Stampin' Up! Ears to You!

Happy Easter Everyone!
He is Risen!  We got up way early this morning (5am) because Sage wanted to go to our church's sunrise service, and that we did.  But before we left, she went outside in her jammies and a flashlight to look for the eggs the Easter Bunny brought her!  It was quite funny and cute.

Just wanted to share this great card from my friend, Natalie Bauman.  She's in one of my clubs and I've just starting giving out challenges.  The challenge for this one was mojomonday #281.

 I love how she spotlighted each of the bunnies from #132659 Ears to You.  She also used some of my favorite in colors that will be returning at the end of May.  #122924 Pool Party Cardstock as the base, #122974 Island Indigo ruffled ribbon, #122922 Wisteria Wonder Cardstock, #122923 Island Indigo Ink, #119976 Square Lattice folder, #118138 Beautiful Wings Embosslits.  And the polka dot paper is on our clearance rack as the Sweet Shoppe Speciality paper, the polka dots are embossed.  Way cute!!!

I hope you and your family have a blessed Easter!  He is risen indeed!

Stampin' Up! Punch Art

This is one of the 4 cards we did this weekend at my Let's Get Punchy Class.  I was inspired by Jackie Topa on this one.

I never thought I would need that Blossoms Petal Builder Punch #121808, but it worked great for this guy!
We also used the Boho Blossoms punch #119858 and the small flower punch from the Itty Bitty Shape Punch Pack #118309.  The flower pot was created with the Petal Cone Bigz L Big Shot die.  And of course he's sorry he's gotten into your flower pot with Teeny Tiny Wishes (w) #115370.

Spring we are looking for you!

I used the new Honeycomb Embossing folder #129378 and the Core'dinations Cardstock.    And the "clasp" of the purse is Designer Builder Brads #129329.  Other supplies used:

Stampin' Up! Perfect Punches

 If you were lucky enough to come to some of my workshops this past month, we made these adorable gift card purses.

 We made this one with a 6x6 piece of #127540 Sycamore Street DSP from Sale-a-Bration.  It doesn't fit in a regular envelope so we modified it in the last workshop to make it fit with a cut of 6 x 5 1/2".  The key to cutting the angle, is make sure once you fold the paper in half, that the opening is facing you.  And put the top corner on the 0 (or cutting track) and using the ruler to the right put the bottom corner on the 1/2".

You could even use the bottom half of this to write a message.  Isn't it cute??  Or how about making birthday invitations with it??  Way cute!

Supplies used:
#113463 Top Note
#120516 Perfect Punches clear
#119859 extra large oval punch
#130812 Sycamore Street Ribbon
#122923 Island Indigo Cardstock (retiring at end of May!)
#126986 Island Indigo Ink (retiring at end of May!)
#122924 Pool Party Cardstock (retiring at end of May!)
#111349 Tangerine Tango Cardstock
#119247 basic pearls
#129406 Bitty Butterfly Punch

Now go make your own and have some fun!
