Bunny Treat Card

Hello fellow bloggers. Happy Wednesday!:)lol. I have another Spring/Easter inspired treat to share with you all today. I call it a "Treat Card" because its like a small card with a a treat inside. I used My Creative Time's Card Sentiments 3x3 Trifold Card Die to make my card. Im so proud of myself because all the paper I used came from scraps, yay!

The bunny is from the Emma's (My Creative Time) "To my Best Peep"stamp and die set The Easter eggs are from "Hello Chickie!" The grass was cut out using  the "Stitched grass die." The sentiment came from the "To my best Peep" stamp set.

The tiny bunny inside the card is from "All Around Holiday" stamp and die set, and the sentiment is from the  "Color me Happy" stamp set. All the stamps and dies I used today are from Emma's My Creative Time Store. Her line of products are fabulous! Truly a must have:)

Easter Treat Tubs

Hello fellow bloggers:) I have another Easter project to share with you all today.

I used the color key from Color Throwdown as my color inspiration for my cute bunnies.

The bunnies are from Peachy Keen's March 2013 monthly stamp club kit. I colored them with my Spectrum Nior markers.

I've been saving these tubes for awhile now. I knew that they could be recycled into something awesome in the future, and boy was I right:)lol.

I used a lot of My Creative Time's dies and stamp sets on my project. If you don't have any of Emma's products you must get your hands on some. They are absolutely fabulous and high quality just like Peachy Keen's are:)

3-D Easter Egg and First cut with the Silhouette

Hello fellow bloggers! I know its been awhile, I apologize for that. Hope everyone is been doing good and staying crafty. I have a 3-D Easter Egg to share with you all today. I am so excited because this was my first time making a 3-D paper project, and the first time I used my Silhouette machine. I think that for being my first time using the silhouette I did pretty good:)

I bought the egg shaped container file form a great company called SVG Cuts. The egg shaped container came in the SVG Cuts Popular Street Tulips kit. One of the reasons why I wanted a silhouette machine is to be able to cut SVG's, and well I jumped right at it with this project.

I got my Peachy Keen stamps out and got to work. Stamped, colored with Nior markers, and cut by hand. Added some Stickels to add some sparkle to the adorable bunny. This bunny is from the March 2013 stamp club of the month kit.

I used some decorative gems to polish up the paper, and hit the edges of the paper with some walnut color distress ink. I then took some sheer ribbon in pink and purple and wrapped it around the egg.

I added some light purple Easter basket grass inside and then topped it off with candy. Super cute and easy to make:)
