Easter Treats

The year is just flying by--here it is almost Easter!! But over at the Sisters in Stamping blog we have put together some Easter candy ideas. Here is my 3D item for this Fabulous Friday--

I filled my little milk carton with malted milk Easter eggs (get it?? malted milk in a milk carton!) I thought that was very clever. The Designer Series Paper is called Twitterpated and I made my carton with one of the InColors, Island Indigo.
I used some of the new Designer Builder brads (pg.12, Spring Mini Catalog) to add a little bling to the front of my carton.
Make sure you go over to the Sisters in Stamping to see what the others have come up with!
Thanks for stopping by, Karla c(:

Moving Cards from the Sisters in Stamping

It's my week over at the Sisters in Stamping blog and I picked Moving Cards for our assignment. Moving cards are always a favorite of mine and this one is the best! I have heard this card called a Secret Message Card, but I can't find any tutorials on, I must have the name wrong. If you know the correct name of this moving card leave me a note, thanks! (Update 5/10/2013: Thank-you Prisha for the link to a tutorial...see the comments below.)

  Here is the front of my card, the base is white 8 1/2x 5 1/2. Two panels make the front More Mustard 5 1/4 x 4 and So Saffron 5x 3 3/4, I ran that piece through the new Honeycomb Embossing Folder.
 This is the inside of my card. I made two slits (side to side) 2" from the top and 2" with from the bottom using my new paper cutter. I wove 2 strips of So Saffron (2 pieces, 2 x 5 1/2) between the slits
 Fold those two panels into the inside of the card....
 ...and, you will find the secret panels that you can write your message in. I stamped some bees and left my Secret Message on a punched circle.
Here is the Secret Panel Card completely opened. This card is best given in person so you can show the recipient how to retrieve their message!
Happy Stamping, Karla c(:

Easter Cards for this Week!

It's Rachel's week over at the Sisters in Stamping blog and she has picked Easter Cards as our focus for this week's Fabulous Friday post. Here is my card--
I just love this set! It's called Everybunny and I was SO happy to see it in this year's Idea Book & Catalog (pg.25). I used Regal Rose, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight and Sahara Sand cardstock to punch my Scallop Squares ( IB&C pg.183, #119884, $16.95). Using the same color ink pads I watercolored my adorable little bunny with blender pens (IB&C pg.178, #102845, $9.95).

Make sure you stop by the Sisters blog to see what the others have for Easter!

Happy Stamping! Karla c(:

Participating Sisters in Freshly Made Sketch

Well hello! This week for the Sisters in Stamping blog we are all joining in on the Freshly Made Sketch for this week (FMS75). This is a BRAND new thing for the Sisters! Here is my card --
I used a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Print Poetry Stack (pg.16 of the Spring Mini Catalog, #129312) and one of the Sale-A-Bration Stamp sets called Feeling Sentimental. I turned the Sketch on its side and everything fell right into place! Best of all it is totally flat and ready to mail...gotta love that!

Thank-you for coming by!
Happy Stamping, Karla c(:
