The Peeps Have Hatched (mini treat totes)

I made a few last minute Easter treats for my Bible study Group...
I hope they like Reeses Peanut Butter eggs!
I made them bright and cheery with pretty designer Paper
and a little bit of PUNCH ART.
(Wide Oval Punch and the Bird Builder Punch).

The little Mini Treat Holder was cased from Becky Roberts
who I meet at Convention last year,
and she got the idea from Dawn O.
and I put my little touch on it.

Here is a little diagram of the measurements

Start with a 4 3/4" x 4 1/4" piece of card stock,
I used Marina Mist
 Score on the 4 3/4" side @ 2" & 2 3/4"
Score on the 4 1/4" side @ 3/4 & 3 1/2"
Cut the score lines @ 3/4" & 3 1/2" but

Fold Flaps inward and adhere with glue to form a rectangle.
Fold Up Large side panels and adhere to sides of
small rectangle.

You are now ready to decorate with a patterned  Designer Paper layer
cut 2 1/2" x 1 3/4"

Now you can decorate as you like by punching a 1/4" hole in the top,
string a little ribbon and decorate with a little Peep.

I hope you have fun with this and my other Easter projects.
and Thanks to Dawn for creating this fun mini tote idea!

Ears to You! Treat Holder

Here's Another Project from my recent Easter Stamp Camp using the 
Stampin'Up single stamp " ears to you !"
I just love how this turned out in the Spring colors and how the
pastel Peanut M&M's look so perfect as little Easter Eggs.
Oh, did I mention that Peanut M&M's are my PERSONAL FAVORITE.
sooooo, that meant for every 4 packed in the bag, 
one got packed in my mouth!
O.k. some of you know what I mean...
truly I can't be the only one who does that!!!

Don't you just Love those cute little butterflies, I just love having both
sizes of the Butterfly punches. I love the yellow one and how it really POPS
against the Purple color.
( Purple and Yellow are opposite on the color wheel and are
called complimentary colors, that is why they work so well together)

Nature Walk Collage

I'm guessing I'm really a NATURE girl at heart!
So it makes sense that the Nature Walk set is one of 
my favorite Stampin'Up sets!
I think I especially love having the choice of 
7 stamp sets to create whatever I want, kind of like having
lots of ingredients for a recipe.
It really is the perfect set to make collage style cards
like the one I've done for todays card.
And why not cheat a little and make it even easier by following this weeks
 color and sketch challenges at the following sites.
Thank You for the inspiration Ladies!

Sale-A-Bration's Smarty Pants becomes Cute Overalls

Today I'm  S T R E T C H I N G  the 
stamp set 
and making a pair of OVERALLS with it!
How fun is that?
and It's EASY too!

1. Stamp the jeans TWICE in Pacific Point ink on 2 small scraps of white paper.
2. Cut out one full pair of jeans along inked design with SU Paper Snips.
    You'll never go back to other scissors once you have used these!
3. On the second pair, draw in 2 shoulder straps (rectangles)with a Pacific Point
    Stampin' Write Marker.
4. Cut off the legs of this pair just 1/4 below the crotch line ( this will give you
    a little tab to attach under the waistband of the full pair of jeans.
5. Trim around the edges of the image including the straps.
    * TIP *  if you want a trimmer waistline as my example has, simply
                taper the torso from the armpits down to the waist on each side....
      kinda like 50 crunches a day for weeks..LOL
6. Now glue the upper part of the jeans 1/4 tab to the full pair attaching it
     under the waistband.
7. Apply a couple of rhinestones where the straps meet the bib.

I kinda went CRAZY with this card but started my idea with the 

2013 Thursday Challenges-006
It was fun using several colors from the Brights Collection...
Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, and Regal Rose, 
especially since it coordinates so well 
with the patterned paper from the Spring Catalog

Use Paper snips to cut away Sections of the Honey Comb Embossing folder 
to make the faux scalloped edges.
