May Good Things Grow

This month's Paper Pumpkin
May Good Things Grow

This month's kit is chalk full of cards and look how beautiful and vintage and springy they are!

I only changed a few things when I started making all the cards.  
I used all the pieces in the kit

The seeds envelopes are perfect for adding a envelope of seeds as  a gift for a co-worker or friend.

You can find the seed packages at the Dollar Tree 4 for $1.00
I should have used flower seed packs but my dollar tree was out of them so I ended up with herbs instead.

All of the pieces are from the kit

You can use and layer all the pieces with the dimensionals to make the cards look 3D.

Bunnies and Chicks

 Last year I found these Dove Bunnies and Chicks for Easter and they are back again this year!
When I made them last year I only put bunnie bums on the bunnies, this year I decided on adding googlie eyes to the Chicks

The Dove candies can be found at Rite-aid 2 for $5

I used a glue gun to attach the eyes and tails to the candy.
You may think that it would melt the chocolate, but it didn't. 
You can use glue dots, which would be probably be better,
 I just felt like using the glue gun, as it allowed me to go faster for as many as I made.

The mini pom poms and googlie eyes can be found at your local craft store.

Cute little chickie!

Easter Decor

Spring has sprung over here, that means time for Easter/Spring decor!  I know I will get asked where I found this galvanized 3 tier tray so here goes.  It's from Hobby Lobby, either online or store and if you hit the sale then the cost is just $19.00.

I added the Rae Dunn Hip and Hop mugs with some distressed eggs and grass.  Try and look around your house to see what you have on hand before you go out to buy.  Sometimes we have sooo much in cupboard and closets that we forget what we have!

I found the chippy vintage window at a garage sale for $15.
Added the wreath and sign and the Easter banner to decorate it for Easter.

Easter Treats

Are you getting ready for Easter?
Here is an idea for your Easter table, gifts for friends, school treats or to take to a luncheon or book club.

Start by cutting a piece of cardstock 2"x 4"
score each side at 1/4" and fold.

It should look like this once folded.  Add three of the Dove chocolate eggs and put inside of the 2 " x  8" cello bag and tie with twine.

I found these Dove eggs at Target.  
They are milk chocolate with coconut center.  So delish!

Party Pandas

There is still time to earn this cute Party Panda set for free!
Our Sale a Bration event runs through March 31st.
Place an order of $50.00 or more and choose from a variety of products for FREE!  The more you spend, the more you choose!

This card is called an easel card.  Super easy to make.  Start by cutting yourself a regular sized card.  5 1/2" x 4 1/2" then fold
the top side of the corner over to create the mountain or what it looks like in the photo, a peak.   I used the happy little party hat panda to hold the card in place.  By placing a flower, panda or any image on the lower portion of the card, it anchors the easel in place to hold it up.  I used a dimensional to pop the panda up.

You can see in the close up how the edge of the card rests slightly underneath the pandas head.   Choose your colors and start to create one of the easel cards.  The back piece that goes on top of the cards is measured at 4 1/4" x 4 1/2" 
 The candle designer paper measures at 4" x 4 1/4".  

The Melon Mambo birthday banner is measured at 1 1/4" x 3 1/2"
I hand cut the end of the banner with paper snips.
The yellow strip at the bottom by the party hat panda is washi tape.

Using a black stampin write maker I added cute little eye lashes to the pandas eyes.  Love her!

Bunny Chick

Funny little card for you today
I used the chick from the set Honeycomb happiness and the ears
from the past Paper Pumpkin set called Bunnie Buddies.

I used the Aqua Painter and the So Saffron yellow ink pad to color the chick in.   The cracked egg is made by punching out Soft Sky cardstock with the oval punch. 
 Once you punch it out, hand cut the egg in half.
