Baby Bunny Card in Sepia Tones

What is not to love about the cute bunny image from the Sweet Little Something stamp set by Stampin' UP?  I decided to show it off by creating a Sepia look tonal image using the 3 step stamp.  It has that classic 1800's old photo look. Just stamp the image in the lightest shade of Sahara Sand, then Soft Suede and Chocolate Chip.  The sweet little bunny looks classic with her wood flower as an accent.

Make Your Own Stamp Pad

Make Your Own Stamp Pad With A Baby Wipe

For this technique, you need a pack of baby wipes and reinkers in Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Rich Razzleberry.  Simply fold one baby wipe over so there are several layers.  Make stripes of the three colors with the reinkers right next to each other on the wipe.  You are going to use this as your stamp pad.  Ink up the large "Happy" sentiment and stamp on whisper white card stock.  Cut it out with the Lots of Labels Framelit. Simply mount the layers on the card as shown in the picture with Stampin' dimensionals. Very little work but a lot of impact!

Painted With Love Narrow Note Cards

This little notes are so easy to put together. Simply cut the DSP to size and glue to the front of the card.  I used several of the heart stamp images in various colors in the palette and embossed 2 cards with gold embossing powder.  

The images are cut out from the coordinating framelits in the bundle.  They are attached to the card fronts with dimensionals.  To finish the gift off,  I stacked the card with 4 envelopes and tied a matching piece of Sale-a-bration ribbon around the stack while looping a tassle in the bow.  These would be a nice hostess gift or teacher gift.  They are great for kids to exchange for Valentine's Day as well.

Washi Winter Wonderland

The Colorful Seasons Bundle is definitely one of my favorite things from the Annual Catalog.  I decided to use the winter themed die to create an unusual combination of snowflakes using Washi tape.  

Most people really don't know what to do with Washi tape other than to hold dies in place on your big shot. It really can be a versatile element in scrapbooking and card making.  It is a simple way to add pattern and color.  But did you know that you can stick it down to a piece of whisper white card stock in any pattern you like, and then place your die over it and cut it on the big shot?
