Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Today I’m bringing back a really cute Easter card and a scrapbook page! With the products we currently have in our catalog today, you could easily recreate either of these two projects.
My “technique” that I was teaching when these were created was “Dying your Glimmer Paper”. I taught my classes how to use your ink refills and either a sponge dauber or the Stampin’ Spritzers to color the Glimmer paper … NOW you don’t have too! With the beautiful colors of Glimmer Paper Stampin’ Up! has brought out for Sale-a-bration all you have to do is punch! No fuss required!
The first is my bunny card …
Both the bunny and the eggs were created with a combination of circle and oval punches … now, I think I would use the Layering Circle and Oval Framelits. You will have a greater choice of sizes this way. The little bunny tail was made with a flower punch.
I used the same format on my scrapbook page as I did on my card. That is one thing that I have always taught in my classes. Use what inspires you to create what ever you need. How do you like the little chick I tucked inside the cracked egg? Again, made with the oval 🙂
OK, I have one more card that I want to share with you that I created using the “Dying your Glimmer Paper” technique …
You could easily recreate this card using the Sale-a-bration Glimmer paper. And you know what … the “Petite Petals” punch that I used to make this card is still in the catalog!! You know what else would be cute … the Elegant Butterfly punch.
Just because something is old (Created 2014) … doesn’t mean it can’t be new again!
Thank you for stepping back in time with me today, I hope this inspires you to get creative and have some fun!
Have yourself a wonderful day ~

Hello Stampin’ Friends,
If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been having a great time down in my Stampin’ Studio creating cards with all the new products from the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs.
Today I’d like to share a touch of Valentine’s day with you … before we know it, it will be here and we want to be prepared. I began with the cute new “Happy Heart” Textured Impressions folder and used it with the “Shimmery White” cardstock.
Sometimes I like to pull stuff out of my stash, that I haven’t used for a while. I find that most of the time is works beautifully together with our new items, and our Shimmery White cardstock is subtly beautiful with just a touch of shimmer.
I wanted to create a “Shaker Card” so I used the “Sweetheart” punch from the catalog and punched out a section for my window. I covered it with a piece of the Window Sheets and then used the outer edges of the stampin’ dimensionals to create the “well” in which I put my confetti in.
To create the confetti I used the “Confetti Heart Border Punch” in the Occasions catalog – pg.5. and punched them out in different colors, the punch already supplies you with different sizes! I then pealed off the backing from the stampin’ dimensionals and covered it with a piece of the Shimmery White cardstock.
Now, I wanted some type of greeting or verse on the inside so I decided to create my own with the “Crazy About You” stamp set. It contains 33 stamps and will create endless greetings and or verses for you. Here is what I came up with …
I snuck the little hearts out of the “Hello Life” stamp set to complete the look on the inside.
To finish the outside of my card, I added one more heart that I punched our of Rich Razzelberry. The heart comes from the “Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack”.
I wanted the “shaker” part of the card to be the focal point so did not add a greeting or ribbon to the front … just the one little heart. As it turns out, it matches those little hearts from the embossing folder perfectly!
Thanks for dropping by,,, have a heartfelt day ♥
