Everybunny Oval

Sorry about not posting Saturday & Monday. We spent the weekend working on our is our help. And the kids have their Mid-Winter Break this week, just in time for me to get a stomach bug.
But we are back to work and up & Stampin'!  With posting everyday(ish) I have found that I need to make a schedule to help keep things fresh and new. So this week I'm going to try something new and my goal is to be able to do this once a month. Since I'm so original in thinking of names we'll call it....The Stamp Set of the Week! (Nice right) I'll make three cards and one 3-d project using the same stamp set all week. (I know!)

So for it's launch...The Stamp Set of the Week is Everybunny this month. 

Here is what was used in today's card:
Everybunny Stamp Set
Stazon & Regal Rose ink pads
Whisper White & Regal Rose cardstock
Watercolor Crayons - Brights & Aqua Painter
Chevron Embossing Folder & Ovals Framelits Dies
Regal Rose Taffeta Ribbon & Rhinestone Basic Jewels

Crazy Wednesday!

I think this my be a trend for my Wednesday's (I hope not) but it is again a crazy Wednesday.
I had. My Parent-Tot class that I teach at the Community Center and of course late last night I came up with a brilliant change of plans for the craft project but the change involved a quick shopping trip before class. But there is nothing like giving kids cookies, frosting & sprinkles to keep them entertained for 10 whole minutes!

Then I found out after school that Madelyn needed a box for her Valentine party. Well luckily I have a surplus of craft supplies. Then she wanted to use the Cricut Expressions 2. I I haven't really used this new toy before now (or at least to get the images to fit right) I think this is why I love my Big Shot better than the Cricut. After thirty minutes and my husband laughing at me I finally got it.

So tomorrow we will return to the normal cards and 3-d Stampin' Up! projects.

Best Of Everything

While I finish up getting my kids Valentine's done they were of course getting into some of my stuff and happened to find the featured item in today's card......wonder color crayons!

These are so much fun to use and can be used many different ways. For today's card I colored with the crayons right onto the stamp (you can use more than one color and blend away!) and the misted the stamp with plain water. Give the water a few seconds to spread over the whole stamp and voila watercolor made easy.

Here is what I used for today's card.......
Best of Everything stamp set
Regal Rose & Natural White card stock
Floral District DSP
Bright Watercolor Crayons
Regal Rose classic ink pad
Curly Label punch & Cloudy Day Embossing Folder

Family Day

Today was a family day for us here. The older two kids got to go to their Pokemon league and play with other kids their age. Afterward we had my nephews birthday party to go to and we got to see little Ben who is spending the weekend with his grandparents.

And instead of coming home and getting some craft time in we got the next step in our basement project started. Of course Maddie was there to help out. Nothing like building while decked out in Hello Kitty gear.

I hope you had a great day too! (hopefully tomorrow I can get some craft time in)

Latte Love Card

Today is normally my get it done day (since lil' Ben is in school 1/2 the day) but today I was able to help a friend out and got a lil' guy to watch and hang out with. It is so much fun (I think anyway) to get to watch other people's kids because for the most part they will behave better for you then they would with their own parents. So it was a wonderful change of pace for the day.

But that doesn't mean I don't have a card for you today! :)
I love this stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration is one of my favorite's right now.

Moving Trio

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I really enjoyed the Superbowl last night and some of the commercials were over the top. What was your favorite commercial? Leave a comment for some blog candy! (I will pick the winner Friday @ 2pm eastern, good luck!)

Today's card is a bonus is three cards in one. Or really three cards from one stamp set and one card layout. I couldn't decide which image to use (has that ever happened to you!) and I decided to just do all three :) I am trying really hard to create cards outside my comfort zone....using those sets that I have but have never used! It's really sad how many retired stamp sets that I have that I never tried to use.

Anyhow.....on to today's card(s)
 Here is what is used:
Natural White, Chocolate Chip, Real Red & Midnight Muse card stock
Chocolate Chip, Real Red & Midnight Muse Stampin' Write Markers
Mini Brads
Moving Forward stamp set

Birthday Blast Off!

Today's card was really fun to design (I feel like I say that everyday....but hey, anytime I get to stamp is fun!). I love the new Cloudy Day embossing folder in the new Spring Catalog and I've had the Blast Off stamp set just waiting for the right day to get used & you guessed it today was that day.

I really like how the two products although in two different catalogs went together today. I also made the clouds with the Build a Cupcake punch! Talk about totally different products working together!

Here are the supplies that I made for this card:
Natural Ivory, Pool Party, Real Red & Whisper White card stock
Midnight Muse, Pumpkin Pie & Gumball Green inkpads
Midnight Muse & Real Red Stampin' Write Markers
Cloudy Day Embossing Folder
Build a Cupcake & 1 1/4" Circle punches
