Hippity Hoppity Easter's On it's Way!

These are the projects we made at our monthly Serenity Stampers card and craft class .
Included stamp sets: Egg Hunt roller wheel , An Egg-cellent Easter and
" A Good Egg" all of these sets are available for order right now!

This card turned out so cute! We made it using my new circle scissors plus. Okay girls there definately was a learning curve! abig one especially for me and I was teaching the project!! LOL! I learned this layout recently at our Directs meeting from Lisa Curcio. She was over the other day for a stamp day and I got a little extra tutorial on it. So I felt brave enough to choose it for my class card. Practice, Patience and Perserverance, but totally worth it. Once you get the hang of it it is easy peasy. Tip: The line with dimensions on it, where you can hardly see it. Take a peice of white label maker tape and stick it underneath the numbers and it pops out the numbers where you can see them really good.
Stamps: An Egg-cellent Easter, Egg Hunt roller wheel
Card stock: Amethyst, So Saffron. Certainly Celery, Watercolor paper, Tea Party Designer Paper, Pretty in Pink
Ink: same colors in re-inkers and blender pen
Accessories:circle scissors plus, tag is from the match box die cut, So Saffron striped ribbon,rhinestone brads, 2 way glue and dazzling diamonds, Xyron machine, eyelet scallop
I saw an idea similar to this on SCS and my friend Lisa and I were playing around in my stamp studio and this is our version we came up with. The Flower Daises Die Cut was absolutely perfect for this! Thanks to my friend Sue for letting me borrow it. She will be on vacation for 3 weeks so I will have all kinds of goodies for her by the time she gets back.
Card stock: Tea Party Designer Paper,Pretty in Pink, So Saffron,Certainly Celery,white
Ink: Same
Accessories:Daisies Sizzix Die Cut, Scallop oval punch, 1" inch circle punch, glue dots, dimensionals, paper bag(from Michael's)

side view: I filled my bag with candy for Easter, but I see this as a GREAT Mother's Day gift with handmade cards for Mom or a friend!

Another card lay out we learned at directs meeting the Hinge card!
I used "A Good Egg Stamp Set" Tea Party Designer paper, all of the coordinating colors.
We stamped the egg on glossy paper with black stazon and used the SU markers to color it in and quickly used the blender pens to blend the color while the markers are still wet to give it that smooth look.
Then we used the Xyron machine and ran the image through upside down and peeled the adhesive off the image and put the dazzling diamonds all over, it looks so smooth. Use the photo corners to give the paper some weight when pulling the top hinge of the card back. Used a rhinestone brad to adhere the hinge.

This a wonderful gift my dear friend Frances a serenity stamper who attended class that day gave me for my Easter present, fresh homemade salsa! It's awesome!! Being the crafty lady she is of course she had to decorate the jar and finished the ensemble off with a box I taught at our New Years Day craft class! I love it when my stampers learn a project and then make one and show it to me and even better I get it as a present!! What a treat! Thank you, Frances. I love it!!
