Hey peeps! A super quick card for you today, for three challenges:
I popped into my local craft store and scored some cute stamps yesterday, and this umbrella and sentiment were in a baby set! I thought it would be perfect for the Card Concept challenge; my style for this one is clean and simple!
I love the mix of vintage and whimsical…and since I didn’t have any Crushed Curry designer paper, I substituted Daffodil Delight! Everyone needs some sunshine, right?!

Hey, peeps! I am still slugging along, making Easter crafts….I am sure I am probably the last one out there! Today’s are two more little treat holders:
The Kraft Journal’s challenge this week is for bunnies or lambs, so I did one of each! The first one is a bag-a-lope; these were real popular when I first became a demonstrator, and I think you can find the directions on SCS. I used a crumb cake envelope, scoring the sides and bottom at 5/8” to make my little bag:
I used some Retrofresh DP, Lil’Inker dies and a Papertrey sentiment.
The next one uses the Scallop Tag Topper punch, and is basically like the one shown here, but I embossed the front panel with the Square Lattice EF before assembling it. I sponged it with Baked Brown Sugar ink, then added these cute little images from a retired Cornish Heritage Farmnspring set:
Here’s the back, with a tag from the same set.
This little cutie uses the colors from the Colour Me…! challenge this week (I hope that Crumb Cake is considered a neutral!!!):
I think I am done with treats for now! If you have any questions on my supplies, shoot me an email….if I don’t get off the computer, DH is going to be grumpy, LOL!

That rake is almost as big as she is!!! Enjoy your day!

Happy Wednesday, peeps! I wanted to share with you the projects we made at my last stamp camp! Most of these were CASEd from other talented, creative stampers!!!! I’ll share my sources with you, since they have wonderful tutorials!
The first one is a Cadbury Egg “throne”, shared by Connie Stewart:
This is a little box of Rolo caramel candies created by Penguinstamper:
I did make the scalloped piece on this a little bit longer than her measurement, just so there would be room for the big egg punchouts (extra large oval punch).
This one was my own design, but I probably saw something like it on Pinterest or on someone’s blog; it is filled with jelly beans!
And finally, these little M&M treat holders are all over blogland, I saw mine here:
And I got some pretty Easter cards in the mail so far this year, too:
And from Martha:
I have to tell you, Cassidy thought these were WONDERFUL! Enjoy your day!
More “heavy hauling”….this time she is towing the Barbie-cycle, along with her ball and two carpet mats!!!
I promise, these are the last ones, LOL!

It’s Monday, peeps! Time for another Merry Monday challenge! Karen has a unique color combo for us today:
I would normally not put these colors together, but I LOVED it once I started playing around, and honestly, this card came together in five minutes! Of course, there’s no stamping on the front, so there wasn’t much to mess up!!!
I perused my humongous stash of Christmas papers and came up with this little bingo card from Simple Stories’ Handmade Holiday pad. I mounted it on a piece of Whisper White which had been embossed with a Darice EF and finally, I mounted it on a Smoky Slate card base. I added a glimmer snowflake and some pretty silver ribbon for the final touches:
The design team did a wonderful job with these colors….I hope you’ll stop by the Merry Monday blog to see them all!
Cassidy told Grampy she needed some tools to go rescue her babies with the Barbie car (which I know is not a car, more like a 4-wheeler!!!):
The she decided a basket in the front would be better:
Stay tuned for more later!

I was sort of whining to myself lately because I was seeing all these cool stencilled designs, some with stencilling paste, and I was thinking “Poor me” because I didn’t have any stencils….then a light bulb went on in my head and I remembered that I DO have some stencils! I had the wonderful Build a Banner Simply Created set from last year’s Holiday mini, so I pulled it out and went to work:
I used the chevron and dotted stencils with the Calypso Coral ink, then stencilled the “h” in Artichoke and cut it out.
I then realized that any Framelit can also be used as a stencil!!! Just leave the diecut IN the Framelit….don’t pop it out quite yet…..then use a dauber to color in the center. Pop it out and you have a cool stencilled element! Just be sure to clean off the Framelit between colors!
I hope you find this color combo fun to use too, and be sure to share what you do with it at the Paper Players blog! And check out the others’ samples as well!
We did a wee bit of chalk drawing on the sidewalks this week! (And don’t mind the outfit…she insists on wearing this hoodie which is waaaay too small for her, LOL!) She wanted me to draw five people (I just do stick figures), all holding hands. Then she added her own at the very end:
It’s a man holding the baby’s hand, and he has a MOUSTACHE, LOL!:
Enjoy your day!
