Eight Great Greetings

Wow…the weekend is over again!  They go by SO fast!  I’m excited for this week, though…we are headed out to see our eldest son in Kansas City!  He was transferred and moved into a new home in January and we haven’t seen him since Christmas!  Plus there is some huge car show out there this weekend…of course the guys will check that out…I’m going to go shopping! 

Here is a second Easter card I made using Eight Great Greetings.  That bunny is TOO much fun!  Remember, even though this set is in the new Occasions Mini (you should get yours in the mail this week!), you can order three of the sets now!  Click HERE to see the sets!

With this card, I started with a base of So Saffron and added a panel of Delicate Dots Designer Paper (blue dots).  I stamped the Easter Bunny with Basic Black on Whisper White and colored her in with my Blender Pen and markers.  That was layered on Bashful Blue.  I used another design, the hearts, from the Delicate Dots Designer Paper (Sale-A-Bration free gift with $50 purchase!) and layered that on Pretty in Pink and wrapped some new So Saffron striped ribbon around that layer.  I added a So Saffron Round Tab stamped with Happy Easter (I divided the greeting from the Easter Bunny for more versitality) and slipped it under the Pretty in Pink layer.  Finally, I used my Trio Flower punch with Pretty in Pink, then added 1/4 circle So Saffron punch centers to each flower.

Those small images are great to use with lots of designer paper!  I have some time today…I’m going to try to play with a few of the other stamps in that set!  It is great for beginners or more experienced stampers because of the variety of images in it!

I also need to prepare for my Punch Class this Wednesday!  If you are in the Columbus, Ohio, area…email me to attend!  I’d love to meet you!
