Happy Easter Wreaths & FF0080

I’m LOVING my Easter Wreaths! The card above I added butterflies (retired stamp set) to the tag label so I could participate with the Festive Friday #FF0080 Challenge! I chose BRIGHT COLORS, RIBBON, & BUTTERFLIES from the INSPO LIST. I basically CASEd (copy and share everything) this wreath from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog from page 127. I tweaked it and made it my own! There is A LOT of inspiration in the Stampin’ Up! catalogs! I used the Arrange A Wreath Bundle to create my cards. By the way, this bundle is on the Last Chance List and WILL NOT be in the NEW 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. You’ll be able to still purchase this bundle through May 3 or while supplies last! Also be sure to check out the Festive Friday Challenge #FF0080 to see all the wonderful cards created by others!

Here are my first two cards (below) that I created using the Arrange A Wreath Bundle. The one with the grass on the bottom is for my granddaughter, Theä! She is going to LOVE her card! I also added Bumblebee Enamel Dots to the Daffodil Delight flowers on the wreath on her card. For all the other flower centers, I punched out Flirty Flamingo little circles using a retired punch. This is where I definitely use my Take Your Pick tool for picking up those itty bitty circles and then putting them into place in the middle of those little flowers! I placed of drop of glue, using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen, in the center of the flowers first. I used a retired die set, Basket Builder Framelits Dies, for the grass. I primarily used TomBow Multipurpose Glue to adhere everything except the little flowers and centers. For that I used the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. LOVE THAT STUFF! By the way, you can use the Clear Block B or the Stamparatus for stamping all the images.

NOTE: The 1-1/2″ Circle Punch & Arrange A Wreath Bundle is on the Last Chance List!

It’s a Panda Easter & Festive Friday Challenge #FF0003!

 

It's a Panda Easter, Party Pandas, #soinkingsweet, #thesweetinker, #tonyadenton, hand stamped card, Happy Easter

Easter is just around the corner so I needed to create a cute card for my granddaughter, Theä. She is four years old and loves receiving cards from her Grammie, which is me! I created a unique Easter card using the Panda Party Stamp Set from our Sale-A-Bration brochure. I knew what I had in mind with the Easter Egg in place of the balloon but I struggled with the rest. It takes me a while to create from my own imagination but that’s okay. I always like a challenge.

UPDATE!! I was chosen as one of three Festive Friday Faves in #FF0003 challenge!! WooHoo!!
