It's a Girl CASE

What a Sweet and Sassy Thursday this is going to be!  That's because Sweet and Sassy is our CASE study challenge sponsor this week.  So if you want to win some sweet digi's and get a card made at the same time then hop on over to CASE study challenge blog and play along.
Here's the card to CASE
I turned it on it's side for my CASE
I used the really adorable "Little Bunny" stamp set from PSA Essentials to make this card.  Isn't the Zebra a little cutie??  I thought it would make him girly by colouring the strips pink.

Easter Greetings

I love how this card card turned out.  I printed the Simple Bunny from Whimsie Doodles and stamped the text directly onto the printed bunny.  The rest of the card is decorated using Spellbinders Parisian Dies.
I've entered this card in the Die Cut Diva's challenge #8 of making an Easter card.  If your into die cuts and cartridges then you'll love the inspiration at Die Cut Diva's.  I was so glad I found it.

Happy Birthday

Happy Sunday!  I can't believe this is the last week of March already.  I have a card for you to see that I made using Our Craft Lounge's newest release Circus Circus.
I used the circus tent and stamped on designer paper, then I cut the top off and coloured some of the stripes in orange.  Now it's a stand for the cute little elephant!  This set has sentiments for birthday, invitation and baby cards.

Happy Spring

Well I loved the There She Goes sketch so much that I made a second card for the challenge.  This time I used Our Craft Lounge's stamp set Pea-nut Bunny to make the card.  Pea-nut is just such an adorable little elephant I was thrilled to be working with him/her.  I used chalk to add blush to the cheeks and ears.  I find chalk gives such a soft and blended look that's perfect for cheeks.  The blue cardstock was actually white that I coloured with Copic BG01.
