Layered Easter Egg - BittenByTheBug2

Hello and happy Monday! We are just about at the end of March and Lent is in well under way. It's definitely time to think about Easter crafts. This cute egg shaped card is a great start to my Easter card stash for families and friends. It also happens to be an Easter challenge for the BittenByTheBug2 challenge blog and this is my creation for it.

This egg is made from a Miss Kate Cuttables file called Easter Eggs. It's available free with Access subscription. There are many cute files in the cartridge and this is just one of the four eggs in the file called Layered Easter Eggs.

Below are all the pieces of the card before I put it together. The measurement is 5" x 6 1/4." The foiled sentiment was made using the new Foil Quill from WeRMemory Keepers. The image is called Happy Easter Draw and it's from the Greeting Card Sentiments cartridge. I created a circle shape around the sentiment and foiled the words and the circle before cutting it out as a 2" circle. If you're interested in learning about this new product and an honest review and demo, please visit the video found at the end of this post. 
This is not a card file but I converted it into a card by cutting one extra cut of the large scallop piece in cream. I scored this at the top about 1/2" to create the hinge that makes this card base.

Spring Owl with Beebeecraft and Dollar Tree

Hope you're having a great start to your weekend. I have started a Fast Friday series over on my YouTube channel. It is a quick 3 minute tutorial and is meant to give you some inspiration without spending a lot of time. We're all short of time so I hope you enjoy it. 

This card went together so quickly thanks to the beautiful ribbon and butterfly rhinestone charm from Beebeecraft and the cute owl stickers from the Dollar Tree. 

Happy weekend everyone!

Lucky Irish Window Card - Bitten By The Bug2 Blog Post

Hello everyone! Well St. Patty's Day is this coming Sunday and I've got a cute card to give to your sweetie to remind them how lucky you are to have them in your life- (or maybe he/she is the lucky one! ;)  

This is a fun card pattern from MyScrapChick. It's called a Gold Coin card (click here for link). I altered it a bit by making it larger - a full 5 inches square. The pattern includes the print and cut shamrock wreath and a printed sentiment that says Lucky. I decided to use the blank sentiment included and used a different font for the Lucky Phrase. I also decided to use a St. Patrick's Day embellishment sticker set by K&Company. The hat, pot of gold and the gems on the card are from this pack. I used the included shamrock from the pattern on the envelope and put the horseshoe from the sticker pack on top of it. This made a super cute card! 

Here's the card and the chunky envelope I made for it showing the liner.
I cut the envelope from a MyScrapChick pattern as well. It's called Chunky Square Envie (click here for link) and it includes a liner pattern as well. I sized this to fit my 5" card too.

I'll show you how I sized and cut all the pieces for this card and envelope on my video tutorial. You can find it by clicking on the thumbnail below. If it gives you any trouble, you can use this direct link instead (click here for video).
Thanks for stopping by today. See you soon and keep crafting!

Fast Friday Cardmaking - House Mouse Birthday Card!

Hello everyone! Well, it's Friday and that means it's time for my next Fast Friday video tutorial. 
I really love the Stampendous House Mouse stamp line. Don't you? I mean yes, they're mice but come on! They are still adorable!

A few weeks ago, Stampendous held a blog featuring House Mouse and my name was picked from the comments to win a giveaway. Yay!! I never win anything. I was SO excited to hear I'd won! I was allowed to choose any new stamp from the January catalog and I picked this one called, Birthday Splash. I really loved the image of the cake! That is one determined little mouse and one really helpful buddy. They're going to make that mouse's birthday wishes come true. 

This card is 5 x 5 and is matted with an orange mat and a green mat from the Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes collection. I really love that paper. It's a great background for no work. Can't beat that!

I used a Spellbinders tag die called Renaissance and mounted my little mice on that with foam tape. I colored my mice using Spectrum Noir markers and accented the card with Dew Drops, star sequins and a few crystals from Studio Katia.

Have a GREAT Friday and a wonderful start to your weekend!
