Hippity Hop

Howdy Y'all!

Are any of you having crazy weather like us: Winter one day, summer the next, and spring the 3rd day?  Yeah, can't figure out how to dress or whether I should carry a sweater with me.  I know, my life is exciting, huh? :)-

Well, you know what time it is, right?  Time for a new challenge at Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges!  The theme is Easter/Spring and you can create a card, layout, album, etc. 

Let's begin. :D
My first project is an Easter card with a heat embossed bunny.  I added a big bow and some rhinestones to finish it off.  I also lightly distressed the edges of the paper with Picked Raspberry.

I also made some Easter gift bags for some cute nieces. :) What's that you say?  Upside down eggs?  Yeah, so much for careful planning and cutting!  Just pretend the eggs are being tossed into the bag. ;)

[Supplies: cardstock; pattern paper- The Paper Studio; gift bag punch board- We R Memory Keepers; ribbon; rhinestones; stamp- Unity Stamp Co.; bow; embossing powder- Wow; distress ink- Tim Holtz; candy- optional :) ]

What comes to mind when you think of Easter or Spring?  Well, you know the drill: get crafty, have fun, & link up here.  :)  And thank you so, SO much for stopping by. 

Happy Crafting,

Pretty Poppy

Hola Folks,

How is your week going?  I hope those of you in the freezing cold are staying warm... And how is it that we are in MARCH already?! 

Well, I'm stopping by to let you know that the new challenge at Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges has begun. :)  The theme is:

You can create a layout, card, canvas, album, or an "off-the-page" project.
I created a card using a large poppy stamp by Unity Stamp Co.  I heat embossed the poppy on watercolor paper and then "painted" the flower with some distress ink.  I decided to paint "outside the lines" in order to see the complete flower.

I also used distress inks (Broken China & Peacock Feathers) to stamp my butterflies.  I used Broken China on one side and Peacock Feathers on the other.  And I finished off my card with some pearls.
(Supplies: cardstock; watercolor paper; poppy stamp- Unity Stamp Co.; butterfly stamp- Recollections; embossing powder; heat gun; distress inks- Ranger; pearls- Doodlebug; paint brush)
Ok, folks, you know the drill: get crafty, have fun, & link up here. ;)
And thank you for stopping by to visit me.  I greatly appreciate it. :D
Happy Crafting,
