 

2015 Card 31 - Taylored Expression Somebunny Loves You-001

 

I used my new Taylored Expressions Somebunny Loves You stamp set along with the coordinating die cuts and the Little Bits Easter Confetti and Carrot die cuts.  I also used TE’s Rolling Clouds and Rolling Hills dies in building my scene. The paper is some old We R Memory Keepers Peep from several years ago.

 

I used the following challenges in making my card~

 

the new sketch at Sweet Sunday Sketch

the die cut challenge at The Paper Players

and the challenge at The Friday Mashup (using Easter Critters, I skipped mashing up the two challenges)

Friday Mashup 4-3-15

 

I hope everyone has a wonderful day! We saw my nephew a few hours ago and will be going up to my parents shortly for Easter dinner.  Tonight is Opening Night for baseball! I am SOOO excited. One of my fave pitchers is now playing for the Chicago Cubs and he’s the pitcher tonight. ESPN is airing it so I will get to see him!

 

Supplies~

Stamps: Taylored Expressions Somebunny Loves You

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (for critters), Ranger Archival Jet Black (sentiment)

CS: MFT Sweet Tooth, Gumdrop

PP: WRMK Peep

Other: all TE – Build a Scene Rolling Clouds and Rolling Hills; Little Bits Easter Confetti and Carrot; Somebunny Loves You coordinating dies

 

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!

 

I made my last card for this Easter earlier today for my nephew.  The bunny is cut with felt, hopefully he will like that 🙂 He’s not feeling well so instead of him coming here, we may go see him later today to give him his Easter goodies.

 

Card 14 - April2014 MFT LJD Easter Bunny

 

Funny story…the little green “grass”  is actually the top for the carrot.  I had no idea until today!  I used it on the calendars I made earlier in the month and it just dawned on me when I cut the carrot die cut that I hadn’t see the top for it…duh, it’s there just not what I thought it was.  I had a much easier time this time lining up the stamps on the die cuts. I think having the natural light in my room helped a lot.

 

Here is the inside~

Or we can call this post ” Late for Dinner” lol

I am famous for making cards at the last minute but usually it doesn’t make us late…tonight we were 15 minutes late to Easter dinner at my Mom’s. Good thing we only had to walk up the street!

I used this pretty calla lily stamp for the first time. I bought it from Taylored Expressions a year or two ago. Since it’s a bit large, I went with a square card and the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 was perfect for it. I really wanted to add Diamond Glaze to the vase but I didn’t want to carry a wet card to my Mom lol

I’m All Ears!

Hello!

 

I was able to get two of this sweetie pie colored up tonight but only one card finished. I got started way too late lol…was enjoying relaxing on the couch watching my baseball game. Go Sox!

 

This is my entry for the MFT Weekly Sketch Challenge~

Card 5 - April2014 Im All Ears 1

 

I spent a lot of time coloring her dress…haven’t practiced pleats in a very long time! I’m pleased with how she turned out. Always room for improvement but considering I haven’t colored much lately, not too shabby!  I paired her with MFT cardstock and some adorable Hello Spring Doodlebug Design paper.  I found it under my desk when I was cleaning the other day LOL.

 

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:

MarkerPop #40 – Spring

My Craft Spot #132 – Happy Easter
