Garden Girl and Basket Weave Embossing Folder

Hello and welcome back! Today's card is a thank you card I had to make a bunch of! My two youngest daughters raised 4H Rabbits this winter and they needed to write thank yous to all the buyers. So, I pulled out the Garden Girl set and made a really sweet set of cards along with the Basket Weave Embossing Folder. 

I colored the bunny to look like theirs- Californian Rabbits. I also stamped and colored in the fence from the same set. Remember, the Basket Weave Folder is a Sale A Bration product. You can only get it free when you spend $100 though the end of March. 

I used my Smokey Slate Stampin' Blends to color the bunny. You can also see the detail of the embossed paper here. 

And here is Emma with one of her bunnies. We sure do miss them! 

And my youngest, Addie, with her favorite bunny. They're already counting down the days until we get a new round of bunnies next year!

Blooming Basket Bundle (Sale A Bration)

Hello everyone! Today, I want to show you some cards I've made with the Blooming Basket Bundle that was in the second Sale A bration release.  I've been playing with it quite a bit! It's a level two, which means it's free with a $100 purchase. It includes a stamp set and an embossing folder. 

This one is a CASE from the catalog. It includes quite a bit of fussy cutting, but is well worth it as you can see! 

This is the card I made that led to the apple pie card. I had to stop and make the apple pie card immediately before I could finish this one! 

This is the first one I made with it. I used Watercolor Pencils to color in the flowers. 

And this one is a CASE from Sarah Schueler. I inked the folder with a Foam Roller before I embossed it. 

Remember, these two items are only available through the end of March, or until supplies run out. You can get them for free with a $100 purchase. You can see all of the Sale A bration items here

This cute little treat holder is perfect to make to hand out to all your friends! He's traditionally a Santa, but a few color change and a hat make him into a leprechaun! 

Inside are gummy rainbows, of course! You can find them here

Fancy Friday Color Challenge

Hello everyone and welcome to the February Fancy Friday Blog Hop! This month, our theme a color theme! Great spring colors, don't you think? 
It's been gloomy and rainy and cold here for a solid week so I pulled out a set that kind of represented my mood. I like rain, and I love the greenness it brings, so I pulled out Weather Together. 
I actually really struggled to get a photo of this card because it's SO dark and gloomy (and wet) outside. I take all my photos outside so this is a really hard time of the year for me to photograph. But, a little editing it helped to lighten it up and you can really see how beautiful that Emerald Envy is up agains the Night of Navy. 

I colored in the umbrella with an Aqua Painter and Emerald Envy ink. I colored the puddle in Pool Party, although it loos so much like the Emerald in the photo, I'm wondering if I dipped my brush in the Emerald the second time! LOL!! You can also see I added some of the Epoxy Glitter and Clear Stickers. Love those so much! 

The DSP was the starting point for me. This is my favorite pattern in the Tutti Frutti DSP stack. I love that stack so much and have used it for a ton of different project unrelated to the suite of products that are designed to go with it! 

Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure you hop along to see all the other beauties these wonderful ladies have come up with! Next up is Jennifer Frost
