Thursday, March 28, 2024 Hello Sunshine Bunny card

 Hello Sunshine!  I am so excited about this card.  I created this card after taking this class as part of SBC Fest 2024.  The possibilities of this Rabbit die set are infinite.  I am sending this to my niece and nephew. I hope they display these cuties. I made it an easel card so it would be easy to display. I never make easel cards. It was super easy and I appreciated the challenge of designing for a different fold.

Here's a close up of all my die cutting.  I used the papers for most of the die cutting, however, the grey of my boy bunny is out of my stash as is the black, white and pink papers.

I stamped the sentiment inside.  I also stamped the carrots and fussy cut each piece. is coming out with the matching die set soon.  You know, I will have to have it!

American Craft Pine pigment ink (carrot foliage)
Ranger Archival Russet ink (carrot)
Momento Tuxedo Black ink (sentiment)
Quick Quotes Feather Gray Powderpuff chalking ink
misc card stock

All the product came from the SBC Fest bundle kit available HERE and let me tell you it is a bargain!  Of course, there's more accompanying product that I need to now purchase.  LOL

Stampin Up Flower Patch Wedding card with Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge

Hello and welcome to today's post for Atlantic Hearts challenge sketch #570.  I used this sketch to create a card my eldest niece's recent nuptials.  I used primarily Stampin Up product for this one.  I adore matching stamp and die sets.


Here is the sketch.

Here's a close up of my sentiments and flowers. I stamped and embossed the flowers before die cutting. I did the same for the center of the flowers.

And one more look at the dimension of the flowers.

DCWV Stardust Stack: Flanders layout for Sketches in Thyme

Good morning sunshine! Today I am scrapping some of the few photos I like of myself.  These are from a dinner in Flanders, CT. It's a trip we took in 2020 so you know those smiles, laughter and sharing meals with friends were few and far between.  I used DCWV Stardust Stack papers and from there I picked up whatever I had in my stash that worked to embellish.  Of course, I was inspired by my monthly sketch from Sketches in Thyme Facebook Group.

Here's the sketch.

Sizzix Fold a long Rainbow card for Spring

Spring is right around the corner so I created a subtle bright rainbow to help usher in the new season.  I love rainbows and I love the wow of special folds.  This made all the more exciting by being a shaped card and all the more easy with the Sizzix die set.

I stamped this sentiment inside the card, but I can't for the life of me figure out the set from which it came.

Stampin Up All Boxed Up with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challange

Welcome to my blog today.  I am creating for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  I recently purchased this Honey Bee paper second hand.  I thought it was so pretty, but who knew I would come up with this March holiday card with it!  I found this awesome sticker sheet in my March holiday stash.  I consulted my color swatches and found Stampin Up Wild Wasabi to be the best ink match.

Here is this week's sketch.

A close up of my cluster.  I created with sentiment strips and stickers. I added the circular sticker to white cardstock and die cut it.  Then popped it up with foam stickers.

It's so easy to coordinate with a paper stack.
