  Blog Tour!!!

Our theme this month:

Spring and Easter ideas

You have probably reached me after visiting Heidi Baks' fabulous blog, and if not, be sure to travel backwards on the tour and visit her! 🙂

The first project I have to share with you is a cute punch art Easter Bunny featuring the Stampin' Up! Oval Collection framelits and oval punches.  Isn't she just TOO CUTE? (yes, she's a she!) 🙂


I had seen this idea online and my upline Sandy shared this bunny idea with me as well.  I thought my little bunny would look cute in a green polkadot Easter basket (from the dollar spot in Target)! 

Do you like her? I am trying to think of a name for her… hmmmm any ideas?


Punch-art-easter-bunny-ovals-framelits<<<<  You can die cut and punch all the pieces you need from a 6×6 piece of designer paper.  This double sided pattern was from the Calypso Coral Celebration Add-on kit (#133431) found on page 30 of the Occasions catalog. The brown polka dots are on the other side of this pattern.

I used both the Oval Collection Framelits (#129381) and 3 different oval punches to create this cutie pie Easter Bunny and her polka dot Easter egg!

The eyes are punched with the circle from the Itty Bitty Punch Shapes pack (#118309), and the nose is the Small Heart Punch (#117193). I used the Chalk Marker (#132133) on the eyes and a Basic Black marker to draw the whiskers and eyelashes.


I honestly think that the last 6 weeks could possibly be the fastest EVER! Where did the time go?  I haven't even had enough time to play with all my Sale a Bration goodies yet and Sale a Bration is almost done!

I know….WHAT!?  REALLY?  YES! it's almost done!

Well, since we have very little time left to share during Sale a Bration I wanted to share one of my favorite SAB card creations with you:


 This is a pretty simple card and it just screams SPRING doesn't it!?

I just can't get enough of the gorgeous Sweet Sorbet Designer Paper choice this Sale a Bration!  It's so springy and colorful!  To receive your pack, enter item code 133521 as your free item with your $50 order online! You can click the shop online button at the top of my blog to place your order.


I added 2 focal points to this card.. a punched tag using the Scalloped Tag Topper punch (#133324) and a die cut label from the Apothecary Accents framelit set (#127003).  I've stamped them with the Petal Parade stamp set, which is ANOTHER freebie item from Sale a Bration!!!  Doesn't that stamp set just go perfectly with the patterned paper!? You almost can't tell which part is stamped and which is the paper! 🙂

Thank you for coming along on the tour today!!  Please enjoy all of the other beautiful spring and Easter projects we have lined up for you!!
