Stampin Up! Happy Home

Hello friends. Yes, I am still crafting, but unfortunately not as much as I used to be able to.

I am now a Grandmother to 3 girls (5 yrs, 18 mos & 3 mos), 2 of which live with me full time. I love them all dearly, but they do not leave me much time for my blog (especially the 18 month old). I am going to try to post a little more often, but I can't guarantee anything (sorry).

Here is a card I made using the new Happy Home stamp set by Stampin Up! This set contains three separate scene stamps that I combined into one. I am still working on my inking/coloring, so it is not perfect my any means, but I love it just the same.


Recipe:
A2 card (Wild Wasabi)
Basic Black mat 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"
Whisper White mat 5 1/4" x 4"
Stampin Up Happy Home Stamp Set

Easter Card 4: Bunny in a Basket



Recipe:
A2 card
Pink mat @ 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
Printed mat @ 4" x 5.25"
Purple mat @ 5" from Elegant Edges (button 5)
Bunny in a Basket & all parts @ 4" from Baby Steps (button 41)

A very special thank you to Glora at Glora's Crafts for helping me figure out this cut.

I contacted Glora and asked her about, what appeared to me to be, 2 missing egg cuts. She agreed and said that she had recut her base cut for one of the eggs and hand traced the other one. Me? .... well I am a little lazy and I usually mass produce my cards to send to family. So, I went to my handy-dandy Gypsy and sized the "green" egg cut to fit (for the yellow and plaid egg).
