Stampin Up card exchange

I made this Easter card for my S.U. club's card exchange this weekend. You know I love Spellbinder's dies and for this card I used 2 dies from their limited edition Easter line: Easter Borderabilities petite S4-237 & Nested Eggs S4-264.
The card is just yellow cardstock that I cut to 6", and folded in half (a 12 x 12 sheet cut in half & folded), the paper & ribbon are from H.L., I also bought the silver Stickles there (it's on the egg).
So, once I had all my pieces cut out I chalked everything---with my fav. "chestnut roan." :) I started by adding the border to the bottom of the card, ribbon next (you HAVE to use ribbon glue...I tried to use my tape runner, and it fell off. Stayed on when I glued it back on with my ribbon glue though). Next I glued my big egg to the card, added the smaller egg to the card using pop-up dots. Finishing touches were stickles to the eggs, and adding my "little chick" to the egg with a pop-up dot. Do you realize where it came from? Look at the center of the border....when you cut out the border, the chick and the side chicks are your leftovers. :) Never throw away the "leftovers," sometimes they come in handy.

Easter Pail & Tag

I thought it would be cute to make Easter Baskets; but use metal pails instead of the traditional baskets. So, I bought these pails at Hobby Lobby, and added lace and ribbon to them. The printed paper is from H.L., and so is the "grass." The egg tag is Spellbinder's die: S4-264 Nested Eggs & the chick is S4-263 Easter Fun. I added Stikles to the egg, and colored the chick using water color pencils, with liquid glass added to the feet, beak and eye.

I love the way this card turned out! We used Spellbinder's Impressabilities I2-1008 Tulips, and S4-209 Tulip Pendant. For the background, we used Core`dinations paper in purple, and embossed it using the Impressability. Then we sanded it, to really make the tulips stand out. We adhered that to our card front, and cut the card to make it the same size as our impressability; on the side however, we just cut the front of the card, we left the inside the original size and added our coordinating ribbon to the inside edge. Next we cut out our pendant, threaded ribbon through it and attached it to the card. For the pendant center we used the Core`dinations paper once again, sanded it, then added pearls to our card.

We made cards in pastel purple, yellow and blue.

For the 6 x 6 mini album page we used the "Twitterpated" paper collection from Imaginisce. So cute!!! What is awesome about this paper line is the pages are double sided. So you have several combinations that you could use. So for the main page, take a 12 x 12 paper cut into 4- 6 x 6 squares. 1st accent paper is cut to 2 x 6, and glued to page; 2nd accent page is cut to 1 x 6 and glued to bottom of page. We added lace and ribbon next to our page, then used the smallest S4-180 Nested Bird die from Spellbinders, to finish it off.

This picture is of Caden & Deianeira last Easter. So sweet :)

St. Patrick's Day card

This card features Spellbinder's die: S4-136 Classic Heart (that I used to make the Shamrock's with, using core`dinations paper, so the hearts could be sanded for a distressed look). Thanks for the idea Sis!!! :) For this card I used the only St. Patrick's Day print paper I could find...who knew it would be so hard!? Ribbon, rhinestones,and eyelets are used as embellishments.

6 x 6 mini St. Patrick's page

Once again using my only St. Patty's paper, i cut a 12" x 12" green cardstock into 4 6" x 6" squares; same with the print paper (it's just cut in half to make the triangle). Ric-rac & rhinestones were again used as the embellishments, and the Spellbinder's die is: S4-162 Labels 2. This picture is of my daughter again when she was about 4 months old. :)
