Have an Egg-Cellent Easter!

Happy almost Sunday, everyone! Every Sunday, I post inspiration with High Hopes Rubber Stamps on the One Crazy Stamper blog. Since I schedule my blog here to post at the same time, it ends up being a late Saturday night post.

Well, happy Easter Sunday in just a few short hours. We’re spending the weekend with family and celebrating a most special event. Not only is the Easter bunny coming to visit (a cause for celebration in itself) but my youngest is a very important five years old today!

And so, for my not-so-little baby, I made this Egg-Cellent Friend card featuring this adorable baby elephant and friends.

I had planned to make this a birthday card, but instead settled on Script Easter Greetings. Quite frankly, it’s still going to be a birthday card (even though at five, the cards don’t get all the attention they deserve).

I sure hope your Sunday is as special as a five-year-old’s birthday on Easter (and that’s pretty special).

Much crafty love.

Mystery Image Swap – February 2019 Image

Remember that time, three months ago where I stated my full intention to be on time with my mystery image cards this year? Yeah, I remember that too.

And, then reality comes along and crafting and coloring turns to laundry and tax season. It’s all cool, we’ve got the whole year to get back on track (sigh).

Angie chose our image for February and went with a masculine choice. I love this little bear, “Mr. Fix-it” from Stampavie. I found this perfectly matching paer and kept my embellishments simple (I think!).

And, now to find out where this lovely card is headed!

March image is in my hands, but April’s is not. In my crazy world, that means I can still catch up…can I do it? Let’s find out.

Unidentified Image Swap – April 2019

Hello Everyone! It’s time for the next round of the Unidentified Image Swap. I always have so much fun with this group. I don’t usually make duplicate cards, for some reason when these images come along, I can’t wait to get started!

The image for this round was chosen by Lela. I found the perfect paper to pair it with! Say cheese, everyone.

The next round of this swap is in June. I’m host, which means my image choice. I hope everyone likes what I chose!

Easter Treats

Happy almost Sunday, everyone! Every Sunday, I post inspiration with High Hopes Rubber Stamps on the One Crazy Stamper blog. Since I schedule my blog here to post at the same time, it ends up being a late Saturday night post.

Easter is right around the corner, so I decided to make for you today a couple of Easter treat bags using Small Easter Bunny. This cutie comes in a larger size as well, but I thought the smaller size was perfect for my project.

The first treat bag is a simple design with no sides on it. It’s basically a long piece of cardstock scored into a triangular shape, with an extra flap to close the bag up. The wrapped treat has been stapled to the front panel. I put a magnet closure in it to make it easy to reuse, if you like.

The second treat bag is fully enclosed. The top ties shut with the ribbon closure, making it perfect for many Easter treats, from wrapped to unwrapped. This treat holder also uses the High Hopes Script Easter Greetings sentiment.

Here they are side by side. For those of you interested in copic colors, I used C00, C0, C1, C3 and C5 for my rabbits, with a little RV10 on their nose and inside their ears. And, I used E33, Y21, Y23 and YR23 for the floppy Easter hat. The rest of the colors can be planned to match your project.

Let’s Play!

Happy almost Sunday, everyone! Every Sunday, I post inspiration with High Hopes Rubber Stamps on the One Crazy Stamper blog. Since I schedule my blog here to post at the same time, it ends up being a late Saturday night post.

April’s off to a great start! It’s warm-ish, but at least the snow hasn’t appeared yet. That’s pretty good for April!

Around our house, there’s excitement for extended park visits, bike rides, sidewalk art pictures and the upcoming start to soccer season. This year, we’ve got two little players and one big coach! With games twice a week, it makes for a busy spring. But, everyone has so much fun.

So for this week, I made an adorable waterbottle topper to kick off the season!

Super easy, this was! I simply made a bookmark (using my fishtail flag dies, but a rectangle would work too) and then punched a hole in one end big enough for the bottle top. Then, I scored a line underneath the circle to have it lie flat against the bottle.

The High Hopes image, Soccer Star, was perfect for this project! I simply cut it out with my circle dies, layered it onto a scalloped circle and then added the sentiment, Play Like a Girl. Here’s a close up:

Since it’s for my beautiful daughter, I just couldn’t resist adding a little bling! Now, let’s play!
