Hey All! Welcome to another addition of the Wednesday Evening Post with yours truly. I have a few projects to share with you this evening. So on to the first card. . .
I haven't made one of these in a long time. So, this idea came from my lack of ability to create an Easter card that I actually liked! I attempted no less than four (all sitting in my trash can) before thinking of this type of card. I had almost given up, but this came to my rescue:
How cute is that rabbit??? You'll hate me too, because I have no idea who makes the stamp. I bought this almost two years ago and put it in my binder before I found out that you were supposed to tell people who made your stamp! LOL Anyway, very little coloring was needed for him. I just did a little grey shadowing and added the pink to his ears and nose. Here is a little side view:
I love to create scenes, and Easter just lends itself to scenes. The eggs were created by first cutting them out with my oval nesties and then running them through various CB embossing folders. I then highlighted the embossed areas with MS glitter. The grass and fence was created with MS punches. I also used a CB die for the ribbon tag used for the sentiment. I attached it with the green gingham ribbon. Everything (including the grass panels) are attached to the base card with foam squares. The pale eggs in the background is just a sheet of paper that I used for a background for this photo. I made five of these to give to family members and my best friend and his partner. I'm going to attempt a dog themed one using the stamp that looks like Shotsy next.
My next project I wanted to share is just a simple one. Here it is:
I had made one of these for my blogging friend Chris for sending me the gift certificate. It is just a simple box to which I added some printed paper that looked like a row of tulips, and then punched out the fence to wrap around the box. The little plastic jars fit perfectly. I filled them with jelly bean eggs and then cut the same paper out for the top of the lid. Looks different in the picture because of the different light I had at the top of the box for lighting.
The next two are packaging for those little Millstone coffee packs and for packs of gourmet hot chocolate:
This is the same "memory box" that I have used for other projects that I've shown you. Here is yet another use:
The last card I want to share is this one:
The flowers were done with FlowerSoft. I love that stuff! The other thing I wanted to point out is that it is very hard to get a nice border around some of the Nestabilities dies labels editions. What I did with this one (and don't look too close 'cause I don't think I did a great job on this one!) is once I cut the nesties die cut out, I use double sided tape to tape it to the card stock that I'm going to use as the mat. I then carefully cut around it to get this mat.
OK, that's it for this post. Hope I made it worth your time. Thanks for sharing some moments with me. You know you have my heartfelt thanks.
I want to take this opportunity to wish you and all of your loved ones a very happy, warm, and blessed Easter Sunday. I hope your hearts are filled with the joy and meaning of this holiday, as well as all of the fun that the Easter Bunny can bring.
Love and hugs to all of you! Don't forget the PIC OF THE WEEK below!
