Morning all! I just wanted to share a few Easter cards I have done today and a birthday card. I also realize I have a couple og Blog awards to attend to ~ I have not forgot about them! Im just going through all of the blogs I follow and its taking much longer than I expected (I have to gather 45 more blog addresses & names!!! to finish accepting). So please bear with me! Thanks! On to the cards . I did these quickly this morning. Two cards were made with the new Martha Stewart punches I picked up a couple weeks ago (listed under TJ Maxx Deals) The Bunny ear one came out as my favorite. I just found a bunch of Springy- Easter type patterns and punched and glued them on to a light grey diamond print paper and layered that on a lavender cardstock - I used Microsoft Publisher to create the sentiment and then punched sideways with the EK ticket punch (boy, that punch has sure got its moneys worth!! I use it soo much!). The second punch card , also used Easter 2010 cart, MS Egg & Basket punch and Storybook for the scallop ovals. I cut the litte blades of grass by hand & added some bling for the Bunny's collar, plus a little ribbon at bottom. The third Easter card, I am not sure i love it too much, but I used Holiday Cakes for the bunny and EK Real Estate punch for the stamped (studio G -2009 series) sentiment, plus the i-rock for the gold bling. The last card, a birthday card is an older Studio G cupcake stamp. I had it in my "extra cut" box and saw it today & was inspired to make something out of it. I layered it and used some Copics on it and the purple layer used an MS PAtP to make the pretty border.
Thanks for taking a look & I am hoping to finalize my blog awards this evening!
