We’ve Been Busy

So, we’ve been busy. My wife has worked a lot of overtime on her other job this past 2 weeks, and Easter is a big season for me. However, we have not stopped making cards. In fact, my wife has made about 20-30+ cards for Easter this past week. In addition to using a new die (NOT A STAMPIN’ UP DIE) that she found. We’ll show you the non SU project later.  Below are a few of the cards she’s been busy with this week. We hope you enjoy. Remember, you can order anytime by contacting us and placing an order for one of her cards she makes. All individual cards are $5 (includes matching envelope)  2 cards for $9.50 and 3 or more cards for $4 each.

This was a cute little homemade treat bag and an easter card that I made for my graphics assistant at church. Janel made the bag, I call it my schitso-bag. One side is fun, the other side, as you’ll see below is classy.  The card is a simple Easter cross and Celebrate, while Happy Easter is on the inside. I used two pieces of other card stock and created a wrap around daisey in flirty flamingo and then a Bermuda bay card stock.

I think my assistant was warmly surprised both by the chocolates and treats but because it just feels GREAT to get a card and something made with love. I think hand made cards and treat bags just seem to show that the person receiving is valuable. Anyone can go to the store… but if you have something hand made, or you make it yourself, that says this person is very special, and worth more than a trip to a card shoppe.

Check out the wonderful ways to say “you’re appreciated”, “You’re special to me” and more below.

 

 

 

Bunny Buddies

EggSpressions of Love CardsMar 21March Paper Pumpkin Bunny Buddies

MARCH PAPER PUMPKIN BUNNY BUDDIES

Part of the planning process for each kit includes the Paper Pumpkin team gathering together to assemble the kit once we receive a final sample. It’s one of our favorite things! When we sat down to create this kit, we couldn’t help but love it! The best part was personalizing the bunnies. The mix-and-match stamping works beautifully on the cards and bags. It’s also worth mentioning that our second- favorite part was adding the pompom bunny tails—too cute! We hope you enjoy the kit as much as we do.

Each Bunny Buddies Kit comes with supplies for nine bunny cards and bags. You might recognize the patterns and colors. They are from the Playful Palette Suite, found on p. 118 of the 2016-2017 annual catalog. The jewel-toned color scheme is soft and fun for springtime while the patterns offer a modern twist. And after all, “playful” is the perfect way to describe little bunnies, right? Be sure to check out the full product suite online or in the catalog.

We always like to share more ideas with you and this month is no “egg”ception. Here are three ideas we think you’ll find simply “ear”resistible! (Much in the same way that we can’t resist a good bunny pun.)

First up, it’s easy to transform the bunny bags into little baskets. Just tie up the ears and add a tag. Everything you need is already in the kit—including three different colors of baker’s twine!

Next up is another treat bag, but for a slightly larger treat—like maybe a giant chocolate Easter egg or a solid chocolate bunny. (Okay, it doesn’t have to be chocolate!) Decorate a Petite Café Gift Bag with accessories from the kit. This adorable pompom trim looks like it’s straight out of the Playful Palette Suite, but it’s actually a custom creation. Use a needle and Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine to thread some of the pompom bunny tails together. Pretty brilliant, right? We think so.

Finally, don’t forget about the other images in the Bunny Buddies Stamp Set. Send an eggs-pression of love to some“bunny” you love with this cheerful card. Stamp the eggs with a bright palette and then add some texture with the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
