Easter! It's all about Jesus!

Hi y'all. I'm back with another Easter card to share today. This one was cased from a wonderful Stampin' Up demo France Martin. It is one of my favorite because Easter is all about what Jesus did for you and me on the cross.
Same card with a little different color scheme. I really like the darker one with the Elegant Eggplant cross and frame. I also like the petite petal flowers around the frame in the second card. The cross is made with the lattice Bigz die.
Here's a short picture tutorial on how to cut the cross.

  Turn the lattice on an angle. Trim away the four oval petals on each side and the bottom three. I trim away then go back and with my good paper snips trim close following the curve of the ovals. Hope this helps and you enjoy making this card as much as I did.  Be blessed and go bless someone else and then you will be truly blessed.

Spring is in the Air!

Well, that is a true statement, but if you live in our neck of the woods, that can mean anything! One thing for sure, everything is yellow with pollen and the temps are all over the place. Highs in the 80's one day and 60's the next. But right around the corner is the glorious celebration of Easter! I love Easter...it's right up there with Christmas. As a follower of Jesus Christ, Easter is an overwhelming picture of God's love, mercy and grace toward me a sinner. I also love the fun of Easter. CANDY! and colored eggs and Easter egg hunts and PEEPS! As you share this time with your love ones and friends, I hope you will relax, enjoy the new life spring offers, reflect on what is most important and be an encouragement to those around you. Great seg-way, Dixie Bell, (my new Red Hat name)! One way to brighten someone's day is with a hand made, hand written card! Surprise, y'all thought I had forgotten this was a Stamping blog- of sorts anyway! Nope, just wanted to share my heart first. So I have several Easter Cards to share over the next few days. I'll start with the traditional and what is more traditional at Easter than tulips? Well, lilies might be, but we are doing tulips this year!

I love this shabby chic look. 
Cardstock is Pink Pirouette and Very Vanilla
Ink is Crumb Cake for the distressing and Black Stazon  for the stamp. I colored the tulips with a blender pen and Strawberry Slush is the darker ink and Pink Pirouette is the lighter one. The green is Gumball Green. The oval was cut with the oval framelits and the Big Shot and the embossing was done with the tulip frame embossing folder. The trim is the awesome Strawberry Slush stretch trim and a button with linen thread.
Who wouldn't love to get this card in the mail!

Okay, that about wraps it up for this southern girl. If you have been just a little inspired leave me a note and let me know. Makes my day!!!!
Now go be a blessing to someone else and you will be truly blessed! God love ya!

Trick or Treat

Good morning friends,
It is a beautiful "Fall" morning in Dixieland. Actually, we are getting some really nice, cool temps this am. I have a cute Halloween Treat to share with y'all today. One of my hostess clubs made these this month, they are really simple and cute!

Materials: Chalk Talk Bread Tag framelit, Owl punch, Hexagon punch, Basic Black 1\8 inch ribbon and White Baker's Twine.         
Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, and  Tangerine Tango
Ink: Basic Black and  Tangerine Tango
Stamp sets: Halloween Hello and Perfectly You Hostess set (131877)
Directions: I cut the tag with the Big Shot, Stamped it with the Bat from Halloween Hello in Basic Black.
The ghost is made by punching out a white owl with the owl builder punch and trimming off the feet. 
Use the middle size circles for eyes and the heart for the mouth out of black. The ghost is popped up on a dimensional  and attached to the bread tag. The Hey Pumpkin is stamped with Tangerine Tango on a scrape of Whisper White  and punched out with the hexagon punch. It is adhered with snail adhesive at the bottom of the tag. The cello bag has 2 graham crackers, 2 chocolate nuggets and a Peep ghost.This is tied with the 1\8 inch Basic Black ribbon and White Bakers Twine.

Hope you like this and it inspires you to create a cute Halloween project. Have a blessed day, Thank you for stopping by, I always look forward to your comments- so leave me one!!!Thanks- God Bless you real good.

Here comes another one, just like the other one....Strut Miss Susie...

Do any of you remember that song or games? We played it at school and Girl Scouts back in the dark ages! What you ask does this have to do with my blog post today? Absolutely nothing!!!! Just one of those random memories that come racing back at times. I was pondering a title for this post and kept thinking-another pink card, when all of a sudden I was singing Strut Miss Susie! So, there you go!
Now, on to the business at hand. Yes, another PINK card for the LINK UP for PINK challenge. This one I literally used scraps on my desk from the previous cards I made this month. (That's were the here comes another one...came from)
This picture is not great and I don't know why. The strips were created with the Melon Mambo design washi tape from the Gingham Garden package. The ribbon is also Melon Mambo 1/8 inch striped ribbon with a black brad at the center of the bow. Butterflies and flowers what could be more girly than that. The framelit is labels and the flower from Flower Shop stamp set. Hope you like it.
On another note, until the 21st of Oct. You can join Stampin' Up for only 25.00. If you are interested in ordering your supplies at a discount or building your own business please contact me and let me show you the ropes! I'd love to have you on my team! Thanks for stopping by, God bless you, now go bless those around you and you will be truly blessed.

Having a good time

Hey girls,
I have been having such a good time in my craft room this week, it's unbelievable! Lately, I realized I have been working in here only to get ready for hostess clubs, craft fairs or something pressing. Well, this last week I have just been playing and enjoying stamping and I remembered how much I really love to stamp! It has been relaxing and reinvigorating! The card I am sharing with you today my Stampin' Sistas hostess club did this month. It is also a LINK up for Pink card. So can you guess what color it is? Yep! PINK. Specifically, Strawberry Slush and Pink Pirouette with a little Primrose Petal thrown in and I love it! It's a great girl card without being "too girly". Let me know what you think. I alway enjoy your comments. Stamp sets are Simply Stars and Bootiful Occasions. God bless and have a great day.
