Easter Blessings

Hi friends, Joy on deck today showing you an Easter Card I made with supplies from the Classy Cards 'n Such online store.  This is for the challenge this week.  Have you ever challenged a friend to do a card with you and enter into the challenges -- you need to try it.  I often challenge my sister - we text and email each other about it.   It's fun and one of you could be the winner of a nice prize! --- OK, let's get to the card.

This was made using a few of my favorite scraps - the ones I just hate to throw away.  I used paper scraps from Kaisercraft called Key to My Heart and Lake House.  The base for the greeting is Decorative Labels Eight from Spellbinders, the next layer is Vintage Labels Five from JustRite.  I colored those sweet little eggs from Sparkle 'n Sprinkle's Bird Song.  The Easter Blessings sentiment is from JustRite's Spring Words -- which is an awesome set of 20 different holiday sentiments - PERFECT for this time of the year.  I shaded all the edges of the pieces with a Tim Holtz Mini Ink Blending Tool and popped up all the elements with Joy Foam Pads.

Now make your card or project according to the guidelines for this challenge.  You will find them at ClassyCardsnSuch.blogspot.com.  You can link your card there or here on my blog!  Thanks and maybe you will be that winner of a great prize!

Welcome to all of our new blog followers!   I'm so happy you are with us!

Hoppy Easter

Hello Classy Friends.  Diane with you today with my card for this week's challenge, Bunnies Rule!

I think Spring and Easter go hand in hand and decided on
this cute Easter/Spring card!

I love all the shaker cards I have been seeing lately and thought the Small Madison Window by PoppyStamps
would be perfect for one! The glass behind the window is a piece of the packaging that some of the dies/products arrive in.  Nothing better than to recycle when you can!

I added the Small Madison Shutter, one on each side, cut from a scrap of pink card stock.  I thought making the shutters pink would be fun for Easter!

Now the fun part!!  I added the Small Madison Flower Box.
I have always wanted a window box, and this is the closest I will ever get..LOL!  The window was filled with a branch from the Large Bird on a Branch die by Impression Obsession.   I just snipped the poor birdie off and stole his branch for my card!!  I used Impression Obsession Eggs from the die set Girl With Easter Basket.  They were simply colored with markers.

Bunnies were added along with bits of grass, both from the die set Mini Bunnies, also by Impression Obsession. The sentiment, Hoppy Easter, is one I have had forever from my stash!!

Thank you for visiting with me today!!

Some Bunny says Hello

Hi!  I'm sharing a Easter/spring themed card with us inspired by this week's challenge at CCNS.  I had just gotten some new goodies from the on-line store so I couldn't wait to play.  

First, I played with the Smoky Peridot from the Twinkling H2Os Thankful collection to make my grass with the Impression Obsession Grass Border die.  I then die-cut a set of bunnies with Springtime Bunnies on white card stock. 

For my base layer which was the the stitched rectangle from My Favorite Things Blueprints 13, I embossed some chevron stripes using a Darice embossing folder and then sponged Broken China in just a small area. I arranged my die cuts on the sponged area and adhered the grass and two of the bunnies. The last bunny I popped up with small Joy! foam pads. I added a mini tag with a sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs Ornate Frame Sentiments
that was also popped up and threaded through with green twine.  And of course I had to use my new Water Dew Drops - loving these!

I hope you can play along!
If you are unable to find an item in the store, or would like something special ordered, please email me at beverly@classycardsnsuch.com.

Have A Hoppy Day

Shirley posting today.  Here is a card I made for the Bunnies Rule challenge this week.  

I wanted to make a box card for this challenge, I thought the bunnies would look cute in it.   I chose to use brown card stock for the box.  For the sides and the back of the box, I used Graphic 45 Botanical Tea paper. I used dies from my collection to cut the shapes for my panels.

The sentiment I used "Have a Hoppy Day" was from a stamp I have had awhile, but definitely seemed perfect to add to my box card.

I used the Memory Box Willoughby Butterfly Wings butterfly, cutting it from the Botanical Tea Collection.  I added a tear drop white pearl between the butterfly wings.  I used the Impression Obsession Bunny Set for the sweet little bunnies in my box.  I used Botanical Tea paper for the Impression Obsession Small Grass Border for the grass that I added for the bunnies to play in.  I used Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive to attach the grass to my box.

I had a oval punch that I used for the eggs to place in the grass using more of the Botanical Tea and a scrap of paper from my scrap bag.  

That completes my card for today.  I am happy you stopped in to visit us.
