Happy Easter! I will be going to my Parent’s today for dinner. My brother, Erika and Daniel along with Taylor will be there. It’s also Taylor’s birthday today!! Happy Birthday Taylor!! I will post her card tomorrow! Yesterday I had a very productive day craft wise. I got a bunch of projects finished and will finish the rest of them today. The only other thing that I did yesterday was went to lunch with Taylor. We ate fresh! LOL! I did speak with Andrea and Michael for a bit. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday!
In the sprit of the holiday I wanted to share with you what my friend Brian did to the walkway up to the front door to his house…
Now that’s pretty cool! I think that he told Izzy and Savannah that it was so the Easter Bunny would be able to find the house quicker! LOL!
As promised here are my cards from the February class at Scrap-A-Latte. The featured company was Mama Elephant!
Today I’m over on the Can You Case It blog for our color challenge…
I have a funny story about the card. I am a big fan of Dies By Dave over on Etsy. I love his dies and have a few and plan to get more. Andrea and I both got our rose dies yesterday, it’s the die that cuts out something similar to the panels that are included in the Artisan Embellishment Kit. We were on Skype yesterday and both made our cards using the die. My card begins with a base of Whisper White Card Stock and I adhered a piece of the Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum to the front. Next up is a panel of Pistachio Pudding stamped with the Hardwood Background Stamp in Pistachio Pudding. I adhered it slightly askew on top of the vellum. For my top layer I die cut some Basic Black with the Rose Die and then used some Ultra Thick Embossing Powder to give it the “licorice” look. It’s adhered to a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe. My greeting and butterfly are both from the Butterfly Basics Photopolymer Stamp Set and are heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum. I wrapped the sentiment around the rose panel and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. the butterfly is punched out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch and also adhered with a piece of Stampin’ Dimensional. I love that rose plate die and can see using it in many projects! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Can You Case It color challenge. Now head on over to the blog and check out what the rest of the design team has done and make a project of your own to share in the gallery! Thank you so much for taking some time out of your day to come and visit! Again, Happy Easter everyone! 🙂
