Easter Bunny Card

Here’s an early Easter card we did at my Girl’s Day/Night Out class this month. I saw Laura’s card HERE and knew I wanted to CASE parts of it! That is how this card evolved. I added an actual punched hole (1 3/4″ circle punch) to the card front, and then added the bunny face on the INSIDE of the card!

Recipe:

  • Stamp Set: Delightful Dozen, Woodgrain Background
  • Paper: Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Twitterpated DSP
  • Ink: Soft Suede, Blushing Bride
  • Accessories: Punches: Small and Medium Oval (feet and ears), 1 3/4″ Circle (hole and bunny body), Bo-Ho Blossom (bunny tail), Cupcake (small circles for bunny eyes), 3/4″ Circle (cheeks and small part of circle for bunny nose), Ornament (face), Dimensionals (happy easter sign), linen thread

Notes: Use sponge daubers to ink around all punched edges. Fold edges of tail forward to give it a 3-D look. Draw small ovals with Blushing Bride marker on bunny paws.

Turkey Treat or Name Place Card

I totally CASED Erin Gonzalez on this one! You can view her creation HERE. You could also do this as a name place card for Thanksgiving. (This is a great way to use up Halloween candy!! LOL) Recipe:Stamp Set: Teeny Tiny WishesPaper: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Whisper WhiteInk: Early EspressoAccessories: Owl Punch, 5 Petal Flower Punch, Two Tags Die, 1 1/2 Early Espresso Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Twine

Mitten Card

Here is a card we made at my Girl’s Day/Night Out class last week. It was a simple card to make and thought it would be fun to get the holidays rolling! 🙂 (Even though it’s still 90+ degrees in AZ!)
I was inspired by “ctorina” on SCS and her card can be found HERE.Recipe:Stamp Set: Snow SwirledPaper: Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, Crumb CakeInk: Baja BreezeAccessories: Snowflake Punch, Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Linen Thread, Button, Dazzling Details Glitter

Denim Card

Here’s one of the cards we made at my Girl’s Day/Night Out class this month. It is quite simple to make faux denim! All you do is take Bashful Blue cardstock and run your Night of Navy ink pad across the cardstock! First run it horizontally, and then vertically. Voila!!!

This would also make a nice masculine card, just omit the stamped pocket. The pocket is big enough to fit a gift card or cash.

The pocket dimensions are about 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.

Recipe:

Stamp Set: Best Friends Forever, Tiny Tags

Paper: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Real Red

Ink: Night of Navy, Craft White

Accessories: Silver Brads, Mat Pack, Paper Piercing Tool, White Embossing Powder, Gold Pen (non SU)

Wedding Cake Card

This is one of my Girl’s Day/Night Out cards from this month. This card is much prettier in real life! The camera just doesn’t capture the details on the “frosting” part of the cake!

One of my downline (Linda Rodenberg) did a version of this card HERE. She used beautiful RICH colors! It’s amazing the different looks you can get with the same card, just changing the colors!

I LOVED the made by Linda Aarhus HERE. I changed the colors and here is!

The “O” in the word do has a rhinestone in it, which is hard to see here.


Recipe:

Stamp Set: Word Play (30% off until the end of the month!! Only $20.27 for the clear mount! You can go to my SU website and order HERE.)

Paper: Very Vanilla

Ink: Basic Black

Accessories: Elegent Linda Embossing Folder, Basic Rhinestone, Basic Pearls, Paper Crimper, Bo Ho Blossoms Punch, Dimensionals

The dimensions for the cake are:

Bottom Layer: 2 3/4″ x 1 1/2″

Middle Layer: 2 1/4″ x 1 1/2″

Top Layer: 1 3/4″ x 1 1/2″

Crimped strip is 1/4″ wide.

I “built” the cake on a 4″ x 1 1/4″ piece of scrap cardstock. That way it is easier to put dimensionals behind the cake piece and attach it to the front of the card.

Graduation Card

Here’s a gradution card we made at my Girl’s Day/Night Out class last month. I was totally inspired by Helen’s card on her blog HERE. You can substitute your school colors to make it even more personal!

Stamp Set: En Francais, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, More Mustard, Crumb Cake, Basic Gray
Ink: Crumb Cake, Basic Black
Accessories: Owl Punch, 5/8″ Basic Black Satin Ribbon, 1/8″ Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Dimensionals, Dauber

Extra Instructions:
The diploma is made with computer paper (easier to roll).
Use dauber to ink edges of owl in basic black.
Wings are made with the scallop oval, just trip some off the top and place the whole thing behind the owl.
Dimensionals are behind the En Francais and black squares to make it pop.

Strawberry Card CASE

LOVED the card made by Julie so I CASED it 100% You can find her original HERE. The LAST thing I did was the sentiment on the front…I need to learn to START with the sentiment or get out my stamp a ma jig so my sentiments don’t go downhill like this one. ARGH!!!

Paper: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Real Red, Garden Green, So Saffron
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Heart Embosslit, Bo-Ho Blossoms Punch, Little Leaves Sizzlet, 5-Star Flower Punch, Polka Dot Ribbon, Polka Dot Embossing Folder, 1/4″ Hole Punch

Happy Easter Treat!

I had to hurry and post this CASE before Easter is here! There’s a lot of these little bunny/carrot treats all over blogs. The first one I saw was found HERE. Theresa Vargas is the creator, but I couldn’t find a personal blog for her.

I also made a “cheat sheet” to help with the punches that were used to create this bunny treat.

Easter Card

LOVED Brenda Keenan’s card HERE, so this I CASED it! I used the brayering technique for the sky and sponged the grass at the very bottom.

Chocolate Candy Bar Treat

This is one of the projects we made for Girl’s Day/Night Out this month. I CASED Connie Stewart’s project HERE. However, I made my candy bar holder using ONE candy bar (Connie’s has two). I also shortened the “Rules of Chocolate” so it would fit on one side of the candy bar. Instructions below:

JOY card

This was another card we made at my Girl’s Day/Night Out this month. I was inspired by Tiffany Bauer’s card, which you can view HERE. She has some wonderful ideas on her blog and is super creative!! The JOY was stamped first, then masked, and then the wreath was stamped ontop of the JOY.

Peaceful Season Card

I attended the Stampin’ Up Convention this summer, and this stamp set was a FREE GIFT to us! I just LOVE this set!
I was in a “Control Freaks” swap this fall, and I got a very similar one from (once again) Connie Babbert! You can see her original card HERE. I use the Top Note die a lot, and I love how she used the diagonal effect for this card! The poinsettia was made with the 5 petal flower punch. I used a bone folder to curl back the edges of the petals.
