Super Cute Easter Lamb

Have you seen the adorable Easter Lamb single stamp on page 24 of the Occasions Catalog.  It is too cute.  Scroll down to find the measurements as well as the instructions for creating this Easter Lamb card.

Easter_lamb

Measurements:
Wisteria Wonder Card stock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2
Pink Pirouette Card stock 5 1/4 x 4
Thick Whisper White Card stock 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 for lamb, scrap for greeting
6" pieces of all ribbons plus two 1-1/2" pieces of the Silver ribbon to hang the greeting

Instructions:
TIP: If you plan to use the greeting separate from the lamb, I suggest cutting them apart before you mount the stamp and put the greeting on one of the flat sides on the wood block. If you don't separate them, you will need to use some scotch tape or a post-it note to mask the images.
1. Ink the lamb with the Basic Black ink and stamp it onto the large white layer, crop this with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch and trim 3/8" off the bottom with your scissors or your Stampin' Trimmer. Color the lamb with the Pink Pirouette stamp pad and a Blender Pen and then go over it with the While Chalk Marker to soften the look.
2. Run the Pink Pirouette layer through the Big Shot using the Polka Dot TEIF and then wrap a 6" piece of the Wisteria Wonder Seam binding around this layer securing it to the back.
3. Add the lamb piece with Stampin' Dimensionals and then wrap 6" pieces of the organza and skinny silver ribbons around the card over the lamb as shown and secure to the back.
4. Adhere this layer to the main card base.
5. Stamp Greeting on scrap of white and die cut it with the coordinating framelit.
6. Add 1-1/2" strips of Silver ribbon as shown using Glue Dots and cover the point where they meet with a large White Perfect Accent.
7. Add a few more White Perfect Accents where shown to finish the card.

SAB - Bunny Baskets with the Irresistibly Yours DSP

I needed a cute idea for some Easter treats and this is what I came up with.  Thanks to Becky Roberts for the idea. :-)

French_fry_bunny_baskets

I used the French Fry Box Bigz L Die and the Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper for the basket.  You earn this paper FREE during Sale-a-bration with a $50 order but hurry as Sale-a-bration ends next Tuesday, March 31st.

Here are some simple instructions to create the basket:
Cut two pieces of the Irresistibly Yours DSP to 5 x 5-1/2.
Lay both pieces over the large end of Fry Box Die and run them through the Big Shot Machine.
Add handles one at a time with the Extra Large Oval Punch.   
  Fry_box_bottom

Add a bit of Liquid Glue to the bottom of one of the pieces and attach them together.

 

 

 


Add Liquid Glue to the side flaps, adhere, fill with treats and give to your favorite someone.

M&M Easter Bunnies!

Saw these adorable punch art bunnies on Pinterest and had to make a few.  You can order the supplies to make these in my Online Store at www.shoppingwithbarb.com

MM-bunny_group

The following punches are used:

Punch a 1-3/4" hole in a 3x3" square of Whisper White, save this to use as the head.  Then slide the 2-1/2" Circle Punch in centering the smaller hole in the middle of the punch window and punch.  This creates the piece that will cover the front of the Treat Cup.  Punch a second 2-1/2" Circle to use for covering the back of the Treat Cup after you add your treats.

Treat Cups

116802s

Before covering up the back, place your solid 2-1/2" Circle on your Stampin' Trimmer with the Rotary Attachment and Perforating Blade.  Slide the perforating blade across the center creating an easy way for the recipient to reach the candy.  Add a 7/8" Scallop Circle punched from Whisper White for a tail.

MM_bunny_perforate

Tie a bow and add it to the front of the bunny for a pop of color, I used a couple of the ribbons off the Clearance Rack.

My first project uses the Single Stamp called Blessed Easter.  I cut the words away from the flower image to create two stamps as I want to use these beautiful tulips on more than just Easter Cards.  I stamped the tulips in Jet Black StazOn on Whisper White and used my Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Pistachio Pudding and Gumball Green markers to color the image.

Blessed_easter_blushing.glitter

I used a 2-Way Glue Pen to add some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the flowers.  I paper pierced around the oval adding a few sequins from our Gold Sequin Trim and separated the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper from the flowers with a strip of Blushing Bride punched with the Scallop Ribbon Border Punch.

Blessed_easter_blushing.glitter.close
Supplies:

Scalloped_tag_bunny_treat_group1

These cute little treat holders use the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch at the top and have a little "tray" inside to hold the truffle.  The bunny was created with three punches, the clouds with the Word Bubble Framelits and the grass with our Fringe Scissors.

Simple Spring Sampler Treats

Small images are perfect for creating fun treats and this set has the most adorable images to choose from.  I used the fun spring colored Sixlets that you can purchase in the stores now in the Easter Cancy aisle.  They are the perfect size to fit into our 1 x 8 Cello Bags.  I slipped one package of Sixlets in each bag and trimmed off the excess.  They now measure between four and five inches.  You can add two packages of Sixlets if you want a longer treat.

For more Easter ideas, click HERE.

Springsamplersixlets

I stamped the images on Whisper White card stock, punched them out with the 1" Circle Punch and then layered them on coordinating colors of card stock punched out with the 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Punch. They were attached to the bags by punching a 1/16" hole in the top of the tag and running Linen Thread around the Cello Bag and through the hole.

March 2013 Control Freaks Blog Tour - Spring & Easter Creations!

CFwelcome 

Welcome to the March 2013 Tour de Freaks Blog Hop! We are so excited to have you join us today.

This month we are showing off some of our Spring and Easter Creations.  Our tour is nice and short and features some of your favorite Control Freaks Stampers. You may have just come from the hilariously funny and talented Jan Tinklenberg's Blog, you may be one of my blog stalkers or you may have just stumbled here…however you got here, you’ll be very glad you did!  Be sure to take the whole tour!  If you are arriving here on the 19th, please note that not all links may be working yet.  The tour officially begins on the 20th.

I recently purchased the Spring Sampler set from the Spring Catalog.  I just love small images and I chose to use it on all my projects this month

First up is a teeny tiny chocolate treat!  Did you know that the Petal Card Punch can be used to create a tiny 1" square box?  It can!!

Springsamplepetalcardkisses1I was able to put two Hershey's Kisses in each box before wrapping it with our new 3/8" Striped Organdy Ribbon.  This ribbon comes in three colors, Marina Mist, Old Olive and Melon Mambo.  I paired the ribbon with Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue and Pretty in Pink boxes and think it looks great!

Springsamplepetalcardkisses

My second project is a set of cards using the Spring Sampler stamp set and the fun Peekaboo Frames Bigz L Die.  The circle die cut is the perfect size for these little images.  Stampin' Up!'s Note Cards & Envelopes are the perfect size for quick and easy notes.

Springsamplercfgroup

I used the Delightful Dozen Stamp Set, the Designer Series Paper Stacks (Brights, Subtles and the 2012-2014 In Color) along with Wild Wasabi 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain, Daffodil Delight Seam Binding and the Primorse Petals 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbons for my cards.  I also added the matching Designer Series Paper to the envelope flaps to complete the ensemble.
