One of the best ways I have of coming up with a new idea is to find a “Challenge” and pull out my new stamps & embellishments.This sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches and I’ve used the gorgeous Painted Blooms DSP, Indescribable Gift Stamp Set, Butterflies Thinlits Die, and Artisan Embellishment Kit.
See it here!

Isn’t that flower stamp gorgeous?!
Have a fun weekend and be sure & do some stampin’!

We did have to cut out bunny, but that wasn’t so bad. She’s popped up using a dimensional.
One more project:
Found these cute little buckets on Pick Your Plum, & I couldn’t resist! Perfect for holding all your essentials for your craft table! And, after months of protesting, I pulled out my Sizzlits S Pinwheel Die & found it simple to put together!
Now for this week’s assignment: MAKE SOMETHING!
And, don’t forget, tomorrow Stampin’ Up! puts up the Clearance Rack List and offers FREE SHIPPING APRIL 21-25! Shop early as supplies will disappear quickly!
When I saw this fluffy Peep, I knew just who had to have it!! Anne & I bonded over peeps on a very memorable Girl Scout camp out years ago. She packed up her leftover Peeps from Easter (be prepared, you know!) and we ended up roasting them & eating them with S’mores! I was the only one brave enough to bite, as I remember.

I’m having a Stamp-a-Stack class this Tuesday, March 25th at 2pm at my house in Haiku and I’d love for you to join me!
This is what I have so far… I’m trying to decide on a 5th card, because there are just so many cute ideas out there!!
Tuesday, March 25th
2pm – 4:30pm
Cost: $12 or FREE with your $25 order placed that day
We’ll make 5 cards with envelopes to match. (Originally 4 cards, but make 5 if you have the time!)
RSVP today or Monday morning, so that I have time to prep
If you’d like to attend my Stamp-a-Stack classes, but aren’t available during the times I have them, please let me know when you’d like to have them & I’ll try to accommodate you. If you’re coming to class, feel free to suggest the type of card you’d like! I’m thinking I need a “manly” card or kid’s birthday. What do you think?
I’ve had several requests for directions to make my Bunny Card…so here they are:
Card Base is Crumb Cake, textured with Wood Grain (#127821). Punch the Bunny Hole using the 1 3/4″ circle punch. Using Gumball Green, I cut my grass using the Tasteful Trim Bigz Die and my leaves with the Sizzlits Little Leaves (#114511).
Bunny (Pool Party) uses the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, 1 3/4 X 7/8 Oval Punch and 3/4 X 15/16 Oval Punch, 7/8 Scallop Punch. Tips: Put your dimensional for the tail on the Bunny Butt first, then stick on the tail. That way it won’t show on the other side. Also, sponging with the Sponge Dabbers (#102892) adds a lot! The eggs are punched using the same Oval Punch as the feet. I slipped them under the grass, then added a small dot of Tombo when I was happy with the placement. I use very small amounts of glue! I really don’t like when the glue gets all over! But, just in case, I always have my handy dandy Adhesive Remover (#103684) available!
Here’s the inside:
Stamp Set is Eggstra Spectacular (#133072) from the Mini Catalog.
I used the lamb on the envelope. That’s the Blossom Punch behind the 2 X 1 3/8 Oval Punch.
Hope you have fun making this card. Whoever receives it will love it!
