5 minute Easter treat

I just picked up this new Sizzix die set called decorative frames last week and thought it would look great on this little diaper pouch. I used the bunny from Dandelion Designs to decorate the pouch.It was so quick and easy to make this and took me around 5 minutes. Although I did have the bunny lying on my craft table.
And if you have some time this Saturday the 26th, I'll be at Ben Franklin Crafts Market City doing a make & take from 10-11 am. We'll be using this same bunny but different project which is why I had it lying on my table.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you're having a great evening!!!

Paper blossoms punch

Here's a card I made using Leslie from the GF creeper set. I must of been in a purple mood because I usually grab for the pinks first. I wanted to sweeten her up a bit so I made a flower using the paper blossoms punches from McGill. This one is called azalea. You can find the punches at most of the craft stores on the island.
I also added this lace border punch from Martha Stewart. It reminds me of the days that I used to manufacture and sell toddlers and girls white eyelet dresses for spring to Liberty House.
Hope you're having a great Saturday even though the weather seems to be raining off and on. I am planning to work on my taxes and maybe take a break and craft. Thanks for stopping by today!!!

Here's a cute box I made yesterday with a stamp from "your next stamp". I used a Sizzix pro die called box with scalloped lid. For some reason as I was looking at these double sided papers from KI Memories, the gray and pink colors stood out so I went with these 2 colors.I took a photo of the box with the lid off so you can see it's quite roomy and can fit a bunch of goodies in it.
Thanks for stopping by today!!! Have a great evening!!!

Happy Easter carrot box

I've had this Sizzix die like forever and never got a chance to use it when it first came out over a year ago before Christmas, or maybe even longer. This die is called long triangle box and it's shape reminds me of a carrot so I decided to make it into a carrot box to hold Easter treats. I used Dandelion Designs new Easter cling stamp set for the rabbit.The green poof on the top of this box is tissue paper. I used Tim Holtz's tattered florals die to cut the green tissue flowers, squished it up and stuck a green brad in the middle to the box top.
Hope you're having a great evening! I'm getting dinner on the table so we can watch AI tonight.
Thanks for stopping by and check back as I have a couple more projects to share with you.

I recently bought this GF creepin set and while stamping some of the images, I ended up coloring this one called Harlow. It actually took me several days to finish it because after I colored her, I realized that I didn't have any matching dark colored cardstock. So I just used what I had.The card base is cut from a Spellbinders die called Grand Nestabilities Label 1. It's a perfect size for these stamps. Little bigger than the regular nestabilities.
I used glossy accents on her goggles to make it shine like glass. It's kind of hard to see in this photo. And the fence is a Tim Holtz edge die which I embossed with his woodgrain embossing folder and rubbed distress ink over it.
Sorry that my posts have been so spread apart but until I get better, I can only sit for a short period of time. Thanks for stopping by and keep checking back because I do have some other projects to post. Have a great day!!!
