Hoppy Easter

SUO94Hoppy Easter!  It’s time for another SUO challenge and this time the theme is “It’s Easter Time”.

So…okay…here’s the story.  I LOVE the little rabbit in the Baby We’ve Grown set but I did not buy the set.  If you look at the set and look at my card you are probably thinking that my card is really small.  NOPE!  My rabbit is BIG!  How’s that you say?  Well…this is a HYBRID card!

Here’s the details…

  • Pink Pirouette – 4 5/8 x 9 folded run through the large scalloped Square Framelit
  • Pink Pirouette – 4 5/8 x 4 5/8 and run through the large scalloped Square Framelit.  Add this to the front of the folded one so that it gives the base the full square scallop framelit look.
  • Design the panel with the rabbit and HOPPY Easter in MDS.  My panel is 3 5/8 x 3 5/8.  My rabbit is 3″ high and is from the Baby, We’ve Grown digital set.  Easter is from Well Scripted digital set.  I just typed in HOPPY.  This is printed out on Whisper White and trimmed to the 3 5/8 x 3 5/8.
  • Color the rabbit using Pink Pirouette. I used Pink Pirouette, Wisteria Wonder and Pear Pizzazz markers to make the strips on its belly.  The end of the paws and bow tie is Wisteria Wonder.
  • Add to Wisteria Wonder 3 3/4 x 3 3/4 and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Take a piece of Pear Pizzazz dsp 3 5/8 x 3/4.  I cut the top on a wavy line then used my fringe scissors to create grass.  This is added to the bottom of the pane.
  • The sun is made from a 1″ So Saffron dsp piece then So Saffron banners using the SAB Banner Punch (which will be available in the new catalog).  This is added using a dimensional to finish it off.

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team did with punches.  Everyone had such a unique take on this!

Tour de Freaks – Sept


Welcome to the September Tour de Freaks where we are all about HALLOWEEN!!!!  If you are going forward through the hop you arrived here from Wendy Weixler’s Wickedly Wonderful Creations Blog.  Weren’t the project just wonderful?

So…I was thinking about what to do for Halloween and I really didn’t buy that much from the mini and then I said to myself…why not do some My Digital Studio stuff?  I love using MDS because there are so many ways to adjust the images and to use them.  So that is what I did.  The other GREAT thing about MDS?  The stuff NEVER retires!  COOL!!!  So let’s start with my card…

HalloweenCardThe base of the card is Summer Starfruit.  I took a piece of the Witches Brew dsp, layered on Basic Black and then to the card front.  Next I added a thin black banner then a thicker Summer Starfruit banner.  The images were all done in MDS, printed out on Very Vanilla and cut out.  I layered the ‘celebrate’ label on Basic Black, added a Basic Black Artisan Label punch piece on the top and bottom and added to the card front using dimensionals.  The Halloween banner was also done in MDS, printed of and added using dimensionals.  The bats were made from the ‘BEWARE’ oval image in MDS.  I got rid of the ‘extra’ around it, made bigger.  I added some Rhinestones to finish it off.  The digital sets I used were…Halloween Bash and Spooky Central Design Ensemble (the little spider on a web that I added to it).

HalloweenFrameSo now for my very favorite of my two projects…a cute little Halloween frame!  I found this frame at Michael’s and I thought it would make a perfect little Halloween frame and I was right!  The central panel is made like the card…just bigger!  I love making something once then being able to resize!  I used the Decorative Label Punch on the top and bottom.  In my top little panel I used a Pumpkin Pie Artisan Label, the BEWARE scallop oval resized and colored and then added the bat.  The cat is from the digital Spooky Bingo Bits layered on a Summer Starfruit 1 1/4″ Circle.  The the bottom panel is Pumpkin Pie Bracket Label, digital pumpkin from Halloween Happiness and the admit one from Halloween Bash.  Now I did use A TON of dimensionals on this…lots of dimension on this!  I wrapped some dsp around the outside of the frame and then added a fake ‘handle’ on the top out of Basic Black.  Rhinestones were added to finish things off!

So…how much fun are those!  I just LOVE MDS and all the things you can do with it. Mostly I just using things for hybrid projects but they always turn out just so COOL!!!!!

So now it’s time to head on over to Jason’s Stampin’ Pad.  He has some great Halloween cards for you!


Until next time…HAPPY STAMPIN’!

Hugs & Fishes

CASologySo…what do you do when you REALLY want to join in a challenge but the theme is FISHES and you have NOTHING to use?  Well…you make it a MDS (My Digital Studio) Hybrid of course!

I soooo wanted to do the CASology challenge this week but I don’t have a single fish so I thought I’d see what I had in MDS…sure enough…a cut little fish!  Then I saw the hugs and kisses stamp and what can I say…the rest is history as the saying goes.

So the base of the card is Whisper White and I pierced a circle in there.  The hugs and kisses image was from the All Holidays Digital set and I colored it Basic Grey.  The fish was from the Digital On the Go set.  I resized and colored in Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe and Coastal Cabana.  I printed the images out, punched out the greeting using the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch and mounted using dimensionals.  The fish were added then a did a couple of Basic Rhinestones for ‘bubbles’.  So..MDS to the RESCUE!!!  And now I have a little fishy card!

This is my second post for today so make sure you check out my fun (and CAS) card here.  We are having such fun during Preview Week at Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection 2013 this week and don’t want you to miss anything! So check it out!
