Getting creative!

My box of new catty goodies came this week!
I finally got them trimmed and have been able to stamp a bit.

Here's a kick stand Easter frame card.

I used pink polka dot patterned paper from Berry Bliss Designer Series Paper and stamped the egg on it. Then I stamped flowers in Close to Cocoa all over the egg. On a floral patterned paper from the same Berry Bliss DSP, I stamped the zigzag in Chocolate Chip, trimmed it out, and glued it on the egg, leaving the left end of the zigzag unglued.

The egg was then trimmed out roughly and glued onto Whisper White cardstock for thickness. I carefully cut around the egg. On a scrap of Whisper White, I stamped the egg in Close to Cocoa. The chick was colored with Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write Marker and Apricot Appeal Stampin' Write marker and stamped into the middle of the egg. The egg was trimmed out and attached to the other egg with a small scrap of Whisper White cardstock. On the inside of the egg, I stamped "You crack me up."


Here's another quick card I put together.

I used mostly scraps for this card. I am low on different pink cardstock, so I stamped the flowers in different shades of pink. I used Boho Blossoms punch for the flowers and the scallop punch for the medallion up on top. The little flower in the middle of the medallion was cut out by hand.

Happy Stampin'!
