How the heck are ya??? HAPPY SPRING! We are having the most bizarre weather here (but typical for Indiana). Today it got to 73 but in the morning we are supposed to be in the 20s! Is that nuts or what???
Today's post is reflecting the new Spring season. How do you like those cute flowers that popped up in my yard up there??? LOL God love 'em. They do anything to please me (but they are paid well in treats, I assure you). On with the post!
When I saw this stamp set, this card was in my head. It really went together quickly. I drew the clouds freehand on "sticky paper" then cut them out. I peeled off the backing and sprinkled them with diamond glitter. Can't see it in the pic that well, but they are sparkly. What you also can't see is the yellow in the balloon is also very sparkly. I used a glitter gel pen to color those areas. After some very fussy cutting, I popped up the balloon and clouds with foam squares. The green hills I cut out freehand as well, and the sky was sponged with distress ink (faded jeans). Sentiment is from the same stamp set from Inkadinkado.
Next is my second Easter card. Here it is:
It's kind of goofy, but I made this for Jay's great nephew's (young kids). It is all made with punches. I actually
stole cased this idea from something I saw on SCS. You can see what I cased HERE. However, I did make tons of changes. Changed the scene completely adding flowers and a fence, etc. Bet you will NEVER guess what I made their little feet out of. . .a MS Halloween bat punch! LOL Their little feet are part of the bat's wing. That's what I call "winging it"! (GROAN) Literally, everything on this card is punched.
Last thing to share with you tonight is this 3-D project for Easter:
This is a box I found while surfing You Tube. I love the idea of this and when I saw it I knew it would be great for Easter or Halloween. Since I didn't see it for Halloween, Easter it is. . .Are you ready for the inside????
I just love this box, and it is a piece of cake to make. If you are interested, you'll find the video tutorial HERE. I stamped the outside of the box with a $1 stamp I found at Mike's. Love the rabbit silhouette (stamped in four different pastel colors). I don't know who the paper is by that I used on the inside. I'm going to put a little Easter grass in each box to enhance the presentation, but I didn't have any for tonight's pics.
HERE IS THE PIC OF THE WEEK:
I took this picture this afternoon. This was the largest, brightest rainbow I had ever seen. It had not even rained in our neighborhood, but you can see that it is raining behind the rainbow. If you look really close to the left above the white house, you can see a second faint rainbow. I was standing in my driveway when I took this today. We even had tornado warnings this evening. I have a feeling we are in for some rough weather this Spring.
OK, that wraps it up for another Wednesday Evening Post. Welcome to all of my new subscribers. I love that you think enough of my blog to subscribe. I'm honored. For the rest of you wonderful, fabulous, amazingly talented, super sweet, regulars of mine, I'm behind on my blog visiting (as usual). I'm trying to stay ahead of all the things that need to be done around the house and with the care of Jay and the boys. I feel like I've neglected some things so I've tried to get started on some Spring cleaning etc. But I will be by in the next few days. I've missed you and can't wait to see what you've been up to!
