Seed Packet


The challenge at SCS today is to use seeds as a theme. I had this old unmarked seed packet background stamp that I used for a shaker, filled with brown microbeads. The sweet pea bouquet and other sentiments are by Hero Arts.
Planted some seed starts this week of herbs and veggies in case we are still stuck at home for a while. Flowers are secondary this year.

Cottontail


Another Easter card using the Simon Says Stamp Cottontail Wishes set. Martha Stewart grass punch used for bottom. Embossed sentiment in white detail powder.

Have Courage


Today's challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp blog is Anything Goes using Gina K products if you have them. I chose the "Wild At Heart" set and thought this sentiment was so moving in light of what we are all going through right now.
I used one of my panels that I have a box of from one of my distress oxide inks and alcohol inks sessions where I made so many A2 sized backgrounds to have on hand. I loved the various colors in this one. I embossed the stamp in Versamark and SU Glassy Glaze. Stamped sentiment on black card stock with white detail powder and cut with SU Sweetly Stitched frame die.

Neon Pop Egg



Easy styrofoam egg with the Stampin' Up! 3 flower punch. Punched a ton of these from Green Galore, Pixie Pink, Only Orange, and Yoyo Yellow, all retired SU colors. Using the little foam piercing mat I pushed down in the very center of each with this old embossing tool to curve the petals up. Remember the old days when we would actually emboss by hand with stencils and styluses?
Make sure that you use the flat end of the stylus to push all of the pins into the egg or your fingertips will be super sore.

Happy Spring!


It's official, Spring is finally here! Yay, what a gorgeous day. It felt more like summer but let's not rush things. This flat easy to mail card uses Stampin' Up! card stocks of Whisper White, Barely Banana, and Green Galore. Seems like the neon shades are coming back so I'm glad I kept them.
For the Stencil challenge at SSS using their Simon Says Stamp Bunny Butt set with the Daisy Bouquet stencil.
