Another card inspired by a sticker

I almost forgot about this card!

Spring Flowers Easter Card

I’m not even sure what I was looking for but found this Spring Flowers sticker all by itself. Well, Scrapanda has challenged us to use our stickers and I happily accepted. I went looking at sketches and found Sketch Saturday #402 would work nice with the sticker. I then went to my Easter scraps and found this old KI scrap that matched perfectly!! The tag looked to bare so I got out my new basket weave embossing folder since baskets go with Spring! Got out my EK Success flower punch to add a little something in the corner of the tag! Oh and a little purple gingham ribbon and the card was done…all inspired by a sticker!!


He is Risen!

I needed a Christian themed Easter Card so I went with this FREE image at Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps. I tried to find the post with the freebie in it but I think it was several years ago on her old blog so I couldn’t find it.

In the March Inspirational Card Challenge @ the Lift Category was on of Scrapanda’s cards and this is my version of it.

An ornery Easter

Happy Easter Bunny

So I saw this image at Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps and he just made me smile in all his plaid and polka dot combination! So I wanted to use him but didn’t have anything in mind at the time. Well, a friend of mine, Dale, was in the hospital last month with heart issues. I wanted to make him a get well card but nothing came to mind. He is already home now so I thought maybe I will just make an Easter Card and I remembered this image. Then I made my girlfriend’s card (see post before this one) and took the saying I put on hers and changed it to fit Dale:

Hoping your Easter world
is bright and colorful,
weird and crazy,
ornery and special…

…just like you.

I decided it fit my brother too so I hit him a card also!

I used sketch #6 at the Cardmakers Card Challenge @ (the original sketch is from i {heart} sketches #120).

So I found Gerda Steiner Designs while looking for examples of pig stamps out there since that was the theme I chose for the March Inspirational Card Challenge @ She has clear, rubber and digital stamps so something for everyone. While looking around on her site I found the monthly challenge… which I love monthly challenges. A digi stamp is posted each month and you have to make a project using it. Then you will get next months stamp FREE!! So I decided to “hop” in this month (pun intended) and purchase this cute rabbit so I could play along. I thought he would make a cute Easter card and he did. I sent it to my best friend in Kansas City as I’m still trying to send her a card a month.

The images only come in outline so I had to bat my eyelashes at my husband and ask really nice to color this up for me in Photoshop. He did and somehow always knows what colors to use. I just happen to have the perfect doodlebug paper from YEARS ago that matched it.

I used sketch #2 that was posted on the March Card Sketch Challenge (Kathy101) @ It doesn’t say where the original sketch came from. I didn’t follow it exact but you can see the sketch…that’s what I love about sketches…they start your creativity but you aren’t bound to stick to the exact sketch.

Happy Easter, Happy Spring! Happy Happy Everything!

So Easter threw me for a loop being a week after St. Patrick’s Day. So today I had to make several cards as I knew a couple ladies at the retirement apartment wanted to buy some. With trying to use up my supplies I decided the bunnies on the 10-12 year old patterned paper would look cute peeping out of boxes. So with a little fussy cutting…I got a  cute card out of old patterned paper! I also used up pieces of cardstock before cutting new sheets so that is why different colors are used in different places on the two cards. I made 4 all together and will probably make more!

1) March Inspirational Card Challenge @ – Inspirational Photo #1 category.
2) March Card Sketch Challenge (Kathy101) – sketch #4 which was originally a Pagemaps sketch.
3) Clear it Out Challenge March 8th – Theme: anything goes. Stash: patterned paper over a year old. Mine is 10-12 years at least!!

Bunnies: cut from patterned paper – Treehouse-Designs (Q191 Easter Bunnies)
Cardstock: Bazzill (blue bell, Pollen, Petunia, Snap Dragon, White)
Accents/ Tools: Darice Embossing Folder (Wire Fence), Cuttlebug Embossing folder, twine, 1/16 EK Success Pop Dots


Anything Goes with a Birthday card and Easter card


Penny’s Paper-Crafty Challenge this week is Anything Goes. So I first made the birthday card for a friends brother in-law and decided it fit my father-in-law so I made him one too!

Great Outdoors Birthday

Then I decided to make a card for the Word Art Wednesday Challenge so I will share it at Penny’s Paper-Crafty Challenge also.


There is free Word Art of this scripture on the blog but it didn’t fit the space I had since it was more of horizontal sentiment. So I tried to mimic what she did and made it vertical. When I saw this scripture it made me think of this digital image by Deedee’s Digis so that is why I went with it.

1) Word Art Wednesday – uplifting project

2) Penny’s Paper-Crafty Challenge #221 – Anything Goes

3) 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #240 – Easter

4) April Card Challenge @ – Favorites – used a sketch from last month (Mojo Monday Sketch #361)

Happy Easter

I just got this card done in the nick of time to enter in the From the Heart – Digital Stamp of the Month Challenge. I have been wanting to rejoin the challenge but just haven’t had time. But this month I thought I would have time and then I almost didn’t! I might regret staying up late but so glad I got it done. This month’s digital Stamp was adorable….
