Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge...Easter Inspired


Make My Monday Challenge 67...Easter Fun

This was an intricate card to make.
I started with a white linen card stock base card and
MFT Die-namics Flop-card Circle die which allows the center to have a half circle cut and embossing the line for the fold.
Next came the cutting of the patterned paper and purple card stock to apply on the card.
Using white linen card stock, patterned paper, pink cad stock, purple card stock, my BigKick, MFT Die-namics "Color Drop Stax" and "Inside & Out Stitched Circle Stax" to make ears, face, nose and circles for the front of the card to apply the verse.
Once I had all those pieces glued on I applied the mouth with a Prisma pencil and glued the googlie eyes on.
To finish I die cut the smile with purple card stock using
MFT Die-namics sending hugs and glued it to the front of the card.


oh, no Newton...

On this third week of guest designing I chose Prisma pencils to represent the colors of the challenge.
Cadium Orange = Pumpkin Pie
Light Aqua = Bermuda Bay
Mulberry = Rose Red
The base card is white linen card stock with images from Newton's Nook Designs "Newton's Birthday Flutter" stamped with StazOn jet black ink.

big flowers...

What fun this card was to make.
Hobby Lobby has been clearing out a lot of their paper crafting items.
I found this package of paper flowers by Paper Studios called "Poppies & Paperie".
In the package the flowers came with clear crystals for the centers but I dug through my stash to find my large black brads and used them for the center.
The base card is white linen card stock on which I stamped the "smile" from a Momenta set with StazOn jet black ink.
Then it was time to put the flowers together and arrange them on the card front with heavy duty double back tape.
Once they were set I trimmed the edges with scissors.

one third...

What a quick and easy card only needing to fill one third of the card.
The card is white linen card stock.
The verse from Paper Smooches "Spreading Sunshine" is stamped with StazOn jet black ink.
Paper tape was used to tape down the MFT "Sun Ray" stencil.
Once it was taped down I sponged Distress squeezed lemonade ink.
Then I finished it b stamping the smile from Paper Smooches "Healthy Vibes" with the StazOn.

little birds...

Things are difficult at the moment as my computer froze so I have to use hubby's!
The card is white linen card stock.
The birds and balloons are from Paper Smooches "Smoocheroos" and I stamped them with MFT Premuim insulation pink.
The no line coloring was done with Prisma pencils.
The grass was made by making a mask from a post it note that I die cut with Taylored Expressions "Grass Border Die", then sponged with Distress twisted citron ink.
