HAPPY 150TH BIRTHDAY CANADA

On July 1st we in Canada, will be celebrating our country’s 150th Birthday!  Yes, Canada is 150 years young and there are lots of celebrations planned around the country.

I decided to use the Colorful Seasons Bundle to create a special card for my own celebration of this special time!

The maple leaf dies in the matching Seasonal Layers Thinlits were just crying out to be used so I followed along with the Freshly Made Sketches 291 layout to create this pretty card.

 Here’s the full list of products that I used.  The Thick Whisper White cardstock worked perfectly.  If you need to stock up yourself, just click on the picture to go directly to my online store.

FLOWERS FOR EASTER

It’s the start of a long Easter weekend so I made this flowers for Easter card.

I used our Window Sheets to cover the oval opening and the flower from Butterfly Basics was coloured with Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen.

We do need to create using flowers as a theme up here as the meteorologists tell us to expect up to 25cm of snow today.  Ugh, Life in the northeaster part of British Columbia!

Here is a full list of all the products that I used.

A BUNNY IN A BASKET

Happy day to you and I’m sharing this cute little bunny in a basket to add a little “awwww” to your day.

It took 3 stamp sets to create this cute card but it was worth it.  I started off with the Basket of Wishes stamp set because I needed something for that cute little bunny to sit in.  He comes from the Made with Love stamp set and it was all finished off with a simple greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

The background designer paper is from Playful Palette and looks a lot like easter eggs so was the perfect choice to set off the bunny in a basket.

I think this card will qualify for The Paper Players theme challenge this week which is “easter bunnies”.

Here’s the list of products for you.

HERE’S A SIMPLE EASTER CARD FOR YOU

Easter is coming quickly so I got creative with the Little Cuties and Made with Love stamp sets for today’s card.

The Little Cuties has the chick image that I was looking for and then it was easy to add that cute little bunny from the Made with Love set.  When I was finished I decided that it needed a little something else, so pulled out the Subtles and 2016-2018 InColor Enamel shapes to finish it off.

I also used the Basic Black and Blushing Bride Markers to add a tiny bit of detail to that sweet bunny.

This whole card started with the great sketch from Freshly Made Sketches I love the simplicity of it.

Here’s the full list of products that I used for you.

FANCY IS AS FANCY DOES

I’m moving from birthdays today to a fancy card.  The Paper Players posted a “Black Tie” challenge and so this card has a lovely lady all dressed up and ready to celebrate the new year.

www.cynthiascreativecorner.comIt took several tries to get the picture done without glare – there is a lot of Silver Foil paper on this card!  I paper-pieced her dress with silver foil(is silver lame in style?) and coloured the hem and waistband with the Melon Mambo assortment Blendabilities.  The rest of her used the Skin Tone Assortment.

How did I get those stripes – I used the Stylish Stripes embossing folder on a piece of silver foil and then used the Stampin’ Trimmer to cut each stripe – easy!

HERE COMES PETER COTTONTAIL…..

Hoppin’ down the bunny trail!  LOL, did you know that Easter is only a few days away – 8 till Good Friday actually.  I don’t normally send cards for Easter but the little bunny image in Baby, We’ve Grown is so cute to I made a “herd” of them.

 Don’t they look cute?!  I actually looked it up at www.ask.com to find out if “herd” is the correct term to describe a bunch of bunnies – it is!

I used the masking technique to get my herd of bunnies(post-it notes work well) and found the greeting in a old favourite stamp set, Teeny Tiny Wishes.

The layout is pretty simple and I love the look of the Starburst Framelits surrounding those bunnies!
