Happy Easter Everybody!

I hope you are having a lovely Easter - here is a card I made combining ideas from a couple of different people... I love these carrots made from the Trendy Trees set!  On my final copy I ran the basket & handle through the lattice square folder which made it way better but I forgot to take a picture :-( 
I borrowed the oval frame die to cut the basket. And I used lots of punches on the bunny! 1 3/4" circle, 1/2" circle, large oval for the feet and the boho blossom punch for his tail. Too cute!

Fabric Covered Bookmarks

Aren't these adorable? These bookmarks are one of the projects that stamp club members got to make this month. We used the Sizzix adhesive sheets to make a piece of card stock sticky, then we stuck the fabric on before running the whole piece through the Big Shot. It looked great just like that! Then I broke out a different type of sticky paper - the sticky sheets that are made from the same material as sticky strip. I wanted to punch out a circle but, in the past, I've found the red rubbery overlay too thick to punch. But I had a brainwave (first ever!) I pulled off the red layer and stuck on a piece of card stock instead. Then I could punch through! I peeled off the backing and got my Melon Mambo Pom-pom trim and laid it around the edge of the sticky circle, TOO CUTE!  Then all you have to do is stick a button or ribbon in the middle and you have this lovely embellishment. I punch out a circle of turquoise card stock using the Scallop punch that fits exactly inside the top of the tag. And I used Puffies (Stampin' Dimensionals) to attach the card stock and the button embellishment. I just love these! And this fabric is so... cute! I entered into a quilt block swap and I'm using this fabric. I've never quilted ANYTHING before so I'm in that "What was I thinking?" place right now but I'm excited too! I'll have to show you what I come up with...

This fabric and the pom-pom trim is in the Occasions mini that ends in less than 2 weeks so if you need anything be sure to let me know! Or you can shop online here

Have a great week! Brenda
