Easter Flip Card 1

This is a flip card, one of two I made
for Easter this year. 
The second will be shared tomorrow.
It was easy to make using a die from Sizzix,
but you can make your own with some 
creative die cutting.
There are many tutorials online that show how.

The image is an oldie from DOTS.
It was water colored with inks from my ink pads
using an aquapainter brush.

The purple papers are from Lasting Impressions,
bought long ago. The yellow layer is
Barely Banana from Stampin' Up!

Thanks for looking =)

CAS Easter Card

Today I'm sharing one of the many Easter cards I made this year.
I'll be sharing one every day this week.

This particular card uses a small Easter Egg image that I colored 
with markers. The image is an oldie from Stampin' Up!,  Tag Time set.

I stamped several of these images, trying to get the perfect impression for another card I was making. I used one of the practice pieces on this card.

The embossing folder on the background is from Cuttlebug.

The gingham ribbon is unknown, it's quite old and the roll is not marked with a brand name.

Lovely Lilac, Pixie Pink and I believe Pool Party were the colors from SU! that I used.

Thanks for looking =)

EDITED TO ADD 4/12/2021:
This card was chosen as a CAS favorite as Splitcoaststampers

Flower Diorama Card

Happy Spring!

Here is a colorful, fun card to welcome the changing of the seasons!

It was a bit time consuming making this diorama card,
but fun and worth it.

Everything, other than the purple gingham ribbon,
came from Stampin' Up and are no longer available.

I used the Sending Flowers die 
to create the field of flowers.

Two colors of pink, purple, yellow
and green card stocks were used.

I flipped the dark green die cut flowers over
and glued them a bit higher than
 the lighter green so they wouldn't line up,
creating a fuller field of flowers.

The tiny die cut flowers were glued in place
over the green bits then I added clear rhinestones
that I had colored with a yellow Sharpie marker. 

The sky was made by lightly water coloring
around the Cloudy Day embossing folder

I added flower eyelets and gingham 
ribbon to the ends to dress it up.

The card folds flat for mailing.
It is 4 1/4" by 5 1/2".

Basic instructions:
Score in from each short end
at 1/2" and 1" for the fold lines.

I used a round circle die to cut the window
then cut the flowers out and 
glued them behind the window.

Adhere the front and back
at the ends with heavy duty adhesive. 

Thanks for looking =)

Happy St. Patrick's Day

 May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks,
May your heart be as light as a song,
May each day bring you bright, happy hours,
That stay with you all the year long.

I used the old Bold Basics brass template
from Stampin Up! and some lightweight,
white core paper (Die Cuts With A View)
to create this simple shamrock card.
The green paper was lightly sanded
to reveal some white and I hand doodled
lines around the edge of the plaid paper
with a black fine point Sharpie marker.
The white card base is textured.

Thanks for looking ;)

Lots of Happy Birthday Card 4

Final card with leftover bits from the 
Lots of Happy card kit refill I bought
last year from Stampin' Up!
I used some other stamps and items, too.

This will be the last post from me for a bit. 
I have a few Easter cards I'll be sharing when
it gets closer to the holiday. In the mean
time, I need to get back into working on
my many (but I think not enough) photo albums.

Edited 3/8/2021:
My card was chosen as a CAS Favorite
