Matchbox/Easel Card

I made this CUTE little box for a 3D swap that I did last Friday with my Demonstrator group.  I had seen a few different ones online and just had to do one with the NEW upcoming Stamp set "Sweet Scoops".  HOW CUTE IS THIS SET!!  This set and many more NEW Stamp sets  will be available on MAY 1ST in the new Summer Mini Catalog.  You are going to LOVE IT !!

This is a sideview so you can see the Easel card.  Oh Ya, and the treats of course!!  LOL
I also used the Big Shot with the Matchbox Die to make the bottom drawer part of the card. I really like the versatility of the Matchbox die.   You can do so many cute items with it. The designer paper is also coming out in the NEW Summer Mini Catalog.

Bunny and Carrot

Isn't He CUTE!

I did this project for our Demonstrators meeting last month.  It was a challenge, but I think that everyone liked the Easter treat holder.  I had seen different version of the treat holder online and then just put a few different ones together to make up this one.  Don't you just LOVE the little guy? For the carrot I used Pumpkin Pie cardstock and the Scallop Square Die with the Big Shot Machine.  The cute little bunny was made with the Full Heart punch (Body and Feet), Large and small oval punches (Ears), Boho Blossom punch (Tail) and the Small Heart punch (Nose). For the Leaves in the back I used the Scallop Oval punch.   As you can tell I really like Punch Art

Let's get you started with the Punch Art.  To order your punches Click Here!

3D Box/Card

3D Box which is a card!
I seen this on a blog when I was surfing one day and just had to do it.  It was sooooo much FUN to do!  I used Summer Sun cardstock for the box itself.  Then I finished it off with Stampin' Up! In colors.  For the stamp sets I used "Happy Everything" and "On a Pedestal".  These are found in the Stampin' Up! Idea/Catalog.  I also added some Pumpkin Pie cardstock and Ink.  I just LOVE the BRIGHT colors!

Inside the box.

As you can see in the picture, I stamped the Cherry's on the Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series paper.  Again love the colors!  These Stamp sets are sooooo fun to play with.  You can do so many different things with them.  You can add them to Scrapbook pages, make Birthday banners with them and cards, where do I begin?  As you can tell I was so excited to make this project.  This is a must for my Technique Thursday club.  I have a technique club that meets once a month and they learn NEW TECHNIQUES with stamping.  You can join us if you would like.  Check out the details here.
