Saying Good-bye to Chalk Talk…

Today’s card was done with another set that is retiring at the end of the month: “Chalk Talk“. (Make sure to order it before May 26 if you like it! After that, it will be too late!!!)  Chalk Talk is a stamp set that matches the Chalk Talk Framelits dies.

I also used two other stamp sets, “Gorgeous Grunge” (for the ink splatters) and “Be the Star” for the star images.

Chalk Talk #130634 Clear or #130631 Wood (on sale now for $23.96 Reg. $31.95)

“Bunny” Hamburger Box perfect for Easter!!!

Have you seen this Hamburger Box Bigz XL die in the Stampin’up catalogue? It’s such a fun way to make your own box!!! I made this design for Easter and I think you will like it as much as I do!!!

I wanted to add some dimension to my bunny face, so I used white cotton balls, a pink pompom and big googly eyes (from your local craft store or Dollar store). I cut 2 ears out of Whisper White card stock and color the center with a Pink Pirouette marker. The whiskers are made with 2 tiny strips of Basic Black card stock, attached in the center under my pink pompom.

Sheltering Tree “Spring” card

I’ve been away for a while, busy with life!!! The end of ski season was really busy with my kids in ski competition!

I have a perfect “Spring” card for you today. I made it with the new “Sheltering Tree” stamp set. I love that set because you can change the tree to fit any season! I also used the Butterfly from my favorite set called “Butterfly Basics” that also have matching Thinlits and beautiful detailed Butterflies!

For the background, I used the “Hardwood” background stamp, with White craft ink.
