Here's the 3-D item that we made at card class last week.  I didn't think that I wanted to buy this framelit but when I won it at Leadership I was happy.  So here's my version of an Easter treat.  There's nothing in this bag yet but I'm thinking that a chocolate bar would fit.  I love the DSP with the tulips.  That's part of the Painted Petals paper.  I didn't have an Easter stamp that was quite right so the egg and chick did the trick.  The chick is the bird out of the bird builder punch.  And the egg is just an oval made with the ovals framelits.  It doesn't show in the picture but I ran the treat bag through an embossing folder after I had adhered it together.

Guess what?  Stampin' Up! has added more items to the Sale A Bration things that you can get for free.  Check these out.  Aren't they pretty?  And you can get them free. With each $50.00 order you can pick an item from Sale A Bration. 
I love the in color cord and buttons.  The colors just make me think of spring.  Which I hope is coming soon. 

You can never have to many flower or butterfly stamps.  I've already ordered these for myself.

And this is vellum paper.  I've also ordered this.  Can't wait to see what it's like.

Here's the Christmas card that we did at Thurs. card class.  It's a punch art angel made with the Bow Tie bigz die. 
And here the angel is joined by it's little sibling, an angel made with the bow tie punch.  I think this will be a really cute Christmas tag.

More of Hooray It's Your Day.

Here's another card made from the Hooray It's Your Day project kit.  This one is a little different.  The card is adhered on the sides and the greeting is on the white piece that slides out at the top.  You can see the little star shaped paper clip here.  And more of the wooden stars.  I haven't gotten all of the cards made yet but I'm sure that there will be stars left over to use on something else.

Here's the second card from the Hooray It's Your Day project kit.  This one shows the rays that are created by using the spritz mat.  Just lay the mat on the card stock and spritz with either water or alcohol mixed with a few drops of re-inker. (two spritzers are included in the kit) I like using rubbing alcohol because it dries much faster.  The little stars on here are wooden cutouts that are included in the kit.  And there's a roll of washi tape included in the kit.  My bow is kind of wimpy.  I think I need to practice using the bakers twine.  I can't seem to get the bows just right.

Hooray, It's Your Day.

I finally got around to doing my Make and Takes from Leadership.  We got the project kit called "Hooray It's Your Day" and the stamp set that goes with it.  You can find it on page 16 of the Occasions catalog.  With the kit we got all of the supplies needed to make the cards,  This includes all of the card stock, wooden accessories, two spritzers and two spritz masks. 
This is the first card that I made.  It pays to go slow and think about what you're doing.  I just willy, nilly followed the sample and after I had it done I realized that I could have waited to put the numbers on.  There's a whole sheet of number stickers and if I had waited until I needed a card then I could have added the right numbers.  Oh well, someone will turn 35 some time. 
 This card is a gift card holder so here's what the inside of the card looks like.  With a little alteration.  When I stamped the greeting I dropped the stamp and ended up with a mess.  So I just covered it up with the Bermuda Bay and adhered a new greeting. 

I'll show you another card tomorrow.
