Shoe Box Swap

I had scheduled this to post Friday while I was on my way to Champaign. IL for our annual Spring Into Stamping event hosted by the awesome Kim Peck! The event was on Saturday. We stayed with my daughter and she hosted a shoe box swap in the evening (A shoebox swap is where we each design a project and put all of the materials for everyone to make one in a box. Then we pass the boxes around so everyone can make your card. I thought I would share my card!

I must have missed a step in the process of setting this up to post at a point in time after I prepared it and when checking my blog found that it hadn't posted! Isn't technology wonderful?!?!?!?

Supplies used: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, Certainly Celery card stock; Tea Party Designer Series Paper; Basic Black Classic Ink; Eyelet Border Punch; Beautiful Wings Embosslit; Well Scripted stamp set

Hostess Club Project # 2

This project was inspired by fellow demonstrator Jackie Topa. It is made with the the Oval Scalloped Bigz Die. The egg is the oval and the scallops were cut apart to decorate the egg. The center card was paper pieced onto a 3" x 6" piece of white card stock, then run die cut again to just the get egg. I know you can't see it, but there is Dazzling Diamonds on the eggs as well. The bottom half of the Whisper White card stock was done with thePerfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder.

This is one of the projects we are making tonight. We are using the Kaleidescope Designer Series Paper, Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon and Sherbet Buttons for the flower. The card base is Tempting Turquoise. The flower is layered on Certainly Celery and an eyelet border of Pixie Pink. The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Brenda's Bunny

One of the new demonstrators in my downline, Brenda, stopped over the other day and showed me this card she made. It is gorgeous! I just had to take a photo of it and share it with you!

She embossed the bunny with clear embossing powder on Chocolate Chip card stock and added some of the rhinestones from the Easter Egg Kit as a collar. The eggs were punched out of the Tea Party designer series paper with the large oval punch and embellished with a little glitter (after all, she is a Sparkler!!)
