~ Shabby Dresser ~

Last month at my weSTAMP demonstrator meeting, I won the door that means, that I needed to make a door prize for this month's meeting and the little dresser is what I thought to create!

This little project was inspired by another demonstrator meeting that I attend monthly. Jane Rappleyea made these as a swap. Can you imagine that? So I had a lovely sample from which to create mine.

It uses the SU matchbox die and top note die and curly label punch. The flowers were made using the SU Springtime Vintage fabric from the Occasions Mini catalog. Rose red cardstock, Springtime Vintage dsp along with some Rhinestone brads and Basic Rhinestone stick ons.

Hope that you enjoy what I have shared and somehow inspired you in your creative pursuits!

Happy Stamping!

~ Put on Your Easter Bonnet... ~

...with all the frills upon it... Does anyone remember that song? I know...I am probably dating myself, but it brings back such fond memories of when I was a little girl and my parents would take my little sister and I and go shopping for our Easter outfits! I just LOVED dressing up for Easter with my new coat, dress, shoes, purse and of course a bonnet!

They are made using the large scallop die, the 2 1/2" circle punch and the large scallop punch...along with some pretty SU satin can do them up to your hearts desire!

My dear stamping friend Marjori Miller showed me a picture of these and you know what happens when your heart skips a beat over a paper project...I just HAD to make them...and then it dawned on me that maybe I could make enough for my weSTAMP swap...HA! Marjori to the rescue...just LOVE that girl!
She graciously gave me over a dozen of the little empty SU plastic containers that some of our lovely embellishments come in...and...there you have it! I believe that credit is due to Diana Gibbs for this oh so cute idea...thanks Diana!

Enjoy and go make some Easter bonnets!

~ Scallop Mini Basket ~

Isn't this just a darling little Easter basket? I was so inspired by Brenda Quintana's that I had to have one of my very own! I used the SU blushing bride cs and 1/2" ribbon for the handle. Notice the little butterflies gently sitting on top made with the lovely SU sizzlet die Beautiful of my favorite dies!

~ Use Those Scraps! ~

This is a pretty straightforward, simple card...demonstrating that you can use up your scraps and still create a very cute card!

So...get them out...cut them up and stamp a sentiment!

~ Envie Easter Basket ~

Good Morning Happy Stampers!

We made this little envelope basket at in class this month. It is an envelope with the two corners punched with the tag punch and decorated in some Greenhouse Gala dsp. I managed to sneak in some of the oh so cute pom pom trim which can be found in the Occasions Mini catalog!

~ Happy Easter! ~

This was our Make n Take for the Dazzling Divas meeting this month. I just LOVE this stamp set! This card was again inspired by Becky Roberts.

The basket is a scaled down version of the Baskets and Blooms Bigz die which can be found on page 209 of the SU 2010-2011 IBC. The little chic is made with the SU A Good Egg set which can be found on page 48 item # 114974 in the main IBC.

Lately, I really have been having fun using bright colors and on this card I used SU pear pizazz, daffodil delight and poppy parade! The little chic had to have some bling for her eyes and the lovely SU Jewels Basic Rhinestones were used for that...along with some daffodil delight wide ribbon cut in half and frayed a little for the bow!

And...there you have it!

You can join me and a terrific group of happy rubber stampers and paper crafters at my monthly Class which is held in my home next week...Saturday March 19th...10-12 noon. Email me for the deets...

Happy Stamping!
