Studio calico Cirque kits are up and ready for you to purchase! I made these cards with the Cirque card kit. I adore the cute Easter word die-time to start thinking about my Easter projects! Hurry and go shop before things sell out!
Here are a few ideas for perfectly pretty gift packaging for your sweet treats! Since Easter is almost here I spruced up a Kraft box-I think this would be so sweet for an Easter brunch kids table favors. This little box could hold jellybeans or chocolate eggs and be saved to reuse next year. Then I made a few chic treat boxes for just about any occasion-beautiful wedding favors to birthday favors.
There are 4 days until you can get the new March release!! Today I am showing off new MFT's Funky Florals stencil. I used it two ways-on the pillow box & card with a blending foam & ink for a soft and light feel. Then I used modeling paste on a gift/decorative box-which gave it a cool raised texture. Remember there is more new stuff to see on the MFT's Blog & the rest of the DT blogs-don't miss out on seeing MORE!
Time to get ready for Easter and the new product release from MFT's! I used the new MFT's Easter Bunny stamps & Die-namics to make these cards & pillow treat box. I think that the Easter Bunny die is so sweet and I couldn't stop using it. I also think I need to use it to make a garland! The MFT's Blog has lots going on-even a chance to win a $75 gc. Check out the MFT"S Blog for details...and more links to the DT's personal blogs for more inspiration.
Last night I made two new cards with two new dies-the butterfly and the hexagons. I bought the hexagons for a project that called for them and then I did these cards for fun. The butterfly-I am always trying to find cool butterfly shapes & sizes. I thought I wouldn't use the body piece-now I kinda of like it.
Here is another stained wood egg-with some pearls, rhinestones, and a bit of gold string. A few months ago I made these rabbits out of clay-this is how far I got. I am not sure if I want to finish them more than they are-I am afraid of doing something all wrong! I think they are sweet as is, or are they?!
About 2 weeks ago I bought some wood & paper mache eggs to decorate. I love the pretty pastel colors of spring/Easter, but I want a more natural glitz to my Easter! I did a dark stain on the wood egg, but I held back on scattering the pearl stickers I first envisioned-sometimes you have to pull back on the glitz. On the large paper mache egg I used coarse & fine glitter, then wrapped gold/silver cord around the center. I have a few more wood eggs to decorate, one will have those pearls!
Happiness is....stumbling upon an inspiring blog. Swoon. Love at first sight. Your photography, your projects, your eye for the detail - my heart just wants to stop here and stay for a while. Thank you for sharing your pieces of beautiful. Your new fan, Louise X
Hi Keisha! I've been following your blog for years and I must say, I really do love your cards. I was wondering what white cardstock you use... it has a nice bit of texture, but not too much! Could you please let us know? Thanks!
I made two quick cards today with some new things that came in the mail-more embossing folders & a bunny/chick die. I am excited that I have some new things to try this weekend-even a box of Stampin Up goods that just arrived. It's been a while since I have order from Stampin Up-new stamps, punches, dies, and a embossing folder!
My first Easter project-using Michael's dollar bin stamps(the bunny with the bow, the chick, sheep, and the egg)! I love these stamps, they were just what I wanted-more realistic and vintage. I wished they had more choices & sentiments that I liked just as much as these. The one bunny with the egg tag-that bunny stamp wasn't from the dollar bin. I can't to use them for cards!
These are so pretty! Do you send these cards through the mail, and if so, how do you protect all the gorgeous embellishments? I'm still hoping you'll do a video tutorial on your embossing. I'd love to see how you get it so crisp too. :)
Heaven, I am not sure if I have sent any cards through the mail...most go attached to gifts w/o envelopes!! And my Big Shot did all the embossing work this time-no more hand cramps doing it the hard way!!
