Easter Gift Voucher Holders

Lots of Easter challenges this week: ClearItOut, Cuttin&Stampin, ScrapCreations.

I made some Easter themed gift voucher holders using the 2 Tags Die.

You need to cut out 2 tags and then make a "sleeve" to hold the voucher inside. I also used some twine so I can attach them to my sons' Easter Eggs!

Pastel Easter Eggs

SU Wacky Wishes, SU Spring Sampler

Using this week's UnscriptedSketch. AddictedtoCAS is looking for Spring.

2Sisters, CraftyCalendar and CraftsForEternity want Easter.

For the background, I stamped the sentiment (from Wacky Wishes) in Versamark, then dusted Mica powders over it. It gives a very subtle background effect with a slight shimmer.

Spring flowers on a snowy day ...

STAMPIN UP summer silhouettes

Using SeizeTheBirthday sketch and colours from 10 minute craft dash.

AddictedtoCAS is looking for Spring.

Quick, CAS stamping and matting. Job done!

And a smattering of glitter; one can never have too much. (Well I cant!)

I love the spring colour way - shame there's nearly a foot of snow outside and all my snowdrops, primulas & narcissi are now buried ... When will they see the light of day?

Easter Cone

 

2Sisters, CraftyCalendar and CraftsForEternity want Easter.

Finally after numerous attemps - a slightly skewed photo!

I realised it was incredibly difficult to hold/prop up the basket whilst simultaneously focussing and taking a photo!!

Anyhow, the Petal Cone die works well with sheets of acetate as well as paper and card. Hopefully you can see the mini chocolate eggs hiding; I tried not to eat them all ...

The Every Egg wheel is great value; you can use the whole strip or cut out the various little images.

One Layer Flowers

SU Summer Silhouettes, SU Pretty Petites

I have to thank Susan for inciting me to just go for it and quit deliberating (something I do FAR too much when crafting). I knocked this card up in under 5 minutes!

 

Unfortunately Spring has still not "sprung" in Derbyshire; it's snowing AGAIN!

Hey Dude

Using this week's RetroSketch, the RibbonGirl's call for green & white and MakeMyMonday's call for monochrome.

Let'sCraft&Create wants to see something for the boys and another Beatles song "Hey Jude" for CASology.

The "dude" does have a slight "out of this world" sheen to his body thanks to my Mica powders!

I thought it was about time I made a teenage masculine card for a change - thanks for the incentive Let'sCraft&Create girls!

They say it's your Birthday ...

SU A Fitting Occasion

 

Let'sCraft&Create wants to see something for the boys and in the words of The Beatles "they say it's your birthday" for CASology.

I don't make many masculine cards - strange seeing as I'm the only female in our household (people, dog, cat, hamsters included!). Maybe a preponderance of glitter, girly colours & bling is how I get my fix ...?

Anyhow, for me masculine means CAS, bold colours, graphic images & simple (couldn't resist the one rounded corner tho'!).

Thanks for looking!

Easter Egg Baskets

SU Spring Sampler, SU Itty Bitties
Using the colours from HandStampedSentiments. CelebrateTheOccasion and In(K)spireMe want "Easter", LadybugCrafts and EverbodyArt want to see Spring creations.
The colours are muted as I used watercolour crayons for a softer effect.
For a bit more interest, I embossed the crumb cake card with stripes before punching the scalloped edge.
Don't you love the teeny Easter egg stamp? The new Itty Bitties set has a total of 56 fab images!!

Diamond Anniversary

CAS cards, wedding, anniversary

 

LessIsMore wants to see CAS cards with "frames" this week. Stamps&Fun have the theme of love. CASology has the cue word "song" - I was remembering the moment in the film "Love Actually" when the choir breaks out into "All you need is love" just after the wedding service. Fab fab film if you've not seen it!

Anyhow, this card is for a Diamond Wedding Anniversary card so I steered away from silver and gold and kept to "diamond" hue glitter!
