Easter Greetings!

Hi Ai Fans!
It's time to start thinking about Easter again! This is "Anthonie"! I know he's supposed to be more of a male bunny but I wanted to show you that you could also make him into "Antoinette" LOL! You can really get either a male or female card from this image, depending on how you dress Anthonie.
In the Anthonie set you also get a basket and sentiment. I masked off my bunny image and made him look like he is carrying the basket of eggs! My paper is from on older Doodlebug collection called Sugar Shoppe. Always love the fun and bright patterns Doodlebug designs! I decided to paper piece Anthonie's outfit for a different look then just colouring it. A few enamel dots and Crystal Stickles on the Easter egg finished everything off.
Copics Used:
Bunny: C0, C1, C3
Basket: E40, E42, E43, E44
Eggs: RV04, RV06, RV09/ Y21, Y23/ BG11, BG13/ R20, R24

Happy Stamping!

CAS Card Set!

I finally got around to using this beautiful stamp set called "Shake a Tail Feather" from Local King Rubber Stamp Company that I got in the Fall from the Richmond Hill Scrapfest. If you know me at all you know that I LOVE Peacocks and even have a Peacock themed guest bathroom LOL. Of course as soon as I saw these I knew they were coming home with me!
The Stamp set also has a "Shake a Tail Feather" matching die set you can purchase which really made using these super easy!
I stamped these peacock in the Hero Arts Ombre Pool to Navy ink pad. I love how they turned out and will sure be purchasing more of the Ombre ink pads in the future. I also used embossing folders to create a nice texture to the white cardstock.

Embossing Folders Used:
Darcie: Large Petal 
Couture Creations: Petal Pleasures
Stamping Up: Elegant Bouquet
Bringing Crafts To You: Spots & Dots
For the sentiments I used words from the Little B Handwritten die set. First I cut them out of adhesive backed foam and then cut a second set from some paper with the Ombre ink applied. It makes for easy application of the foam when it already has adhesive on he back and I just glued the ombre die cuts on top of their matching foam ones.

Now I have a nice set of cards to give as gift. I was thinking of adding the envelopes and tying a big ribbon to keep them together as a set. I hope your having a great day and thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping

Busy Mama!

Good Morning!
Look at poor "Busy Mama" from High Hopes Stamps! She has her hands full with all her little bunnies! I'm sure there's a few more hiding behind her skirt that we can't see. 
Easter is around the corner and "Busy Mama" makes the perfect Easter Card! Of course the Doodlebug Easter Express 6x6 collection is perfect too, lots of fun patterns! I paper pieced her apron and pockets for a fun element!
From the side you can see that I popped up the image with some from squares for some extra dimension to my card.
I used the HH "Blessed Easter Script" sentiment.
Copics Used:
C1, C2, C3, W0. B0000
YG23, YG25, R01, R02

Happy Stamping!

Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Just popping in to share with you a card I made today to enter into the 2017 Spring Coffee Lovers Blogshop!

This stamp is from Reverse Confetti and is called "Just Brew It" and also has a matching die available. I decided on paper from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Fall collection. The stitched tag paper is from my stash. A few YNS Gumdrops and Doodlebug twine finish off my card!

Ok now I'm off to hop along with the Hop and see all the wonderful coffee themed projects!
Happy Stamping!
